New Zealand-based cloud computing and inventory software company Unleashed Software has launched its first office in the United Kingdom in June, as part of its aggressive international expansion plans. Originally founded in New Zealand, Unleashed has operations in other global regions including Australia and the United States, and this recent announcement of an office opening in the UK builds on the internationalization of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies now operating globally.
Unleashed Software’s CEO Gareth Berry says, “The United Kingdom presents a significant opportunity for us. We have been global from day one, and the UK has always been a strong market for us, as we service traditional manufacturing and wholesale-distribution clients that the UK economy has fostered for many years.”
“The time is right for a market entry into the UK,” says Berry. “We have built up an amazing client-base from afar, servicing as best we can from the other side of the world, but given the enormous uptake in our cloud inventory management solution, we simply had to make the move and put local people in-market to service clients and partners locally.”
The size of the UK market has dramatic potential for any SaaS company, and SMBs are taking advantage of what the cloud has to offer with rapid adoption rates. Unleashed has built an enviable position as the market leader for SMBs looking to improve accuracy and efficiency within their operations. From purchasing, production, inventory and sales, the software has been built for manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to help them understand essential inventory health and enable better decision making, rather than relying on spreadsheets for mission-critical information for their businesses.
Now based in Bristol, the Unleashed UK office is being headed by Stephen Jones, who has over nine years B2B experience helping businesses throughout UK and Europe build efficiency into their operations and supporting them in finance, operations, publishing and now software tools.
