New office in the UK

In October the UK office of Polarion was opened in North London. The UK operation is to service the UK and Ireland business which is a significant market for Polarion´s suite of products. Many of the existing customers of Polarion have offices in different locations but with head offices in the finance or R&D business sectors in the UK. Polarion UK office is set up with product support and sales resources and has already held two successful workshops in November with two more planned for early February. Whilst preparing itself for the avalanche of enquiries, the support team at Polarion UK has been undergoing training on and familiarisation of the products and take part in the bi-weekly webinars.

Polarion UK - the Team

Mark Scott Managing Director of Polarion UK had a previous association with the directors of Polarion from being involved with PVCS and MKS source control tools and was asked if he would head up the UK operation. Scott says, "Having reviewed the toolset, the operation and the uniform high level of drive of the senior management as well as that of the staff, I feel that it is a focused team going places. One of the particularly attractive features is that the Requirements Management module is not only relevant in the programming environment. Any disparate group of individuals working collaboratively on major contracts, specifications, etc, can utilize the simplicity and flexibility the Web2.0 tool to bring the requirements together much easily in a structured way with less stress across multiple sites. That the software uses the strength and openness of Subversion ensures lowest cost solutions are delivered without compromise."
