In the first quarter of 2011, the software development company added to its list of exports destinations Ghana, New Guinea, and Sierra Leone. This shows how the outsourcing software services are taking one step ahead over the in-house solutions.
Buenos Aires, April 2011. Hexacta, the Argentinean company specialized in consulting and outsourcing software development services , was hired by the French multinational Bolloré, for the implementation of technological developments for its logistics service network in Africa.
Hexacta works for Bolloré since October 2008 on two specific projects. These software projects have already been exported to 10 different countries, including Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Gabon, Ghana, France, Madagascar, Nigeria, and Tanzania. It is remarkable that in the first quarter of 2011 added another 3 non-traditional countries for Argentinean technology exports . These new markets are Ghana, New Guinea and Sierra Leone. In addition, it will soon begin exporting these software applications to the Central African Republic.
Hexacta invested over 80,000 hours of manpower in a team of average 25 engineers. The technology used for these projects were NET, ASP.NET, SQL Server and reporting services with Agile.
Juan Navarro, founding partner of Hexacta , comment about it: “Due to a successful job references to other French companies, Bolloré contacted us to implement these solutions in its Africa logistics division . These are non-traditional markets with great potential for our services. Hexacta not only exports to major global places like the US and Europe but also to non-traditional locations and this is a major challenge for the company. I think these new markets help us reinforce our leading position in offshore services offer to multiple destinations.”
