Press release: Bridge conquers growing part of Swedish outsourcing
Zwaag, May 17 2010 – Bridge, specialist with regard to software development and offshore outsourcing, has opened a new auxiliary branch in Linkoping, Sweden. From this location Bridge offers its services with regard to offshore outsourcing projects to IT departments of middle and large organizations. Sweden is one of the leading countries with regard to IT innovation and automation to realize company growth. The Global Information Technology Report 2009-2010 by the World Economic Forum states that compared to the rest of the world Sweden uses IT in the best way to realize durable economic growth in the long run. Bridge subscribes to this view and also signals that the need for fast, economical software development is there.
Bridge has several software development centres in India, Moldova and Ukraine. These centres provide clients with access to a large number of highly educated IT professionals. The specialist in offshore outsourcing develops several software applications such as server and internet based, mobile solutions and critical (precision) applications. John Eriksson, one of Bridge’s experts who was trained in the Indian development centre, is a Swedish citizen and was named Business Development Manager in Sweden. His knowledge of outsourcing and the fast developments and demands of the Swedish market provide Bridge with a chance to respond to the increasing demand of specialized offshore outsourcing by the Swedish companies.
Hugo Messer, fellow founder and director of Bridge: “Sweden is very much like the Netherlands with regard to culture and work ethics. This makes it easy to communicate with the Swedes and attract Swedish projects. However it is always better to be represented locally by someone who speaks the language and can appreciate the client’s wishes. Therefore we transfer the market development with full confidence to John Eriksson. Sweden is a leading country with regard to green and durable IT projects. Just like in the Netherlands however, Sweden is coping with a lack of highly educated software developers, which causes wages and development prices to rise. This is why Swedish companies find it very interesting to outsource technical projects offshore. The Scandinavian market is open to specialized offshore outsourcing providers. Thanks to the new office we will definitely be part of the expected Swedish market growth.”
