This week we announced the opening of our first European office and the expansion of our worldwide team to meet rapidly growing demand for industrial-scale predictive analytics that can help global industrial and transportation organizations capitalize on the explosion of data driven by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
We are ecstatic to bring onboard software industry veteran Carl Fransman as our Managing Director, EMEA, bringing over a decade of experience growing and managing European operations for early stage software companies. Most recently Carl managed EMEA for MCA Solutions, a leading supplier of supply chain planning software, which was acquired by Servigistics, now part of Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC). Joining him is Philippe Thys, Director of Solutions and Innovation for Predikto. Philippe is a former Technology and Solutions executive with respected software companies like i2 Technologies and MCA Solutions.
European companies are enthusiastically embracing the advent of the IIoT. Fransman commented, “With the growing popularity of servitization, forward-thinking companies want better insight into equipment performance and value delivered to their customers. Predikto’s capabilities are tailor-made to meet this need.”
