Achievo buys Chinese outsourcing company BBX

Outsourcing services provider Achievo has acquired BBX, a Chinese outsourcing company.

Outsourcing services provider Achievo has signed a deal to acquire Beijing Beifang Xinyu Information Technology Co. (BBX), a Chinese outsourcing company with 450 employees.

BBX offers outsourced software development and IT services to Japanese companies, including NEC, Nomura Securities Co., Toshiba, and Hitachi. The acquisition of BBX will boost Achievo's presence in Japan, the San Ramon, California, company said.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. However, Achievo's acquisitions generally involve a mixture of cash and company stock, said Robert Lee, the company's chairman and chief executive officer (CEO).

After the acquisition of BBX goes through, the company will operate as a unit of Achievo and be renamed Achievo BBX. The company's CEO, Wang Shiqing, will continue to head the division.

Achievo specializes in software development for Java, .Net and embedded applications. The company's list of clients includes IBM, Sun Microsystems, and DaimlerChrylser, among others.

In recent years, the company has grown its operations in China through a string of acquisitions, including the 2005 purchase of Jeyo Computer Technology, in Guangzhou, and acquisition of Shanghai Wintech Software Co. in April. The company has also expanded in other countries through acquisitions, most recently with the purchase last month of Inproware, an IT services provider in Germany.

Looking ahead, Achievo plans to make additional acquisitions to expand its capabilities and reach into new markets, Lee said, citing Australia and Europe as markets where the company would like to grow.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
