NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – UK Bioinformatics company Eagle appointed German software firm HB Technologies as its distributor in Central Europe under a deal announced today.
The products and services deal covers Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Luxembourg and allows Eagle to "significantly" expand its reach in the German-speaking market. HB Technologies will "source new projects and opportunities" for Eagle, which will continue to carry out delivery and implementation work, the firms said.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Eagle views overseas representation as key to continued expansion of its already substantial international customer base," Eagle Chief Business Officer Richard Holland said in a statement. "With existing customers in the UK, USA, France, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Malaysia, and Singapore, Eagle is no stranger to the business of working across time zones and through language barriers."
Eagle is based in Cambridge, UK, and specializes in bioinformatics, and computational and systems biology. During the summer, it announced plans to raise $1.6 million in preparation of a launch of its cloud-based life sciences data analysis product and an expansion of its staff.
