everBe – a key player in consulting and next-generation services, specializing in Finance, HR and Cloud solutions – has announced the opening of its European Service Center based in Bordeaux.
The Service Center employs staff that already operate in five languages and are involved in implementing the Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management Cloud solutions, in addition to developing integrations, maintenance and support for Workday solutions as well as outsourced services.
The company plans to hire 30 more staff in the first stage of an ambitious three-year growth plan.
“Finding a location that is synonymous with quality of life and dynamism for our employees and their families was a key criterion” states Jean Manaud, President of everBe. “We chose Bordeaux from among 10 large and medium-sized cities throughout France. Bordeaux enjoys a global reputation with excellent schools and universities.
It’s a highly valued location.
The city’s connections with European capitals are constantly improving. It is also a hive of tremendously dynamic activity in digital initiatives and FrenchTech, which is why so many key players have decided to move here.”
“This center represents a key stage in the performance of our mission which consists of supporting the transformation of Finance and HR functions and innovation in these fields, to ensure that they can continue to add more value to companies”, adds Jean Manaud. “We’ve been observing an increase in the rate of adoption of SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions in Europe by Human Resource and Finance Departments.
The solutions offered by Workday are a tremendous success with companies. This center is a key component of our strategic plan”.
Invest in Bordeaux (Bordeaux Gironde Investissement) has supported everBe in its property search and by introducing the company to local economic stakeholders, professional associations and Grandes Ecoles (top French universities).
