Turnpikes expands with office in Canada

From 1st of April Turnpikes announces its office in Canada and are thrilled to be even closer to our customers and partners in North America.

Announcing such a big step on 1st of April might not have been the most practical move, but the team could no longer keep this news to themselves only. It is therefore now confirmed that it was not an April Fools joke, Turnpikes are indeed present in Canada.

This is an important step in the Turnpikes growth journey, and it happens after the company having been actively working on delivering an OpenText VIM solution for a large Oil & Gas company in the region. Opening the new office in North America is the solidification of the work Turnpikes have been doing in Canada.

“With this strategic move, Turnpikes has offices and staff in Europe, India and now also North America, which I believe is a very solid base to service global customers and partners.”, says Tim Stijven, Founder and CEO at Turnpikes.

With the new and expanding Canadian team, Turnpikes can now offer laser-focused and expert consulting services for OpenText ECM and OpenText SAP VIM in North America. As well as several add-on products and tools, like Insights & Analytics for SAP VIM.

The Turnpikes team in Canada includes both OpenText VIM and xECM specialists. Turnpikes is proud to announce that it will be a team with a combined experience of 30 years currently. The Canadian branch will be led by Werner Kruger, Managing Director for Turnpikes Canada and he states that,

“I have been working closely with Turnpikes on a VIM implementation project for a large Oil & Gas company for a while now. And I can now announce that from the 1st of April I have also become a part of the amazing and highly specialized Turnpikes Team! As of 1st of April, I am Managing Director of our Turnpikes department in Canada and I am eager to bring great service to customers in the North American region.
