New Zealand-based business management software vendor, Accredo, has opened a new head office in Australia as part of a move to expand its presence within the region.
Located in Melbourne, the business will be led by Ian Crates who has been appointed as CEO for Australia.
“We came to Australia because the NZ market has gotten quite tight,” Crates said. “We looked at other options such as the UK, and realised that Australia has had fantastic growth and will continue to do so. We have already had good results with our products here, and they work well as they were designed for the A/NZ market.”
Accredo currently has 20 customers within Australia.
The vendor’s primary goal is building its reseller network within the country to accompany its own expansion which will see sub-offices in Sydney and Brisbane in May, with Perth to be up and running by July, and Adelaide further down the track.
