South Africa’s software engineering and solutions company Entelect plans to buy a majority stake in Fixx iT, a software engineering and professional services company headquartered in Zeist, Netherlands.
The local company said on Tuesday that along with Entelect New Zealand, this investment into Fixx iT continues the international expansion of the group and opens further opportunities for its customers, people and business by providing sought after skills, international exposure and the opportunity to broaden their service offering.
This deal creates the opportunity to attract more foreign income into South Africa by connecting customers in Europe to the core team.
It also gives Entelect people the opportunity to explore new cultures and experiences by transferring between offices and will give current and prospective customers access to global thinking and talent.
“At Entelect, we believe that our culture of driving results for our customers and hiring the best people is one that can be produced on a global scale,” says Shashi Hansjee, CEO of Entelect.
“With Fixx iT joining the Entelect family, we welcome an amazing group of developers and professionals who share our commitment to delivering the highest quality software engineered solutions and providing an environment for growth for our people.”
Fixx iT’s multi-talented team has experience in delivering solutions using solid development and architectural methodologies on platforms and technologies such as cloud, enterprise, SaaS, and security.
With the addition of Fixx iT to the existing teams in South Africa and New Zealand, Entelect is uniquely positioned in the Sub-Saharan Africa market to provide industry-leading, end-to-end technology services and solutions to customers around the world and opportunities for software professionals, to experience global projects and cultures.
“Our team at Fixx iT is extremely proud of what we’ve achieved since we launched in 2005, and we are excited to see what the future holds with Entelect,” says Fixx iT’s founder, Ronald Kuyper.
“Their values completely align with ours and we look forward to embracing the Entelect mission, working together to serve our customer’s needs, and opening up growth opportunities for all our people across our office locations.”
Globally, there is a growing need for enterprise software engineering services, including custom data solutions and experienced agile development teams, to create solutions that allow companies to serve the needs of their customers and their people.
The competitive landscape for firms to attract and retain the best talent and give their people the greatest opportunities for growth is challenging.
