DURHAM — Serenus Technology Group, a contract software research and development firm, has recently moved into expanded facilities in Research Triangle Park.

The new corporate offices, located at 1000 Park Forty Plaza, and additional high-tech infrastructure signal growth for the company and pave the way for hiring additional software development professionals, executives say.

“With the new facilities, we will continue to implement our growth strategy with plenty of work space for our expanding team,” said Timothy Hess, chief executive officer of Serenus. “With increased square footage and team growth, we have additional capacity to serve our growing customer base.”

Hess, formerly of TogetherSoft and GlaxoSmithKline, said that Serenus plans to hold an open house in the early fall, after the team has settled in.

Serenus helps organizations that need to develop and deploy enterprise-class software applications. The company’s specialty includes software product strategic planning, global software research and development resourcing, and technical documentation and support planning.

This month, Serenus announced a partnership with Red Pelican, a software company with offices in North Carolina and California. The joint team will be working on the development of Red Pelican’s software product, which is scheduled for release later this year.

In May, Serenus inked a deal with Pittsburgh-area start-up ProductSoft to collaborate on the next phase of development for the company’s flagship software platform. Called PRM, the platform manages the “product roadmap,” which product managers use to describe the complete life cycle of a product
