"The US market offers great potential for an alternative software provider with new and more modern technology and we expect many US players to review their current arrangements and demand a product that fully meets their needs. We are very well established in Europe with offices in Paris, Frankfurt and London. We also have an office in Sydney which services the Asia Pacific region. We are now a worldwide business which allows us to respond to our clients’ growing global needs and setting up an operation in the US was the ultimate next logical step in our development. We strongly believe in providing local support and service to our customers. Peter brings with him a wealth of experience and systems knowledge which will be very valuable in establishing Ubitrade’s presence in the United States."
