Leading ECM SI Expands in Response to Market Demand

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIGNEX, the leading Systems Integrator for Open Source technology based content management solutions today announced that it had opened an ECM consulting centre in Edison, New Jersey. CIGNEX has opened this centre to better meet the needs of its rapidly growing client base in the East Coast. This is the company's third consulting centre, after its world-wide headquarters in Santa Clara CA, and the 100 person centre in Ahmedabad, India.

"In the last couple of months alone, we have begun new engagements at Medco, Sesame Street and Hunter College. Given the response we are getting from this geography, we believe it is imperative for us not just to have a 'presence' but a full fledged consulting centre so that we can better serve our customers," said Mr. Srini Sridhar, the SVP of Worldwide Consulting at CIGNEX.

The company has roped in Bob Stein, a 20 year veteran of Verizon as Account Director. In his role as Account Director, Mr. Stein will take responsibility for all of CIGNEX's East Coast clients and for the consulting operations in Edison, New Jersey. Prior to CIGNEX, Bob managed several large IT initiatives in support of business objectives most recently as Senior Manager of Web Development in support of all of Verizon Business product sales. Prior to Verizon, he was with the United States Air Force as a software developer and communications officer.

"The East Coast with its focus on financial services and media has been at the forefront of adopting leading edge Open Source platforms," said Mr. Navin Nagiah, CEO of CIGNEX. "Given our growth and reputation in providing Open Source ECM solutions, a substantial east coast presence with both sales and consulting was the logical next step for the business," he added.
