The workforce communication solution teams with Empire State Development (ESD) to open a software development center in downtown Rochester, NY.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – May 29, 2018
EmployeeChannel, Inc. (www.employeechannelinc.com), today announced the company is opening a software development center in Rochester, New York. The company selected the Rochester location because of its proximity to local talent and the talent pool of several world-class universities.
The new development team in Rochester expands EmployeeChannel’s expertise in cloud, mobile, and AI technologies, which serve as the foundation of the company’s intelligent workforce communication solutions.
"The ability to attract highly talented engineers from the local talent pool, the Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Rochester, led us to expand our operations in downtown Rochester," stated Steve L. Adams, CEO of EmployeeChannel. "The incredible support we received from the Empire State Development (ESD) team and their commitment to entrepreneurial development and financial incentives made it an easy decision to work with such a committed partner. This gives us a great opportunity to expand our talented team and to fuel our growth on both the East and West Coasts."
Empire State Development president, CEO, and commissioner Howard Zemsky said, "The decision by EmployeeChannel, a West Coast software company, to open an office in Rochester’s Downtown Innovation Zone is evidence that our strategic investment in downtown revitalization is working. And by sharing space with a top-tier university like RIT, they are adding to the innovation economy that is growing in the heart of Rochester and other city centers around the state."
The EmployeeChannel team will be located at the innovative Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Center for Urban Entrepreneurship (CUE) in the heart of the city’s business district. The new facility will initially house a product development team and is expected to add sales and marketing personnel in the future.
