After increasing the number of projects, TotalSoft Bulgaria will entirely undertake these tasks. The operations will be supported by localizing the solutions, technical support and Website into Bulgarian, doubled by a series of events dedicated to the target business fields.
The investment is estimated to reach, until the end of this year, about EUR 300 000, and this investment is expected to be returned by the new contracts concluded until the end of 2010.
“In a few years we want that the turnover coming from the projects performed on the external markets to reach from 30%, as the current one is, to at least 50%. Our strategy is focused on opening offices in the countries where we already have solid references and where knowing the business environment is an advantage in winning new projects”, said Liviu Dragan, General Manager, TotalSoft.
