Falmouth, Cornwall, UK: Investment in Cornwall’s data infrastructure appears to be reaping returns as global organizations move their software development work into the area.

 

Headforwards, a software development outsourcing company has signed a new deal with NTT Europe, a subsidiary of NTT Communications, the international and long-distance arm of NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation). The deal means that Headforwards — which enjoys year-on-year growth and is also negotiating deals with other global organisations— will continue working as NTT Europe’s software development team on a number of projects.

The contract with NTT Europe has helped Headforwards secure its position as one of Cornwall’s fastest-growing businesses. NTT is one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies, ranked 32nd in the Fortune Global 500 list of 2013.

John Salter, Director of Operation Support Systems, NTT Europe, said: “We looked at various outsourcing options and locations around the world as well as the UK and found Headforwards to be a very attractive new alternative. Being located in the UK they work in the same timezone, language and country as our internal team. We needed high quality software developed with the agility to meet our changing business needs, and Headforwards have enabled us to do just that. They quickly and seamlessly integrated the outsourced team with our existing internal team, and over the last two years we have steadily increased our investment in the partnership. With a track-record of contributing to the delivery of key projects to our stakeholders, Headforwards are undoubtedly the right outsourcing option for NTT Europe."

Investment in Cornwall’s digital infrastructure has helped Headforwards attract the best software development talent in the UK, according to Toby Parkins, Director of Headforwards.

Parkins said: “We have been able to attract some of the very best software developers working in the UK today as a result of our unique location. Not only do we have beaches on our doorstep, but a state-of-the-art office with 100mbps internet speeds.”

.With businesses needing to adapt rapidly to change in the marketplace, the agile approach has provided international clients with an attractive solution for their ongoing technical development.

The company has a clear vision for its future and will undoubtedly continue to attract attention from those interested in the industry. Speaking on their business philosophy, Girvan said: “We have three core values: happy clients, quality developers and great software. This combination is key to our offering. There is an integral link between the three. Achieving balance means a great outcome for all involved, and we wouldn’t accept anything less than that.”
