Seven Red Lines: The innovative provider of business data management and business intelligence solutions
Transferring the experience and lessons of major projects to services and products for small and medium-sized enterprises
The pandemic has hit the Greek economy in a period of growth, with positive fiscal figures, improved levels of confidence and easy access to international markets. The public administration was able to create sufficient fiscal space to support businesses and workers affected by the effects of the health crisis. At the same time, Greece is characterized by a low degree of digital transformation both in public services and in the private sector, the “backbone” of the Greek economy.
In addition, the small size of Greek businesses traps them in a regime of low productivity and introversion and significantly limits their ability to raise liquidity, invest and innovate. Seven Red Lines is a Startup that, although affected by the effects of the pandemic, has managed to cope, evolve and expand.
This is because it has executives with many years of experience, both technical and business, in the implementation of business intelligence solutions as well as in the processing and management of large volumes of information. This experience is reflected in the products and services it provides and are characterized by quality, reliability and speed of delivery.
The Secret of Seven Red Lines Success
The idea for the Seven Red Lines project was “born” in 2017 by Antonis Sideris and Konstantinos Kouinis with the aim of helping companies use their data to improve their organization, productivity and profitability, making the most of the experienced and specialized staff they employ. It provides Business Intelligence, Data Management and Outsourcing services and solutions and is a partner of Microsoft and MicroStrategy.
Key features that make it stand out are the customer-centric approach, modern technologies and extensive experience in the implementation of Business Intelligence systems. In its five years of operation, it has already undertaken data management and Business Intelligence projects for large companies and organizations. It has channeled this experience to its products and in particular to BASC.

BASC is a Business Intelligence monitoring system for commercial enterprises, in which the most common data and indicators monitored by a trading company have been standardised. It is a quick and economical way for a business to start controlling the most important data of its activity.Especially at a time when it is important not to lose control of sales and at the same time to free employees and managers’ time from work of collecting and preparing reports to make decisions.
