Pamplona, Spain, November 4th, 2015
Openbravo, the world leader in the commercial open source software space, has inaugurated its new headquarters in Pamplona to accommodate the expected development within its strategy in the retail sector and its growth in Europe that today accounts for 41% of its turnover.
The new offices will allow for the expected growth of the company in the retail sector. The Openbravo solution, the Commerce Suite, is a reference solution for specialized international retailers requiring a store solution that responds to today's omnichannel challenges. The new facilities will also help to provide a higher quality service to a growing number of international distributors and customers in this sector.
The offices, which have been up and running since October and stand out for providing greater space which virtually doubles the previous size, already have 61 workers with the intention of reaching 80 next year. To do this, the company will select professionals with experience in the retail sector both in software development and consulting services.
The new facilities incorporate best practices in interior design, to allow a high degree of collaboration and productivity of the different teams. They also have entertainment areas integrated into the workspaces, offering a better working environment for employees. In particular, they are modern and elegant offices similar in style to those of global technology leaders such as Facebook, Twitter and other technological world leading companies headquartered in Silicon Valley.
With this move Openbravo strengthens its position and commitment to Pamplona (Navarra) being at the core of its origins, and Spain as a key market for the company, also driving growth in the rest of Europe, Latin America and Asia-Pacific.
In the words of Marco de Vries, Chief Executive Officer of Openbravo, "our growth and greater collaboration with partners and international customers who visit our headquarters more often required a change and modernization of our facilities. We are pleased that occurred in Pamplona, where the company started and where we will continue to invest in creating high-level jobs.".
