Know-how to do it: Varvel renewed its corporate image without compromising brand recognition.
Varvel obtained the “Historic brand of national interest” award, a certification promoted by the Italian government and managed by the Patents and Trademarks Office, which rewards national trademarks with at least 50 years of history behind them.
Accelerated the digitization process: the IT service was reorganized. It is now split into two mutually specular rooms, located in two different buildings to protect from malfunctions or blackouts. Two fiber-optic lines offer ultra-fast 2 Gigabit/s connection together with an artificial intelligence module capable of detecting the most recent generation of cyber threats.
