SAKONNET EXPANDS IN EUROPE
London, 1 March, 2006 - As part of its continuing expansion in Europe, Sakonnet Technology, the leading provider of subscription-based energy trading and risk management software, has moved to new offices in London.
Sakonnet remains in the heart of Westminster, but is now located at: Artillery House, 11 - 19 Artillery Row, London SW1P 1RT.
Sakonnet has taken an entire floor of this historic building, and crafted a platform perfectly suited for dialogues with clients and remote delivery and support of its software, Xenon®. The space has trading-floor type technical and customer support desks for Sakonnet's European clients and conferencing facilities. Its state-of-the-art infrastructure includes a scalable server room.
The move is due to the sustained growth that Sakonnet has enjoyed over the last five years. "Our European user base has grown steadily, and we have increased our staff to ensure they receive a very high level of service, including immediate responses to queries in the trading day" commented Sakonnet's London-based Chief Operating Officer, Eric Min. "On a purely practical level we needed the space and infrastructure for our larger team. But the new premises also reflect Sakonnet's values of providing a distinct offering of software and services to long-term clients."
Since its foundation in New York City in 1999, Sakonnet has evolved into a truly international company, covering energy markets across all of Europe and North America, and starting offices in London in 2001 and Rio de Janeiro in 2005.
