Northern Light Expands Engineering Resources
Strategic research portal provider to Fortune 500 companies adds resources to support continuing business growth
CAMBRIDGE, MA, June 13, 2012 – Northern Light® (www.northernlight.com) today announced it has expanded its engineering resources by 50 percent with the opening of a new development center in Bridgetown, Barbados. The company also extended its technology infrastructure beyond its Boston datacenter with the addition of a second datacenter in Charlotte, North Carolina, to support Northern Light’s expanding customer base. The moves support continuing growth of Northern Light’s strategic research portal business with Fortune 500 companies.
Northern Light’s Barbados facility will augment the company’s application development, content integration, and quality assurance activities currently performed at Northern Light’s facilities in Cambridge, Massachusetts and St. Petersburg, Russia.
Northern Light provides large enterprises with hosted, custom strategic research portals, under the platform brand name SinglePoint™. SinglePoint portals enable integrated search and automated analysis of a company’s primary and licensed secondary market and technical research, as well as other industry news and information that is valuable for competitive intelligence, strategic planning, product development, and other business functions. Northern Light recently launched a second product line, called Northern Light Discovery, a family of hosted, industry-specific research portals.
“We are excited to have reached the point in our company’s evolution that these additional resources are needed and practical,” C. David Seuss, Northern Light’s CEO, said. “As a service-based organization built on a foundation of innovative technology, we understand well the importance of being responsive to clients’ needs, and whenever possible, anticipating them. This latest expansion will enable us to do both.”
