The office addition marks the continued success of SirsiDynix as it expands to meet the needs of its customer base.
"Berlin is the perfect addition to our global offices, and provides both a healthy business climate and the rich talent pool we were seeking," said Gary M. Rautenstrauch CEO of SirsiDynix. "The response in this vibrant market has been inspiring, so we're looking forward to building our German team and bringing the benefits of SirsiDynix Symphony to even more libraries across Germany."
The new SirsiDynix office is located on Rosenstraße 2, 10178 Berlin, in the heart of the city centre and can support the company’s expanding sales, operations, and training organizations. The new office opening comes at a time when SirsiDynix is realizing growth across EMEA.
