We welcome the talented and ambitious people of TeleSoftas to Helmes, thanks to them we are able to grow our digital innovation services in all three Baltic states as well as other European regions.”

It’s the great beginning of a strong collaboration between two powerhouses that will empower future partners to take a path in digital transformation.“ said Algirdas Stonys, founder of TeleSoftas. “As both organizations have a strong focus on employee happiness, we see eye to eye on many things, and I am thrilled to create a partnership with Helmes that will move mountains, I’m sure.“
