LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2012) - ServiceSource® (NASDAQ: SREV), the global leader in Service Revenue Management, today announced plans to significantly expand its operations in Liverpool. The move is part of its strategy to grow its EMEA business and the company is looking to create 100 plus jobs by the end of this year.
ServiceSource helps technology companies maximise the potential of their recurring service revenue streams, increasing not only customer satisfaction and loyalty, but also additional revenue streams that can be utilised for both innovation and growth. Its cloud-based solution combines a range of applications with a dedicated sales team and insight from over ten years of renewals data, benchmarks and best practices across the technology industry. ServiceSource has a successful and proven track record of increasing customers' recurring revenue by an average of 15% in a span of 12 months.
To meet the needs of its global customer base and address the significant EMEA service revenue management market, ServiceSource opened its Liverpool sales centre in November 2010, starting with 20 employees. Since then the company has expanded its office. In less than two years the employee base has increased by almost 1,000 per cent.
The Liverpool office is the company's sixth global sales centre. Liverpool was selected as the ideal location as it offers state of the art business infrastructure, on-going city development and multi-lingual graduates all of which are imperative for ServiceSource's business. Staff at the Liverpool office are extensively trained to be high performing tech sales professionals servicing EMEA customers that are looking to maximise recurring revenues and add value to their business.
"ServiceSource has experienced staggering growth over the last five years -- roughly 35 per cent per year globally. We have an aggressive recruitment strategy and offer diverse career development opportunities, advanced sales training and the opportunity to work with some of the world's most successful brands," said Martin Moran, SVP and general manager, EMEA, ServiceSource International.
Further added Mr Moran, "Liverpool is a vibrant city with a developed infrastructure and access to a highly-educated talent pool. We are committed to bolstering the advantages Liverpool has to offer businesses and make it a city of 'sales excellence'. We are thrilled to tap into this invaluable resource and bring the right skills on board for the next stage in ServiceSource's European growth plans."
The ServiceSource Liverpool sales centre serves a range of European technology clients including BlueCoat, NetApp, Progress Software and Riverbed Technology amongst others. The office is the key hub for new business in EMEA. Of the 165 employees at the Liverpool office, 70% of the staff is bilingual and 20 different languages are spoken across the office to service clients across the EMEA region.
