UltraServe VP Operations Vishnu RoyUltraServe VP Operations Vishnu RoyAustralian ecommerce specialist UltraServe has created the new role of Vice President Operations to support delivering services to meet rapidly growing local and international demand.

Concurrently with opening its first US office in Chicago, UltraServe has filled the newly created role with Vishnu Roy, an experienced service delivery and project manager who has previously worked for Dimension Data, ASIC and IBM Australia.

UtraServe’s new VP Operations role involves managing senior project engineers, the service desk and general operations across the business, both in Australia and internationally.

UltraServe CEO Matthew Hyland said Vishnu Roy had a strong background with large tech businesses such as IBM and DiData. “He is very professional, gets things done and has a lot of experience with managing and leading teams,” he said.

UltraServe CEO Matt HylandUltraServe CEO Matt HylandAustralian ecommerce specialist UltraServe has expanded into the United States, opening an office in Chicago to meet demand for its SmartStack-powered SAP Hybris deployment and hosting expertise.

UltraServe expects its Illinois office to grow within the next few months as word-of-mouth spreads about its ability to deploy ecommerce platforms in weeks rather than months.

UltraServe recently undertook a major engagement in the US to assist a pharmaceutical multinational to put a challenging Hybris deployment back on track. It achieved this within weeks. UltraServe’s US beachhead follows a successful international expansion that has seen the Sydney-based company win business in countries as diverse as Brazil and India.

UltraServe CEO Matt Hyland said the Chicago office gave the company “skin in the game”. “We deal with some very large organisations, so establishing a US office adds to our global credibility,” he said.

UltraServe CEO Matthew HylandGlobal 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 General Manager Adam ChicktongUltraServe 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.”

UltraServe VP Sales Adam ChicktongInternational 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.
