SmartCo Opens London Office

SmartCo announces its continued international expansion with the opening, in May 2011, of a London office to support its growing operations in the UK and Northern European markets.

SmartCo has seen an increase in the number of its international clients and as part of its internationalisation strategy, the Paris and Boston-based software company’s goal is to be present in the world’s leading financial centres, in order to best support its clients through such local presence. The establishment of operations in London will allow SmartCo to react quickly and efficiently to customer-led demand and coincides with an increased sales and account management footprint in the UK and Northern European markets.

Pascal Mougin, SmartCo’s CEO, comments: “We are very excited to have established a formal presence in London. By opening an office in the UK, we will ensure that we continue to provide the highest level of service and dedication to the UK and Northern European markets. SmartCo is fully committed to meeting the diverse needs of each of these marketplaces. While we are already the market leader in France and have achieved remarkable success in other countries around the globe, the UK has always been one of our most important target markets, as it has for any financial software company. Our presence in London will certainly influence our ability to further penetrate and understand the needs and requirements of our clients and prospects.”
