Buenos Aires, December 2023 – Epidata, a leading innovation and software development outsourcing company with a presence in Latin America and the USA, and Gestión IT, a leading Testing and Quality services company in Argentina, have agreed on an investment and strategic support plan to drive the regional growth of Gestión IT.
With the acquisition agreement, Epidata will add a new area of expertise to its offering, which is Testing and Quality in software with international certification from ISTQB® (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) to scale to new clients and services, seeking to drive the growth of Gestión IT in LATAM and the USA.
To achieve this, Epidata will deploy a comprehensive package of efforts, including direct investments in internal initiatives, assigning executives with experience in developing a robust expansion business plan, and facilitating its extensive network of world-class partners.
Regarding the agreement, Adrián Anacleto, CEO and Founder of Epidata, commented, “… the fundamental premise is to grow through collaboration, to add and leverage synergies, allowing Gestión IT to continue its growth trajectory, providing tools and seizing international opportunities.”
On the other hand, Gestión IT will remain as an Operational Unit with autonomy and independence regarding offerings, professional teams, brand, and client relationships, where the combination of investments, executive talent, and Epidata’s partner network will have a significant and sustainable impact on its business in the region.
Aligned in an integrated plan, Gestión ITt will contribute all its know-how and prestige based on Testing and Quality, especially in the Banking, Insurance, and Fintech sectors. In this regard, Carlos Vicente Marco, Partner and Director at Gestión IT, confirmed, “… we are convinced that all our experience and knowledge; covering all aspects of Testing and Quality in software, ranging from training, functional and non-functional testing to Consultancy for the initiation and improvement of Testing activities, and all possible variants, will be of great value within Epidata’s offering.”
As an added value, Gestión IT is the only company in Argentina certified by ISTQB® (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) with the world’s most widely recognized standard in knowledge and skills for software testers.
The daily operation of both companies will continue as before, regarding current clients and delivery teams, adding new cross-proposals of services and products. This will enable selling more to existing clients, offering them a broader range of options through the same strategic provider.
In this way, they expect to attract new large regional clients, complement service proposals, and generate more business opportunities, fostering the development of their professional teams and opening growth possibilities for Gestión IT employees.
Executives are excited about this new stage, based on the premises of continuity and growth, and they trust that it will benefit the entire ecosystem of clients, employees, and business partners alike.
