Furthering its commitment to being a reliable software development provider for U.S. companies, Fortech launches its first sales and consultancy hub for the U.S. market in Chicago's architectural icon 300 N LaSalle.

About 45% of our portfolio is comprised of US clients. They come from a variety of sectors, including financial, healthcare, eCommerce, ITC and others," – said Călin Văduva, Fortech's CEO. "Setting an office in Chicago today is core to our strategy and reiterates our longstanding commitment to both our existing clients and to prospects in the region, who are considering potential technology partners."

New Office Broadens Business Scope and Offering

Located on the bank of the Chicago River, Fortech's hub is going to be home to a multidisciplinary team of the company's technology architects, consultants or client executives, who rotate on the ground to work with U.S. clients and prospects on all things digital.
"We have learned that any technological intervention involves changes at the client organization. Hence, we employ a consultative approach accompanying the client in their software buying process and through the software development lifecycle.

The new hub becomes part of a delivery network comprised of 700 software engineers, distributed across four offices, located in Romania, Fortech's founding country.

Through the last 15 years, Fortech's team has acquired robust experience at all level of development from fast prototyping to building complex software platforms, system integrations or migrations.

"I'm excited to see Fortech establishing a footprint in Chicago. As an engineering and outsourcing consultant, I have witnessed a significantly stronger technical capability and higher quality delivery with Romanian teams, especially at Fortech. Their devotion to form elite engineering and project management teams has reset the bar on what U.S. businesses can expect in technology outsourcing. The multitude of Fortech's referenceable client successes validates that its capabilities and engagement models resonates with the U.S. clients." said Ron Herman, former client and currently owner at TeamFound.
