2020 was a challenging year in all respects. As a young company, we are proud of what we have accomplished in the last twelve months. 2020 was not just a year of Zoom meetings, Microsoft team calls and unintentionally muted microphones. With a bit of distance, we would like to look back at some exciting numbers and events.
In a year marked by constraints and uncertainty, it became clear to businesses and educational institutions alike that educational content must be available digitally. Through our technology, we were able to help quickly. We integrated Zoom into our learning platform on short notice so that classroom training could take place virtually. We also helped institutions continue their operations without interruption with our Corona emergency package. In many cases, projects were launched and budgets were allocated immediately to make sustainable adjustments to business models. It quickly became apparent how every crisis is always an opportunity for change and innovation. As a result, our work caught attention in national media such as NZZ, SRF Eco, Handelszeitung and Blick.
Valuable experiences from March and April became an integral part of our future way of working. Today, digital educational content must be personalized and easily accessible digitally. With our platform, we are able to create a learning environment on short notice in an agile manner. It is ready for use in no time due to its user-friendly handling. This is at the heart of everything we do and is MaxBrain's ultimate goal, which has also manifested itself in this year’s encouraging business results. A look at the users shows that our technology is already scalable at the push of a button: four times more customers educating and training six times more users via MaxBrain. This means that our technology is increasingly being used by larger institutions and companies. To manage this growth and better address customer needs, we will continue to optimize our internal processes and provide innovative products to better meet customer needs next year.
We doubled our team this year and at the same time improved the quality of our service. More resources will allow us to continue to focus on high quality and innovation in 2021. Feedback like from Chris Kohler, fire protection expert and head of the AFC-Academy, motivates us to operate in a highly customer-centric way.
Before we take our leave for the Christmas break after this intense year, we would like to thank all our customers for the trust they have placed in us. We look forward to further joint and, above all, innovative cooperation in the new year.
Merry Christmas, relaxing holidays and a happy new year!
