It’s late December. The streets are busy with shoppers, lit up with the season lights and buzzing with happy children anticipating what they know will come soon. It’s the Christmas season, which brings with it all the gifts, traditions, foods, and drinks from around the world – naturally, I recommend a Portuguese red wine or a glass of Porto.

So as the year comes to an end, it’s time to look back and see what 2016 brought us. And oh my, what a year it has been for BeFlexi!

We finalized the setup of our team, bringing together operations, finance, sales and marketing. The team is now ready and quick to respond to all the day to day requests and constant challenges and requirements that come through our door. We have reshaped the management team who, thanks to a strong legacy, is able to execute a fast and effective decision process. And, finally, we moved to a new office in Limassol, which creates a better efficiency of working, whilst also delivering a pleasant (and fancy!) working environment for all of us at BeFlexi.

Our presence and efforts in Cyprus were rewarded with the Cyprus International Business Association’s Startup Award, which we received in early December from H.E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades.

2016 was also the year in which we effectively started operations in not one or two, but six countries, doubling our global presence. We have grown our customer database by more than 100% while keeping the high standard of service and the 0% of leakages. Together with our global partner, SGS, we reached and served more customers, carrying more products out of more locations.

We have also started strategic partnerships with a few selected companies around the world. To know more about this, you will need to keep following us in 2017. Stay tuned in early January…

But overall, yes, what year it has been for BeFlexi. And all this would not have been possible without the contribution of our fantastic team, the continuous support of our partner SGS around the world and of you, our customer. So, on behalf of BeFlexi, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a fantastic start to the New Year!
