Argentine software development company Belatrix Software is reportedly preparing to expand its operations in the Silicon Valley to capitalize on the growing demand for digital transformation services in the United States.
In an interview with Proactiveinvestors.com, an investors’ portal, Alex Robbio, President and Co-founder of the Argentine firm, said he had already ‘expatriated’ some people to San Francisco in order to lay the groundwork for the expansion.
Belatrix’s other offices in the US are in Florida and New York City, but, considering Robbio’s comments, the software developer may now focus on bolstering the capacity of its San Francisco center.
It would move a few of its Latin American staff to the US, in addition to hiring some talent locally.
A strong advocate of agile software development methodology, Belatrix is expecting to make US$35 million in revenue this year, more than 30% of what it earned in 2017.
The United States is the main market for the Argentine company, with more than 90% of its revenue coming from its American clients.
The news about its US expansion comes a year after Belatrix extended its footprints to Colombia with the launch of delivery center in Bogotá.
Robbio says the Colombian office, started with barely 15 employees, has now grown to employ nearly 100 people.
With nearly 700 employees and four nearshore delivery centers, Belatrix counts Disney, Adobe, AOL, PwC, and Shutterfly, among its clients.
In the interview, Robbio said the company would also go public in the future, as new capital can fuel its next level of growth.
