TenderHut, an IT Capital Group, consistently realises their international expansion strategy. That time, they opened an office in the capital city of Great Britain, where a new partner will be selling company's services on the UK market.
– A company's strategy is to increase its activity to the next foreign markets. After Sweden and Denmark, time has come for Great Britain. We want not only to sell our services but also to support customer service on the spot – and that's where an idea of opening new office comes from. We trained our local partner for few months, and we want to optimise our actions and ensure that our clients feel comfortable – says Robert Strzelecki, Vice President of TenderHut Group.
Brexit is an opportunity for Poland
Last year's statistics show that Great Britain lacks about 75 thousands of IT sector employees, programmers in particular. That amount is still growing, and due to planned exit from the European Union, that problem may escalate on an even bigger scale. It is no secret that because of that many of world's giants want to retreat from the United Kingdom. It may be a great development opportunity for Poland.
– Programmers will leave but the needs of British IT companies will still be there, and they will have to be fulfilled. TenderHut wants to be available and to offer its vast range of services at that critical moment – says Eva Krydowska, company's representative on the British market. It was her who has been chosen to be a commander-in-chief in a new company's office in London. That specialist has been successfully working in IT industry for many years, she has outstanding skills in brand-building and maintaining positive relations with a client. Besides, she has been working and living in Great Britain for many years. She knows that market, its needs and capabilities very well.
Robert Strzelecki, Vice President of TenderHut Group, also mentions a different reason to open up for the Great Britain: "We need the office in London because we already have been realising many contracts there, and a local branch will allow us to support customer service in a more efficient way. Together with the takeover of QBurst Poland, we acquired few new clients located in the British Isles, e.g. RX Systems (EMIS Health) company from medical sector".
– It's another example that the Great Britain is a great springboard to global markets. IT companies shouldn't worry about Brexit – it's not possible to impose a duty on zeros and ones; however, there is a whole ecosystem in the Great Britain, which may help polish companies with global aspirations. Let's not forget about the fact that the Great Britain itself is an enormous and wealthy market – it's still the fifth largest economy in the world – comments Michael Dembinski, the primary advisor for British Polish Chamber of Commerce (BPCC).
The Great Britain is another country, after Denmark and Sweden, in which TenderHut has begun to operate. In native country, they also put their money on development. In recent times, they focus mainly on acquiring smaller IT companies, such as LemonTea, QBurst Poland and LIT. As Robert Strzelecki says, the goal of such activity is to acquire experienced managers, who wouldn't be available through traditional forms of recruitment. Thanks to acquiring them, the company gains a new glance on ongoing projects, and it may be getting pretty good in its operation.
TenderHut is still in talks with new companies interested in joining their group. Negotiations with potential investors, who want to support ambitious plans of the company, are also ongoing. And that's why we can expect, that TenderHut will surprise new technology industry by their actions on several occasions.
