SoftServe Inc. Continues on Strong Growth Path Opening Development Centers in Poland

Company focuses on delivery excellence and personal responsive service options

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SoftServe Inc., a leading global software application development and consulting company, today announced the opening of two software development centers in Krakow and Wroclaw, Poland. The centers will augment various software development engagements to support the company's vertical strategy and will be fully functional by year's end. The new development centers are a strategic component of the SoftServe plan to establish a strong Eastern European presence around intelligent, specialized software engineering services. SoftServe provides software development solutions in SaaS/Cloud, mobility and predictive analytics, as well as the full spectrum of consulting and engineering services.

"The value of our 'client first' approach stretches far beyond engineering excellence to helping our clients achieve a competitive advantage," said Alan Harlan, CEO, SoftServe Inc.  "Today's business environment demands speed-to-market with the highest quality and we are responding to our clients' needs by offering more personal and responsive service options.  We continue to open additional development centers to meet requests for increased speed, value and quality, as well as to provide all of our employees with growth and challenging opportunities. We are bullish that the delivery center expansion will fortify the strong growth of the organization in the second half of 2014 and in 2015." 

The company, which was founded in 1993 in Lviv, Ukraine, has experienced double-digit growth during the last five years, and expects similar results this year, despite the country's current political unrest. In March 2014, SoftServe opened a development center in Sofia, Bulgaria. Bulgaria and Poland have similar cultures and market opportunities, along with a world-class engineering pool, bred through an excellent science and math-based university system.  These centers are designed to meet the company's business goals of collaboration, flexibility, fewer cultural barriers, availability of relevant technology, domain expertise, and less time zone disparity.

In spite of the changing conditions in Eastern Ukraine with small areas of political and physical conflict, we are doing everything in the company's control to support our employees and Ukraine.  For SoftServe, the business and personal lives, all freedoms of speech, religious freedoms, all modes of transportation, all modes of communication, the entire infrastructure and all logistics are virtually the same today as prior to the onset of this activity.

Events earlier this year in Ukraine garnered a fair amount of publicity, but the reality of Ukrainian day-to-day lives and business operations did not and still has not changed for SoftServe employees, software engagements or operations. SoftServe has not experienced downtime due to any political issues; however, the company continuously monitors all events to ensure the company's Business Continuity Plan mitigates client risks and creates safe havens for employees as well as maintains business operations.
