Although it’s more often associated with pina coladas, sandy beaches and Mayan ruins, Kim, the doc assembly and workflow platform, has opened a new IT Development Centre in Cancun, Mexico.
The move follows an earlier expansion in North America with an office in Atlanta, Georgia this summer. The company, which started in the UK, already has a base in New Jersey on the East Coast. The expansion also follows the appointment of Melody Easton as VP Marketing and Samantha Jefferies as VP Business Development.
All in all, Kim is going through quite an expansive phase and is now working with companies across financial services, professional services (including law firms), pharmaceuticals, and telecoms.
The new Cancun Development Centre will ‘significantly enhance Kim’s development capacity and provide additional resource pools to draw from alongside the existing teams in the US and the UK’ the company said.
Richard Yawn, CTO and Founder of Kim, commented: ‘We selected Cancun having developed, over many years, a strong relationship with one of our key technical partners who provide integration, development and Quality Assurance support to us.
‘Like all organisations, we operate a mixed model of office/remote working plus employed/outsourced technical support, to ensure that we can scale our development and support teams, deliver our product strategy and respond to customer needs.’
And Karl Chapman, CEO of Kim, concluded: ‘This is an exciting time for all involved with Kim – our customers, colleagues and partners. We are expanding rapidly, and to support this we are stepping up our R&D investment again, with significant enhancements to both our existing Enterprise solution, which has been available since May 2016 and is on version 11.3 and our Business product (Kim Document) which was released in Spring 2022.’
