Driven by demand from clients seeking to strengthen their e-commerce offerings in the region, the new office, located at Eastbourne Terrace opposite Paddington Station, already has local staff.
London is UltraServe’s second offshore office, after Chicago, which continues to grow rapidly with staff numbers passing the double-digit mark during the past year. UltraServe also has offices in Sydney, at Pyrmont and in the Central Coast suburb of Erina.
UltraServe, a private company whose owners include founder Samuel Yeats and technology investor Simon Hackett, is a specialist provider of e-commerce services in the cloud.
UltraServe CEO Matthew Hyland said he expected the UK office to grow like the US office. “Based on demand, I expect we will grow staff numbers rapidly within the next 12 months,” he said. “London is a great place for our second international office. This location is a good hub that allows us to serve the whole of the European market. The UK itself represents a large market opportunity and, importantly, it’s where many of our partners are based.”
Mr Hyland said UltraServe was expanding its presence globally to meet demand from international clients. “Our top customers are international businesses that drive our growth by contracting us to deliver projects for them in new regions,” he said.
“For example, we’ve signed agreements to deliver e-commerce systems for one client in Asia, the Americas and now Europe. We pursue a purposeful strategy of specialisation to clearly differentiate ourselves in the market – we are the experts at running e-commerce applications in the cloud.”
UltraServe’s growth momentum has generated a slew of recent appointments including Bill Sullivan as Service Desk Manager and Ram Pothula as Business Development Manager – both in Chicago – and Andrew Jones as a Business Development Manager in Sydney.
