On May 14, our team celebrated the 8th birthday of [bvblogic]. We decided to look back and analyze our achievements, evaluate our progress throughout the year.
First, we’re glad that we have become one of the top 10 IT companies in Western Ukraine. This achievement is very pleasing and it gives us great desire to grow and develop, and to occupy the winning places in the international rankings in the near future 🙂
We have paid much attention and efforts to Navizor project, a startup, that was born and is growing up now in the walls of our company. Now it has gained considerable popularity in Ukraine and abroad. Navizor team participated on 15 public IT events both Ukrainian and international, including: IT-Arena Lviv, Pioneers Kyiv, Startup Crash Test, Battle startups, i-Forum, Open Data Hackathon Lviv, where we have won and became the residents of the first non-profit incubator of open and big data “Open data incubator 1991”.
The project is developing rapidly and going to a new level, currently it works in 37 countries. We have recently signed a memorandum of cooperation with Dnepropetrovsk Regional Administration and launched the pilot project “Inventory of Dnepropetrovsk roads”.
[bvblogic] company became the participant of an international initiative “Ukraine High-Tech Initiative” and makes a significant contribution to the development of IT in Ukraine and the region. Last year, our company also became one of the founders of the Ivano-Frankivsk IT Cluster – the NGO that supports the development of IT in Ivano-Frankivsk.
Our aim is to make the IT industry in our region and country successful and strong. We see a lot of talented, creative people and projects here, and we want to help them to grow, to develop, to become successful and to reach the world level.
So we are actively involved in the organization of numerous local and national IT events such as: Startup Crash Test, IT Rally and others. Now [bvblogic] is one of the organizers and sponsors of the largest IT-event of Western Ukraine this summer – conference Startup Camp. Famous and successful Ukrainian startups will share their experience, and we hope that it will help young talents to get inspiration and to gain the courage to put their projects into practice and into real life.
Much attention has been also paid to the quality of our employee’s work, and we are always pleased to make a contribution to improving the level of knowledge of IT professionals in our region. This year [bvblogic] became the representative of the certification center Pearson VUE, which is the world’s leader in computer-based testing for IT professionals around the world. Over the last 5 months more than 50 specialists were certified.
To improve the quality of our work, we have implemented the advanced procedures Continuous Integration, Code Review and automated software testing in the development process.
We care about our employees. Recently [bvblogic] experts developed a Goal Tracking System – a system that will help employees to achieve their goals with the help of their leaders and colleagues.
During this year, together with our customers we have launched several successful projects, and are ready to share them with you in our updated portfolio.
The fact that makes us really happy is that over 80% of our customers recommend us to their friends and return to us for our services, it is a great sign, which shows us that we are moving in the right direction.
The main value of [bvblogic] is people. We believe, that only happy employees who do their work with love, are able to create really great projects. Our team is like a big family, everyone feels like a part of one whole and is happy to give their efforts to one common idea and successful results.
We spend a lot of time together outside of office – we climb the mountains, go cycling, organize various corporate events and continue our good tradition Ecological Code – for each successfully completed project we plant one tree. We strive to make the world cleaner, greener, better!
Let’s do IT together!
