RESTON, Va.—June 23, 2014—Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) and Case Management software, continues to see strong growth across its European operations. Appian today announced its latest expansion with the opening of its Switzerland office. Appian’s Swiss office will provide dedicated on-the-ground resources to ensure the success of its current Swiss customers, and to respond to Appian’s increasing opportunity in the region.

Appian currently works with leading Swiss organizations in financial services and pharmaceuticals, two industries of significant focus for Appian’s BPM-based Work Platform capabilities. In addition, Appian is broadly applicable across industries, delivering broader awareness, supporting smarter decision-making, and enabling faster action. Leading global organizations use Appian’s BPM-based Work Platform to grow their business, reduce costs, manage customer lifecycle (CRM), and support risk and compliance programs.

Led by Appian Europe, Appian’s overall international business has seen tremendous growth in recent years. In 2013, Appian’s total software license orders grew 86% over 2012, with 30% of company revenues coming from outside the US. Appian’s international performance is driving its on-going expansion across Europe and elsewhere. Appian now has regional HQ and direct offices across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Appian expects to continue European expansion in the near-term.

“The market for innovative workplace technology is expanding rapidly across Europe, as organizations try to respond to competitive pressures, new technologies, and changing regulatory environments,” said Ryan Gates, Regional Vice President, Appian. “Organisations cannot afford to continue to build custom solutions or retrofit existing solutions and old technology to respond to an ever evolving set of business challenges. Appian’s Work Platform allows our European customers to make a leap forward in creating solutions to modernize their business, incorporating the ability to rapidly deploy mobile enabled applications that offer a quick ROI. Our success has demanded we aggressively open new offices in Europe and a dedicated Swiss presence will allow us to work hand-in-hand with our in-country customers, helping them accelerate the value that a truly modern BPM platform can deliver.”

Appian discovers and unites enterprise data, connects users through social and collaborative engagement in the context of business data, and provides the leading BPM platform to execute business processes, enforce rules, and ensure all actions taken by users are in accordance with corporate policies and procedures.
