TenderHut – the capital group from Bialystok, is not slowing down as it enters the French technological market. The company is opening its 8th foreign department in Paris. The department will be responsible for supporting current customers as well as acquiring new business partners.
TenderHut faces new challenges
The largest French client of TenderHut is currently the French division of Thermo Fisher Scientific. We have implemented our newest product there – the Zonifero mobile app, which is a mobile office guide. Besides this, we cooperate in implementing LIMS class systems – software dedicated to supporting laboratories. We are full of enthusiasm for exploring another European market and we are certain, that we will satisfy its technological needs – says Robert Strzelecki, CEO of TenderHut.
France examined earlier
The need for opening an official business representation in France emerged from the growing number of clients from that market. Remote management of foreign projects is possible. At one point, however, we decided to establish our office there, in order to improve our service quality – explains Strzelecki. TenderHut has several achievements on the French market so far, like creating a website for Cooptalis, an international company from the mobility sector. The project was implemented based on the CMS Umbraco solution. Another project, was the implementation of web frontend for the new version of the platform by Nomination. It was a large challenge, because the Nomination contact platform is the largest tool of this kind in France and is very popular among professionals from various industries. It is an alternative to the LinkedIn network – mentions Robert Strzelecki
The greatest French challenge
However, the greatest challenge for Tenderhut specialists, when it comes to project scale in France, was participating in creating two platforms for iAlbatros France SAS. The company from Bialystok helped to create the iAlbatros system, a platform which offers business clients the service of managing hotel reservations. The second task was to support the creation of MAYA – a tool which allows the user to organize business trips. MAYA offers a new solution in organizing business trips, allowing for simple reservation procedures, as well as more complicated multiphase trips for numerous participants from different parts of the world, by car, plane or train to more than 300 thousand hotels from the iAlbatros database. Our specialists are still involved in those two projects and are working on their continuous development – says Robert Strzelecki.
A local business representative guarantees success abroad
Just like in previously established foreign departments (in Denmark, Ireland, England, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany and the USA), TenderHut decided to designate a main representative from the country. This model worked well in the previous foreign offices, so there was no reason to change it. A fresh perspective from our top specialists, combined with knowledge regarding the market, is an ideal business combination – says Strzelecki. Rene Koelblen – a man who dedicated his entire business career to IT and programming, was chosen. The expert also knows the Polish environment. For over 19 years, he has worked for the Atos Poland group, currently as a manager of IT projects. – I have been observing TenderHut for some time, and I’m impressed by their growth rate. I accepted their proposal of becoming their French representative with pleasure. Combining our capabilities will surely bring tremendous results – says Rene Koelblen.
The TenderHut capital group is developing dynamically. Last year, it accumulated a consolidated revenue of PLN 16.1 million, constantly investing in organic business growth. Besides foreign departments, the company is consolidating the IT service market in specific Polish cities. Recently, it opened a development centre in Olsztyn, as well as in Szczecin, where it took over a local IT company.
