Jeeves Opens New U.S. Headquarters in Austin, TX New Location Will Support Existing Customers and Planned Growth STOCKHOLM, April 3, 2014—Jeeves Information Systems AB (Jeeves), a provider of ERP software solutions for small to midmarket manufacturing and distribution companies worldwide, today announced that it has opened its U.S. headquarters in Austin, TX. The new office was opened to support Jeeves’ existing U.S.-based customers, as well as planned growth and expansion. “Austin’s business friendliness, flourishing tech community, central time zone, and cost of living make it the perfect place to lay down roots and grow our North American operations,” said Jeff Tognoni, CEO of Jeeves. “Austin’s cachet is skyrocketing when it comes to innovation, and has become a top destination for college grads to seek opportunity, so we are looking forward to attracting the talent we need to expand our presence in the North American market.” Tognoni added that Austin’s heritage of uniqueness and ‘weirdness’ also complements Jeeves’ own message to the marketplace. “Our mission is about empowering our customers to be different,” he said. With a core of existing customers using Jeeves ERP in the U.S., Tognoni is looking to bring the product to market much more aggressively stateside. “ERP solutions available in the U.S. have a one-size-fits-all mentality, whether they are generic multitenant SaaS solutions being used by everyone, or ‘80s-era client-server solutions with hard-coded features and workflows,” he said. “Any way you look at it, buyers are being forced to run their businesses the way their software tells them to. At Jeeves, we believe that strategy should drive systems, and not the other way around.” Tognoni believes that Jeeves ERP has a unique value proposition for small to midmarket manufacturers and distributors in the U.S. who want an affordable ERP system that can support their optimum business processes and strategies. “Jeeves ERP’s dynamic application model architecture allows our customers to implement—and upgrade—a highly custom system on top of a rich standard feature set. In short, it allows our customers to be different, and being different is the only durable source of competitive advantage.” Jeeves’ new office is located at: 7500 Rialto Boulevard Building 2, Suite 230 Austin, TX 78735 +1 (512) 394-8566 About Jeeves Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Stockholm, Jeeves Information Systems AB (Jeeves) is a provider of Swedish-made, cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solutions for small and midsize businesses.
