FormScape, a developer of document process automation solutions, is opening a new office on the West Coast.

The company also is forming a users group to support customers in the western U.S.

Paul Carr, a former executive with bTrade, will lead FormScape’s new office in San Francisco.

“Over recent years FormScape has seen rapid growth of both Direct and Channel customers in the Western region of the United States, resulting in the company’s decision to open a new office in California,” said Colin Brookes, FormScape’s vice president of global direct sales: “In addition to supporting our customer base, the new office will also enable us to bolster our expanding partnerships with key alliances such as Oracle.”
