SoftServe, a global outsourced product and application development company, opened its Center of Excellence at One Congress Plaza, Austin, Texas. This new facility will house a state-of-the-art UI/UX learning center for both customers and business partners staffed with domain and technology experts. The office will also house UI/UX engineers, product and service management and the consulting practice.
"Our new facility aligns with our corporate strategy to best serve our clients, employees and overall business objectives," says Alan Harlan, CEO of SoftServe. "We will offer best-in-class product and application solutions and work with our clients to deliver valuable services that will empower their businesses to reach new heights of success."
"Our decision to invest in Austin was made for a number of reasons; we have a large concentration of clients here such as SolarWinds, Zilliant, Bazaarvoice, HomeAway and RetailMeNot, to name a few. The Austin market has over 2,600 technology companies and for the third year in a row Austin topped Forbes' annual list of America's Fastest Growing Cities,” Harlan added.
The company said, according to the Austin Technology Council, one-third of the city's jobs are tech-related. Big-name companies like Apple, Google, General Motors and Facebook have opened Austin offices and many of the country's brightest minds are migrating to area incubators to hatch their next ideas.
