Industrial software company Senseye has announced the opening a new office in Paris.

The cloud-based software firm’s new location is hoped to improve the level of support it can offer to manufacturing and industrial companies in Europe.

Headquartered in Southampton, the firm provides ‘predictive maintenance’ technologies which are used by Fortune 500 organisations, employed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of production and maintenance operations.

Senseye’s move to Paris is part of a global expansion drive to provide regional support to its industrial customers around the world. It follows the opening of new offices during 2019 in Essen, Germany, and Nashville, USA.

The firm’s operation in Paris is led by Peter Livaudais, VP of strategic accounts, who has 30 years of experience working in the European technology industry.

“Most large-scale Industrial organisations are wrestling with how best to embrace digital transformation in a way that delivers tangible benefits to the bottom line,” said Livaudais.

“Senseye’s technologies and methodologies are proven to deliver those benefits and with unprecedented pace. Our expansion in France furthers our ability to help our customers to achieve significant operational improvements with hands-on support.”

It has also strengthened its team in France with the appointment of condition monitoring specialist Guillaume Lavergne, who joined Senseye in September.

Simon Kampa, Senseye’s founder and CEO (picutred), added: “Senseye is helping industrial organisations around the world to transform their operational environments and achieve best practice in manufacturing and maintenance.

“Our move to Paris is a result of growing demand for Senseye in France and its neighbouring countries. We are delighted to meet that demand and boost the support we are able to offer locally.”

Senseye was last year named one of the UK’s 51 Artificial Intelligence Innovators.
