A broad range of organizations based or operating in the region – from

strategic business or IT initiatives that directly affect the bottom
line. Additionally, Rimini Street provides clients with a 24x7x365
highly personalized service model with a named, assigned Primary Support
Engineer (PSE) that reduces the need for extra maintenance resources and
headcount associated with inefficient vendor support.

part of our global expansion strategy, bringing a more innovative and
value-driven software support option to organizations that operate, or
are based across the region,” said Seth

support across EMEA makes this the perfect time to continue our
investment in the region.”
