We take a bite out of the Big Apple
Odoo is announcing today the official opening of its New York office.
Dagbert Sansen, VP Americas explains: "We've been busy in a small office in stealth mode over the last few months, establishing our presence. Now we're settling into a bigger space that will provide a strong base to expand our East Coast presence."
With a total of eight people to start with and a constant inflow of leads from the East Coast, the NY office is ramping up quickly. Odoo Chief Sales Officer Xavier Pansaers explains: "We've been growing our US business from our San Francisco office for a few years and we realized that we were getting solid traction on the East Coast. Eventually, establishing a strong presence in New York will enable us to grow faster and provide a better service to our clients."
Chief Marketing Officer at Odoo Alexandre Vandermeersch comments: "Many start ups want to change the world and then invent a new way to poke your friends. Odoo is the underdog enabling real progress: thousands of SMEs can now compete with the big guys, NGOs worldwide run their operations more efficiently through Odoo. The demand for a complete, easy-to-use online solution to manage your organization is as strong as ever. Our NY office is a key milestone in enabling us to meet their needs."
The main focus of the East Coast office will be to sell directly to small & medium sizes companies looking to grow their business through a complete suite of business applications available on the cloud.
