The fifteenth of this month marks my first one-year anniversary at Datasur. Making use of this moment I wanted to look back at the last twelve months to highlight the progress Datasur has made with all your cohesive efforts. We are almost past the third quarter of 2020 and I am very proud of what we have achieved together thus far and wanted to take this opportunity to briefly share with you some thoughts and key areas of focus as we move forward in our exciting journey.
A NEW IDENTITY FOCUSED ON OUR VALUE PROPOSITION & FINANCIAL PROFITABILITY
Last year we rebranded our identity, corporate profile and value proposition i.e. “Your Trusted ICT Partner”, henceforth restructuring, expanding and optimizing our service/ product portfolio and internal processes. Due to this we have grown two-fold (100%) in the number of customers past year accounting for more than 300 companies in nearly all sectors in Suriname, resulting in a net profit margin growth of 154%.
IN PERSON CUSTOMER-ORIENTED SERVICE MANAGEMENT
Our esteemed customers recognize the differentiated value we bring to them in terms of superior service delivery, innovative ICT solutions and swift responsiveness to their specific needs. They also recognize our contribution to the local ICT industry and the larger society. We will tirelessly continue to build on their trust and demonstrate with clear actions, our strong belief in developing local-high quality-tailormade end products through strategical partnerships while being the most reliable and trusted advisor for their (ICT) operations.
BRIDGING INTERNATIONAL GAPS THROUGH WIDESPREAD PARTNERSHIPS
At Datasur we are committed, convinced and ecstatically enthusiastic to constantly contribute to the sustained and disruptive growth of the ICT business in Suriname together with our customers and partners, with the primary focus on Data center-, Cloud-, ISP- and Consultancy services. In order to embark on and accelerate through this journey, we have been able to place Datasur (i.e. Suriname) on the international
forefront of existential partnerships in the past months with renowned vendors and solution providers such as: Huawei, Cisco, Hewlett Packard, Dell, Google and Microsoft. We recently became partners with three of the biggest international datacenter operators which are: Amazon (AWS), Equinix and AMS-IX. Partnerships with these international corporations enables us to serve our customers, partners and the ICT business community even- and ever more, guaranteeing operational excellence and mutual business benefits.
GUARANTEED BUSINESS CONTINUITY FOR OUR CUSTOMERS
As you already may know, we are ISO 27001 certified and work on continuous progressive improvement of the total Datasur business operations. This ensures the right balance between policy, safety, innovation, risk and service level management. Because of our state-of-the-art Tier 2 data center we will continue to offer all organizations, both local and regional, top privacy, security and reliability of all their company critical data and applications and ultimately digital development. Furthermore, we are working hard to implement by Q4 2020 a Service Operations Center, catering local talent, in order to provide our esteemed customers an impeccable quality of excellent customer experience.
THE REAL PIONEERS: TEAM DATASUR
In addition to statements above in regards the growth of Datasur as a corporation, nothing would have been possible without the extensive cohesive collaboration, incomparable efforts and performance driven results of the Datasur team as a whole. I will keep on saying we should all be proud of our achievements thus far and be confident in who we as a company are, the future is extremely bright and exciting. By working together as one team and by being closer to our customers, we will exceed our goals.
We are more than ever committed, motivated and self-assured to help you and your business grow through exploitation of ICT services. Henceforth, Datasur will actively and consistently contribute to the ICT development of and in Suriname, with distinctive focus on data center-, cloud- and consultancy services.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone a very healthy, blissful and exceptional period in the remainder of 2020 and extend my sincere gratitude for being part of this very inspiring journey.
On behalf of team Datasur.
