Yes, it was the pandemic that dominated the news in every nook and cranny of the world. Indeed, the last year could have done without the various impacts (with learnings perhaps being the prime exceptions) from Covid-19 on most of our lives. The fact though is that each of us, with the human spirit, is striving in our own ways to mitigate the uncertainties and the effects, and thereby address the opportunities that lie ahead of us in 2021 and beyond. Despite the odds, our indomitable global To-Increase workforce and partners continued with our mission as well — to solve complex matters for our customers and better tomorrow.
At the end of October, we at To-increase also announced our bold step of looking for a new investor for the business. The aim was to expand our growth strategy and enable further investments in innovation for our customers and partners around the globe. And eventually at the end of December, Gilde Buy Out Partners acquired our great business (pending closing) to grow it to new heights. From a professional and organizational standpoint, while this was easily the most defining, gratifying, and exciting moment for me in 2020, here’s my pick of five other inspiring and stimulating outcomes related to To-Increase as an organization and our business and products/solutions in 2020:
1. To-Increase Launches a New Partner Program
The change towards cloud- and subscription-based licenses require different relationships in our ecosystem. Accordingly, To-Increase reviewed the previous partner program (dated from the early cloud days) alongside with our partners and decided to renew it. Learn what’s in it for the resellers and much more.
2. To-Increase Achieves the 2020/2021 Inner Circle
Membership in this elite group marks To-Increase’s sales achievements and ranks it in the top 1% of Microsoft’s Business Applications global network of partners. This is the thirteenth time in a row that To-Increase has achieved this status — learn what it means for To-Increase, Microsoft, partners, and the customers.
3. To-Increase Launches a New Solution, Data Insights Studio
Data Insights Studio is a comprehensive reporting & analytics solution that enables you to access, visualize, and utilize the data available across your organization to make impactful decisions that drive business. Learn how the solution ensures efficient and agile access to data, and about its various other benefits.
4. To-Increase Launches State-of-the-Art Portal to Empower Rental Companies and Their Customers
The seamlessness, flexibility, transparency, and independence that the portal offers, helps both the rental companies and their customers to streamline and optimize their operations, resources, and processes — leading to a win-win situation. Learn more about the portal and its exciting features and benefits.
5. To-Increase Engineering Change Management (ECM) Solution Integrates with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management
As To-Increase aims to continue to drive product adoption across the manufacturing industry globally, this integration will help manufacturers shorten time to market by streamlined product versioning and change control. Learn more about how this effective integration helps our customers succeed.
As a customer or a partner (whether you have had the experience of working or collaborating directly with our To-Increase professionals in the past or not), I would love to hear from you (through customer ideas and partner ideas) on how we can move the needle together, even further in 2021 and beyond — for a win-win situation.
