Softline and ICL Services Sign an Agreement for Cooperation on International Markets

LONDON, UK – Softline and ICL Services have signed an agreement with ICL Services for mutually beneficial cooperation in the global hi-tech market. Both partners have unique industry expertise and are ready to join efforts to promote branded IT solutions and services, implement large-scale international projects, expand to new regions, and create a new competitive edge.

Partnership with ICL Services, part of ICL Group, will enable Softline to strengthen its service business. ICL Services has a cohesive team of professionals and extensive international experience providing IT outsourcing services and is ready to share this experience with its partners. The company will complement Softline’s IT service portfolio with offers of its international business unit, including end user services.

In its turn, partnership with Softline, a global digital transformation and cybersecurity solution & service provider, will help ICL Services and the entire group to reach its strategic goals in international and emerging markets.

Softline and ICL Services are not competitors in the global hi-tech market, and our companies are currently working out the cooperation model in Russia. In recent years, the Russian IT market has changed dramatically. Only strong players with global experience and extensive service expertise can become the market leaders.

Sergey Soloviev, Director of ICL Services, commented on the benefits of the global agreement with Softline: “A cooperation agreement with Softline allows our companies to implement joint projects that will ensure our sustainable development on the global market. It is important for us to expand our geography, explore new markets and new regions where we have not worked yet. I am sure that the synergistic effect will enable the success of our cooperation.”

Sergey Chernovolenko, Softline Global CEO, outlined the prospects of cooperation with ICL Services: “Signing a global agreement with ICL Services is a milestone event for our company, and we are very enthusiastic about it. Our partner has extensive experience providing outsourcing services to Russian and international customers. In its turn, Softline continues to expand its presence consistently and grow in foreign markets. I am sure that in-depth industry expertise of ICL Services will help us reach the strategic goals and further strengthen our position in the international hi-tech market.”
