Igloo Software, a provider of social business software in the cloud, recently announced the opening of its second European office alongside growing traction in the Asia-Pacific region. One in four of the company’s over 200 customers have international operations and Igloo now has three regional offices around the world providing sales, service and support to its global customer base.
“Igloo has expanded rapidly since launching in 2008 and now has customers in 80 countries worldwide,” said Andrew Dixon, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Operations for Igloo Software. “The establishment of our second European office is a reflection of the rapidly growing demand for Igloo and its multilingual capabilities in geographies around the globe.”
The second European office, which has been named the European headquarters, is located in St. Gallen, Switzerland and headed up by Marco Palatini who was named Vice President for the region. Palatini was previously the Managing Director of European Operations for OpenText Corporation and was largely credited for opening up the European market for the company. Prior to that, Palatini served as Chief Executive Officer of Arcplan Information Services AG.
While their solution is currently available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, they do have their eyes set on other languages in the coming months, of course this is also supported by the $5 million in venture funding the company raised back in January 2012.
