Local mobility vendor, Sky Technologies, is establishing a presence in the UK to ramp up sales of its products in Europe.
The moves follows its decision to establish a product distribution arm separately to its R&D company, called Sky Technologies Consulting. Sky Technologies offers SAP-certified technology solutions for middleware free mobility (SkyMobile), low-cost integration (SkyConnect) and fully-functional point-of-sale (SkyPOS) solutions.
"It became evident that it would be more productive to have the distribution part of the business as a separate entity," Sky Technologies CEO, Troy O'Connor, said. "We're seeing a lot of demand for our technology in Western Europe, and the need to deal with the differing time zones better is the reason behind the new UK office."
O'Connor said the vendor had been experiencing almost triple figure growth over the last three years, with 60-70 per cent of business coming from exports. It currently has 65 clients spread across five continents.
The new UK office has three permanent staff initially and will fulfill a channel support function for the two UK distributors and one distributor in Spain. O'Connor said it planned to have 10 staff over the next year-and-a-half.
Sky Technologies which works entirely through an indirect model, will look to appoint a distributor in New Zealand in July. It also plans on expanding its distribution network into Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Nordics, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg later this year.
