Transfinder Corp., a New York-based software maker, plans to open a 10-person satellite office in Austin in early 2015

Transfinder will open the office in an undetermined Austin location to be closer to where a large number of clients are based. The company, founded in 1988 as Forth & Associates, expects to send executives to Austin later this month to identify possible locations, spokesman Rick Derrico told Austin Business Journal

Transfinder develops student transportation management systems and provide related services. Its products include routing and scheduling software for logistics. Its product is used by more than 1,500 school districts in 47 states, according to the Transfinder website

Texas represents the company's second-largest market, President and CEO Antonio Civitella said in a statement. The Austin jobs will include account executives, trainers, project managers and client services personnel, Derrico said
