As Saasu has grown over the past 12 years we have attracted customers from around the world. In the UK we had our first customer sign up in 2007 – long before many other cloud accounting applications were on the radar – and the number of users in this part of the world has steadily grown over the years.
Recently we made the decision to establish a physical presence in the northern hemisphere, setting up an office in London and appointing our first Saasuvian ‘on the ground’, UK Managing Director, Daljit Bahia.
In doing so, we are pleased to have greenlight status in UK Trade & Investment’s Global Entrepreneur Programme (GEP). Similar to Saasu’s belief in developing an ecosystem of partners and customers, the GEP is focused on creating an ecosystem where technology entrepreneurs can grow their global presence.
This move will see us roll out several UK-specific enhancements in the new year; including changes to the tax code report, UK pricing and HMRC electronic reporting.
Initially our current Australian-based global support team will continue to service UK customers, but as part of our commitment to this expansion, we will be adding local UK-based support staff in due course.
We look forward to sharing more about our UK-based expansion as we continue to grow and our plans start to come to fruition.
