Business Applications – Elian

2021 was first and foremost dedicated to strengthening the team and improving the delivery capacity in projects. We invested in the recruitment process and we attracted senior resources, which went into production much faster than the average of previous years, decreasing significantly compared to 6 months – the average time before going into production. At the end of 2020 we had a team of 21 employees and collaborators, whereas at the end of 2021 we had 32 employees and collaborators – the new resources being mostly senior resources.

In terms of improving flows and processes during 2021, the position of dedicated Project Manager was created. We thus aim to improve communication with customers as well as to a better coordination of delivery teams per project. All these efforts resulted in a significant increase in turnover in 2021 (35% more compared to 2020), the results being visible especially during the second half, as a result of the efforts made in the first part of the year.

Significant initiatives and projects

MyGeisha, Green PC Ambalaje, and Bayer Strada. We also completed the pre-production processes at Dietsmann, so the customer started using the new solution in January 2022, as planned.

In 2021 we focused on developing the solution for the new D406 statement (also known as the SAF-T), a statement that primarily impacts large taxpayers (who have been required to file a return since January 2022). As a result of our efforts, we was the first partner to complete the development for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central!

Increasingly large companies are opting for “cloud” licensing (subscription) rather than licensing, which has led to an increase in recurring revenue from monthly subscriptions – a trend that we believe will continue over the next period.

We started developing a real estate solution in 2021.

It is also worth mentioning that Elian Solutions extended the certification of Microsoft Gold Partner in 2021.
