Leading European enterprise social software vendor, blueKiwi, launches in the UK
The opening of an office in Reading and the recruitment of a new local Head of Sales, Daniel Tucci, helps blueKiwi to strengthen its presence in the UK market
Reading, UK, 24 May, 2011 –
With an increasing number of businesses seeking to establish more collaborative and efficient working environments, blueKiwi Software has decided that it is the right time to launch its enterprise social software in the UK in a bid to grow the same strong presence that it already witnesses across the rest of Europe.
Why bring enterprise social software to the UK now?
blueKiwi helps companies not only to adapt to the world of Enterprise 2.0, but also to create open and connected organisations, where ideas and discussions can grow in support of innovation and creativity. Using blueKiwi introduces a new working environment, which is both efficient and motivating. Be it a question of reducing the numerous meetings or endless amount of e-mails we are all burdened with, avoiding pointless conversations or merely retaining an active memory of past projects, blueKiwi creates a powerful social network, where individuals exchange views in real time and even more accurately ‘the right information with the right people’.
Numerous industries and brands worldwide are now looking to such solutions to improve working procedures and information exchange across their organisation. blueKiwi’s pioneering software has already been adopted by champion references in Europe such as Dassault Systemes, L’Oreal, Total and Louis Vuitton to name but a few, with each company selecting to use blueKiwi in a specific business community context (e.g. for internal or external exchanges, or both).
With hundreds of groups and communities already created, blueKiwi is the only European company to have been recognised as a Visionary in the ‘Enterprise Social Software’ category of Gartner’s ‘Magic Quadrant’ for three years running.
blueKiwi in the UK – a dedicated local presence
Founded and headquartered in Paris in 2007, blueKiwi has now set its eyes on success in the UK. Conscious that the UK is a booming market, blueKiwi has decided to open a local office in Reading that will be overseen by new Head of Sales for the UK & Nordics, Daniel Tucci.
Formerly Account Executive at Jive Software, Daniel joined blueKiwi just over a month ago. His software and sales experience spans over 10 years working for major IT and telecoms companies. Daniel’s objective is clear: to make blueKiwi a leading contender in the UK and the Nordics, equipping every company with enterprise social software.
“By capitalising on informal exchanges and bringing individuals closer together, blueKiwi enables businesses of all sizes to accelerate their internal productivity, increase their innovation capacity and take better advantage of previously hidden talents,” comments blueKiwi Chairman and CEO, Jean-Luc Valente. “I’m confident that Daniel’s experience and knowledge of the enterprise social software sector will enable us to quickly achieve the same growth and strong positioning in the UK that blueKiwi already witnesses in other markets today.”
“With the launch of blueKiwi version 10.5 already planned for later this week, UK businesses, regardless of their size, will now have the opportunity to leverage one of the most user-friendly, advanced platforms available anywhere and transform their conversations into business actions and results,” comments Daniel Tucci.
