The Victorian Technology Minister, Gordon Rich-Phillips, joined at the opening of the new centre today by Zendesk's Chief Executive Officer, Mikkel Svane, said the opening of the centre builds on the establishment of Zendesk’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Victoria in September last year, and the state’s growing capabilities in the cloud.
Zendesk Asia Pacific Vice President and Managing Director, Michael Folmer Hansen, said the company was “thrilled with the response and speed at which organisations are implementing Zendesk, not only in Australia and New Zealand but the wider Asia Pacific region.”
“More organisations are beginning to understand the value of providing excellent customer service around the clock and for fast growing businesses, our solution scales quickly and easily.
Mr Rich-Phillips said Victoria’s ICT industry generated annual revenues of $30 billion and exports of $2.35 billion, and the Victorian Coalition Government was "committed to supporting the development and growth of innovative and competitive ICT companies like Zendesk."
“Last financial year, the Coalition Government helped to facilitate more than 1,300 jobs in the Victorian ICT sector,” the Minister concluded.
