FacilisLtd. – The Company
Facilis Ltd was founded in February 2008 as a Finnish privately owned company. The ’seed’ to the company was sown in the spring of 2003 in Bucharest when another founder of a company was looking for an outsourcing partner. There were many reasons to choose Romania, mainly the favorable price level and no time difference, along with a genuine enthusiasm for getting the job done.
The selected partner was chosen out of five candidates that would have all been suitable partners in terms of quality and work principles. The cooperation started instantly and only one week later two developers were sitting in Helsinki studying the first system. The two men team grew quickly into expert groups consisting of more than ten people. The outcome exceeded the clients’ expectations both in terms of quality and, most importantly, economically. The first steps in near-shore outsourcing have been successful.
In Romania and Ukraine the first generation has shown that one’s diligence may really bring prosperity. As a consequence, several IT developers founded their own companies, and these efforts had brought about a network of several companies and contacts
This network and the efficiency of the personally tried and implemented operating model, as well as the development value, were the starting point to offering advantageous, but high-quality expert IT services for Finnish companies. When the other founding partner, an IT professional with substantial background in sales, stepped into the picture it was the right time to get Facilis Ltd started.
Offer the availability of top-level IT experts at an inexpensive price level. This became possible when buying the services required from production partners in Europe.
