San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2011
Today vWorkApp, a cloud-based job dispatch and scheduling application, announced the opening of their US Office. vWorkApp's US office will allow them to service their growing US customer base, and to pursue a more aggressive growth strategy in the region.
vWorkApp has benefited from the explosive growth of the smartphone market. The service and transport sectors, which have traditionally been slow to adopt new technology, have been rapidly adopting the new devices in order to better manage staff that are on the road most of the day. vWorkApp's technology, which makes use of the iPhone, iPad and Android phones, has allowed them to grab a leading position in Australasia. They are hoping to consolidate these gains and to extend them into the US.
Brendon Petrich, vWorkApp's CEO, says: "There's huge potential for vWorkApp in the US. A large contingent of the US workforce doesn't operate from an office. These companies are struggling to stay competitive with larger companies that deploy sophisticated logistics tools and services to manage their work. vWorkApp provides the same level of sophistication but to the SMB market."
vWorkApp are opening their offices in San Francisco's SoMa district, a hotbed of technology companies. Petrich says: "There's a few hundred technology companies within a square mile of where we are. An important part of our strategy is to partner with other technologies companies who are making software for small businesses. Each technology on its own is useful, but when you combine them, that's when you see real innovation happen."
Aish Fenton, one of the companies co-founders, has been appointed to head up the region. Aish Fenton has been with the company since its beginnings in New Zealand and managed the company's technology and product development. Aish Fenton says: "We've had a great response to vWorkApp in the US so far. We're finding that there's a huge demand for software that lets small businesses compete with the big guys. Consumer hardware, such as the iPhone, and the Internet are now providing small businesses with better quality tools than are available to the large, and slower to move, enterprises."
