Pragmatic Levementum Expands into Australia

By Mini Swamy, TMCnet Contributor

Customer demand for Levementum's Open Source (News - Alert) technologies has witnessed significant growth prompting Levementum to expand its global presence with new subsidiary, Levementum Australia, in Sydney.

Levementum Australia will provide comprehensive services for design, implementation, support, training and cloud hosting, as well as the sale of the popular SugarCRM (News - Alert), Compiere ERP, Magneto Commerce, Mindtouch Collaboration and Pentaho BI solutions.  

The Australian subsidiary will be in charge of implementing solutions and providing support services in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. It is expected that customers will benefit from the experience and support provided by the local team.

Stephen Durant, MD of Levementum Australia was confident that the establishment of an office at Sydney would help clients to leverage the open source and business consulting capabilities across a number of industries.

Durant explained that Sydney had been chosen because of its potential, its large population of motivated professionals, its modern infrastructure and political and economic stability, and said that the center at Sydney will provide a complete array of open source technology and business consulting services as the other centers did.

With lots of experience in sales and consulting operations in the Australian and Asian markets for over a decade, Durant will be the CEO of the Australian subsidiary.

Geoffrey Mobisson, Levementum’s MD of Technology and Marketing announcing the expansion also felt that Australia was the right choice for its expansion strategy. The scope for growth was tremendous and the significant talent and acceptance of cutting edge emerging technologies were just the right factors for success.

Mobisson was confident of the potential and scope of Open source solutions like SugarCRM in Australia and it was but correct that Levementum, a global leader in SugarCRM and other open source solutions expands its presence there.

Also commenting on the company's presence in Australia was Douglas Guilbeau, MD of Levementum’s global operations. He said that like Open Source, Levementum didn't recognize boundaries and it was equipped with knowledge and technical capabilities to service clients in the markets and locations that made most sense for them. Anywhere, anytime, any language would be their motto. 

Levementum's primary focus is on solving complex business problems, using open Source solutions. Levementum is a preferred implementation partner and system integrator for SugarCRM, Compiere, Magneto, Mindtouch and Pentaho; supporting customers with locations worldwide out of its offices in Phoenix, New York, Atlanta, Portland, Green Bay and Sydney, Australia. 

Levementum announced an alliance with Pentaho, the commercial open source alternative for business intelligence. The partnership will enable Levementum customers to leverage Pentaho's BI capabilities to enhance business decision-making throughout the enterprise
