Lakeside Software to open downtown Ann Arbor office, add 73 jobs

Lakeside Software is set to open an office in downtown Ann Arbor later this spring, a move that will bring 73 new jobs to Tree Town's city center.

"We were impressed with the amount of resources available and the community support," says Dan Salinas, vice president of business development for Lakeside Software.

The Bloomfield Hills-based firm was aiming to set up its new office in Palo Alto, California, the heart of Silicon Valley. The 14-year-old company's leaders, University of Michigan graduates, weren't really considering Metro Detroit or even Michigan until a Michigan Economic Development Corp official cold-called them and made the case for the Great Lakes State.

The argument worked. Lakeside Software dropped plans to expand in California and instead focused on growing its Metro Detroit home base and a new office in Ann Arbor. The MEDC included a five-year tax credit worth $731,000 to seal the deal. "In Palo Alto, quite frankly, we would have been one of many companies," Salinas says.

Lakeside Software creates management software solutions for the Windows operating system. Its SysTrack software combines comprehensive system monitoring capabilities with sophisticated analysis for applications and users to create a total management solution.
