08 May Ellore: Expanding Its Reach
Ellore sales revenue reached €771 thousand, growing by 21% year-over-year, with profit before taxes reaching €82 thousand. Increased sales of terminals, contactless technology deployment in 2016, and an 18% increase of card payment acceptance helped by growth, while Hansab Group’s internal and external projects doubled software development revenues.
In order to improve the quality of management processes, Ellore implemented ITIL principles to manage service delivery and adjust the company’s main business processes according to ISO 9001 and ISO 20000 quality standards.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) and local card organization requirements enabled the company to deliver more than 5,000 card payment terminal software licenses across the Baltic region, focusing on core competencies in functionality and flexibility, as well as seamless integration with financial systems.
The Ellore team participated in integration projects, enabling card payment functionality, with Cinnamon Cinemas, McDonalds, HiParc, Kärcher, and many other notable firms, while our joint project with Cleveron Ltd. was nominated as Card Payment Solution of the Year.
One of Ellore’s most critical projects involved supporting Hansab’s new software developments across the Group. Ellore also delivered customized software solutions, including video delivery systems, to Saarte Liinid and Pet City, and the company brought new payment functionality to Elisa bill-payment kiosks. In addition, we had an important role in helping Lithuania migrate to the Euro, updating the POS terminal network and supporting all Hansab Group operations.
Looking to the Future
We succeeded in certifying card payment applications at the local certification authority in Belarus and began live pilots for attended and unattended terminal solutions, opening up new market opportunities over the next few years. As a Hansab Group company, Ellore supports global growth efforts of corporate customers by developing and providing modern, high quality and value-added solutions.
