AIM Software is responding to market demand in North America for the business applications it added to its GAIN data management platform last year with the opening of a second office in New York.
The second office builds on an initial sales office and will provide professional services, local support and direct account management for strategic wins in the region including two Tier 1 buy-side firms that are implementing AIM’s business applications with a view to improving operational efficiency and reducing data costs.
The office will strengthen the company’s presence in North America and will be led by senior executives who previously worked at Interactive Data, Calypso and Rabobank.
Martin Buchberger, CEO of AIM, says: “We view recent client wins in this region as a strong sign of demand. These clients made it clear to us in the selection process that they prefer targeted business applications rather than tool-based custom development when it comes to data management.”
The company’s second office in New York adds to bases in Austria, Luxemburg, Switzerland, France and the UK, and is the first milestone in a strategy that will invest heavily in North America to satisfy demand for AIM solutions over the next year. As well as the GAIN enterprise data management platform, AIM provides business applications covering security master data, reference data, pricing, corporate actions and legal entities.
