According to Michael McDonnell, Configure One’s Vice President for Product Development, the expansion was driven by a number of factors. “This expansion allows our U.S. and European offices to continue to provide unparalleled support to our rapidly growing customer base around the world. In addition, as we continue to add personnel, we need to maintain a productive working environment for all our team members.

Most importantly, at the core of the business is the continued development of our flagship product, Concept™. Every aspect of this expansion improves our ability to keep the development of the product moving in the right direction”.
