GreyLoud: This Upstart Enterprise Software Consultancy is Taking on the Big Consulting Companies on their own Turf
Organizations need to understand that the essence of digital transformation goes beyond just implementing digital technologies. It's about aligning technology investments, strategic initiatives, and business and operational models to enable a more purposeful and effective transformation.
While there will be numerous opportunities for digital to transform the business world in significant and positive ways, organizations in the APAC region, especially in Hong Kong, are faced with acute talent shortage to manage transformation initiatives. As a result, Eastern European countries—exhibiting remarkable progress in developing their offshore IT services over the last decade—are drawing the attention of enterprises that are choosing Eastern Europe for highly skilled software engineering and technology consulting.
Is your Hong Kong-based business seeking a knowledgeable, reliable, and capable digital transformation partner?
Look no further than GreyLoud. The unique hybrid-offshoring model offered by GreyLoud enables project leadership in Hong Kong and development and design outsourced to Eastern Europe. "We utilize an innovative blend of offshore Eastern European developers and local Hong Kong project managers, which allows us to mitigate the shortcomings associated with local and offshore teams. We're able to offer customers 'the best of both worlds,' as they're able to access a deep, scalable team of highly-talented offshore developers. At the same time, have the convenience of local project managers and consultants at their disposal," says Ilona Kazimirko, founder and CEO at GreyLoud. "Combine this with our experience delivering successful transformation for some of the largest companies on the planet, and you can see why these companies look to GreyLoud as a trusted partner to deliver expert advice and great solutions for a fraction of the cost of big-name consultancies" she added.
While GreyLoud is a relatively newcomer to enterprise transformation, it has grown to over 70 staff across two continents since being founded in Hong Kong in 2015.
A dynamic and highly experienced team of developers and business transformation consultants is the driving force behind the success of the company. "We've spent much of the past two years focused on filling out our core management team. We're able to attract the best talent in our industry because of our reputation as an elite software development company in Belarus," says Ilona "A-players only want to work with other A-players."
GreyLoud helps enterprises evaluate the opportunities in their organizations where software can deliver efficiency gains, cost savings, quality control, and better customer experiences. By equipping organizations and teams with the right tools, GreyLoud ensures that clients achieve ROI on their digital transformation investments.

With this rich experience and knowledge, Ilona and her team help their clients capitalize on the opportunity that digital technologies present.
GreyLoud is also moving into Salesforce.com (SFDC) implementation, consulting, and Force.com platform development.
"Using the SFDC platform, we can create incredibly powerful workflow management and automation tools for much more than sales organizations. The flexibility of the Force.com platform is unmatched and often saves 80 percent off the time and budget to deliver business process automation projects," adds Ilona, "We can deliver the first functional release on Salesforce.com within weeks after a project starts, not months or years."
Yet another area of expertise for GreyLoud is enterprise mobility applications. Such ubiquitous applications are continuing to sweep over diverse industries, with employees expecting to have access to their data and applications anywhere and anytime.
Having executed dozens of successful projects and invested over one million of development hours, the company has built a proven process that brings together all critical inputs to building great products. From competitive go-to-market strategies to comprehensive user interviews, and a fast but complete documentation process, the GreyLoud team covers all the angles to ensure clients' products and services are primed to outcompete their rivals in a competitive market.
The uniqueness of GreyLoud also stems from the wealth of experience in running large high-performance development teams they bring to the table. The company's delivery teams have adapted the Agile methodology to the enterprise to ensure on-time delivery, effortless communication, affordable solutions, and high-quality standards are maintained. They do this by adding a much higher degree of certainty and quality standards than the usual Agile approach through an exceptionally robust estimation, documentation, and testing process. "When you are dealing with a Billion Dollar mission-critical business processes, customers have zero-tolerance for bugs or performance issues," Ilona firmly stated.
GreyLoud takes immense pride in empowering numerous clients across the finance, logistics, retail and e-commerce, and hospitality industries.
GreyLoud also worked closely with procurement and supply chain process automation experts, Visichain, to build a digital business platform to run all procurement operations for the Asia buying office of one of the leading global retailers.
Scripting similar success stories for its clients, GreyLoud plans to expand its growing Salesforce.com practice and other services to Singapore and the Greater Bay Area.
