Reaching 7 100 customers 
EcoOnline entered 2021 with a new brand and user experience, many new products, and improved upsell and cross-sell modules. During the year, more customers choose EcoOnline due to the broad platform offering, resulting in 1 187 new customers (where 752 are acquired organically, and 435 through acquisitions).

A robust and solid outlook
In 2021 EcoOnline took a broad leap in its geographic reach through four acquisitions. By acquiring Engage EHS, Pilotech and Chymeia, EcoOnline strengthens its UKI and Nordic position and key new offerings.

In Q4, EcoOnline acquired Munio, a Norwegian company providing EHS eLearning and Learning Management Systems (LMS) with product extension into access and contractor management. Munio has a solid customer portfolio of larger manufacturing and chemical processing companies and is a strategic step for EcoOnline towards further German expansion.
