More positive feedback on Clutch

Perfectial is proud that such a large number of businesses worldwide trust our company with their ideas and technological challenges. Our global clients that range from startups to enterprises provide more and more feedback on tech partnership with Perfectial on Clutch, a reputable US research firm.

“More than everything else in business, we value our relations with each of our business partners and clients, and always strive to establish long-term rapport with them,” Perfectial’s Director of Engineering, Aleksandr Zhukov says. “Clutch, in this respect, is a kind of a litmus test to show whether we are heading in the right direction and it seems we do it right, so far.”

Presence on the main international IT events

The year 2016 was rich in different fascinating IT events. Perfectial took an active part in global technology conferences to strengthen our international presence and share deep software development expertise in a range of business domains.

During Fintech Connect Live,  EntrepreneurCountry Forum, and Business Rocks summit held in the UK, Perfectial’s representatives have broadened business network, shared insights into the domain tech expertise, and learnt about innovative new trends to put to work in our projects. Moreover, this autumn, Perfectial managers have visited Web Summit in Lisbon, one of the grandest events in the technology world that gathered more than over 7,000 CEOs from more than 15,000 companies.

Yaroslav Berezhansky, Business Development Director about Web Summit: “This event is entirely about startups and a bit for the investors.
