Asseco CE took over the firm completely, including 70 workers, after it purchased a 100-percent share in the Czech company on December 17.

“This partnership with a strong player in the international market will enable us to become a relevant partner for large multinationals,” one of TurboConsult founders Vladimír Jareš said on the day when the deal on the strategic partnership was signed.
