2019 in review – on projects, people and products

What a year 2019 was! It brought with it exciting projects and new products against the backdrop of a constantly growing team. Today, we want to look back at some of the most important events and see what promising shadows they could cast into the new year.

PROMOS developers – new customers, products and designs

Consultants, developers, service employees and our Sales team have been working hard together on developing and enhancing useful products. Functionalities were critically examined and adapted to the needs of the customers. We respond to developments on the market with clever solutions, and we set new standards with innovative products.

In 2019, our development team focused, among other things, on creating the new easysquare Professional App, which is precisely tailored to the needs of users – simple navigation, attractive look with a tile design and useful widgets. The Professional App even gained its first customer last year – the municipal housing authority KOE Rostock. And that’s not all: at the beginning of 2020, we even managed to successfully go live to the customer’s complete satisfaction.

PROMOS achieved a very special milestone when it acquired EXAD Software. In the future, the software for consumption billing will allow customers to perform independent invoicing of operating and heating costs. Now that we have warmly welcomed the three-person developer team who work on EXAD and integrated them into the structures at PROMOS, we are focusing on developing a prototype. We are currently working on getting the product ready for the market in the tried-and-tested PROMOS developer style.

Looking forward to the coming year, converting our customers to SAP S/4HANA® is and will remain one of our main tasks. In 2019, we began tapping the full potential of S/4HANA® by making Fiori® usable for our customers in the real estate industry. The first go-live took place at the beginning of 2020.

Focus on project activity – perennial favourites, new trends and outlook

Against the backdrop of a varied range of new developments, in 2019 the day-to-day project business was once again the fire that fuelled our work. Best-practice project procedures and new project methods in software development ensured short project completion times and high customer satisfaction.

Our core business includes the introduction of SAP® as an ERP system. Our new customers benefit from comprehensive processes and the regular updates from our developer team. Our products in building management have attracted particular interested for many years. From maintenance solutions to our craftsmen portal and holistic quality assessment. With 24 projects relating to our easysquare mobile solutions, we can see a clear focus among our customers towards making their workflows more flexible. The high number of easysquare tenant app projects is particularly noteworthy: there were 15 last year! We have modernised the design and developed functions such as competitions, advent calendars, bulletin boards and other highlights. This year, we have already launched five more projects to implement new, useful features, and this is set to increase. In total, we earned revenues of EUR 22.7 million in 2019. The following chart shows the distribution of the main projects.
