Huddle, the leader in enterprise cloud collaboration and content management, has strengthened its position as the global pioneer in the market with another record quarter. Due to increasing demand from large corporations and government, Huddle has seen sales triple in Q1 2011, with sales to new enterprise customers increasing by almost five times, compared to the same period last year.

The company has also announced the addition of Simon O’Kane, former Managing Director, UK and Ireland, at Salesforce.com, to the organization’s management team.

As Huddle’s VP Enterprise, Mr O’Kane will drive the company’s focus on enterprise and continue to build Huddle’s presence in large companies and government organizations worldwide. In his role at Salesforce.com, Mr O’Kane led the sales team and was responsible for increasing recurring revenues from £2.5 million to £80 million over five years.

“Having played a key role in building one of the pioneers in cloud computing, I am excited to be joining Huddle – undoubtedly Europe’s leading cloud computing company – and such a committed and passionate team,” said Simon O’Kane, VP Enterprise, Huddle. ”The company’s recent landmark 10 year deal with UK government and continuing success with government organizations in Belgium, Italy, Spain and Finland is testament to the fact that this is an organization destined for greatness.”

“Simon’s addition further strengthens the already exceptional team we have built at Huddle,” said Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. “We’re extremely proud that Huddle continues to attract global talent. With Simon’s support and impressive industry knowledge, we are set to triple sales year-on-year, which is a clear indication of the huge demand for flexible, scalable and intuitive cloud collaboration services in the enterprise market.”

Global growth

Following the relocation of the company’s European headquarters to Silicon Roundabout, London, the Huddle team is now expected to grow by 60 per cent this year, exceeding original expectations. To accommodate increasing demand from U.S. government, the organization is also looking to expand its U.S. presence, which currently consists of an office in San Francisco, and open offices on the East Coast.

These sales issues have to be maintained with proper management otherwise, this would complicate the total process. You have to design a standard procedure to solve the issues.evim şahane-20 dakika izle-chat-20 dakika-evim şahane-evim şahane-evim şahane
