Reksoft, a leading software development outsourcing provider in Eastern Europe and part of Technoserv Group, today announced the 20 years’ anniversary of cooperation with Ascom AG, Swiss telecommunications group.
Ascom is an international solution provider with focus high-value, customer-specific on-site communications solutions and optimization solutions for mobile networks. The company is headquartered in Switzerland, has subsidiaries in 17 countries and a workforce of some 1,900 employees worldwide. Ascom registered shares (ASCN) are listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange in Zurich (Switzerland).
Reksoft started cooperation with an Ascom subsidiary — Ascom Business Systems AG — in 1992 when Ascom handed over some of company’s application development tasks to Reksoft software development team. At that moment, Ascom Business Systems faced challenges in finding the key IT personnel with adequate skills for bringing the business critical applications on market on time. Although outsourcing was a new challenge for the company, the management made the positive decision about sending its application development work offshore as one of globalization initiatives.
By outsourcing to Reksoft, Ascom had not only the access to the right skills and reduced costs of software development, but also gained the opportunity to focus on its core business — building comprehensive technological know-how in mission-critical communication. Within the course of the project engagement, Reksoft software development team was involved in a number of R&D activities, all contributing to the development of Ascom market-winning solutions such as network performance analysis tool QVoice (now TEMS).
«We are deeply grateful to Ascom for giving us the opportunity to grow with them during all these years. Back in 1992, we were a small team and the setup of the efficient communication was one of the major challenges we succeeded in overcoming. Without the constant Ascom support, we could not proceed to make this outsourcing cooperation long-term and successful,» commented Alexander Egorov, Reksoft Chief Executive Officer.

We have witnessed how our team at Reksoft expanded their expertise in telecommunications software systems over the years and consider them now one of the most knowledgeable providers in outsourced software development for telco providers. We are surely made the right choice of partner 20 years ago,» said Said Mehira, Post Processing Manager, Ascom Network Testing AG.
