Expanding to Ahmedabad

At the end of 2019, leading digital commerce specialist Astound Commerce launched a new office in Ahmedabad, India, supporting the company’s rapid expansion and further strengthening the skill set of its workforce. “Most IT [information technology] companies trust India when it comes to outsourcing because of the country’s strong IT sector,’’ says Deep Vora, Director and Senior Solution Architect at Astound Commerce Ahmedabad.

Located in Mondeal Heights, an Ahmedabad business landmark, the office is close to prominent residential and commercial hubs and serves as a symbol of innovation and opportunity.
