San Francisco, February 11, 2016: Click Labs, a global leader in powering technology platforms, is launching a new sales office in Johannesburg, South Africa on March 01, 2016. The new office, to be called Click Labs Africa, will be well placed to serve a large and emerging African market, backed by increasing smartphone penetration, heightened venture capital interest and African centric mobile payment and mapping solutions. The expansion is in line with the company’s vision to have presence in 30 countries across the world in next five years and adds to its offices in Seattle, Birmingham and Brisbane opened in the last 12 months.
With more than five years of investment in creating an engineering infrastructure to help build enterprise grade solutions, Click Labs has created significant IP – processes and technology – that helps it present value propositions in specific domains. In addition, the company’s Juggernaut platform built specifically for On-Demand platforms is seeing really good reception in Africa. Click Labs has taken a small equity position in Nurses On call, a Durban based company, and is building a technology platform that has the potential of conservatively increasing the existing 100 million Rand business three times over the next two years.
The on-demand economy offers South Africa an opportunity to create new employment opportunities to stimulate economic growth and help curb potential social unrest. Click Labs Africa has a highly skilled team positioned to capture the on-demand market. The team’s expertise in digital/mobile strategy, product commercialisation, business modeling and development as well as marketing complemented by world class technology offers African customers a winning solution. Click Labs Africa has already identified use cases for a variety of sectors and will be closing some deals soon.
Parag Jain, CEO, Click Labs, commented “This launch will enable Click Labs to establish a touchpoint in the South African market, where the startup scene is beginning to show real promise. As investor confidence increases in Africa’s most advanced economy, there are going to be many opportunities to make a real impact especially considering the lack of development talent in Africa in general.”
