UK customer relationship management and IT consultant, Hart Square has opened a new APAC headquarters in Melbourne, which is set to create 25 jobs.
Victorian technology minister, Gordon Rich-Phillips, said that while Hart Square was also opening offices in other Australian cities, it chose Melbourne as its regional headquarters because of Victoria’s concentration of not-for-profits and existing requirements for the company's services.
“Our strengths are recognised globally and Victoria is attracting more and more international investment in key areas like software development, enterprise management software and cloud computing,” he said.
“Already in 2014, Germany’s SAP, France’s Capgemini, India’s Dexler, Cyient and Servion Global Solutions and US companies IBM, TinTri and Equinix have all announced major new multi-million dollar operations in Victoria which will create even more high-skilled jobs.”
Since November 2010, the Victorian Coalition Government has helped facilitate over $1 billion in new technology related investment and over 5,000 jobs, according to a technology minister spokesman.
The company advises associations, professional membership organisations, charities and not-for-profits on customer relationship management technology to build member, donor and stakeholder engagement.
Its services include technology audit, business process reviews, vendor selection, end-to-end project management and software implementation.
Its UK clients include the NHS Confederation, Girlguiding UK, the British Academy, British Medical Association, Royal Institute of British Architects, Royal College of Pathologists and the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
