Increased demand for AOK by Fortune 1000 organisations enables market leader to increase its global footprint

London, 13th September 2011 – ChangeBASE, the world leader in automated application compatibility testing, remediation and conversion, today announced the opening of its North American headquarters based in the Boston area. The new office will function as the hub of the company’s US activity, serving the east and west coasts as well as the Canadian market.

“ChangeBASE is a rapidly growing company with aggressive development plans,” commented John Tate, Managing Director, ChangeBASE. “We are experiencing annual growth of 300% with phenomenal take up within North America. The US is leading Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8 adoption, and application compatibility, a key feature of AOK, is a primary driver in the success of these projects. The opening of the Boston office is a real milestone and will allow us to further maximise opportunities and develop stronger relations with our American clients and partners.”

AOK is a modular software suite which enables organisations to test, remediate and convert their application estate for compatibility with Windows 7, 64-bit, Windows Server 2008, Office 2010, Internet Explorer 8 and all major virtual platforms. AOK offers dramatic cost and time savings across the entire application testing and packaging process, ensuring high quality and consistent results.

“The ability of AOK to shorten the application repackaging and migration timescale to Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8 is a key driver in its adoption in Fortune 1000 companies,” commented Shawn Allaway, President of Converter Technology, one of ChangeBASE’s partners in the Boston region. “To be able to provide a solution that saves time, money, and resource to our clients and prospects is a major differentiator for us. We see strong potential in ChangeBASE and the opening of the US office is testimony to the great opportunities for both AOK and Converter Technology in the North American market.”

North America has proven to be a very successful region for AOK since the company’s formation four years ago. Already in 2011, 65% of sales revenue has been generated from US-based business.
