BTR Services consolidated its two offices in the Crescent in Anderlecht. The Crescent is a state-of-the-art business centre providing us with office space, a shared reception, meeting rooms, a company restaurant, a fitness room and more. At the opening ceremony for the new office mister Guy Van Hengel, minister of Finance, Budget and External Relations in the Brussels Capital Region, talked about the advantages for corporations of being located in Brussels.
As the capital of Belgium, Brussels significantly appeals to university students, providing young, high-potential intellectuals for our business. Secondly, as the centre of Europe and housing the European Commission, the city attracts valuable knowledge workers from all over Europe. BTR Services recently hired senior Java developers and consultants from Spain, Italy and France, bringing a more international spirit to our company.
After mister Van Hengel’s exposé, our digital communications partners showcased their latest solutions. Mister Josep Baijet, VP Sales & Marketing of Zyncro, flew in from Barcelona to talk about Enterprise Social Networks 2.0. In a profoundly digital world, communication tends to veer off to all kinds of channels. Zyncro offers a single-platform communications channel designed to engage employees, customers and partners. Mister Kevin Jordan, Head of Partners and Alliances of MatsSoft, explained the advantages of Low-Code platforms, with which applications are developed and deployed on any device in a just couple of clicks.

Marval, then, explained how its solution for managing services is based on the ITIL standards, Anubex revived old platform code into new supported code and Connective presented its paperless product suite, which serves to accelerate the processing of business transaction documents.
