After careful considerations of the current, overall, economic business developments world-wide, the DocuWare Group's Executive Board has decided that all long-term expansions will be executed as planned.
"At the current time, the number of anticipated sales worldwide has never been higher. Our sales partners have confirmed that, with very few exceptions, they are not expecting any delays or cancellations of planned business due to general economic conditions," said both Executive Board members, Juergen Biffar and Thomas Schneck.
Based on feedback from our sales partners, we are also optimistic about sales for 2009. In large part this is due to the fact that electronic document management is extremely useful in tough economic times to help save costs and increase sales power. This has been confirmed time and again by the many users of DocuWare. Our qualified sales partners are able to clearly communicate these benefits - which has served them well in other difficult phases. DocuWare's quick implementation and minimal maintenance are additional helpful arguments within the competitive landscape.
The company is well-equipped to navigate even more severe economic turbulence. Thanks to the continuous success of the last several years and a conservative dividend policy, we are highly capitalized. With this stability in mind, we are confident that we will be able to pursue all product developments and marketing measures as planned. It's what our employees, customers and sales partners deserve."
