Exact Software announces that the company will move to a new corporate headquarters located at the Technopolis Innovation Park next to the Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands. The move is anticipated to take place in about 18 months. The new state-of-the-art location will emanate Exact's leading position in the business software solutions market, and will stimulate innovation and collaboration.
The first stake for the new building was driven yesterday by the mayor of Delft, Bas Verkerk. Keeping its global headquarters in Delft was a major consideration in deciding on the location of the new building. According to Rajesh Patel, CEO of Exact Software, "We are proud that our heritage started here in Delft. This is where it all began almost 25 years ago, and where we have expanded to become the company we are today. It was a conscious decision to look for a new location for our company headquarters here in Delft.”
The Technopolis Innovation Park offers a stimulating environment for Exact Software. The area aims to attract companies with a high research & development component and hopes to become a solid reference as one of Europe’s leading science parks, as well as the IT center of the Netherlands. "Technopolis is a location that really fits our needs," Patel continues. Being a leader in the Delft business community remains important for Exact. The company strongly believes in stimulating the collaboration between business and educational institutions. “The fact that our new building is next to the Technical University was an important consideration in selecting this location. We are planning on investing further in our close relationship with the university and the IT Research Center, for example by facilitating traineeships for TU students, both through education and by exchanging knowledge."
The new Exact headquarters will inspire the leadership and innovation that are critical to success in the rapidly changing IT sector. It will be a place where knowledge exchange and teamwork will thrive, and where collaboration between business and education will flourish. The interactive environment will attract the entire community, from students, local partners and businesses, to customers and visitors.
Equally important is the working environment for Exact's 600 Delft-based employees. The new building will boast open working spaces, private meeting areas and multi-user computers available for various business purposes, while simultaneously serving as a welcoming, informal gathering place. With this, Exact aims to bring a feeling of 'home' to the office.
