Asseco strengthens its presence in Bydgoszcz
Asseco Poland, the largest Polish software producer, is strengthening its presence in Bydgoszcz. The Asseco's team will soon move to a larger office, which will be located in the modern Arkada Business Park complex at 2 Fordońska Street. In addition, the company is planning to employ new IT specialists. By joining Asseco, they will be able to work on the largest projects carried out for the energy and banking sectors, among others. They are implemented on both Polish and foreign markets, including such exotic ones as African markets.
Asseco will occupy as many as three floors with a total area of over 3,000 sqm. The office building, which will house the Bydgoszcz branch of the company, is the first such investment in the city. It offers modern systems of water and energy management and CO2 reduction, as well as two independent power supply sources and a generator. It is also located in a very good transport point, which ensures proximity to the railway station and the airport, as well as public transport. The transfer to the new premises is planned for the first quarter of 2018. The change of location will apply to all employees of the Bydgoszcz branch, including the teams providing services for the energy and banking sectors.
The new office will certainly improve our employees' comfort at work. The building will offer them a medical centre, a bicycle parking lot with a cloakroom, a restaurant and a café. Chillout zones will also be prepared in the space belonging to Asseco. The rooms have been designed in a cabinet type. We are hoping that thanks to these facilities, our employees will work more conveniently. We are currently finishing work on the arrangement and division of space in the new office, said Jacek Tomkiewicz, Director of the Administration Department, Asseco Poland.
Due to the international nature of ongoing projects for the energy sector, we constantly need access to specialists. We are looking primarily for programmers, also those with knowledge of web technologies, designers, analysts, testers and service specialists. The new headquarters will make it easier for us to reach that goal, said Bożena Knitter, Director of Production Department at the Energy and Gas Division, Asseco Poland.
Bydgoszcz is one of the key centers of Asseco. The company has hired over 170 employees in the city. This is where the flagship product for the energy sector, namely Asseco Utility Management Solutions (Asseco AUMS), is created and developed. The Bydgoszcz team is also involved in the work on the largest project ever carried out by a Polish IT company in Africa. It cooperates with the Ethiopian governmental agency - the Information Network Security Agency (INSA). The company has already provided and launched a comprehensive IT system for reading-data management based on the Asseco AUMS solution. It also provides advisory services, including the ones related to the development of ERP-class software, as well as the exchange of information technology knowledge that enables the construction of a modern energy market in Ethiopia.
