Pyxis Mobile, a leading provider of innovative wireless software that meets the diverse needs of the financial services industry, today announced its European expansion, opening a new office in London and appointing Derick O'Brien as UK Sales Director. Pyxis Mobile's drive in the region comes in response to growing demand from customers, which include over 40% of the top 50 global asset managers, whose European operations are now accessing critical business data from their mobile with mPlatform applications. In addition, Pyxis Mobile has engaged partners throughout Europe to provide regional sales and support in a number of major metropolitan locations.
Pyxis Mobile designs wireless software applications specifically to meet the diverse needs of the financial services industry. Combining their extensive financial industry experience and wireless technical expertise, Pyxis Mobile developed mPlatform(r) solutions, a pioneering suite of industry tailored wireless applications used by mobile financial professionals, that extend critical business data from existing enterprise systems to the mobile device of their choice.
"Our ability to aggregate data is making us closer to our customers" says Tom Halloran, Managing Director, Putnam Investments. "We can now sit next to them and pull up all the information on the BlackBerry device with Pyxis Mobile to show them how many of their offices we've visited, how many of their representatives we've seen, in any period of time. Additionally, the nice thing about Pyxis Mobile is they have committed to work with us going forward. They will be bringing me ideas and showing me how other people are using this technology, for we can make our plans".
"We are excited about our continued expansion into the European financial services market, as it demonstrates our unwavering commitment to the financial services community in the U.S. and abroad" said Shane Hughes, President & CEO of Pyxis Mobile. "Pyxis Mobile has a laser focus on helping financial services firms raise productivity and stay abreast of the latest advances and trends in the marketplace and our move today will undoubtedly help make these benefits more widely available to a greater number of firms in Europe."
