Bastion Group was founded in November 1998. The company's first important project was the provision of a complex solution for Toyota dealers. Our task was to supply network, computers, servers, and office equipment. We developed special software for this project which we named TurboService. The Company initially focussed on auto business software (TurboService), IT support, and the provision of solutions. We then executed several profitable contracts for TurboService implementation and monthly support. In 2000, the company launched TurboService 3.0, which was based on the principles of flexible adaptation to any customer’s requirements without a need to rebuild executable files. This technology is called Smart Client. Two years later we came out with TurboService 4.0 to provide compatibility with Microsoft platforms. We still support and develop this version. In 2008 the financial crisis had a large impact on the auto business. The company was faced with the necessity to reduce costs. We became more efficient and remained profitable. In 2010 our turnover increased by 20 percent, and in 2011 we also expect an increase of 20 percent in comparison to the previous year. In 2011 Bastion Group entered new business areas with Suport Group – which provides a powerful way for global IT companies to enter the Russian-speaking market, and outsourcing utilizing our knowledge, experience and resources to meet the requirements of customers regarding planning and budget.
