Business software vendor Tavant is expanding its operations in Europe and is looking to acquire a system integrator in the region to help build its sales reach.
The Santa Clara, California firm sells into the financial services, retail, manufacturing and media sectors, among others, and is expanding its current operations in the Netherlands (Eindhoven) and the UK (Nottingham), as well as opening a new near-shore development centre in Portugal.
The expansion will be driven by local hiring, training of local talent, as well as looking at the acquisition of a Europe-based systems integrator, said Tavant. This will further support existing customers in the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Norway, France, Switzerland, Germany and Italy.
“Our Europe expansion is all about closer collaboration with our partners and the growing demand from our European clients, said Sarvesh Mahesh, CEO of Tavant.
The company recently opened its second US development and innovation centre in Dallas, Texas, and added 300 new staff across the US. It says it has grown revenue 40% YoY, helping to fund its European expansion.
