The expansion in Germany is due to the need to strengthen existing customer relations and to promote OVES Enterprise services in the German-speaking markets from the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
“Currently, we have 20 clients outside Romania, 10 of them being in Germany. Hence the desire to set up an OVES Enterprise office in Munich.

“We are seeing an exponential increase in global demand for digital products. We believe that the efforts made in previous years, as well as the investments in team growth – last year alone we allocated 1 million euro in resources and team growth, along with the high level of trust from existing customers allowed us to take advantage of this huge global demand of digital services and products and, thus, accelerate our business beyond initial estimates”.

Thus, from 68 members in 2021, the team will reach 130 by the end of 2022. Most OVES Enterprise employees are software developers with over 10 years of experience, very diverse technological expertise and extensive coverage of the industries they previously worked.
