Global inventory management software company, Unleashed Software, has taken its UK expansion plans one stage further with the growth of its UK head office in Bristol.
Hoping to capitalise on the city’s reputation as a thriving centre for innovative technology businesses, the company is recruiting to expand its South West team, following an announcement in October last year that it had secured an additional £3.7 million investment to grow its global business base.
Unleashed provides cloud-based inventory management software for thousands of SMEs globally and has grown rapidly since it was founded in New Zealand in 2009.
As demand for its software in the UK grows, the company is further expanding its Bristol-based team this year with the servicing and support of its large customer base in the UK a top strategic priority. “We will be recruiting for great people to enhance our team in the UK across all front office functions of sales, marketing and customer management,” says Unleashed Software CEO Gareth Berry. “Being located in Bristol with access to a large local talent pool makes a lot of strategic sense for us. From March, our Head of Product, Matt O’Grady, will be relocating to Bristol to engage directly with partners and customers. Being on the ground with the local team will advance the development of UK-specific products and services and rapid integration with the growing ecosystem of other best-in-breed SaaS business solutions.”
Lisa Miles-Heal, Unleashed CTO/GM says: “Our cloud-based inventory management software is used by UK manufacturers and wholesalers to help them scale their businesses by increasing efficiencies and using real-time data via the cloud, at anytime and anywhere.
“With Bristol at the forefront of the UK’s digital technology sector and with our success in key segments like the food and drink industries, the South West is the ideal place for Unleashed to locate our UK head office. We have been a global enterprise from day one and are looking forward to further strengthening our UK presence.”
From purchasing and production through to sales and stock control, Unleashed Software’s products help businesses to understand their essential inventory status and take better decisions using accurate cloud-based data rather than relying on traditional spreadsheets for crucial business information. Its products also enable businesses to meet regulations and the accreditation requirements of their customers with clear product and supply chain traceability.
Stephen Jones, Unleashed Sales Leader for UK & EMEA adds: “It’s an exciting time in Bristol. With funding confirmed for the new Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone and the global #1 tech incubator located here in Bristol, we are eager to support and contribute to the city’s growing success.”
