Continuing it's expansion into the Nordic Market, EPiServer has announced it's newest office now opened in Finland. They are a provider of web content management based on the Microsoft.Net platform.
Although it's their first Finnish office, they are not new to the market, having a number of existing customers and several partners located there for the last two years.
"Finland is a natural next step for us and we see great possibilities for a quick expansion. We stand by our established sales process via our partner network, which allows us to keep our focus as a product company," says Peter Larsson, CEO at EPiServer.
The work EPiServer has done has proven that Finland is very similar in needs to the rest of the Nordic market. Areas including accessibility and the need to provide e-services that integrate with back-end systems are key to business-based websites.
In addition, EPiServer has recognized a trend towards more up-to-date content by a wider range of editors -- something that speaks volumes to the needs for a CMS.
This is EPiServer second office opening announcement in the last couple of weeks. At the end of April, they announced a new hosting office in Sweden. Early in April they also announced the acquisition of Netstar, a community platform provider.
It would appear they are driving forward, strengthening existing markets and offering new integrated services that should help push their Web CMS further into European organizations.
