On November 24, Cambio organized a grand celebration at Ramada Hotel, Colombo, in honor of the company’s 10th anniversary in Sri Lanka. The guest list included some of the most notable figures in Sri Lanka’s IT industry. Among them were Cambio’s general manager of Sri Lankan operations (Cambio SL), Dharshana Jayawardena, and the director of Cambio Software Engineering in Sri Lanka as well as the Creative Solutions group, Sushena Ranatunga.
Dharshana Jayawardena delivered the opening address in which he thanked Cambio Healthcare Systems, Creative Solutions, and Cambio SL’s diligent staff for contributing to the success of their Sri Lankan operations. He also used the opportunity to emphasize the magnitude of Cambio’s impact on healthcare industry.“What makes us [Cambio SL team] incredibly proud is the awareness that our work goes beyond software development,” said Jayawardena. “Our contribution to Cambio COSMIC facilitates the work of over 100,000 medical professionals in Sweden, Denmark and UK, and improves lives of over 5,000,000 patients. That is what we call success.”
Cambio Healthcare Systems is an e-Health company headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. The company counts over 400 software professionals who develop Cambio COSMIC, comprehensive and easy-to-use software solutions for healthcare providers.In late 2004, Cambio established a small dedicated team in Sri Lanka with Creative Solutions, one of the country’s leading software development and outsourcing companies. The team initially counted five members, however, that number increased to over 80 in only five years.
Based on the success of their Sri Lankan team, Cambio established their own subsidiary in Sri Lanka in 2010. Today, Cambio SL counts well over 200 employees.“Creative Solutions has brought numerous clients to Sri Lanka over the past couple of decades,” said the Director of Creative Solutions, Sushena Ranatunga, “but Cambio Healthcare Systems is undeniably one of our biggest success stories. By February 2016, we expect to see Cambio SL’s office expand to 255 employees and I cannot express how proud we are to have contributed to the creation of such opportunities for Sri Lankan talent.”
According to Ranatunga and Jayawardena, the crucial factor behind Cambio SL’s success is the expertise of Sri Lankan IT professionals that have joined Cambio over the past 10 years.To reward some of their longest-serving staff members, Cambio SL gifted the latest iPad models to 8 of their employees who celebrated 10 years with the company. Another 38 of their employees were also recognized for completing 5 years at Cambio SL this year. Peter Cornelius, Head of R&D for Cambio Healthcare Systems AB, Sweden, attended Cambio SL’s 10th year anniversary.
“Before joining Cambio, I have been involved in offshore operations with several countries” said Cornelius, “But I must say that I have had the best experience working with software professionals from Sri Lanka because of their work ethic, their attitude, loyalty, and technical and language skills.
In Sri Lanka we have managed to enrich our teams with top-notch professionals and we’ve grown the operations to a fully-fledged software development centre over 10 years,” Cornelius said. “Looking ahead,” continued Cornelius, “Cambio will work on developing new features to extend our software solutions. We are planning further expansions of our Swedish, Danish and UK offices, as well as our Sri Lankan operations.”
Cornelius concluded that it is Cambio Sri Lanka team’s loyalty and commitment that has made the company’s success possible.
