Accredify, Asia Pacific’s leading verification solutions provider, today announced the opening of its first overseas office located in Sydney, Australia as part of its international expansion strategy. This will be the company’s first office beyond its headquarters located in Singapore.
The decision to set up a physical office in Australia was motivated by the need to build and strengthen the company’s relationships with partners and clients in the region. Accredify’s Australian office will also serve as its ANZ headquarters to invest in the regional market and to build a team of local talents to support the firm’s growth.
“The decision to expand into Australia was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Quah Zheng Wei, CEO and Co-founder, Accredify, “Australia is actively focusing on building their digital economy, whether it be developing digital identities for their citizens or encouraging industries to adopt emerging technologies to digitalise their operations. It is hence critical that we meet clients where they live to serve them to the best of our ability.”
The move was also driven by the Australian government’s announcement of its Digital Economy Strategy, where it aims to invest more in emerging technologies such as blockchain as well as expanding the use of its Digital Identity System.
