Outsourcing wins for Cornwall


Investment in the Cornwall’s data infrastructure appears to be reaping rewards as a series of global brands look to move their software development work into the area.

Headforwards, an outsourced development solutions company based at the Pool Innovation Centre, has already signed NTT Europe, a subsidiary of NTT Communications, the international arm of NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation) and is in negotiations with another two international brands.

NTT is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, ranked 31st in the Fortune global 500 list of 2011.

John Salter, director of operation support systems at NTT Europe said: “We looked at various outsourcing options and locations around the world as well as the UK and found HeadForwards to be a very attractive new alternative.

“We need high quality software developed with the agility to meet our changing business needs and HeadForwards have enabled us to do just that.”
