Belatrix Software Wins Key Award For Its Impact On Bogota

April 12, 2019

Belatrix was recognized by Invest in Bogotá for “Greatest impact in the city in services” and "Impact in media"

Belatrix Software, a leading software development company, has won the award for having the greatest media impact in Bogotá and was also nominated in the category “Greatest impact in services”. The award was presented by Invest in Bogotá. Fernando Gonzalez, Belatrix’s Vice President of Marketing and Colombia Country Manager, attended the event and accepted the award on behalf of Belatrix.

Invest in Bogotá is an investment promotion agency that aims to support companies that believe in the city as an ideal destination to grow. The initiative unifies the efforts of the Bogotá Chamber of Commerce and the Bogotá City Government.

Several companies were nominated in categories such as “Greatest impact in the city in manufacturing”, “Project with social impact – sustainability”, and “Project with greatest impact in creative industries”. In order to choose the winning companies, Invest in Bogotá used a set of criteria that included creating employment, the amount of investment, international reputation, and social responsibility, among others. Belatrix won the award in the category of “Impact in media” and was nominated for having the “Greatest impact in services”, for being a leading software development company that helps organizations thrive in the digital world.

Before opening its delivery center in Bogotá, Belatrix carried out research and analysis in order to choose the best location. Colombia was very well positioned because of its infrastructure, economic stability, and its strategic geographical position. It has become a key technology hub in Latin America, and which has a rapidly growing reputation for the strength of digital talent in the country.

Over the past year, Belatrix has grown in Bogotá from a team of 40 employees to over one hundred people. We now have over 700 employees in locations across three continents. The architects of our modern offices in Bogotá designed it specifically to promote self-organization and collaboration, reflecting the values of Agile development which Belatrix has been using at the core of its practices for many years. As a result, Belatrix’s offices were featured by Office Snapshots, a leading online resource that highlights innovative workplaces.

Belatrix has also been active in supporting local developer communities in the city. We have hosted several meetups where professionals and enthusiasts in technology gather to discuss subjects that range from specific programming languages to strategies and advice to improve their performance or succeed in the labor market. Last week Belatrix hosted a meetup about Angular and Firebase which was led by Alan Buscaglia, one of our UI software developer engineers.

Fernando Gonzalez, commented upon receiving the award: “We are very happy with the growth we have achieved over the past year. We have made significant investments in our Bogotá delivery center and it’s rewarding to see the results of these efforts. We plan to keep investing and growing in the city, as we provide new opportunities to our employees, and deliver world-class software solutions to our clients across the world”.
