Increasing traction in Europe for Vena’s corporate performance management solution is driving international expansion
Toronto, Canada, April 13, 2015 – Vena Solutions, a cloud-based provider of corporate performance management (CPM) software, is pleased to announce the launch of Vena Europe and the opening of two new offices in London, England and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Building on the success of Vena’s recent expansion into South Africa and continued growth in Asia and Latin America, Vena Europe will help Vena’s growing list of European customers and partners receive more timely and localized pre- and post-sales support. This increased support is well-timed given the recent signing of several established European partners.
Vena Europe will be headed by Theo Ruiter as Managing Director. Theo has a comprehensive understanding of the CPM market in Europe, having also worked at Hyperion, Outlooksoft, Oracle and Cognos.
“I’m very excited to help launch Vena Europe,” says Theo. “The pace of business change in Europe is increasing. From regulatory change to increasing competition, companies have to adapt quickly and Vena’s software enables that rapid response. And, because Vena is a cloud-based solution with industry leading performance and security, the road to value for small, medium and large businesses is very fast.”
Vena’s unique approach to corporate performance management connects Microsoft Excel® spreadsheets to a central database and a sophisticated workflow engine. As a result, companies benefit from the flexibility and unmatched user adoption of Excel, in addition to the structure and control of an enterprise-class solution.
“The time is right to increase our presence in Europe,” says Don Mal, CEO of Vena Solutions. “This not only signals our commitment to existing European customers and partners, but also the opportunity we see to improve business performance in the region.”
