There are currently actively spread the messages on the Internet as a warning to Ukraine outsourcing customers, calling to freeze the projects with Ukrainian outsourcing companies due to unstable situation in the country or “following the growing possibility of war between Ukraine and Russia”.

There are no disruptions in transportation, telecommunications or logistics in the country. All Ukrainian Softengi development centers operate on a usual basis and plan to continue the work in this mode.
As in any other company, taking care of the customers’ data and projects, Softengi has its business continuity plan, which guarantees the delivery without disruption. So far we had no reason to activate this plan and we are pretty sure that we will not need it in the future. However, we always consider such risks and ready to meet any emergency situation.
