Europe's leading service platform
Czech TV presenter Daniel Stach welcomed the participants to the event with a quotation from Stephen Hawking and called on them to strive for new solutions in everyday life. He started by inviting the Managing Director of Markant AG, Dominik Scheid, to the stage, who gave an overview of innovations at the Markant Group.
«Despite the current circumstances or precisely because of the current market situation, we see great potential and great opportunities for our further business development,» emphasised Dominik Scheid. In this environment, international Group revenue from franchise operations has grown by 9 percent so far in 2023. «We are growing both with strong, long-standing partners and by gaining new partners in retail and industry.» It is becoming increasingly important to boost efficiency and develop productivity. Markant's service portfolio has therefore now also been opened up to other national markets: «We have been delighted to develop one of the largest projects in Markant's history over the past few months: the Markant Business Platform. This will make our network even more diverse and your potential and benefits will grow with it.»
The additions to the service portfolio primarily include: the digital transaction file as a digitalisation service par excellence; the eInvoicing service as an all-round carefree package for e-invoice compliance for customers in the European FMCG and DIY market; the LkSG service to facilitate the implementation of all legal requirements; the rollout of the GDSN data pool thanks to the investment in the data provider Bayard; a set of cybersecurity tools, which is constantly being further developed and is open to Markant's partners.
«We want to establish Markant as the leading B2B service platform in the FMCG & DIY sector. We already have the largest and strongest network in the industry in Europe,» announced Scheid, emphasising once again the enduring brand values of trust, cooperation and progress. «Thank you for taking Markant to the next level with your cooperation!»
