The company wants to invest €466,000 by 2021. Simultaneously, Visma Labs is aiming to spend €15 million on salaries by 2025.
The Economy Ministry plans to allocate €3.8 million as state aid for the company, although it originally asked for a stimulus of €5.2 million. The aid still needs to be approved by the government, TASR wrote.
What will the centre offer?
The centre will focus on innovative solutions in cloud and mobile technologies, algorithms, automation and artificial intelligence. Employees will also work on innovative solutions in technological security.
Visma wants to sell payroll, HR management and procurement products through the companies within its concern, which they will then continue providing to end customers. These include Visma Labs in Scandinavian countries and the Netherlands, TASR wrote.
Visma, established in 1996, is one of the biggest software companies in Europe.
