SHE Software has launched in the US, opening its first office in Chicago and creating five highly skilled jobs in its team of health and safety software experts.
The news comes as SHE Software CEO, Matthew Elson, prepares to move across the pond to head up the firm’s US operations.
Over the next 12 months, SHE Software plans to recruit 10 more people into a range of roles including sales, marketing and implementation specialists.
The next year will see the company focus on raising brand awareness in America, as well as continuing to drive sales, it is already off to a strong start, having won two new clients so far.
SHE Software chose to enter the US after seeing a sharp increase in the number of enquiries from the states.
The company has also recently launched its exclusive partner programme, teaming up with organisations across the globe to help clients achieve improved safety performance with increased visibility of health, safety and compliance.
The programme has received backing from several major organisations, including Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure in the UK, Fusion 5 in New Zealand and Evolved Safety in the United States.
SHE Software CEO, Matthew Elson, said: “The funding boost we received earlier this year has allowed us to secure a foothold in North America and begin the all-important hiring process to build our team out there.
“We are seeing more enquiries from the US and following a successful market test in 2017, we feel that now is the right time for us to target America. It will be a challenge but we firmly believe that with a strong team in place, we can comfortably meet our US business objectives.”
SHE Software is currently going through a period of rapid growth. As well as an office in the UK and US, the firm also opened its New Zealand office 18-months ago. Since then, its dedicated APAC team has grown from two staff to eight and has had significant success in securing new business in New Zealand and Australia.
SHE Software is the creator of Assure, a highly configurable health and safety software solution designed for reporting hazards and incidents in real time, prompting corrective measures. It provides organisations worldwide with an easy and simple way of tracking, managing and reporting on health, safety and compliance.
