Linx-AS Expands to United Kingdom and South Africa
The U.S.-based firm announces the opening of offices in London and Johannesburg to support a growing global client base for its SAP consulting and software development services.
King of Prussia, PA – June 4, 2009 – Linx-AS LLC (www.linxas.com), a consulting firm specializing in product lifecycle management (PLM) and environmental, health and safety (EH&S), has announced the opening of offices in London and Johannesburg. With a focus on business process improvement through SAP technology, Linx-AS was founded in 2000 with global headquarters located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
“From the beginning, Linx-AS has serviced a global client base,” states Jeff Frye, president of Linx-AS. “However, with the uptick in demand for our products and services in Europe and the market opportunity that Africa strategically represents, we’re in a strong growth position. Expanding to the UK and South Africa right now only makes sense.”
As news headlines regularly feature the latest product recall and green regulations reach across borders (and supply chains) with great ease and impact on IT departments, Linx-AS finds its niche position to be a compelling story for global SAP customers. Leveraging SAP for product lifecycle as well as regulatory allows businesses to not only be compliant, but to drive compliance data upstream into the creative process-greener innovation, reduced product failures, and swifter speed to market are just some of the benefits.
Werner Simpson, director, Linx-AS Africa, explains, “SAP has a rich history in Africa, yet much of the SAP PLM and SAP EHS Management functionality is not widely understood or implemented. With a dedicated practice here in South Africa, we can certainly provide immediate value to organizations running SAP.”
Linx-AS Africa officially launched operations in December 2008. The Linx-AS Europe entity, operating as Application Solution Providers Europe Limited, was established in May 2009.
