Strong demand prompts Halogen expansion

Halogen Software announced Monday it has opened a new field office in the Netherlands to deal with growing demand in Western Europe for its talent management solutions.

A new product development office has also opened in Quebec City.

“We've seen strong demand for our solutions in Western Europe," Halogen vice-president of sales, Phil Rugani, said in a statement. "We've expanded into the Netherlands to better serve this region."

The company said it selected Quebec City as a satellite product development office because of a strong base of software developers in the region, many with Software as a Service and talent management experience.

“Our expanded platform team is comprised of tenured Ottawa-based software developers and new team members in our Quebec City office," Halogen vice-president of product development, Marc Brûlé, said in a statement. "Together they're focused on building an even stronger foundation for all our products."

The Netherlands office will have four staff, while 11 people will work out of Quebec City. Overall, Halogen employs 450 people.
