SAN FRANCISCO--()--Gigster, a leader in developing digital transformation applications, announced partnerships to drive business impact with key clients in multiple sectors, including financial services, healthcare and software. In addition, Gigster is launching a major new alliance and has appointed new leaders to its executive team to guide the company’s rapid expansion in the enterprise market.

In financial services, Gigster is collaborating on a portfolio of disruptive applications including automated compliance and onboarding for an innovative bank with an international clientele. “We’re excited to have Gigster as a strategic partner as we look to bring a game-changing, completely compliant and streamlined digital experience to our customers,” says Private Investment Bank Chairman Carlos Molina. “Accelerating our onboarding process is a core part of our mission to open access to global banking and private banking services.”

In healthcare, Gigster is collaborating with GlaxoSmithKline to leverage artificial intelligence in key applications, including one that analyzes sentiment to provide insights from consumer focus groups. "Gigster has partnered with us to solve some of our AI and machine learning challenges by managing project teams of hard-to-find talent," says Rajvir Madan, VP of Digital, Data/Analytics and Innovation, Consumer Healthcare Tech. "With their liquid resourcing model, they were able to assemble exactly the teams we needed incredibly quickly to deliver on our business objectives."

In accounting software, Gigster worked with Canopy Tax, a cloud-based platform for tax professionals, to create a Learning Management System that enables users to receive continuing education credits online. “Gigster delivered what we needed, not just what we told them to do, and helped us understand the level of detail required,” says Jordan Ray, Canopy Chief Revenue Officer.

To support enterprise customers, Gigster has formed a far-reaching alliance with DoIT International, Google’s largest global reseller partner. The deal ensures that Gigster customers can scale projects quickly as distributed systems in the cloud. “Gigster and DoIT International provide customers with an end-to-end solution for designing, building and running applications on the Google Cloud Platform,” says Gigster CEO Chris Keene.

Yoav Toussia-Cohen, DoIT’s CEO, praised the alliance. “With Gigster's expertise in building applications that drive business impact, and DoIT’s engineering support, we are the perfect team to drive digital transformation in the cloud,” he says.

To bolster its enterprise market focus, Gigster also announced that three new executives have joined the company.

“I am delighted to welcome Jennifer Dimas, Judy Kopa and Ellis Ishaya to the team,” says Chris Keene. “Each of them brings experience scaling enterprise software businesses well past $100 million in annual revenue. They deepen our bench with years of marketing expertise, financial and technical know-how and award-winning customer experience.”

Dimas, Gigster’s Chief Marketing Officer, has led marketing at many high-growth enterprise software companies including Plex, Demandbase, Egnyte, Polycom and Hyperion. Kopa, Chief Financial Officer, enabled business expansion and financial growth at Cisco’s AppDynamics, SAP’s SuccessFactors and Savvion, while Ishaya, VP of Customer Success and Services, started his career at PwC and has built world-class customer success organizations with five successful exits, including an IPO and acquisitions by IBM, EMC and Seagate.
