CrowdVision announces second European location
The leading provider of hardware-agnostic crowd and people movement solutions, CrowdVision, is pleased to announce the opening of their second European location, in Belfast Northern Ireland. This new location will focus on driving customer-focused, high quality data analytics and will extend and complement the technical capacity provided from the London headquarters. On the 1st February 2018, CrowdVision opened its new office and over the next couple of months will be building an initial team of nine (9) people.
CrowdVision also intends to leverage other Belfast organisations to help support the additional forecasted growth. Stuart Mills, Chief Operating Officer at CrowdVision said “We researched a variety of locations but felt that Belfast offered the right mix of capabilities along with strong cultural alignment. We are confident that the new operation will quickly demonstrate its effectiveness in delivering quality services to our customers.” CrowdVision has worked closely with Invest Northern Ireland in order to get support and guidance, and to leverage local expertise. This has helped significantly in moving from conception to realisation in just a few months.
Fiona Strens, Chief Executive of CrowdVision, believes that the expansion into Belfast will enable CrowdVision to further focus on customer success and delivering high-quality, robust solutions that address real business needs, “I am extremely pleased about the launch of our new Belfast facility and the continued growth of CrowdVision. Belfast provides CrowdVision with access to a rich talent pool, which will support our future product and services vision.”
