NEW YORK--()--Moove IT and December Labs, leading custom software and development providers with 26 years of combined expertise, today announced their merger to become Qubika, a global leader in digital transformation for enterprises.

This is an important, exciting, and timely strategic move for our two companies,” said Ariel Ludueña Karhs, CEO of Moove IT. “Our merger comes at a critical moment when customers are increasingly seeking trustworthy and innovative technology partners to drive effective digital transformation.

Qubika, which will be privately held, will be headquartered in Texas, with service delivery from a network of locations in the United States and Latin America. Each company has regularly received strong ratings for its work quality and culture, evidenced by Moove IT achieving a phenomenal Net Promoter Score (NPS) over 80 and both companies’ regular recognition in the “Great Place to Work” awards, including December Labs achieving third place and best among software companies in 2023 for Uruguay.

The team at December Labs has become known for delivering consistent, high-quality services to customers globally,” said Martin Palatnik, CEO of December Labs. “By combining with Moove IT, we are thrilled to offer our customers new and innovative solutions.

In joining the customer bases and expertise of Moove IT and December Labs, Qubika will be equipped to design, develop, and deploy key service lines of custom software engineering, data, analytics, UX/UI research, and cloud services.

We are increasingly seeing enterprises including nearshore providers in their service mix for mission-critical and high-value digital engineering work,” said Charles Phillips, co-founder and managing partner at RECOGNIZE. “Moove IT and December Labs have distinguished themselves as competitive, high-quality service providers with some of the best NPS scores and lowest attrition rates we have seen in the industry.
