Interview with Koca Bosku, President of Seavus Group
Seavus symbolizes success. World's most renowned companies use Macedonian software from Seavus. The secret for success is reflected in the company's development and the method of work which is constantly being upgraded. The President of Seavus Group, Koca Bosku, shares Seavus story in an interview for Kurir.
We established Seavus in 1999, at two locations – in Malmoe, Sweden and Skopje, Macedonia. Back then we concluded that there is potential on the Swedish market to offer Macedonian products and this assessment turned out to be true. Four years later, in 2003, we opened an office in the U.S., 2005 in Serbia, 2007 in Belarus. Last week in Belgrade we signed an investment agreement with the Serbian Minister of Economy for the second time. This is another tranche of funds that the Serbian government will invest in our company for employing more people.
One of the reasons for opening offices outside the country is the deficit in personnel. We do employ people who are specially trained in our new Seavus Education and Development Center, but sometimes this it is not enough. Especially when you work for top-corporations, we need experience in the implementation process.
Our products are being sold globally. Our product Seavus Project Viewer for instance is used by FBI, CIA, Volvo, IKEA and so on. Our estimates show that more than half of Fortune 500 companies use our software.
Seavus was not held-down by the economic crisis. During the crisis the company achieved growth. For a moment we were troubled, and thought that with some inertia that we will be affected. Fortunately this did not happen; I believe the reason is that our customers are global players and the world economy is still growing at 2 to 3 percent. Yet, the main reason is that our excellence allows our customers to justify the reason why they use our products and services.
Our profits are invested in developing new products, and a team of people is constantly working on innovations that are always happy to present.
