“It became clear to us last year that our continued strong growth through the economic crisis presented both an opportunity and a challenge;” explained Andrew Bredenkamp, CEO of acrolinx, “we wanted to take the opportunity to go after the huge market we see opening up for our Information Quality technology, and at the same time address the challenge of how to best look after our existing customers around the world. Strengthening the regions will also allow our headquarters in Berlin to focus on continuing to deliver technology which is far ahead of the competition.”
Last year, acrolinx made more than half of its global revenue in North America and is expecting to make 20% of its license revenue in Asia in 2010. The company is also expanding into France and Scandinavia. The establishment of dedicated sales, marketing, support and professional services teams in each of the regions will help acrolinx to better address their specific needs.
