ISS to open new technology centre in Portugal

Multinational facilities services provider ISS is to open a new, dedicated software development centre in Porto, Portugal. This it says, marks another major milestone in its digital business transformation strategy.

The new ISS Tech Portugal will complement ISS's already established technology headquarters in Copenhagen and Warsaw.

The key focus of the centre will be to develop differentiating high quality and scalable digital solutions for both the ISS business and customers globally.

"Technology is a key enabler for delivering our OneISS strategy. To become the technology leader in the facility management industry, we are not only investing in state-of-the-art technologies but are also ramping up our inhouse capabilities at a global scale," says Markus Sontheimer, group chief information and digital officer.

The location in Portugal was chosen due to its thriving technology scene Sontheimer added. "With the tremendous tech environment in the Portuguese market, we will be well equipped to access the right talent and capabilities to drive digital value creation and product innovation."

Around 100 software engineers are expected to work at the centre by the end of 2023. This adds to ISS's current technology team of more than 750 people.

ISS Tech Portugal will be operational by September.
