UK Tech Company Chooses Irvine for Its Expansion to the US Market
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
The software developer of the Workspace Provisioning and Streaming Platform of the same name has incorporated a U.S. company and offices in Irvine.
Virtual workspace provider, oneclick AG has announced that it will be incorporating its business into the U.S. market following its success in delivering efficient, high performing and secure digital workspaces for its European customers. Since the U.S. is the single largest, and most influential market for any SaaS & Cloud product used in Enterprise IT, oneclick’s establishment in the U.S. market was a natural step.
After extensive research of several technology hubs from various U.S. states, oneclick decided to expand to the U.S. West Coast and established a partnership with the City of Irvine. The Greater Irvine Chamber will collaborate with the oneclick team as a local strategic partner, providing oneclick with the necessary data and network to support its transition to the West Coast with a base in Irvine to help grow and maintain a strong client base.
“We’re proud to welcome oneclick to the Irvine technology ecosystem. oneclick joins other global companies that are at the leading edge of innovation, and are contributing to job growth and economic activity in the region,” said Bryan Starr, president and CEO, Greater Irvine Chamber.
oneclick™ started its U.S. expansion activities January 2019 by joining the MergingMinds U.S. Market Entry softlanding program with a virtual office in Orlando, Florida. As a result of this relationship, oneclick™ was able to introduce the cloud solution to several Florida based corporations.
“We are looking forward to the collaboration with the MergingMinds team for business expansion from Florida into the U.S. East Coast and The City of Irvine in the U.S. West Coast,” says Dominik Birgelen, CEO of oneclick AG. Dieter Kondek, CEO of MergingMinds adds, “We see great potential for oneclick’s technology here in the U.S., which has been continually confirmed by positive feedback from our initial efforts.”
Responding to oneclick’s recent expansion to the U.S. market, techUK’s Head of International Trade, Simon Spier said, “We are delighted to have been part of the successful international expansion of one of our active members. oneclick is an innovative company that will undoubtedly find success in the U.S. and add value to the U.S. digital workspaces market. We look forward to supporting oneclick and our other members in their journeys for international growth.”
In addition to setting up the new office in California, oneclick will also expand its U.S. team. Spearheaded by Nehal Thakore, global director of Business Development, oneclick, the company will use a combination of channel partners and local sales executives to form a strong initial U.S. team.
“The U.S. is home to the world’s most substantial IT companies, large enough to sustain demand, provide growth opportunities and worldwide exposure, which we hope to achieve by establishing our visibility and credibility in the market,” said Thakore. "Making the decision to locate our West Coast office in Irvine was made easier because of the energy and opportunity of their innovation ecosystem and the accessibility to valuable resources extended by the Chamber’s Irvine Ready! gateway package partners.”
“The opportunity will contribute to the company’s future global recognition, as we intend to continue our expansion into Japan, New Zealand and Australia in the near future”, added Dominik Birgelen, founder, oneclick.
oneclick™ provides enterprises the ability to bridge the gap between local desktop applications and online device agnostic applications. Users will be able to access all their applications and data from anywhere, on any device through a workspace in the browser.
The oneclick™ Workspace Provisioning and Streaming Platform significantly simplifies the provision and distribution of software and promises efficiency gains, more mobility and security for companies. Importantly, oneclick™ has significantly invested in creating local infrastructure in Microsoft Azure data centers in both the West and East Coast of the U.S. to provide high-performance application streaming with lowest latency to local clients. Furthermore, it will be providing local support to businesses in the surrounding area to enhance local activity and community.
