MicroSoft SharePoint marketer opens Oregon office

NextDocs, a King of Prussia company that markets Microsoft    SharePoint-based compliance software products for life sciences companies, has opened an office in Lake Oswego, Ore., to expand its operations on the West Coast.

The company said the 3,028-square-foot space — which will have five employees — will support NextDocs’ current and potential client base. NextDocs has about 85 employees overall.

“We’ve been steadily growing our business since its inception in 2006,” said Zikria Syed, CEO of NextDocs. “We’ve already provided services to our clients based in this region, and are looking forward to further developing these relationships in the coming years. I’m confident that this will help to support our growing client base, both in the United States and internationally.”

In addition to its corporate headquarters in King of Prussia, Pa., NextDocs also has a European headquarters in Munich, Germany; along with offices in Cambridge, England; Paris and Lyon, France.

NextDocs received the Microsoft 2010 and 2011 Life Sciences Partner of the Year award in June for its innovative use of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) technology in support of the life sciences industry.
