Press Release 30 May 2012

Dublin, Wednesday 30th May 2012 - Aasonn, a global human capital management (HCM) and technology services company, announced that it has established its European headquarters in Dublin, with the creation of 30 new, high-quality jobs with the support of IDA Ireland. Aasonn currently operates out of the United States and the Philippines, with consultants in key locations across the world serving clients in more than 30 countries. Aasonn is the most experienced partner in the world for HR solutions in the Cloud and has worked with over 1,300 customers globally.
Aasonn delivers cloud-based HCM software solutions for customers across all industries. The company built its reputation primarily as a HCM solutions consultancy. Aasonn is also an SAP channel partner, through which it resells and delivers implementations of the SAP® Business ByDesign™ solution. The Irish operation will mirror the company’s U.S. operation, with the aim of selling into the E.U.

“Aasonn has been delivering its services in Europe since 2008, while working with some of Europe's largest companies,” said Allen Peterson, CEO, Aasonn. “Since the establishment of our new EMEA headquarters, Aasonn has signed many new customers, attracted top talent, and generated significant awareness for Aasonn's professional services across Europe. There has never been a better time to invest in talent and this expansion will allow Aasonn to continue to deliver the same world-class services that Aasonn is noted for throughout the world.”

Aasonn has appointed Fiona Buckley, Vice President, EMEA Professional Services, to lead its consulting team in Europe.  Buckley is based in Dublin. Most recently at Telefonica/o2, Buckley brings over 10 years of experience in professional services and human resources roles, working with leading organizations in Ireland. Key clients that Aasonn has performed work for in Ireland include Aer Lingus and eircom.

Commenting on Aasonn’s Irish operation, Allen Peterson, CEO of Aasonn said, “The decision by Aasonn to establish its European headquarters in Ireland is as a result of the country’s excellent reputation for hosting the overseas operations of companies at emerging level. Ireland also provides an excellent highly skilled workforce with the innovative tendencies to make this operation a success. I would like to thank the Irish Government and IDA Ireland for their continued support of Aasonn and I look forward to the ongoing growth of Aasonn in Ireland.”
