Hilversum, November 2012
ISDC reaches a new business development stage towards a European leading market position for premium nearshore services based on cutting-edge business solutions. This translates into extension of its front-end operations with a new German office and consolidation of its development force with a fast growing Bulgarian nearshore IT Services and Solutions Centre.
Eddy Vermeire, CEO: “Extending our company in sales (Germany) and delivery (Sofia) means the first explicit steps after Synergia joined our company in realizing our strategy. We are committed to becoming a leader with premium nearshore services combined with our 3i’s, namely solutions for innovating the front-office, intelligence, and integration. Our new business units will actually strengthen our capability to deliver seamless projects and services to our customers. We will continue to be a professional partner for our customers and maintain a sustainable and vibrant relation with them.”
Starting this autumn, ISDC has successfully entered the German market by addressing the special nearshore needs of German customers in two strategic market segments – healthcare and finance. With a Smartshoring market approach, ISDC has already delivered highly customized healthcare portals for large German enterprises. The specific goal is to expand the ISDC footprint into Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Andreas Zagar, Managing Director ISDC Gmbh: “Our Smartshoring value proposition gives a German flavour to the way ISDC does nearshore. The lack of qualified IT’ers in Germany combined with a stable and healthy market represent enormous opportunities for us. We will continue to do the software development in Romania while contract and management aspects will be managed by our German specialists. Currently, we are hiring people for our sales team and ramping up the company, also with the help of our German partner – Telegance Group. My personal ambition is to gain value for our customers by delivering a premium nearshore experience. Thus, we can make ISDC Gmbh a reputable player on the market and guarantee an organic growth and customer-centricity.”
In parallel, combining forces with Evolvity gives a competitive edge to the ISDC solutions offering. Evolvity is a fast growing IT Services and Solutions Centre, with subsidiaries in Utrecht (The Netherlands) and Sofia (Bulgaria). The current team of 45 IT and business specialists work on IT and business concepts and solutions of tomorrow on behalf of a thriving group of international companies active in the financial services industry and logistics. Combining forces with ISDC will directly lead to improved scaling capabilities and extended major European presence. The complementarity on business and technical level will be beneficial to customers in terms of faster delivery, more and better services and solutions. Ronald Verbrugge, CEO Evolvity, will enter the ISDC Board in the role of Chief Business Development. Ronald Verbrugge: “I expect that our joint forces will not only make ISDC an IT leading specialist, but more importantly will empower the business of our customers in selected areas – finance and healthcare. We want to grow in the coming two years so as to operate from several European IT services centres and continuously optimize the business value of our customers by challenging them on a strategic and operational level. ISDC and Evolvity together will enable customers to align their business to changing market circumstances, in time, anticipating on technically (Big Data, Mobile, Cloud Computing), economically, and socially changing demands. I am convinced that our expertise, drive and motivation will make the difference to our customers!”
By taking such major steps, ISDC will continue to consolidate its position as a leading European player in the area of IT services and solutions under a nearshore model. With a current team of 300 talented people and a constant 25% yearly growth, ISDC has the determination to create even more substantial value for customers and their end-users through intelligent and innovative solutions.
