ONE of the north’s leading IT firms has opened a new office in Denmark as part of its ongoing international expansion plans.

Belfast digital services provider Kainos has opened a new office in Copenhagen to meet growing demand for its Workday services business across Europe. Kainos Copenhagen will serve the company’s customer base for Workday Inc - a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources.

The new office is the latest in the growing expansion of Kainos’ fast-growing Workday services business in Europe and follows the opening of an office in Germany earlier this year. The Denmark move marks the fourth country the division has expanded into outside the UK.

Malachy Smith, head of Kainos’ WorkSmart division said the new office will help drive momentum in the business.

“This new office is another sign of progress in our Workday services business which is gaining real momentum across Europe. We have already established a solid pipeline in the region which we will be better placed to service with our on the ground presence."

Kristian Rude, an experienced ERP and Cloud consultant, has been appointed as head of the new office to oversee Kainos’s growth in the Nordic and Baltic regions.

He added: “I believe Workday is the best cloud technology in the market, with major growth potential in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Kainos is unique among Workday partners with a winning culture, a competitive delivery model, solid references, unique tools and excellent people."

Kainos employs over 1,000 people in offices across Europe and the US, including Belfast and Derry. Last month the Group announced 15 new high-value jobs at its Derry office on Strand Road, while in August Kainos unveiled details of a multi-million pound R&D investment and 17 new positions in Northern Ireland.
