AUSTIN, Texas — Transfinder Corp. is celebrating the official opening of its office here as part of its plans to expand where its clients are located.

On Thursday, local officials and Transfinder’s first Texas client officially opened the 27-year-old technology company’s first office outside of New York state.

The location for the satellite office is:
Hyridge Place
8716 North Mopac
Suite 300
Austin, TX 78759

Texas represents Transfinder’s second largest concentration of customers behind New York state. The new location will be a training and customer service center. The company ran its first onsite Transfinder University, a three-day intensive seminar for Transfinder clients, from Tuesday through Thursday, ending just in time for the ribbon cutting, company officials said.

“This new office represents in many ways the future of Transfinder,” Antonio Civitella, Transfinder’s president and CEO, said. “For the first time in Transfinder’s history, we will have offices in two locations and two time zones. We received a lot of input from our clients and we are responding. I expect we’ll have additional satellite offices in the not-too-distant future.”

2015 marks two decades of Transfinder providing service to Texas school districts. At the same time, the company continues to grow at its headquarters in Schenectady, New York, where it opened a $7 million headquarters in 2013, Civitella said.

Transfinder has become a member of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, which will conduct the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday.

“We are pleased that Transfinder has chosen Austin for its next regional office,” Charisse Bodisch, SVP of Economic Development for the Austin Chamber, said.

“Transportation is top-of-mind for our community, so it’s exciting to welcome a business that brings more mobility solutions to Central Texas.”

Heading the Austin office will be Dan Roberts, Transfinder’s director of professional services.
