OptumSoft Zurich – Saurabh Malpani, General Manager
“The Business Harbour had solutions for every problem”
“OptumSoft decided to expand its engineering operations in Switzerland. We had no presence on the ground and I was relocating to Zurich as General Manager.
We needed to register the company, get my work permit, hire people, draft letters and contracts. It was not an easy task involving many laws, complex regulations and an unbelievable amount of paper work. The Business Harbour had solutions for every problem, and they got all of this done.
A few months later, we are here, well established and can focus fully on our work. This would not have been possible without The Business Harbour. They have solutions for the entire business process and their staff are cordial and co-operative.
I am delighted to have chosen them as our partner in this journey.”
Jean-Paul Forget – Contractor employed by The Business Harbour
“I recommend The Business Harbour to anyone who is looking for a solid, secure, Swiss, dedicated salary hosting service partner”
I had the opportunity to work for a company in Lausanne as a consultant. However, I did not want to work as a freelancer, so I started looking for a solution. I had no clue about salary hosting.
The Business Harbour has been very pro-active from day 1, providing me with simulations and giving me specific answers for my particular situation as a Geneva resident. They were particularly smart and sharp in addressing the legal and tax aspects. I started my assignment with my client the next day, and the administrative part was all handled by The Business Harbour.
I’m totally comfortable as I get all the paperwork taken care of as well as on-time payments of my salary, together with an excellent support service. I’m delighted with their service and I recommend The Business Harbour to anyone who is looking for a solid, secure, Swiss, dedicated salary hosting service partner.
