Pegasystems Announces Opening of Amsterdam Office

Amsterdam, 9th July 2008 -- Following a series of wins in the European market and enabling the company to further expand its reach, Pegasystems Inc. today announced that it has opened its sixth European office in the financial district of Amsterdam and significantly boosted its sales and technical teams following a recruitment drive in the region.

Martijn Schilperoort Pegasystems’ regional manager for Benelux comments, “The expansion to the Netherlands will help us to better service our customers and partners in the region. Current market conditions will force enterprises to examine all quarters of their business operations to assess how they are best able to cope with the global credit crunch. Operational efficiency can save millions on the bottom line and Pegasystems is perfectly placed to help deliver long-term benefits by automating costly processes, which in turn will position the most intelligent of organizations to ride the stormy waters ahead. It’s an extremely exciting time to be part of this company and the wider BPM industry.”

With a business strategy to support and enable target accounts, Pegasystems is engaged with several market-leading organisations within the region including customers such as ING, Fin-Force & Rabobank.

Sjaak Smedding, director of Professional Services, Western Europe, adds “As our customers begin to embrace our technology and start to deploy it across multiple areas of their business, the need to have Pegasytems certified system architects and developers - native to the Netherlands - is imperative in assisting them as they grow and form their own centres of excellence.”

“Pegasystems has been established in Europe for nearly 15 years and the region accounts for a significant percentage of our global turnover, concludes Drew Scarano, director of sales, Western Europe. “This new office responds to the pace of growth that we’re experiencing in Europe and specifically in The Netherlands, as our customers seek to implement rules-based BPM solutions designed to help them ‘build for change’ throughout their organizations.”
