EAST MOLINE, Ill (KWQC) - An East Moline company has found growth amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

EBE Technologies provides business process management applications for the transportation industry and has reported a record year of growth with an 11 percent increase in revenue from new client acquisitions and a 36 percent increase in additional purchases from existing clients, according to a press release.

“This has been an unparalleled year for upheaval in the transportation industry. Some of our clients in specific industry segments were affected more than others, but the impact was universal,” said Larry Kerr, EBE president in a press release. “Our new client acquisitions were driven in part by carriers that could not utilize their legacy imaging solutions in work-from-home or mobile configurations.”

The company said their technology has helped businesses provide safer, contactless options for their employees.

“We allow our customers to have very minimal contact with their customers. In the past where you’d have to sign a proof of delivery document, we have an electronic version of that so there is no contact needed between any party,” Rocco Marrari, Vice President of Imaging and Workflow Solutions, said.

The company currently has 670 clients around the country and has been based in East Moline for over 47 years.

“Really what we’ve done is allow our customers to have the same type of efficiencies and even more. And be able to do it from home or a remote location. They’re able to do their day to day and not miss a beat actually,” Marrari said. “Currently a lot of those documents are being handed to billers or being emailed and scanned in. So by allowing the driver to capture it and come into workflow, we automate that process.”
