Supply management software provider, BravoSolution, has expanded into the Australian market with a new office in Sydney.
The team will support existing clients in the region, including DP World and Bupa and will focus on Australia and New Zealand as key markets.
The Sydney office will also act as the regional hub for the Asia-Pacific market.
The company has also appointed Anthony Larratt as managing director APAC, while Claire Sexton also joins the APAC leadership team as account director from the UK, where she spent 8 years with BravoSolution.
Larratt said he was looking forward to leading the APAC operations from Sydney.
"Expanding into Australia is key to BravoSolution's growth plans for the region," he said.
"The company wanted to establish a local presence so customers can interact without language or time zone barriers.
"BravoSolution will create a support centre of excellence in Australia to provide customers with ongoing help and advice."
It is hoped that the centre of excellence will create a number of additional jobs over forthcoming years, according to a company statement.
BravoSolution uses tailored software solutions and expertise to help supply management executives manage supplier relationships, accelerate procurement cycles and improve processes.
BravoSolution chief executive, Nader Sabbaghian, said the company was already working with a number of Australian companies and had seen a real appetite for robust strategic sourcing solutions.
"Procurement professionals are increasingly looking for tailored solutions that deliver real return on investment," he said.
"Specialising exclusively in supply management means BravoSolution truly understands what businesses need to become more streamlined and ultimately stay competitive in a global market."
Founded in 2000, BravoSolution has rapidly expanded to have 16 global offices across 12 countries.
