Having invested previously in industry leaders EPAM Systems and GlobalLogic, our firm is focused on backing digital transformation. We couldn't be more excited to continue this commitment by partnering with the Solvd team to support the development of their outstanding software product and client services. We look forward to working together in this new phase of accelerated growth and expansion of Solvd’s delivery footprint.

In each of the last three years, Solvd has doubled sales: we leveraged Zebrunner, our innovative proprietary quality management platform. 

We expect this partnership to strengthen Solvd's product capabilities, bolster our executive bench in North America and broaden international delivery footprint.
