October 30, 2014 – Kalibrate, provider of strategy and technology solutions to the global fuel retail industry, has announced the official opening of its Australia center of excellence in Melbourne. The company’s fifth office in the Asia-Pacific region, Kalibrate Australia represents the company’s continued investment in emerging, high-growth markets as it seeks to broaden its delivery and service capabilities within the region.
“We are thrilled to be permanently located in a region where we already serve many high profile fuel retailers,” said Bob Stein, president and CEO of Kalibrate. “Our proximity to clients will enhance the services they receive as well as provide a base for us to attract new personnel and expand our market share. We have invested in broadening our strategy and technology portfolio, and with the continued trend of de-regulation in key markets in the region, we are excited about the value that we can provide to fuel retailers throughout Asia-Pacific and Australasia.”
The Melbourne office serves as Kalibrate’s client support and project management hub for the region, including the local base for the company’s new Strategic Advisory Services division. Led by highly experienced Kalibrate personnel, the office will provide the full range of client delivery and support services, enabling the company’s “follow-the-sun” technical help desk infrastructure for its growing, global client base.
“While we are focused on providing best-in-class support services for our clients, we are also excited about the potential new business that can be generated from our Melbourne operations,” said Mark Hawtin, International Commercial General Manager. “With a new go-to-market strategy focused on value-add strategic services and SaaS offerings, we are well positioned to create more value for fuel retailers throughout the region.”
