“In the first nine months of 2022 Reply achieved extremely positive results, both in terms of turnover and margins,” said Reply Chairman Mario Rizzante after the Board of Directors. “More specifically, since the beginning of the year, in addition to robust organic growth, we have expanded our international presence, focusing on the US, French and German markets. The results of the third quarter allows us to look forward to the months ahead with confidence.”
“Reply’s strength lies in its ability to interpret digital innovation making it functional to the transformation needs of companies” continues Mario Rizzante. The first nine months of 2022 have seen important developments in our main offering lines: Cloud, IoT and connected devices, data platforms and digital experience. In the same months, we have witnessed an exponential growth in demand for new applications related to the use of artificial intelligence, an area to which Reply has long been committed and where it has a leading position.
“In a short time,” concludes Mario Rizzante, “we will be living in a combination of automation, artificial intelligence, digital interfaces and connected objects, but it will take a huge amount of work to make that possible. This is where we intend to position ourselves as niche players, with extremely high technological profile.”
