An amazing year at e-conomic
2013 is almost over, and I’d like to take the opportunity to look back on a truly amazing year at e-conomic – highlighted by our acquisition by HgCapital, great growth in all areas, and exciting new product initiatives.
The single biggest event of the year was without a doubt the acquisition of e-conomic by HgCapital. We have had a lot of potential suitors over the years, and it’s really great that we have now found new owners who understand and like what we do and want to fuel that further.
With the financial backing of HgCapital we have already made our first venture into new areas by acquiring the Ge.tt online file sharing service. And we’re currently mapping out new strategies and initiatives to help us use our funding to accelerate our future growth.
More customers and product initiatives
Speaking of growth, we reached a truly amazing 200,000 customers this year! That means that we have not only achieved our mission target of having 100,000 customers signed up to our products by 2013 – we have in fact doubled that figure.
With Debitoor, we have worked a great deal on design and feature improvements, which have paid off in terms of both many more customer signups and great customer satisfaction scores.
On the e-conomic accounting system, this was the year we started the great transition to the new and improved version of e-conomic. This is the most thorough reworking of e-conomic to date, with improved functionality, simplified and modern design and easier workflows in e-conomic – all intended to make life easier for our users.
Another growth area this year has been in the number of people working at e-conomic. We are now more than 160 people, all pulling in the same direction. With the great expansion we’re going through, it’s great to see the team spirit and dedication throughout the company.
