Almost the entire last year, the world fought the coronavirus pandemic what our company took responsibly. Although we worked remotely from our homes for couple of months and our meetings were transferred into the online environment, we were still trying to be close to customers. Read more about how we handled the year 2020.
2o Years on the Scene
The year 2020 was also our 20th year of cooperation with our customers, what we as a company really appreciate.
When we were establishing our company, we could not imagine what it will be like in twenty years. Back then we saw big potential in IT and we wanted to use it to its full capacity. Today we know that we have been successful. We appreciate the trust of our customers. We have been helping many of them long years.
Nevertheless, we are still looking for new opportunities to constantly improve ourselves. High-quality technology is the only way how to reach it. There are people behind every success and I am very grateful that Millennium is made up of experienced professionals with whom we have become friends over the years. Their enthusiasm and desire to constantly move forward help us to maintain a stable position on the market.Miroslav Krempaský, CEO
At the beginning of the last year, we recalled internally our most important milestones. Unfortunately, not a long time after that, we had to start working remotely due to the pandemic. Since we were ready technology-wise, nothing stood in our way. All our systems and tools were located in Cloud, so they were accessible from anywhere.
Meetings with customers were transferred into the online environment as well. All of us had to use to new circumstances and accommodate to the situation. However, the cooperation was smooth due to well-prepared basis for communication via the Microsoft Teams platform.
The year 2020 also meant a turning point for us, since we decided to strengthen our position on the market by appointing members of our top management as heads of individual segments – our bearing pillars.
Microsoft Awards 2019 Success
Microsoft regularly awards the best and most innovative projects of its partners from the Czech and Slovak Republic. In the 21st year of the contest, our solution for Heineken Slovakia got amongst the top projects. We were awarded as “Finalist” in the Category “Retail, FMCG and e-tail” for our solution named Heineken Slovensko continues in digital transformation by implementation of Cloud solutions.
Since Microsoft decided to transfer the awarding ceremony into the online environment, we celebrated our common success together with Heineken Slovensko production team with a symbolic toast via Microsoft Teams.
The Silver Partner of the Global Certification Leader
Last year, we managed to enter into silver partnership with international non-profit organization ISTQB providing certifications for software testers around the world.
In Millennium, we care about personal development of our employees. We are glad that our team of testers took their part in reaching this success. Acquired knowledge will help them in everyday work. The partnership with ISTQB will bring us many advantages in the future.Miroslav Krempaský, CEO
The ISTQB Partners Programme put stress on quality software testing, i.e. on companies aimed to synchronize qualification of their employees with international standards and best practices related to software testing.
The New Projects for Renowned Names
The year 2020 was in the sign of interesting projects for companies which are not newies on the market.
The solution for ČSOB bank belongs to such significant projects. The main aim of the delivered application is to provide all users – from bank branches to a call centre, corporate banking and back office – with a unified modern tool for management of existing and potential clients and related activities. The application which has become the integral part of the bank, gathers all relevant information at one place regardless of the source channel and enables more effective and personalized service for clients from all segments.
We delivered to ČSOB bank an application based on the Microsoft technology which has materialized its digital strategy.
We will provide you with more information about the project for ČSOB bank in the upcoming year.
We Help Improve Processes
We helped also VÚB bank to go through the difficult times associated with by the pandemic. We delivered to the bank a report as a managerial basis for the evaluation of provided loans of support for entrepreneurs in connection with the Coronavirus crisis. Besides, development of the SMECAS application serving for loan products sales management for small and medium-sized corporate clients had been running at the same time.
We also helped Tatra banka with digital transformation of internal applications into the Office 365 environment. Management of the bank decided to stop using Lotus applications and transfer the most applications possible into the online environment with unrestricted access to data, higher development and usage flexibility, and last but not least, higher security of sensitive data.
We delivered an online application which digitalized management of internal processes to one of the major Internet provider in Europe and its associated companies. Implementation of the central solution brought a more detailed overview of performed orders and drawing departmental budgets. At the same time, the management gained a modern tool able to plan other business activities.
This year, we will introduce you a project which we have implemented for the Slovak Environment Agency. You will find out how the delivered solution has made management of EU funds more effective and brought a broader view on implemented projects.
Raising Awareness of the Importance of Digitization
Although we hear the term “digitization” quite often, it´s not always easy to imagine what lies behind it. In 2020, we joined many activities aimed to educate the public and explain what the digital transformation means.
During the interview for Startitup, Miro, our CEO, explained what can be digitized and what benefits it can bring to companies. Based on the real examples from practice, he pointed out how easily can digitization make many company processes more effective.
We plan to continue performing other interesting activities this year as well. You can regularly read about everything important on our website in the “News” section or on social networks.
