2018 / Growth
Our annual growth in turnover between 2017 and 2018 was 35%. It can be ascribed to several successful projects realized on the Austrian market, which brought us a number of clients in the fields of logistics and media, but mainly to the contract we have successfully concluded with the State Institute for Drug Control (SR), which makes us the sole supplier of the complex eCTD / NeeS medicine registration management software for the Institute. We have increased the size of our team by four new staff members, we offer paid internships and a chance, for students, to work on their Bc. theses and we have launched many software products, such as www.slimedc.com or www.beectd.com.
2017 / Altamira Austria
In 2017 we started to focus on foreign markets and, in particular, on the Austrian market. We have acquired several interesting large clients thanks to which we have not only expanded our Slovak team, but started to build the Austrian. In addition to laying foundations of our Austrian branch, the year 2017 saw the acquisition of one of the publicly most recognized clients of Altamira - Slovak National Theater.
And that’s awesome!
2015 – 2016 / Public era
In late 2015 we started to focus on public procurements, and were able to win many of them. The most important and most interesting is an application which is used by police officers, working on a department focusing on preventing extremism and violence manifestations online. Our application scans websites, defined by the policemen, and in case it found some of the watched keywords, it produces a warning for a responsible person. Moreover, it is a platform for sharing data across police teams inside the entire country, and allows policemen to works more effectively and much faster. The project is funded by the Slovak government + EU funds.
2014 – 2016 / Pharmaceutical era
We established a successful cooperation with a Prague – based company CEEOR, which a as well-known brand between pharmaceutical companies worldwide. CEEOR, which was recently acquired by an American investment giant WPP, and renamed to Kantar Health, is a company, which provides mainly pharmaceutical research. The key product of the company is software for promotion monitoring, which we’ve been developing since 2014. This software consists of a platform for doctors, which they use for inputting data about pharmaceutical representatives' visits, and statistical and analytical software which is being sold to pharmaceutical companies. This software taught us how to maintain big data, and how to work in a truly international environment, since the company operates all across Europe..
2013 – 2015 / Financial services era
We established successful and long-term cooperation with an Austrian brokerage company MBI, for which we developed not only a website, but mainly an internal multi-level-marketing management system for brokers of the company, which are present in 5 countries in central Europe.
2013 – 2014 / J&T a TMR era
Tatry Mountain Resorts (TMR) is one of the biggest Slovak hotel chain companies which owns nine 4* and 5* grand hotels in Slovak mountains High Tatras. TMR is a part of J&T Finance Group, which is the largest Slovak financial investment group. We developed an online booking engine for TMR hotel chain, which was directly connected to hotel management software which runs on PCs of the receptionists.
2012 – 2014 / Travel Business era
We established successful long-term cooperation with agency delivering data from tour-operators all across Europe. We developed websites for large tour-operators in the central Europe like: TUI ReiseCenter (www.tui.sk), ETI (www.eti.at), Ruefa (www.ruefa.sk), Neckermann Reisen / Thomas Cook (www.neckermannreisen.sk). Except for large tour-operators, we developed websites for number of small travel agencies, across the mentioned countries, thanks to white-label solution, which allowed us to deliver travel booking engine websites quickly and effectively..
2009 – 2012 / Slovak technology incubator
Altamira was a part University Technology Incubator of Slovak Technical University (InQb), the project focused on small business support, funded from EU sources. We were accepted into the Incubator thanks to a web application project, which was able to generate templatized websites for small slovak towns and villages. In the meantime, Altamira was building its brand name on CE commercial market, and trying to get new clients by direct acquisition, and by cooperation with larger agencies, as a subcontractor.
2009 / Birth of the company
Altamira was founded during one hot summer, impulsively but with a clear vision. The company has focused on software and web development from it’s beginning. We have never been a "startup", never had external funding, and always worked for "real" clients.
