Y Soft looks to sustain growth, sets sights on Australia and NZ

12 Sep 16

Enterprise solutions firm Y Soft is looking to expand on recent growth in Australia and New Zealand, reporting a revenue boost of 30%.

Adam O’Neill, managing director, Y Soft Australia, says increasing opportunities coming from integrated printing and scanning solutions, as well as 3D print management solutions for education, has enabled the company to achieve strong growth in the region. 

“Y Soft’s growth in ANZ has been strong and we are currently looking at a revenue boost of 30% year-on-year,” says O’Neill.

“In the last 12 months we have brought on customers such as Rawson Homes and Public Transports of Victoria, in association with Konica Minolta Business Solutions Australia, which has contributed to this result,” he says.

The company has also opened a new, larger office in Sydney, as it looks to sustain growth in the area. 

“Y Soft is looking to sustain that growth over the next 12 months by providing enterprise workflow solutions to the local market that organisations need,” O’Neill says.

“We are also looking at expanding our sales and consultancy team to support this business goal.” 

The company has released two major offerings in the last six months including the latest version of its YSoft SafeQ Workflow Solutions Platform and the YSoft be3D eDee print management solution for education. 

YSoft SafeQ is an integrated print management and advanced document capture solution that automates workflows to significantly improve productivity and reduce costs while increasing document security for organisations. 

“Traditionally, organisations have had one product for print solutions and one for scanning solutions, which means there has been some overlap,” says O’Neill.

“This has resulted in organisations essentially paying twice for some features across both products, and making it more difficult for employees to have a seamless printing and scanning experience. The YSoft SafeQ Workflow Solutions Platform prevents paying twice.” He explains.

YSoft be3D eDee is designed specifically for the education sector. It is the first 3D printer with print management features, and a comprehensive accounting system to manage and recover 3D printing costs. 

“3D in education is a growing market with more and more educational institutions adopting fleets of 3D printers to help illustrate difficult concepts, enhance hands-on interactive learning, and drive class engagement,” says O’Neill.

“There is massive opportunity for Y Soft to provide educational institutions with a solution that is simple to manage and cost-effective.”
