We have also invested heavily in resources in the UK, allowing us to leverage our most experienced Sales Engineers and Sales Managers to expand our channels into the Nordics.” comments Keith Joseph, Regional Director, DataCore Software, Northern Europe. “This has resulted in key signing of a new distribution arrangement with AlphaBridge in Sweden.”
