The growing post-pandemic trend in remote working, a critical shortage of tech talent and an increase in demand for managing data more efficiently present a great opportunity for Bluechip to bring its more than decade-long expertise to the wider EU market.
The expansion will be led by Richard Lewis who believes that Bluechip Technologies, as one of the leading data warehousing companies globally, is well placed to offer immense value to businesses in Europe.
Bluechip successfully partnered with international companies like Oracle and Microsoft. Also, the enterprise tech company has worked with large African companies, such as telcos MTN and 9mobile, and banks like Guaranty Trust Bank, First Bank, and Access Bank. It is poised to mirror these successes in Europe, such that operating out of Carlingford in Ireland, Bluechip plans to build on its success with the telco and banking sectors in Africa by targeting these sectors in Europe.
Speaking on the new expansion, Olumide Soyombo, co-founder of Blueship, said that numerous businesses trust the company to provide quality analytics solutions, which has led to referrals from the company’s international clients in Africa for projects outside the continent.
“We are looking forward to combining our expertise with local knowledge to secure new strategic relationships with the experience we bring from one of the toughest markets, meaning we can offer this market the same robust solutions and services,” he said.
Bluechip Technologies, launched in 2008 by prolific investors Olumide Soyombo and Kazeem Tewogbade, plans, designs, implements and operates business application solutions and central strategies to create and maintain a competitive business advantage.
Bluechip specialises in assembling data from multiple sources and translating it into information that assists organisations in understanding trends like churn and the lifetime value of a customer, as well as how to make better business decisions based on the data obtained. To do this, the company believes that human capital is very essential to its success.
The company recently launched Primo Academy, a six-month training programme that will groom students to become data professionals without any prior experience. The company noticed a shortage of tech talent and wants to equip aspiring data professionals with the necessary skills to work in a global economy. Successful candidates will be onboarded into Bluechip or recommended to Bluechip’s pool of partners.
