2020 Recap: Celebrating an Eventful Year

2020 is a year that will globally be viewed as highly eventful – and for many, incredibly challenging, too. We are immensely proud of the Alyne Team's hard work, consistent output and our organisational growth this year. Read on for a recap of our activities in 2020.

2020 has been a great year for Alyne. As a team, we have all invested a tremendous amount of effort and hard work in improving our product offering, increasing our brand value, and generating further movement in the market.

Alyne’s Content Library team has been diligently mapping key regulations to further guide organisations and business leaders. A vast selection of new features and product improvements have been made available to Alyne Customers from our talented Development team, helping to significantly improve user experience and further the capabilities of using Alyne for your compliance and risk management requirements.

The Marketing team worked hard this year to deliver key resources and drive topics and conversations to assist with today’s shifting risk landscape, which supported the activities of every sales member. Each of them, leveraging their knowledge and skill to break into new networks and drive valuable conversations in the field. Our Customer Success team grew tremendously and further enhanced their capabilities to provide our customers with the support and guidance they need to succeed.

Another great indicator of growth, despite a year that can globally be viewed as nothing short of challenging, is the increase in headcount that we have achieved this year, with 25 new colleagues joining our team, across our different locations. In September, we also moved our Munich Office to a much bigger space, creating an improved environment for collaboration, creativity and innovation. 

Thank you to each and every one of you, for your hard work and dedication this year.
