Microgen today announced that as part of its ongoing North American expansion strategy, it has opened an office in Boston and appointed Tom Crawford, as Senior Vice President for North America.
Tom joined Microgen in 2003 and was most recently Managing Director of Microgen's Financial Services division. The Boston office is Microgen's second office in North America, where its U.S. headquarters are in New York.
The changes follow 18 months of significant growth and success in the U.S. and Canada, where Microgen's clients include some of the world's largest financial services institutions and digital media companies. Microgen's success in North America has been driven by the success of Microgen Aptitude, the company's flagship business process management (BPM) platform, and the Microgen Accounting Hub (MAH). Microgen has developed MAH using Microgen Aptitude, as a product that can be rapidly implemented to satisfy the requirements of financial organizations to facilitate consistent global accounting.
"Having set a strong foundation through new customer wins and project implementation success, we are excited to continue our growth in North America," said Senior Vice President Tom Crawford. "With the addition of our Boston office, we are now positioned to support our customers in their long-term success using Microgen's world-class technologies."
Microgen Aptitude is a rules-based BPM platform that enables companies to manage very high volumes of information and complex processes, including reporting and decision automation, system integration and human workflow/exception management. The Microgen Accounting Hub is built on the Microgen Aptitude architecture and provides financial organizations with the ability to manage and process vast volumes of data at high speeds, providing a clear and transparent view of risk and liquidity and enabling financial executives to make smarter strategic decisions.
"Further expansion into the North American market remains a key part of our global growth strategy," noted Microgen Chief Operating Officer David Sherriff. "We are very pleased to have Tom Crawford providing leadership on the ground to help broaden our geographical reach, as well as continue to deliver the very best services and technologies to existing customers in this region."
