A KCS IT opens an office in the city of Porto and is preparing to integrate 30 new consultants into its team. The expansion to the North is part of the consultant's growth strategy, which intends to reach the milestone of 10M € of billing in 2017.
Lisbon, May 22, 2017 - KCS iT opens an office in the city of Porto, in the year in which it celebrates its 9th anniversary. The consultant's expansion to the North includes taking advantage of the consolidation of Porto as a global competence center - boosted by the arrival of new players to the city and a local culture of support and encouragement to innovation and entrepreneurship - and to reinforce its proximity consultancy logic. The space is located in the Domus Trindade Building.
The Porto office of KCS iT starts with a team of 17 consultants, with 30 new consultants expected by the end of the year in the local team of the consultant. The recruitment process is already underway.
For Tiago Farinha, General Director of KCS iT, "KCS iT's path is one of sustained growth, based on trends and needs identified in the market so that, through the technical competence of our consultants and the processes we develop, we provide innovative responses. This is a strategy that has enabled us to achieve increasing results and that allows us to be more ambitious with regard to the proposed goals and scope of action. The billing milestone expected for this year and the increased proximity to our customers in the North of the Country are two dimensions that put this consolidation and growth in evidence ”.
The consultancy's growth perspective for this year, and in which the opening of this office is integrated, involves boosting trends such as the Internet of Things (loT), Cognitive Systems and Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented (RA) and tools in chatbot, innovative technological aspects that gained more relevance in 2016 and that will mark the current and future market.
In addition to investing in national territory and offering differentiating projects as a strategy to assert itself in the market for 2017, the consultant will also enter new markets, with a European positioning aimed at Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
