Exactal is pleased to announce the establishment of Exactal Pacific Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Exactal, based in Auckland. The new company has been established to provide direct sales and support to the New Zealand market and will be appointing a local Quantity Surveyor to act as the local representative shortly.
Exactal’s expansion into New Zealand follows the successful establishment of a UK subsidiary in January 2008 and is further proof of Exactal’s growing market presence. CEO of Exactal, Mr Mark Kefford stated "Our software is now in use in over 25 countries around the world and our expansion into New Zealand is a very logical next step for us." Mr Kefford then continued, "By providing a local sales and support office, we are able to give our customers the level of service they require as well as allowing direct feedback to the developers of the system. This will ensure we continue to adapt to meet the needs of the New Zealand market." Offices have already been leased in Parnell Road, Newmarket and will begin operations as soon as the appointment of the New Zealand Product Specialist is made.
In addition to the new appointment in New Zealand, Exactal is also currently advertising to find another Product Specialist in Australia. With the new appointments, Exactal will have a team of five fully qualified Quantity Surveyors located around the globe to support our resellers and clients. Mr Simon Lovegrove, Director of Estimating Solutions who heads up the team, joined the company in August 2008 from Turner & Townsend where he was a director of the Australian operations. Commenting on the new positions, Mr Lovegrove said "Exactal recognises the strong need to have trained industry specialists working with clients running the CostX® software. Our Product Specialists have the ability to harness the power of our software and to translate it into real usage in the field. This enables our clients to get up and running much quicker and to make better use of the product."
