Allocate Software, a provider of Defence, Maritime and Healthcare complex workforce and organisational optimisation software, has opened a new office in Canberra, Australia to support the company’s continued growth in its defence and maritime business. Allocate’s software solutions include DefenceSuite and OffshoreSuite.  With the opening of the new premises at the end of September 2016, Allocate has increased company resources in the region as a result of relocation of its defence and maritime staff from Sydney and the recruitment of additional personnel in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).

Andrew Carwardine, General Manager Worldwide Defence & Maritime at Allocate Software said, “The new office reinforces Allocate’s long-standing presence on the Australian continent.  Canberra is a great location for our specialists to support a number of high-profile customers, including the Australian Defence Force which is based in the city. In 2017 we have ambitious plans to address the needs of our southern region user community and the growing demand for our solutions in the area.”

The Royal Australian Air Force will be hosting a two-day Advanced Capability Awareness conference on optimising workforce and programme management on 14-16 November 2016 in the city. Allocate is the main sponsor of the event as part of its commitment to the region.

Deepak Poria Regional Manager, Southern Region, Defence and Maritime, Allocate Software concluded, “As a result of our worldwide success we are being approached by an increasing number of organisations who are looking to take advantage of our proven track record to help them tackle the daily challenges of complicated projects in highly competitive, often dangerous industries, with fast and efficient complex project and workforce optimisation strategies.  With this new office dedicated to serving our defence and maritime customers, we look forward to sharing our in-depth industry knowledge, expertise and innovative solutions to help solve their toughest problems and to drive their businesses forward.”
