Bilot expands Internationally – first customer deliveries started in Poland

SAP and Microsoft Finnish Gold partner Bilot is expanding to the Polish market.

Bilot appoints seasoned SAP-professional Mariusz Papiernik as Managing Director for its Polish subsidiary. Previously Mr Papiernik has been working as a Sales Director at Infovide-Matrix and prior to that in key roles in other leading consulting companies such as Software AG.

First customer deliveries have already been started and Bilot is planning to develop both local presence in the Polish market as well as provide near shore delivery capabilities to existing customers. The Polish market will benefit from Bilot’s expertise as well as its own productized Cloud and SaaS offering in the areas of Commerce, Productivity, Analytics and Performance based on the latest innovations in the SAP and Microsoft ecosystems.

“Bilot’s strategy is to build an international presence, initially in selected markets. While adapting to the industry megatrends, we believe it is the perfect moment to seize the opportunity of geographical expansion. Poland was a clear choice for us and the very first steps have proved to be very promising indeed. While we are naturally excited about this bold new step, we are also very aware of the requirements internationalization sets on us.” – Mika Tanner, CEO Bilot Oy

“Poland is an extremely interesting market for us. It is the strongest of the emerging large economies in Eastern Europe. There is a strong presence of entrepreneurial spirit and a will to succeed. Poland has been a member of the EU for a decade and has shown remarkable progress. As a nation of nearly 40 million and with a promising economic outlook, it is destined to be one of the superpowers of Europe. Bilot’s ambition is to build a strong presence in the local market with the same attractive offering and compelling value proposition we have had in Finland. We expect the maturity of the ICT market to be suitable for us and we know that there is an abundance of expertise in our scope of interest.” – Mikko Koljonen, MD Bilot International Oy

“I am very pleased that the Bilot Group’s management entrusted me the responsibility and honour of managing Bilot in Poland. I am confident that our innovative portfolio addressed to customers is a great example of creating value through synergy of business and IT. Bilot has a lot of good experience in its current offering. It is worth mentioning that Bilot has own R & D – Bilot Labs, which develops solutions, among others available in the Cloud. I think that our extensive experience and expertise backed up by SAP Gold Partner status in Finland will become known to customers in Poland. There is a clear need in Poland for our solution offering which is based on SAP HANA, CRM, BI, and eCommerce e.g. Hybris, and SAP integration with MS SharePoint solutions. Our main goal is to deliver business value through innovative IT solutions and business consulting.” Mariusz Papiernik, MD Bilot Sp. z o.o.
