Godel Grows Revenues by 22% In FY2012
Manchester-based ‘nearshorer’ Godel Technologies Europe today announced that revenues grew by 22% year on year in FY2012 and staff by 30% as the company continued to make significant investment into its software development centres of excellence in Minsk and Brest, Belarus to cater to demand.
“It’s been another outstanding year for trading at Godel as we continue our strategy of growth and our plans to invest profits back into the business,” explains Neil Turvin, chief executive, Godel.
“We’ve invested significantly in our two software development centres in Belarus which are helping us manage unprecendented demand for our nearshore software development services from many high profile clients. This demand has also enabled us to double employee numbers in the UK in sales and marketing as well as in recruitment and HR.
“Over 70% of Godel’s business comes via referal – a fact we’re very proud of and one that continues unabaited during the current recession. Clients are able to make cost savings from nearshoring their software development and their return on investment and speed of deployment is enhanced by Godel’s team of quality resources that can respond quickly to client demands.”
Godel clients include; Tesco Telecoms, The Co-operative Group, Mitie Group, Optionis, Morson International, CSL (the sofa specialist), SIG plc, Wax Digital, CACI, iMETA and many more.
Nearshoring is becoming the prefered method for outsourcing in the UK. Belarus provides a similar time zone to the UK, staff who speak fluent English and have a hungry ethos to work with English companies whilst being excellent software developers.
“It’s a win on both sides; our staff in Belarus love working with UK based companies and working on mission-critical software development projects whilst our clients gain skilled resource which works closely as though they were part of the in-house UK team,” concludes Neil Turvin.
