02/22/2018 BS/2 among the Strongest Lithuanian Companies
Penkiu Kontinentu Bankines Technologijos (BS/2) company is in Lithuania‘s strongest companies list, Sektoriu Lyderiai 2017, compiled by Verslo Žinios business daily. According to Verslo Žinios CEO Ugnius Jankauskas, the idea behind Sektoriu Lyderiai is increasing the Lithuanian businesses competitiveness.
The Verslo Žinios analysts evaluated six different statistical indicators (income, profit, changes in the given year, profitability and average salary). "First of all, any good business should be profitable and, as we believe, the salary in such enterprises should be above average. We’ve also evaluated the indicators of profit, turnover and wages; in our opinion, this is a good and trustworthy assessment of a company's performance," Mr. Jankauskas said.
"We are happy with the Verslo Žinios appreciation of our achievements. Our aim is to find individual technological solutions that can help optimize business processes – and allow our customers to focus on their core activities. In 78 world countries, they have already become convinced of our services quality as well as our professionalism," says Tomas Augucevicius, BS/2 deputy general director.
BS/2 received its largest profit in 2017 from maintenance services to financial and retail enterprises in Azerbaijani, Georgian, Kazakh and the Baltic States markets where the company takes a leading position. In 2018, it plans to expand its business in the Americas, as well as Malaysia and Singapore. As of the end of 2017, BS/2 served more than 24,000 unattended devices and POS terminals in eight countries. Apart from the specialized equipment sales and maintenance, the company develops the best-selling .iQ line software for business processes monitoring and management, and provides IT outsourcing.
Starting from 1997, Verslo Žinios makes its Lietuvos Verslo Lyderiai (Lithuanian Business Leaders) report, which includes a list of companies with the largest sales volumes in the past year. Nevertheless, only this indicator does not show the situation completely, as sales do not reflect the sustainability and efficiency, as well as the benefit created by those companies. Besides, not all of them can be compared, since they work in different areas that have their own specifics. So, it was decided to make a leaders’ list in this or that industry.
Only those Lithuanian companies from the Verslo Žinios Top-1000 can be listed in terms of biggest sales, profit for the year; and with over 10 employees, whose salaries exceed the industry average. In the 2017 rating, only 788 out of 1000 largest Lithuanian companies qualified in 10 industries including servicing, food industry, other industries, retail and wholesale trade, transport, construction, technology, energy, and agriculture).
