Cloud provider for the construction industry Procore, a cloud provider for the construction industry, has opened its first Asia Pacific office in Sydney’s CBD.

The company already has an established presence in Australia with more than 100 customers and 50,000 users. The new office is a direct response to local demand from customers.

The company, founded in 2002 and based in California, the company has seen ‘significant’ demand in Australia and New Zealand for its cloud-based solutions tailored specifically for the construction industry.

The new Sydney office will include sales, marketing, product implementation and product support professionals, which the company says will allow local customers to receive better service in their local time zones.

“We’re thrilled to be officially opening our first international office in Sydney,” comments Procore’s CEO, Tooey Courtemanche.

Courtemanche says the APAC expansion will allow them to address demand across the construction industry for mobile-first and cloud-based solutions.
