Lakeside Software opens Ann Arbor R&D office

Lakeside Software has followed up on its announcement from earlier this year to open an office in downtown Ann Arbor.

The Bloomfield Hills-based software developer plans to use the research and development facility for product design and development of its 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.

"We plan to hire about 195 people over the next five years," says Brinton Baker, chief marketing officer with Lakeside Software. "The Ann Arbor facility will receive those first hires. I see the majority of these 195 people being in the Ann Arbor area."

The 14-year-old company received a $731,000 tax break from the Michigan Economic Development Corp to establish the R&D facility in Ann Arbor. Lakeside Software had been looking at moving to Silicon Valley to be around other IT and software firms, but it found a comparable tech cluster in Ann Arbor.

"There is a tremendous quality of people there," Baker says. "The level of expertise is what we're really looking for."
