Olivier Novasque, SIDETRADE Founder and CEO, states:
In less than eighteen months, Sidetrade has come to a turning point in their history with three acquisitions. We have moved from our position as a European SaaS leader specialized in Financial customer relations, to an Artificial Intelligence provider covering the entire spectrum of customer relations, from generation of sales opportunities to cash flow acceleration.
In the first half of this year, we have already achieved convergence of our teams in every department, finalized a unique Sales & Marketing Artificial Intelligence platform blending three different recently acquired technologies, and successfully launched a new service in all the countries where we operate. Although it is still too early at this stage to draw conclusions, we can say that we are off to an encouraging start with very high growth. These initial results are the concrete outcome of our AIM2020 strategic plan.
AI is becoming an essential– perhaps even vital– asset for top-performing businesses. We have enabled ourselves to move quickly and gain a considerable lead in the market. We have faith in our capacity to achieve around 40% growth with our new AI Sales & Marketing offering in 2018 and 2019.”
