Multishoring.info, the largest organization of IT consultants who specialize in nearshore and offshore IT development in Poland, has registered its company in UK under the name of Multishoring Ltd. and opened its office in London. This is to get more credibility for the brand among British companies willing to outsource their IT operations in a nearshoring model.
Multishoring.info has been operating on the market since the end of 2011. The company addresses its offer to enterprises from all over Europe, which want to reduce the cost of IT projects by having them implemented at the lower-cost countries, but also culturally and geographically close. This form of implementation of IT projects – called nearshoring – has been becoming more and more popular in EU countries for several years.

For this reason, we have decided to register our business in UK and open our office in London. It 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 organizations, that want to reduce their IT costs in a nearshoring model” – says Andrzej Biesiekirski, CEO of Multishoring Ltd. and founder of Multishoring.info.

According to Everest Group’s “Global Location Insights: October 2011 – Perspectives on Global Services Market in Poland” report, Poland has all the characteristics of an ideal place for offshoring projects, including in particular those based on knowledge, such as IT projects. It is due to a blend of critical factors including cultural and geographical proximity to Western Europe, high quality labor pool with a high level of education, and foreign language capabilities. Poland currently accounts for almost one-fourth of the global services market in CEE and is witnessing double-digit growth. For this reason Everest Group has moved Poland in 2011 into the elite group of five most mature outsourcing countries for investment in the world, among Brazil, China, Philippines and India.
