International partner for agencies
By also serving international customers with our DXP platform, we are even further ahead of digital trends than the average Flemish organization. At the same time, we are seeing more and more early adopters in Belgium who believe in digital experiences and are already quite far along in this. Ivago for example, they invest in the sustainability of the future. They have a progressive vision, implement innovative ideas and need a partner that is on the same page. That is why they chose Dropsolid.
We expect DXPs to really break through and also many more agencies will jump on this wagon in 2021. We predict that those who have been working like this for years, will have a step ahead of the rest and will be able to move faster in these digital heydays. Agencies that understand the value of platforms like Dropsolid Experience Cloud are choosing to move forward. The years-long investment of time, budget and effort, by the way, has already been made by us. Smart agencies choose a platform like Dropsolid's, instead of making the years of investment that Dropsolid already made.
Agencies that understand the value of platforms like Dropsolid Experience Cloud make a deliberate choice to move forward with this.
Dropsolid remains true to its long-term vision of organic growth combined with smart investments also in 2021. We already wrote an opinion piece on our vision of the new normal. And we also like to contribute on a technical level. Trending tech topics such as privacy, a data first approach and an open mindset were poured into a vision post, written by our CTO, Nick Veenhof. One of the direct consequences is that we are the only European partner that can offer Longterm Extended Support for Drupal 7. We are of course extremely proud of this.
We’re not only devoted to our visions, Dropsolid also invests a maximum budget for its capabilities in co-developing valuable communities. For example, in 2020 we sponsored Mauticon, Drupaljam and DrupalCon. This sustainable vision goes much further, by the way. Because we hope to use our contributions, sponsorships and innovations to help our customers achieve this as well. For example, we donate annually to Peace Through Prosperity. They ensure that even the most vulnerable groups in society can be active in business.
We want to teach our customers how to fish, rather than bring them a fresh fish every day.
Above all, I am especially pleased that, despite the turbulent times, Dropsolid has remained true to its vision, mission and values. We are still creating value, time and freedom for our customers and employees.
