MUNICH, GERMANY — Nearly five months after opening its Munich office, facility management softwre provider Xytech (xytechsystems.com), is continuing its expansion in the EMEA markets. To facilitate new growth that the company is experiencing, Xytech has added Triada Lakoutsi to the position of principal consultant for EMEA. She will oversee implementations across the region.
According to Frank Altmeier, director of business development EMEA, who was appointed last April to lead the efforts in Munich, Xytech has grown its user base in the region by approximately 30 percent, specifically in France and the French-speaking regions of Belgium and Switzerland.
“The entire idea behind the European office is to serve our customers through a local branch with their native language,” Altmeier explains. “As a result, our pipeline is running at historically high levels, and we are acquiring new contracts and earning new business at a level exceeding our expectations. Xytech’s blend of web- and cloud-based software, mobile UIs, best of breed facility management technology and professional services is a compelling offering for Europe”
Lakoutsi brings a background in broadcast, having worked for a major studio as a senior business analyst and project operations manager. In her new role, she is responsible for overseeing implementation of Xytech’s software. Lakousi will adapt the flexible workflows across the MediaPulse Platform to client’s precise needs, oversee complex projects and help execute the strategic expansion plans for Xytech in Europe.
“I am thrilled to join the Xytech team,” Lakoutsi says. “MediaPulse is a key component of our client’s success and I love helping businesses improve their processes to meet today’s commercial realities. My experience at the studio has given me a unique perspective in blending complex workflows with rapid user acceptance. My goal for each client is to make the implementation process as smooth as possible so they can see a rapid return on investment.”
Lakoutsi is fluent in five languages: English, French, Greek, Italian and Swedish. This is key to communicating with staff and clients in the many different regions of EMEA.
“Triada is a crucial piece of the puzzle in our European strategy. Her background in the media business, her technical acuity and leadership skills are a potent combination. We are happy to have Triada as part of the team,” says Xytech’s Greg Dolan.
