Incoming orders with 5 new customers, 60 percent higher than in the same period last year and continued strong trend among exist
Pixelboxx GmbH has closed the first quarter in 2020 with a record order intake. The company, based in Dortmund, can record orders from new and existing customers. For the anniversary year the company, founded in 2000, expects the upswing to continue.
"An increase in incoming orders, well above average, can only be achieved with a team that is well trained and highly motivated. In addition, new products have already been developed in 2019, initiated by the market/customer", explains Pixelboxx CEO Antonius Huerkamp. "On our German core market, but also worldwide, integratable and intelligent software solutions are in demand. In the future we will continue to support our customers in their digitization strategies and thus clearly differentiate ourselves from the competition".
In all market segments, companies today are faced with the challenge of constantly having to adapt to new market conditions. Today, our customers' customers increasingly expect a holistic service experience. If software vendors want to survive in this environment, they have to align their software developments accordingly, and at the same time continuously adapt their offerings to changing customer and market requirements. This is the new orientation of Pixelboxx GmbH and the incoming orders in the first quarter confirm the successful strategy.
The new customers LWL*, Bauformat**, SGK***, Westfleisch**** and Wepa***** rely on the future-oriented company, as well as the existing customers BRAX, Groz-Beckert, KFW and GEZE, who are pushing their companies forward with digitalisation by placing further orders for new features with the support of Pixelboxx.
Due to this positive economic development and the high workload, the Pixelboxx is expanding its resources significantly. In the SW-Development, additional employees were gained at the location in Dortmund. This development is supported by the newly founded joint venture Xcubator, with scalable offshore capacities. The Business Consulting/Sales division was also expanded through successful hiring. The new employees come from the competitor, and are convinced of the vision and future viability of the "new" Pixelboxx GmbH. "This will create the conditions for the implementation of our future strategy and the expansion of our portfolio," says Antonius Huerkamp.
For 20 years the Pixelboxx team has been developing solutions for modern and efficient handling of media files for large and small companies. Since 2000 the product, the Pixelboxx, is successfully used worldwide as a company-wide digital asset management solution. With the new modules and features, which are in development due to the new strategy of the Pixelboxx, the Pixelboxx GmbH will break new ground and extend the offer via an application platform, thus continuing the success of the first quarter.
