TECSYS Announces European Expansion
MONTREAL, September 22, 2015 — TECSYS Inc. (TSX: TCS), an industry-leading supply chain management software company, today announced strategic initiatives destined to bolster the Company's presence in the European supply chain management software market and strengthen its global customer care infrastructure.
The first initiative is the opening of TECSYS' European headquarters and the appointment of Mr. Mark Hawksley to Vice President Global Services and Strategic Initiatives for Europe. Already a member of the executive team, Mark brings more than 30 years' experience in the supply chain management industry. A British citizen, Mark has been with TECSYS for more than ten years, most recently as Vice President Professional Services.
With a number of opportunities now developing in Europe from both existing and new customers, most notably a significant supply management undertaking for a global healthcare company, growth for TECSYS' type of solutions is evident.
To support this growth TECSYS will also be opening a UK-based Customer Care Support Center. A number of TECSYS' customers today operate in geographically-dispersed multi-site supply chains, many of whom have the need for 24x7 support. With the addition of the European support center, TECSYS will be able to adopt a customer care workflow model leading to improved responsiveness and heightened customer satisfaction.
"These dedicated initiatives in Europe will reinforce our deep commitment to offer the region our proven SCM solutions and strengthen our Customer for Life mantra," stated Pedro Patrao, TECSYS' Sr. Vice President, Global Operations. "Mark's deep industry knowledge and proven track record will help us take TECSYS to the next level in the European market."
"With a customer base already in place, a roll out for a global customer in the region, and the increasing need for customer support, this is the right time for TECSYS to extend its footprint to the region," said Mark Hawksley. "I'm pleased to be part of this next stage of TECSYS' development to meet the growing demand for our solutions in Europe while remaining at the forefront of our global customer support continuum."
