Facility Management Software Company Xytech Expands European Footprint, Hires Principal Consultant for EMEA

Wednesday, September 5, 2018 — Munich, Germany, September 5, 2018 — Nearly five months after opening its Munich office, Xytech, the leader in facility management software for the broadcast, production, media services and video transmission industries, is continuing its expansion in the EMEA markets. 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 explained. “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”
