Interact opens regional HQ in San Francisco to accelerate US growth

UK tech company gears up to further expand in US market, predicting exceptional growth over the next year

[San Francisco, CA, September 20, 2016] Interact, a provider of intelligent intranets with global headquarters in Manchester, UK, has today announced its continued US expansion with the opening of its new office in San Francisco, to be led by founder and CEO Nigel Danson. Since opening its first US office in New York in 2014, the company has achieved excellent and sustainable growth both globally and specifically in the US region.

To date in 2016, Interact has seen a significant increase in enterprise sales, with its enterprise customer revenue doubling from 2015 to 2016. This has been further bolstered by the recent acquisition of Piedmont Healthcare, with nearly 14,000 users dispersed across the US. To accommodate this growth Nigel Danson CEO has moved to San Francisco to head up the new US headquarters, with future plans to open an office in London later this year, led by long term CTO Simon Dance, who has recently been appointed UK CEO.

Danson states: “Operating on both the East and West coast of the US puts us in a strong position to work with many more forward thinking organizations across the US, and continue to deliver excellent service to our existing US customer base.

From the outset Interact has focused on building a collaboration platform that is people focused rather than content focused – a criticism often leveled at other content and document management systems which fall short of delivering a rounded user experience based on a blend of business critical communication tools.

“What we have created is a platform that is intelligent and collaborative. The fact we already have some 750 companies using Interact software is testament to the people focused approach we took from the start”, Danson continues.

With new US customers such as Piedmont Healthcare now on board, Interact now provides its intranet software solutions to more than 160 US based customers and has a strong new business pipeline. With the ever increasing need for more efficient business communications across multiple sites, regionally and globally, the company is looking forward to continued growth in the US through its work with progressive organizations.
