Axios Spurs Strong Growth in North America During the First Quarter of 2009, Continues Expansion with the Opening of Four New Offices
Axios Systems, a leading provider of IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions, announces the opening of four new offices in North America on the back of a record first fiscal quarter in 2009. The four offices will be located in Atlanta (Georgia), Chicago (Illinois), Denver (Colorado) and Dallas (Texas), and are in addition to the three offices already operating in both the US and Canada.
The company has invested heavily in the North American region recently, which is further demonstrated through the opening of the new offices. Axios believes the current challenging economic environment presents a strong opportunity for software providers that are able to deliver value, reduce IT spend and manage risk.
A recent report from Forrester Research identifies the US as one of the strongest regional market opportunities in 2009. In its "Global IT Market Outlook: 2009" report published January 12, 2009, Forrester predicted that "the US IT market will edge up by 1.6% in 2009, down from 4.1% growth in 2008. While seemingly paltry growth, this will be the one of the strongest growth rates in local currency terms of all the major regional markets."
Ross McIntosh, Vice President of North America, states “The addition of four new North American offices follows record growth of our business in the region during our first fiscal quarter in 2009. We continue to witness increased demand in the North American region. With the additional locations across the US, Axios is now able to provide more accessible local support to our customers and prospects.”
