Global ecommerce cloud business UltraServe today announces a strengthened management team as the company prepares to accelerate its international growth.
UltraServe has appointed Matthew Hyland to the role of Chief Executive Officer, charged with managing the company’s operations and international expansion, while the company’s founder Samuel Yeats will guide its strategic direction from a strengthened board. Matthew has previously worked within the business as Chief Financial Officer and strategic advisor.
Samuel Yeats said appointing Matthew as CEO was a logical step for UltraServe. “We’re recording strong year-on-year growth and have successfully launched our services internationally,” he said.
UltraServe today unveils a new version of its SmartStack Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) tailored for medium-sized organisations, which it expects to turbocharge export sales, especially in Asia.
During the past year, Australian managed cloud services provider UltraServe has seen exports go from a standing start to 35 per cent of sales due to demand for SmartStack, which provides hybris commerce services for enterprise customers in Australia and New Zealand as well as multinationals in the US, Europe, Brazil and India.
UltraServe General Manager Adam Chicktong said SmartStack for midmarket meant the company no longer had to walk away from smaller sales. “This more modular version will support websites with 250,000 visitors a month whereas our enterprise version started at 2.5 million a month,” he said.
“As a result, we’ve more than halved the monthly cost for midmarket companies wanting to deploy hybris, which appeals to many prospects we’re talking to in Asia, not to mention Australia.”
International and domestic sales are booming for Australian managed cloud services provider UltraServe after last year’s successful launch of SmartStack, its hybris-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
As well as more than doubling its contracted base of customers during the past year, UltraServe has recruited an extra 15 people at its "ultra urban" head office in Pyrmont and its NSW Central Coast development centre with continued expansion into Auckland, London, Chicago and Asia.
The company has also successfully entered the enterprise market, winning business from ASX-listed and multinational corporations, building on its previous success in the medium-sized business sector.
UltraServe’s announcement of its PaaS sales success comes in the same week as technology analyst Telsyte released its Australian Enterprise Applications Market Study 2015, which found that 56 per cent of Australian organisations are already using or investigating PaaS to deploy custom software.
UltraServe VP of Sales Adam Chicktong said the company was expanding at an unprecedented rate. “Our growth is on the back of the international success of our globally unique hybris PaaS, SmartStack,” he said.
After a year of record growth, Australian managed cloud services provider UltraServe collected the Cloud Partner of the Year award at a major technology industry presentation last night.
UltraServe won the award at the 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards from a competitive field that included Kloud Solutions, Data#3 and HubOne.
The win topped off a year of record growth for UltraServe, which operates globally from its head office in Pyrmont and a development centre on the NSW Central Coast. During the past 12 months, UltraServe has undergone significant expansion throughout Asia, the Americas and the UK.
Jonathan Ross, who represented at the ceremony last night, said it was an honour to accept the award on behalf of the team at UltraServe.
