The client researched the Balkan for opportunities to move its software development team. Consequently, the client looked for local that can provide them with the information needed. In essence, the client needed research and set up an office in Macedonia.
Our initial service was to perform a screening on the IT industry in Macedonia, determine average salaries, tax rates, and needed steps to establish a company. Along with the favorable results, the client decided to proceed with the establishment of the office in Macedonia.
As soft-landing services, we were supporting the communication with important stakeholders, coordination with HR and real estate agencies, logistical services for the arrival of representatives in Macedonia and scheduling meetings. This enabled the client a smooth establishment of their presence in Macedonia.
The client was amazed by the quality output and hired us to be fully involved in the establishment of the legal entity. They also asked us to lead the recruitment process, as well as spending the first few years in operational management. This lasted until the branch office was mature and independent. Within this period, we’ve changed the software development methodology from Waterfall to Agile methodology Scrum. We also set up procedures, systems, and everything else needed for an efficient operation of the company.
In addition to the operational management, we helped in strategic level as well, defining KPI’s, product scope, software development roadmap and acted as Product Owner throughout the software development cycles.
The company is still successfully operating in Macedonia.
