Software specialist, Eclipse Computer, in conjunction with parent company, UXC, has hatched a new office and operational centre in Hobart, creating 30 new local jobs over the next three years.
Eclipse, which specialises in business software and application development for public sector organisations and private corporations, is best recognised within the Microsoft Dynamics market.
While already present in Hobart, the latest office opening and job creation expands on the company’s operational presence.
Speaking at the new office opening, Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings said the technology investment will create “exciting opportunities for the State’s economy.”
“We welcome this significant show of confidence in the Tasmanian economy from a national company which has an impressive record of innovation in information technology and software development,” Giddings said.
Giddings said the office and operational centre is a “perfect fit for Tasmania” as the state works to capitalise on the opportunities created by National Broadband Network (NBN).
Eclipse CEO, Bradley Stroop, said the company made the decision to expand its Hobart operation following a string of new projects and investment in the region.
“We have witnessed a strong growth in demand from local government for local applications development and IT consulting,” Stroop said in a statement.
“The emergence of technology as an invaluable business function has rapidly changed the landscape in which we and our clients operate,” he said.
