In the first quarter of this year Benefit Systems focused on ensuring the financial liquidity of the Group and expanding its offer. Therefore, a new product called MultiLife was implemented and the Zdrofit Zdrowe Miejsce facility was prepared for opening. In March there were 436,500 people using the MultiSport Programme in Poland.
In the first quarter of this year the Poland Segment generated revenues of PLN 74.6 million which means that they were 75% lower compared to the same period in 2020. The number of active cards was lower by 63% year on year (436,500). Due to the pandemic situation, the MultiSport Programme was suspended in Poland until January 17 this year. In the period of restrictions introduced in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the Group did not record any revenues on foreign markets. The clubs in Bulgaria were operating as usual. Revenues of the Foreign Countries Segment amounted to PLN 14.2 million and the number of cards on open markets was 92,200. During the discussed period one new club was opened in Bulgaria (there are already 9 of them in total), while the number of clubs in other markets remains unchanged: 15 in the Czech Republic and one in Slovakia. Additionally, preparations are underway to enter the Turkish market.
In the Cafeteria Segment, the company invests in the further development of the platform, both in the area of products and technology. In the first quarter of this year the number of users was 504,000 and the turnover was PLN 76.9 million (down by 10% year on year). Revenues amounted to PLN 10.6 million and were higher by 21% compared to the same period in 2020.
– In response to the limitations of our current operations, we accelerated the work on the online offer and new products. We managed to launch the MultiLife Programme which fits the latest market trends and employers' expectations in the field of comprehensive employee support, not only during the pandemic. MultiLife gives employees access to online training, consultations with trainers and nutritionists, personalised diet plans, sessions with a psychologist or mindfulness courses. We are currently expanding the MultiLife offer and the technological infrastructure needed to support the product. We also carry out activities related to the development of the Yes2move platform, e-commerce and Zdrofit Zdrowe Miejsce – adds Bartosz Józefiak.
