Sigma Software Expands its Global Presence to Montréal
Montréal, October 8, 2020—Sigma Software, an IT consulting company headquartered in Ukraine, expands its global footprint by opening an office in Montréal, Canada. The company has been working with Canadian customers for a while already, delivering smart software solutions in various business domains including FinTech, Aviation, Telecom, and others.
Sigma Software is one of the biggest Ukrainian IT consultancies and a trusted partner of its customers from Australia to the East Coast of the United States. In 2006 the company joined a major Scandinavian IT corporation, Sigma Group.
Sigma Software has an impressive track record of successful cooperation with startups, software product houses, and enterprises providing the solutions and services that suit them the most. Company’s R&D centers are mastering trending technologies and directions: AR/VR, Blockchain, Machine Learning, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, and others.
Today Sigma Software unites over 1,100 IT engineers in 19 offices across 10 countries. The newly opened office in Montréal will focus on strengthening the existing relations with Canadian companies and further building the partnership network. In addition, the synergy between the company’s New York and Montréal locations, which lie in the same time zone, will bring wider opportunities for further uprush of joint tech projects.
For years, Sigma Software has also contributed to balanced IT ecosystem development in Ukraine and other countries. Valery Krasovsky, CEO at Sigma Software highlights:
“IT is a complex mechanism that includes many parts, each of them being of great importance for the industry’s successful development. Our company credits and supports growth of all the components. Working for a long time with some of the big enterprises in Canada, we also actively cooperate with local startups and venture funds, do our best to enhance Canadian-Ukrainian business relations, and promote joint initiatives. With the opening of the Canadian office, I believe we’ll have even more opportunities to ensure sustainable growth of our IT ecosystems and our two countries’ economies as a whole.”
“We are very inspired by this opportunity to open our new location in Canada. This country being one of the world’s biggest innovation and R&D hubs with strong engineering schools and a wide talent pool, is also home to numerous acknowledged corporations, disruptive startups, and bright minds. It’s always been a pleasure working with Canadian companies. We have long-term relations with some of the most well-known Canadian brands. Therefore, expanding our presence to Canada was only a matter of time. This new step brings us closer to our current and potential customers so we can be there exactly when they need us,” says Olesya Khokhoulia, Deputy CEO at Sigma Software.
“We have chosen Montréal to become our first Canadian location since several of our clients have offices in the city, which is also a big tech hub and one of the industry centers with the greatest potential,” Olesya adds. “We have been impressed with the warm welcome we have received from Montréal International and Investissement Québec, who willingly supported us on our way to unlocking the new borders. The help from such organizations is a serious advantage for any company entering new markets.”
“Sigma Software is one of Ukraine’s largest tech companies and the first Ukrainian project that we have accompanied in Greater Montréal. We are convinced that with their advanced expertise, they will make their mark in the Montréal ecosystem and will inspire other Ukrainian companies to settle here,” said Stéphane Paquet, CEO of Montréal International.
“Our teams are mobilized and working hard to bring foreign investment to Québec,” stated Hubert Bolduc, President of Investissement Québec International. “The arrival of this major IT player from Eastern Europe speaks to the strength of our talent pool and the robustness of our ecosystem.”
