Belfast, London, Copenhagen – 24 October 2017

Kainos Group plc, a leading provider of Digital Services and Platforms, announces today that it 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.

This new office marks a further advance in the expansion of Kainos’ fast-growing Workday services business in Europe and follows the opening of an office in Germany earlier this year, the fourth country the division has expanded into outside the UK. This coincides with the Group reaching 100 customers for Kainos Smart, its innovative product that helps clients automate testing of their Workday configuration, both before and after initial implementation.

Kristian Rude, an experienced ERP and Cloud Consultant , has been appointed as the head of the new office to oversee Kainos’s growth in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Mr Rude brings a wealth of leadership and technical experience to the role, along with a strong network and understanding of the business landscape in the regions, having worked in the Nordic and Baltic regions for over twenty years.

Malachy Smith, head of Kainos’ WorkSmart division commented: “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’s ERP experience and credentials, not to mention his local knowledge and network, gives Kainos a strategic advantage and will enable the business to continue to drive momentum.”

Kristian Rude 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. Therefore, I am excited to have been given the opportunity to spearhead Kainos’ Workday operation in these regions.”
