Microsoft completed its purchase of ProClarity, a Boise-based business software company, yesterday.
The big new Microsoft sign was installed on the building earlier this week and the changeover to Microsoft Boise is now complete.
Bob Lokken, former ProClarity CEO and now a Senior Director of Microsoft’s Office Business Applications, said the company will roll out new Microsoft-labeled software products in the near future.
Microsoft could have moved the company’s operations to Redmond, Washington but chose to have them remain in Boise out of appreciation for the area’s quality of life and to allow employees to remain in the Boise area.
The company has already added a few new positions to its local workforce, which now numbers around 100 employees.
Microsoft has also been working closely with Boise State University’s computer science and engineering departments to build a working relationship for potential future employment growth in the Boise area.
So . . . . we actually have a genuine Microsoft presence here in Boise !
Wow ~ how cool is that ?
