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:
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.
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.
