Auriga, an elite software R&D services house serving US and EU customers, expands its presence in Western Europe. In January 2010 Auriga launched a new engineering center in Vilnius, Lithuania and partnered with a new German-based representative, GoodmanHaller headquartered in Munich, to better serve European customers, especially in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Earlier this January, Auriga took part in an outsourcing seminar in Helsinki, Finland, organized in cooperation with Prisma Consulting Oy, outlining for the audience the possibilities to cut costs using the right combination of frameworks and services. All these events occurred over a single month and reconfirm the importance of Western European market for Auriga upgrowth strategy. Currently serving few customers in Germany and UK, Auriga targets to double and triple the share of EU clients in its revenue over the following years.
Opening the engineering center in Lithuania completely eliminates the gap between engineering teams on the customer and provider side, as now, if urgent onsite work is needed, Auriga engineers can visit the customer's office in 24 hours without wasting time on visa formalities. And, having a local representative based in Germany, greatly simplifies communications and allows our German-speaking customers to express their opinion on important engagement matters in native language.
"Though historically more active in the U.S., we’ve always highly valued our customers from Europe. They were few in number, but included such diamonds as IBM/Germany or Draeger Medical. Working with them was always a pleasure for both sides as we share the common engineering mindset and passion for technical excellence. We'd like to extend this successful experience on other European companies. Russia, being a nearshore and culturally-well-aligned option, is a good destination for software R&D outsourcing from Western and Northern Europe. And with the new strategically placed engineering and representative offices, Auriga removes the last borders between it and the clients and offers a very attractive solution," – says Andrei Pronin, General Manager of Auriga.
“Working in-team with Auriga is a fabulous experience - a rare mixture of top qualified staff at high numbers, paired with a solid history of experience in delivering what they actually offer today. A major plus in working with Auriga has been the entrepreneurial culture in service delivery which has its origins in the extra service-demanding US-client-base - our clients within the D/A/CH-region value this highly”,,– comments Robert Haller, Managing Director of GoodmanHaller.
