The company is focusing on growth on promising markets, particularly the US, and expanding the range of services offered.​

Choice of expansion destination

According to market analysis, the United States dominates the global IT consulting market with a revenue share of more than 31% in 2020. What's more, forecasts indicate that the market will continue to grow at a steady pace through 2028, with a high influx of investment earmarked for R&D in the area of new technologies evident in the region. Market analysts expect the increased focus on the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data technologies to boost demand for IT and software solutions. In addition, the acceleration of digital transformation is leading to increased demand for software consulting and innovation development.

Choice of expansion destination

Germany is one of European countries which are actively implementing an environmentally-friendly transport policy. What can be observed as a result is a strong focus on rail and intermodal transport, which makes it possible to shift the carriage potential to more environmentally-friendly means of transport. Moreover, Germany is one of the biggest commercial partners of Poland. About 8 million trucks travel between our countries. Laude Smart Intermodal sees the above conditions as an opportunity to develop its business activities.

Benefits of expansion

With its investment in Pilot 44, Netguru is able to offer a comprehensive range of strategic consulting services, including the implementation of innovation and digital infrastructure, to clients around the world.
