Poland-based software consultancy Multishoring.info has launched a UK arm and opened an office in London to drum up more nearshore and offshore development business with UK firms.
Multishoring.info – registered in the UK as Multishoring Ltd – is an initiative started last year by Microsoft integrator Fild.Net. Andrzej Biesiekirski, chief executive officer of Multishoring, said he believes there is a lot of opportunity for the company in the UK.
"British companies have turned out to be among the most interested in outsourcing their IT operations in a nearshoring model," he said.
"This is supposed to help us to get more credibility for our brand among British customers, and also to provide instant on-site support if necessary. We want to become an important IT outsourcing destination option for UK businesses, especially medium-sized and larger organisations, that want to reduce their IT costs in a nearshoring model."
Multishoring boasts a team of IT consultants who specialise in nearshore and offshore IT development that supports Microsoft applications such as SharePoint and SQL, Oracle EBS, Tibco, Webmethods, Salesforce, Google App Engine, EPI Server, inRiver, Jeeves and various mobile offerings.
It offers custom coding, extensions, integration and modernisation as well as support and help desk services, maintenance and support.
Customers include ABB, Skandia, Airbus Military and Opel.
"The company addresses its offer to enterprises from all over Europe that want to reduce the cost of IT projects by having them implemented via lower-cost countries that are also culturally and geographically close," it said in a statement.
"Nearshoring has been becoming more and more popular in EU countries in the last several years."
