Bonn/Boston, February 28 - The start-up LeanIX from Bonn opened a branch office on 6 February in Boston, Massachusetts with a six-man team as part of its US market entry strategy. The office on the east coast is only the first step towards further expansion. Additional locations are already planned.
Last year LeanIX already expanded its customer base and won Haworth and the Flagstar Bank as two well-known US-American customers. With the presence in Boston, customers can be served even better. "We have built a strong customer base with DAX companies such as Adidas, DHL and RWE over the past four years," said Jörg G. Beyer, co-CEO and interim manager of the Boston office. "Our company has a strong focus on the US market. That is why it was a logical and important step for LeanIX to found a subsidiary in the United States last year and now open another office. "
Boston is just the beginning and is paving the way for further sites. Additional branches are planned for the end of 2017 and early 2018 in the Midwest and on the west coast. The US market entry is to be systematically pursued in the coming months.
The Start-up provides the leading enterprise architecture management (EAM) solution as a software-as-a-service in the public cloud or in the data center of the customer. The application seamlessly combines the elements of information technology with the business activities and provides companies with a simple and fast inventory of their IT. "We provide our customers with a kind of map of their information technology," said co-founder André Christ.
LeanIX enables companies of all sizes not only to transform digitally with technology "Made in Germany", but also to change the way EAM is used. Customers such as Adidas, Axel Springer, Beiersdorf, DHL and RWE already trust LeanIX and the "TÜV" -certified technologies.
LeanIX offers an innovative software-as-a-service solution for Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM), based either in a public cloud or the client's data center. The web-based platform has compelling advantages over traditional approaches, including an intuitive interface, flexible reporting and open APIs. This makes it possible to rapidly roll out LeanIX in an enterprise with minimal training required so as to start reaping added value within a short period of time. Both SMEs and large corporations from an array of industries are utilizing the solution – companies like Axel Springer, Helvetia, RWE, Vaillant and Trusted Shops. Businesses of all sizes are being acquired as customers, firms which used to be reluctant regarding EAM or had had frustrating experiences with cumbersome tools. LeanIX GmbH was formed in 2012 by Jörg G. Beyer and André Christ. With headquarters in Bonn, the company's large partner network extends throughout Europe and to Australia and the US. Investors are LeanIX Capnamic Ventures and Iris Capital. More information is available at: www.leanix.net.
