CNA Imola visita Cablotech

We had the pleasure of receiving the first official visit of Mr. Luca Palladino, President of CNA Imola Metropolitan Association, elected on June 29, together with the CNA General Secretary Mr. Sergio Silvestrini and the director Mrs. Ornella Bova.

During the meeting we presented the story of CABLOTECH: from its birth in the family garage to its current reality of 3200 square meters and 50 employees, which has been reached thanks to the continuous desire to improve and always achieve new growth goals.

We illustrated how CABLOTECH is facing the current pandemic situation, which forced us to slow down in production with a few months of layoffs. Now we fortunately overcame thanks to a recovery due to numerous requests from new customers who have brought back to a satisfactory production level.

During the visit to the production plant we presented the new layout and the new investments in machinery and equipment thanks to which it was possible to optimize productivity.

The improvements made also aim to keep the focus on safety for employees and on the importance of making the work environment more comfortable.

We would like to thank Imola CNA delegation for the visit and for the interest shown.

We are confident that we can continue the satisfactory collaboration with the aim of constant growth as a local company.

Margo Piattaforma Cribis

At Cablotech we are driven by the desire to improve ourselves, take new paths and consolidate the foundations of our business.

After having formalized the association with ITKAM – Italian-German Chamber of Commerce for the development of the cross-border market and shared the recognition of “Prime Company” obtained by CRIBIS for the third consecutive year, we decided to experiment an innovative way to strengthen our presence in the Italian market.

For this reason, some weeks ago, Cablotech has implemented the use of “Margò” platform in our commercial and marketing procedures.

It consists in a marketing intelligence platform created by CRIBIS, a company of the CRIF group, specialized in the supply of economic and commercial information, services for the development of web based business and data integration and lead management solutions.

CRIBIS guarantees the highest quality standards thanks to its membership in the Dun & Bradstreet Worldwide Network.

The use of Margo Platform offers countless advantages: first of all, it provides useful tools to increase turnover and sales through the analysis and targeting of over 6 million Italian companies; it allows to create lists of prospects with the desired characteristics or among the most similar to current customers through a search method based on the use of more than 300 filters; it also allows to identify the best companies to contact by analyzing the markets and studying its potential growth.
Margò platform uses a semantic search engine that allows to monitor both customers and historical suppliers and at the same time facilitates the search of new ones.

Through the analysis of market maps, it allows to deepen the characteristics and trends of the reference sectors, as well as it allows to create commercial campaigns and to monitor the performances.
The Margò platform also offers us the valuable opportunity to verify our own positioning on the Italian market, analyzing our penetration rate and our growth potential.

In an extremely difficult economic moment in which the market is increasingly complex and with increasingly narrow margins, a change of perspective is required: the customer cannot be the simple object of the transaction, but it is necessary that he becomes the subject with whom to build relationships of mutual value.

Her adventure in the world of new technologies began with a job in the Electronics Division of Olivetti. She is immediately a well-respected manager at national and international level for his decision-making, ability and skills.

In 1979 she was appointed as Chairman of Olivetti Corporation of America.  In 1981 she returned to Italy to take the reins of Italtel. In those years, Italtel was passing through a phase of acute recession: it was a colossal company housing over 30,000 employees and 30 electromechanical companies which were either obsolete and facing serious loss. As CEO, Marisa was obliged to make courageous difficult and farsighted choices.  Marisa succeeded in the miracle of transforming a conglomerate of diverse and numerous plants into a modern, dynamic and innovative electronic company. It was a clear cut managerial success story which was written into the manuals of economics as an example of restructuring a public company.  Her capabilities and accomplishments garnered the award for manager of the year in 1986. Hers is the first woman career, in our country, in the world of telecommunications and information technology.
