Otivr expands range of services for Indian IT SMEs


Otivr expanding range of services for Indian IT SME’s to cater to the rising demand in Nordic region.

A few years ago, the level playing field for Indian IT SME’s in the international markets was not so levelled after all. Resources were limited and attaining global visibility was a dream. It is only after the proliferation of advancements in the communication infrastructure that Indian SMEs in the IT sector now have access to international markets through partners and marketplaces.

Otivr, a Swedish technology startup is helping transform the IT outsourcing business by providing a gateway to Europe and Nordics for Indian SMEs as they have a strong foothold in European and Nordics region. Today over 10,000 professionals are offering strategic IT services through Otivr and the company has boosted their supplier base to over 150 high-quality SMEs, offering project solutions and dedicated resources starting from front-end developers, back-end developers, UX/UI designers, 3D artists, AI experts, tech developers with expertise in Java, Python, Microsoft technologies, Salesforce and many more.

Indian SMEs now have the visibility in international markets among which Nordics has been noted as an incumbent region for business growth. With rapid increase in innovation and business, demand for manpower has also increased leading to manpower crunch in Nordics and Europe. This has led to huge outsourcing opportunities to be tapped. A report titled ‘Sweden a key driver of Nordic ICT growth’ published by industry body NASSCOM notes that Sweden is identified as the country with 40 per cent (USD 23 billion in 2016-17) of the total share of the Nordic IT spend. The opportunities to tap with global technology giants being from Sweden is immense for the Indian businesses looking at expansion in the Nordics. India has huge potential to offer high quality resources. Otivr has strong local representation in countries like Sweden and Denmark with its front-end sales offices.

Ricky Dhillon, CEO – Otivr comments on this forecast saying, “The opportunities in specialized needs in the IT space with emerging technologies is tremendous, especially in the Nordic.

Indian SMEs with a forward vision are innovating in growing fields such as AI, Machine Learning, IoT and Business Intelligence. We are closing the gap by opening up business opportunities in front of them to capture, providing access to the lucrative B2B sector with high value clients in international markets.”

He adds, “Co-ordinating with our clients and partners at the ‘front-end’, we are expanding the range of our services, integrating with more suppliers to cater to the rising demand for niche services in the Nordic region. We recently added gaming with Embassy House, one of the largest incubators in Sweden in the space.
