The adesso SmartShore model, which was created specifically for near-shore and offshore services, offers software development for IT projects by bringing together highly specialised teams from various national adesso subsidiaries on an agile basis, aligned toward specific challenges. Sophisticated IT projects are supported by international teams made up of IT professionals from Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Spain and India, among others, at the various SmartShore offices operated by the adesso Group as part of its global network.
In the UK, adesso will be working with companies to carry out near-shoring and offshoring software development projects in a bid to counter the striking shortage of IT professionals in that country, offer cost advantages and drive adoption of new and digital technologies as a whole.
