‘BCSG Australia’ launches today, marking a key milestone in BCSG’s international expansion strategy.

BCSG has teamed up with Paul Wenck, one of the founders of Everyday Hero, to replicate its successful business model across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

BCSG already helps 150,000 small businesses around the world to survive and succeed with a range of innovative, cloud-based products and services. By partnering with leading financial institutions and other large corporates seeking to deepen their relationship with small businesses, BCSG has become an established technology provider in the UK and a successful new entrant in the US market.

Business Hub and CreditHQ are two examples of BCSG products successfully helping US small business customers to manage and grow their business, whilst simultaneously differentiating the proposition portfolio of Bank of Oklahoma and Wintrust Financial.  As the international demand for small business focused cloud software steadily grows, BCSG continually strives to supply new products through new channels in new markets.

Paul will use his wealth of experience gained from running small businesses and building strategic partnerships to drive profitable growth for BCSG initially in Australian and subsequently across New Zealand and South East Asia.

"I am passionate about bringing low-cost technology solutions to under-served sectors.  In my previous business, Everyday Hero, we were able to revolutionise the not-for-profit sector by delivering low-cost, cloud-based solutions to time and resource poor organisations, enabling them to focus on raising millions of dollars for charitable purposes.  I see a remarkable synergy between this and what BCSG does for small businesses; providing accessible, affordable technology to time-poor organisations, enabling them to focus on growing their business."

BCSG Managing Director John Davis comments: “Paul is a very welcome addition to the existing team of 80 employees here at BCSG, and his role demonstrates our commitment to providing innovative products and solutions to increasing volumes of small businesses worldwide.”
