With the creation of the new centre, staff from two existing SunGard offices (Antwerp and Mechelen) will relocate into a single location, covering the anticipated needs for people and infrastructure. The move is expected to be completed by November 2007.
Hans Cobben, chief operating officer of SunGardâs AvantGard business, commented: âWith two existing teams needing to work closely together, there is significant value in having them consolidated into one location. This new centre will provide a number of benefits for us and our customers in mainland Europe â serving as a customer support centre delivering first- and second-line support services for the AvantGard product set, as well as a design centre for our AvantGard Payments and AvantGard Treasury solutions. We are well positioned to support future European customer growth.â
