The Baltic- and Europe-based finance technology and e-invoice solution provider Fitek Group reports 21.5 million euros in turnover for 2018. The company’s turnover was 13.5 million euros for 2017. Behind the 60% growth in turnover is the growth of the company’s purchase invoice process FitekIN, sales invoice business capacity expansion in the Baltic states, and geographic expansion to the Balkan states.
In 2018, Fitek continued its expansion. In the beginning of the year it acquired a majority share of the Lithuanian concern SIS. In spring, Fitek purchased shares in a Serbian e-invoice and digital printing business, and expanded to the UK in autumn.
Mait Sooaru, Fitek’s Group Manager: “We were able to grow in our existing markets, expand quickly to new, growing markets, invest in new products, and grow our profitability all at the same time.”
Fitek Group clients include 380 Estonian state institutions, private-sector businesses of all sizes, including Tele2 Estonia, Latvenergo and Lattelekom in Latvia, Maxima in Lithuania, and the bookkeeping company Grant Thornton in Europe.
“In 2019 we’ll continue to expand to new countries, and we plan to invest approximately one million euros in current- and new-product development. We expect the fastest growth from our purchase-invoice business, where we plan to double capacity,” says Mait Sooaru.
This spring Fitek will bring an entirely new solution to the marketplace: a self-service invoice management portal created for small-and medium-sized businesses. This new product will make e-invoices available to all who desire them, allowing e-invoices to be easily assembled and sent, including small quantities of invoices at no cost. The solution is connected to all local e-invoice channels and international invoices may also be sent.
Andres Lilleste, Fitek’s Business Director: “With this new product we want to give everyone the possibility to send and receive e-invoices, as well as meet the requirements of state suppliers. We’ll offer this new solution in several European states.”
