From the Americas to the United Kingdom, Abstracta Opens Office in London
Press Release — SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14, 2019 — Abstracta, Uruguay’s premier software testing and quality engineering company, announced the opening of a new office in London which will strengthen the company’s partnerships with businesses in the technology, telecommunications, healthcare, and financial sectors within the United Kingdom and across Europe.
