Sitrion announces Ronan Lavelle as UK country manager

Focusing on social enterprise, SAP-based self-service HR & mobile enterprise software tools

London, UK, 17 July 2014 - Sitrion (previously known as Newsgator) has announced that it has appointed Ronan Lavelle to run its UK business. Sitrion specialises in technology that creates a 'social enterprise' environment where people not only connect, but collaborate, innovate and communicate more effectively, while streamlining processes and supporting automation of every-day tasks. Customers are typically FTSE-listed organisations, with 100,000+ users of Sitrion's social enterprise, HR self-service and mobile enterprise software tools. Globally, customers include brand names such as ING, Nokia Solutions, Barclays, Aviva, Diageo and EADS.

Ronan Lavelle brings almost two decades' experience in the collaboration and content management software market, with previous roles including senior-level positions at OpenText, Hummingbird, Dolphin Software and ARX. Ronan has worked particularly closely with the SharePoint community, but also has experience in the mobile enterprise and SAP environments.

Says Ronan Lavelle: "Sitrion already has a growing customer base in the UK and with increasing interest around collaboration technology and the social enterprise, we differ in two main ways: we have a proven track record; and our solutions don't just connect people, they integrate with other systems - such as BPM, CMS, CRM - so we create a single place where they can work together, share information and create discussions that are linked to specific projects, processes and tasks, rather than conversations taking place in siloes."

"Particular targets include Microsoft SharePoint and SAP users who want to extract more value from those investments. All vertical markets are relevant, but we are seeing strong interest from HR departments and internal communications managers, as well as the IT department of course. Also, as we are optimised for mobile devices, we can support organisations' BYOD strategies."

Sitrion has also pioneered the concept of Mobile Micro-Apps, which reduce the design & build process down to just a couple of hours using off-the-shelf code and no special expertise.

About Sitrion
The company's global customer base includes leading brand names such as ING, Merck, Nokia Solutions, Barclays, Aviva, Diageo and EAD.
