An expectation of improved local sales has prompted Australasian provider of business software products and services, ComOps, to open an office in Auckland.
The company develops and markets a range of business intelligence, mobile sales force automation, e-commerce, retail, workforce management and human capital management software solutions.
It has already deployed solutions with companies such as KiwiRail and Toll Holdings and plans to grow on this initial success in the year ahead.
Mark Heard has been appointed as sales manager to run the local office.
He has more than 20 years experience in sales and management, including 12 years within the IT industry. Previously he had been business development executive at TelstraClear for four years.
Heard has also been Australasian strategic business director with Jade Software, where he focused on the education sector selling the Jade student management solution.
He joined Jade from Ariba, where he was New Zealand country manager and was responsible for establishing the company’s local operations.
“ComOps has an exceptionally strong team and the company continues to deliver some of the most trusted technology in the industry,” says Heard.
“The company’s business software solutions are second to none and its innovative approach to solving customer issues separates it from other organisations. This made ComOps extremely attractive and a company I could truly get behind. I look forward to helping the company grow its footprint in the New Zealand market."
