Software quality testing company, SQS, have announced they are to take control of a majority stake in Indian software specialist Thinksoft. Thinksoft is a popular software quality specialist that is very popular among companies in the financial services sector.
There is good news on the job front from the SQS share purchase, as the company currently employs 200 people in Ireland. The company announced an additional 75 jobs are to be created over the next three years following an expansion of its operations in Ireland.
SQS CEO Diederik Vos said “Our majority stake in Thinksoft supports our strategy, particularly when it comes to expanding in the field of managed services at our test centres”.
He also added, “Our acquisition of Thinksoft will now enable us to achieve our goal far more quickly – of generating more than half our turnover from managed services for software testing. By more than doubling our resources in India, we will significantly increase our competitiveness.”
