Flatirons Opens New UK Office

As Companies Across Europe Seek Cost Savings and Rapid ROI from Enterprise Content Lifecycle Management Solutions

Flatirons Solutions, the leading provider of content lifecycle management (CLM) consulting, technology, and outsourcing for Fortune 1000 companies, announced today that it has opened a new office in the UK in response to greater European demand for enterprise content lifecycle management solutions that help organizations achieve cost savings and rapid return on investment (ROI).

Flatirons’ new UK office is housed in the Spirella building north of London.

With decreased spending and growth at a halt across Europe, companies are looking for smarter ways to operate, both in order to remain profitable and to continue to meet customer expectations. One area in which organizations can fine-tune their operations to achieve cost savings — and improve rather than compromise quality —is in the way they manage enterprise data and information throughout its lifecycle. Flatirons’ enterprise CLM solutions help organizations cut costs from often out-dated systems and processes while maintaining or improving operations, also delivering ROI on aggressive timelines.

As a result, demand for Flatirons’ enterprise CLM solutions has continued to grow not only in the company’s strongholds in northern Europe and Germany but also across the continent with customers including British Airways, Cambridge Assessment, Editions Francis Lefebvre, Rolls-Royce, and others. Organizations across industries are adopting Flatirons’ CORENA Suite of CLM solutions as well as its Digital MediaSuite and Application Retirement for InfoArchive solutions, the company’s EMC-certified solutions for digital asset management and retirement of legacy applications.

“Flatirons has a rich history serving the European defence community and aerospace OEMs as well as clients across other data- and content-driven industries,” said Toralf Johannessen, Flatirons’ EMEA president. “Together with demand for our EMC-certified solutions and long-term partnerships with EMC, Alfresco, Componize, and SDL, we are in a unique position to address customers’ CLM needs no matter what industry or European country they operate in.”

Flatirons’ CEO Geoffrey Godet added, “As more organizations realize the business benefits of efficient content lifecycle management, they require the right technology, the right experience, and local support to pursue the best solution. With the addition of our new UK office and established partner network, Flatirons offers all three to help European clients adapt to today’s tough economic climate.”

Flatirons’ UK office is located north of London at Letchworth Garden City’s Spirella Building. Its other European offices are in Birkerød, greater Copenhagen (Denmark), Kongsberg (Norway), Örebro (Sweden), and Frankfurt (Germany).
