NORTHERN Ireland-listed technology giant Kainos is expanding its global reach with a new office in Denmark.

The Belfast-based software firm is opening a base in Copenhagen to "meet growing demand" for its WorkSmart services business across Europe, which includes digitising areas such as HR, payroll and finance.

The firm, headed by Co Antrim man Brendan Mooney, also has offices in Dublin, the US and Poland. The digital services company specialises in information technology expertise for clients, particularly in government, financial services and healthcare. It employs more than 1,000 staff.

"This new office is another sign of progress in our Workday services business which is gaining real momentum across Europe," said Malachy Smith, head of Kainos's WorkSmart division. "We have already established a solid pipeline in the region which we will be better placed to service with our on the ground presence."

"Kainos is unique among Workday partners with a winning culture, a competitive delivery model, solid references, unique tools and excellent people," said Kristian Rude, who will head up the office.

"I am excited to have been given the opportunity to spearhead Kainos's Workday operation in these regions."
