Software reseller, Tectura Australia, is looking to expand its local operations to capitalise on vertical market opportunities. The decision comes after the company experienced 40 per cent growth in its first year of operation in Australia.
Tectura country manager, Peter Maggs, said the increase was largely due to the recruitment of a completely new sales and management team. This included three internal promotions and six new staff members.
"Those are the type of results we would expect from a high-calibre team," he said. "It is quite a significant investment but from the financial results it has paid dividends."
The growth could also be attributed partially to its focus on vertical markets in the fields of life sciences and aged care, Maggs said.
For the past 12 months, the company has been offering value-added business services in a bid to focus on new and existing customers. Tectura acquired Aston Business Solutions in October as a means of establishing a presence in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has since opened new and bigger premises in Melbourne and Sydney. It was now aiming to recruit Axapta and professional services staff in those cities, as well as Brisbane, Maggs said.
"We are also looking to further expand and refine our vertical market offerings," he said. "If the revenue doubles then staff numbers also increase."
