Nitro, a leading provider of document productivity and workflow solutions, announced reaching 500,000 customers globally as one of Ireland’s largest commercial and retail banks, Allied Irish Bank (AIB), has signed on to rollout Nitro to over 1,000 employees. Nitro has experienced over 50% growth in Europe since announcing the opening of its Dublin office at the 2013 Web Summit.
Australian-founded with global headquarters in San Francisco, Nitro simplifies the way people create, edit, sign, and share digital documents. Best known for its award-winning Adobe® Acrobat® replacement, Nitro Pro, the company recently unveiled Nitro Cloud, providing flexibility to businesses when sharing, signing, and collaborating with documents.
Nitro officially established its EMEA headquarters in Dublin in January of last year with plans to hire 50 employees in its first two years of operation. Since then, growth expectations have doubled with plans to expand to over 100 staff by the end of 2016. Plans are also now underway to open an EMEA data centre in Ireland by the end of 2015. The growth in EMEA has been faster than in any other region in which Nitro operates over the past 12 months.
“We’re thrilled to welcome AIB on board as our 500,000th customer” said Sam Chandler, Nitro’s Founder and CEO. “Over the past 18 months, we’ve doubled our growth in EMEA. Our world-class team in Dublin is helping customers like AIB close contracts faster, collaborate more efficiently, modernise their document processes, save money, and more elegantly and securely than the old ways of paper and email.”
Enda Quain, Head of Technology Integration and Assurance at AIB, said: “We’ve started using Nitro within our organisation and have been blown away by how much faster, more functional and cost-effective it is compared to what we used before. From a business perspective, this move was a complete no-brainer because Nitro is twice as fast at a fraction of the cost, with savings in excess of a hundred thousand euro.”
John O’ Keeffe, Nitro’s VP, EMEA added, “We’re delighted to have AIB on board as our 500,000th customer. The team we’re building here in Dublin has done an incredible job supporting the growth of the business and the future here is looking very bright. We’ve been really impressed with the calibre of talent we’ve hired and expect that to continue as we expand recruitment for a range of positions, including multilingual sales, account management, customer service, marketing, and operations staff, as well as engineering and product roles.”
