STEP LOGIC: 26 years of successful work in the Russian IT market
Moscow, November 26, 2018. STEP LOGIC is celebrating its 26th anniversary. The company has worked its way up from a supplier of computer equipment and services to a diversified system integrator that continuously enhances the customer's business performance through innovative, high-quality IT solutions and services. The company implements large-scale infrastructure projects of any complexity in Russia and CIS countries.
STEP LOGIC employs more than 600 employees, including 300+ engineers and system architects certified by leading global manufacturers. The range of solutions and services offered includes network and system integration, services in the field of data processing and storage, construction of network and engineering infrastructure of buildings and facilities, provision of information and integrated security, unified communication systems, VCS and contact centres, solutions in the field of industrial safety and IoT, as well as a full range of services for technical support, maintenance of information systems, including consulting, auditing and outsourcing of IT. The company has implemented tens of thousands of projects to more than 8,000 customers over 26 years. STEP LOGIC cooperates with 15 global partners that are the largest international system integrators.
The company has one of the market's best tech support centres, which, for more than 20 years, has been providing maintenance and repair services for high-tech equipment of leading world and domestic manufacturers. Specialists in the service department provide services that transform the business approaches of organisations: development and implementation of regulations of the IT team's internal business processes, support of the customer's business processes with the use of outsourcing and personnel leasing, etc.
"STEP LOGIC can be considered a pioneer in the IT industry: the company appeared on the market at a time when high technologies in the country were only originating. It is difficult to imagine that STEP LOGIC employed only 15 employees 26 years ago, and today this figure exceeds 600. People have always been the company's principal value. We managed to create a very professional and tight-knit team, which daily makes huge contribution to the development of the company and strengthening its market position. We are changing with our partners and customers, improving, responding to market challenges, which helps us growing and becoming stronger. I am sure that we will conquer many new summits. We are proud of our past, we are dynamically developing in the present and are enthusiastic of the future," says Yuriy Kantarovskiy, president of STEP LOGIC.
