First Line Shows Strong Growth, Becomes a Leading EPiServer Partner

January 25, 2012

New York, Stockholm and St. Petersburg (Russia), January 25, 2011 — First Line Software, a premiere provider of custom software development services, strongly expanded its web development practice in 2011, increasing the total number of certified EPiServer developers to 21. With its EPiServer development group now over 70 strong, this recent achievement makes First Line one of the top EPiServer partner in Eastern Europe and the #4 largest partner in the world, based on the number of certified developers.

“First Line first became an EPiServer Partner at the beginning of 2011,” said Gustav Lagercrantz, Chief Operating Officer of EPiServer. “Now, less than 12 months later, they have firmly put Russia on the map as one of the most promising destinations for EPiServer development in the world. We are excited to see First Line grow and expand its highly trained pool of EPiServer developers to meet the growing customer demand.”

“Our EPiServer group became a key growing practice within the company in 2011, and we hope to continue this trend in 2012,” said Alexander Pozdniakov, CEO, First Line Software. “In particular our focus is on Scandinavia, because this region is also the most natural fit for First Line’s model of nearshore software development. We are based in St. Petersburg, Russia’s leading technology hub that is located extremely close to all Scandinavian capital cities, and has a large, highly educated and extremely productive IT workforce. We hope that going forward, more Scandinavian companies can benefit from working with one of the leading and fastest growing EPiServer web development teams right next door.”

First Line specializes in implementing complex backend content management environments for large online media, fine-tuned for maximum productivity. In particular, First Line has the methodology and the expertise to accomplish rapid migration of existing online assets to EPiServer that leaves the original look and feel and the URL structure intact while giving editors the full range of EPiServer’s online engagement capabilities.
