At this point, there could be a similar text as last year. Our lives are still marked by Corona with all its consequences and challenges - both in our private and professional lives. But there have also been bright spots that are worth looking back on, perhaps especially now.
In the fight against the pandemic, we as a company did what we do best: react quickly to new circumstances, create solutions and apply our know-how where it is needed. This is how we developed our QuickTEST rapid testing software, equipping over 500 test centers across Germany. Millions of test results could thus be transmitted digitally and sent securely to the persons concerned . With great dedication, our team has mastered many a challenge and also implemented special customer requirements.
We have not been idle away from Corona either. Our Order Entry has been in use at many of our customers since this year and ensures fully digitalized processes. We are also pleased to announce the launch of our cytology software QuickLIS, which facilitates all work steps in the cytology laboratory - from order entry to quality management. In addition, there are several web-based developments and innovations that should make our customers' daily work a little easier in these stressful times.
And as in previous years, our team has grown a bit again. Thus, since this year six new employees enrich our company and do a great job here.
We know that we work in an industry that has its hands full, especially now, and is therefore doing well economically. And because we have never taken this for granted, our donation this year is a little larger than before. With our Advent campaign, we have donated €100,000.00 to organizations from various sectors and we are very pleased to be able to give away some of our success in this way.
We look to the coming year with hope and are excited to see what it will bring. Because even if the pandemic will accompany us for a longer time, it is always worthwhile to remain optimistic and continue to give your best.
