Advent Software, the San Francisco-based buy-side technology vendor, has more than doubled the number of certified project management and consulting team members supporting clients in Europe, the Middle East and Africa during the past 12 months. The team now includes 65 qualified Advent consultants and implementation project managers.
According to Advent, as a result of the uncertain economic climate, many of its clients across the EMEA region are looking to technology to achieve automation and operational efficiencies to help insulate their businesses from macro-economic conditions. Helping clients manage and grow their business has always been a top priority for Advent, and growing the locally-based consulting team in EMEA is an important area of focus for the vendor.
All Advent consultants complete a certification program to obtain product expertise before they start working with clients. The team supports implementation and consultancy requirements for all Advent applications, from the firm's hedge fund accounting platform Geneva, winner of the best fund management platform in Waters' Buy-Side Technology Awards for the past five years, through to the firm's wealth management suite, comprising: Tradex; Moxy, Advent's ubiquitous OMS; and Advent Portfolio Exchange (APX).
"We want to ensure our clients can count on us to help them improve their businesses with Advent solutions, and we have been focused on initiatives to grow both our resources and our knowledge base in the region," says Håkan Valberg, senior vice president and general manager of Advent Software EMEA.
