SoftServe, Inc., a provider of software consulting, development, testing and lifecycle services to IT decision-makers, today announced that it has strategically expanded its global operations to provide unmatched development service and support to companies across the world. With the growth of its North American headquarters in Ft. Myers, Fla., and the establishment of a new quality control office in Manila, Philippines, SoftServe now stands to provide its software development lifecycle services, delivered via its Abiliton™ methodology, to independent software vendors (ISVs) and enterprises in key global markets.
For many software development organizations with research and development operations offshore, maintaining a significant presence in key global locations becomes a critical differentiator in the increasingly competitive worldwide marketplace. No matter how technically advanced or highly qualified their development teams may be, companies need to offer ISVs and enterprises the kind of round-the-clock service, support and quality control they demand.
“The worldwide services market is increasingly requiring companies that specialize in offshore software development and outsourcing to expand their global footprint and operate in multiple regions,” said David Tapper, vice president, outsourcing and offshore resources market research, IDC. “This trend will only continue due to economic factors involving lowering costs, need for skilled resources and support for local requirements”
The expansion of SoftServe’s Ft. Myers headquarters further grows the company’s United States presence, which also includes its previously established locations in Newport Beach, Calif., and Boston. The newly opened quality control center in The Philippines, in addition to its multiple offshore development resources in Ukraine, gives the company the ability to execute a complete development cycle in which quality control is performed, defects are corrected and quality software is delivered to clients – all within a single 24-hour period. Organizations are able to better leverage the company’s Abiliton methodology, a completely unique approach to software development that emphasizes the right combination of People, Process, Tools and Communication for each and every project.
“The outsourced software development market has become a globally diverse and expanding business landscape, more so than many other industries,” said Taras Kytsmey, president, SoftServe. “SoftServe has long held that we need to grow our worldwide presence to be wherever our clients need us to be. We have every intention of continuing to expand our business to meet our valued customers’ ongoing software development needs.”
