UltraServe, a privately-owned company in which technology entrepreneur Simon Hackett first invested in 2014 and is now the majority shareholder, is achieving strong international growth having opened its US office in 2016 and a new European office recently.

UltraServe specialises in delivering e-commerce applications in the cloud, using its proprietary SmartStack software technology to provide a fast, reliable and resilient way to provision and maintain an e-commerce suite for enterprises. During the past 18 months, UltraServe has won multiple global customers, doubled its staff numbers, established serious traction in the US market, and has continued to enhance its technology and services.

UltraServe CEO Matthew Hyland said the additional capital would enable the company to accelerate its international expansion and innovation. "We'll use these funds to further our geographic expansion into Europe, to build out our US operations and to accelerate product enhancements," he said.

Driven by demand from clients seeking to strengthen their e-commerce offerings in the region, the new office, located at Eastbourne Terrace opposite Paddington Station, already has local staff.

London is UltraServe’s second offshore office, after Chicago, which continues to grow rapidly with staff numbers passing the double-digit mark during the past year. UltraServe also has offices in Sydney, at Pyrmont and in the Central Coast suburb of Erina.

UltraServe, a private company whose owners include founder Samuel Yeats and technology investor Simon Hackett, is a specialist provider of e-commerce services in the cloud.

UltraServe CEO Matthew Hyland said he expected the UK office to grow like the US office. “Based on demand, I expect we will grow staff numbers rapidly within the next 12 months,” he said. “London is a great place for our second international office. This location is a good hub that allows us to serve the whole of the European market. The UK itself represents a large market opportunity and, importantly, it’s where many of our partners are based.”
