Strong guidance for 2022

New clients within several major accounts and the significant ramp-up at certain Top 10 clients point to a very favorable start to the year for Infotel.

The very active Banking, Insurance and Services sectors, both in terms of the digitalization of applications and the development in information systems, offer considerable expansion prospects for the Group.

The launch of an offshore offering as well as partnerships formed with schools to remedy the persistent pressure on recruitment, offer the Group a continuous flow of new talent.

Thanks to these favorable factors and a solid relationship of trust with its major clients, Infotel anticipates a year of growth in 2022.
