Record year 2021 Platform provider Visable reports 66 million euro turnover (FOTO)

Hamburg (ots) - Visable, the provider of Europe's leading B2B platforms
EUROPAGES and wlw (formerly "Wer liefert was"), reports its most successful year
yet: Overall, the company was able to achieve a profitable record turnover of 66
million euros. This constitutes a growth of 14 per cent compared to the previous
year. "We are very satisfied and pleased with our performance in 2021, despite
the ongoing COVID crisis. In particular, we were once again able to
significantly increase our new customer business with a plus of 15 per cent
compared to 2020 thanks to the continuous improvement of our platforms," says
Visable CEO Peter F. Schmid.

Search queries on EUROPAGES and wlw: Increasingly international

Most visitors to the EUROPAGES B2B platform in 2021 came from France, Italy,
Germany, Turkey and the United Kingdom. "The demand on our platforms is becoming
increasingly international and is no longer limited to Europe. On wlw we
recorded accesses from 180 countries, on EUROPAGES from over 200 countries.
Especially the traffic from Asia is growing disproportionately on both
platforms," explains Peter F. Schmid. As in previous years, the search queries
on EUROPAGES came from all over the world in 2021 - including twelve from
Western Sahara, eight from Vatican City and three from the American Virgin
Islands.

Most of the search queries sent and received on wlw (formerly "Wer liefert was")
came from Germany again, followed by Austria and Switzerland. Poland and China
follow in fourth and fifth place. The five most frequently searched for product
categories included mechanical engineering, respirators, foods, medical
technologies, logistics and metal construction. The strongest increases in
search queries were for industrial computers, power transmission elements,
design systems, ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymers (EVOH) and engine monitoring
systems.

Growing workforce

In 2021, Visable received around 4,200 applications, which led to almost 100 new
hires across the company's Hamburg, Paris, Berlin and Munster locations. In
total, the platform provider currently employs close to 500 people.

Expanding portfolio

In 2021, Visable reacted to the growing needs of its users and expanded its
existing mobile portfolio to include the Supplier App. Among other things, it
allows for effortless management of the company profile as well as incoming
enquiries. Its counterpart, the wlw app for purchasers, was launched at the end
of 2020. Since then, it has been downloaded more than 40,000 times, with
currently over 300 active users per day. The integration of the new Message
Center on EUROPAGES to centralise communication between purchasers and suppliers
and the inclusion of financial data in the company profiles on wlw mark further
milestones in Visable's product development.

"In 2022 we are planning, among other things, to roll out our Connect sourcing
service on EUROPAGES as well," says the Visable CEO. Already implemented on wlw
in 2020, this free service allows purchasers to issue a detailed request, based
on which Visable experts search for and contact relevant suppliers. In this way,
companies can significantly shorten their purchasing process.
