Beyond22-25 strategy

Edenred accelerates with a new chapter of growth

Beyond22-25, the Group’s new strategic plan, was unveiled at the Capital Markets Day in October 2022. It lays out Edenred’s roadmap for the next three years based on a clear, overarching vision: to be the everyday platform for people at work.

Beyond22-25 follows on from two strategic plans – Fast Forward (2016-2019) and Next Frontier (2019-2022) – that profoundly transformed all aspects of the Group, resulting in:

Our Beyond strategic plan is designed to take full advantage of our B2B2C digital platform business model.

Today, the Edenred platform connects more than 52 million users and 2 million partner merchants via some 1 million corporate clients. Leveraging favorable megatrends, and in line with the Group’s purpose – “Enrich connections. For good.” – the Beyond22-25 plan is making Edenred the everyday platform for people at work. Today, this state-of-the-art, flexible and scalable digital platform offers the best experience on the market and drive more responsible behavior. It spans three priorities.

Scale the core: more clients and business excellence

We aim to accelerate growth in our core businesses, in markets that are still largely underpenetrated. To achieve this, we will notably implement a segmented go-to-market strategy, leverage our existing client portfolio, and increase user monetization.

Extend Beyond: more services

The aim of this priority is to enrich the service offering for our clients, partner merchants and users beyond the scope of our core business lines, extending:

  1. Beyond Food (employee benefits beyond food)
  2. Beyond Fuel (fleet and mobility solutions beyond fuel)
  3. Beyond Payment (corporate payments beyond accounts payable)

Expand in new businesses: more geographies

Geographic expansion is another important component of our strategy. As part of Beyond, we particularly aim to expand into promising new geographies, such as the United States and Africa.

Initiatives to achieve this could include deploying local solutions in other countries and carrying out bolt-on acquisitions.
