Newly founded start-up Mantel Group has launched in Australia and New Zealand, with the technology solutions provider embarking on aggressive growth plans through two new ventures.

Headquartered in Melbourne, the provider’s foundation businesses – DigIO and Eliiza – leverage emerging technologies such as digital, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning with both accredited partners of Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform.

The group’s five-year growth strategy involves hiring as many as 1,000 staff, while expanding across Australia, New Zealand and Asia through “responsible” acquisition opportunities.

Backed by a senior executive team which includes former Odecee co-founders Con Mouzouris and Michael Bodle as CEO and COO respectively, the business also aims to list on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX).

“Mantel Group is bringing its rich industry skills and experience to the local market, with aspirations to become Australia’s leading technology solutions provider,” Mouzouris said.

From an offering standpoint, DigIO develops end-to-end digital solutions, ranging from technology selection to building and operating phases.

Spanning both software and hardware deployments, the division also delivers and manages scalable, cloud-focused and automated solutions.

“DigIO invests in developing its own people while also sharing methods and learnings with clients to uplift capability and reduce reliance on vendors,” DigIO CEO, Patrick Eckel, said.

“Our business is about building positive relationships and educating clients on ways technology can have a meaningful impact on people.”

Meanwhile, Eliiza specialises in AI and machine learning, helping customers ideate, build and scale commercially viable AI solutions.

“The Australian market is beginning to recognise AI as a means to improve efficiency and enrich the customer experience,” Eliiza CEO, James Wilson, added.

“We have developed a delivery framework that enables rapid iteration of cost-effective and scalable AI solutions, helping customers form an AI strategy based on real-world results.”

Launched in November 2017, the wider Mantel Group also comprises of Rahul Dudeja as head of sales and marketing; Simon Matschoss as head of customer engagement, with Brett Henderson and Daniel Bradby occupying CTO roles at DigIO and Eliiza respectively.

“It’s an exciting time for Mantel Group, but also the broader Australian IT industry,” Mouzouris said.

"Technology has the power to change lives, so for us it’s about building strong partnerships with great people, sharing knowledge and working together to deliver positive user experiences."

In March, Mouzouris said Mantel Group will also deliver a design thinking offering to market, partnering with Melbourne-based brand and design thinking consultancy Tank.
