Since its founding over a decade ago, Synergy has had a subsidiary branch in Yerevan, Armenia, specializing in research and development, quality assurance, and technical support. With our impressive growth over the last decade, our Yerevan office has experienced an equally impressive growth in size, from 10 employees in 1998 to over 80 in 2008. To accommodate this new and promising reality, we have been working over the last three years on a monumental, company-defining project: building an eight-floor, two-building complex in downtown Yerevan. On 31 December 2008, this much anticipated project became a reality, as our excited employees hauled in their desktops and flower pots into the building and began to settle down into their new offices.
In addition to being our new home in Yerevan, this state-of-the-art complex will serve as the regional hub of our activities/projects in Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. Strategically located between the East and the West, our Yerevan subsidiary office allows our program managers, software specialists, trainers, and consultants to travel more easily and thus to work in-person with our clients. Moreover, we envision our new complex becoming a global learning center that will bring together our broad base of clients and partners for technical trainings, topic-specific seminars, and conferences on the burning issues at the intersection of information technology and international development. “This new complex,” explains President & CEO Ashot Hovanesian, “will play a key role in revolutionizing the way international development is done.”
