Leeds-based mobile workforce tech firm BigChange has revealed its plan for European expansion.

The company’s technology, which allows businesses to go paperless, is trusted by the likes of Silent Night, Sheffield City Council, Transport for London and John Deere.

The company has established a subsidiary business in France – BigChange France - to lead a move into Europe, and has recruited a reseller partner for a move into Cyprus and Greece.

It has established its sales and marketing office in Paris and a dedicated customer support facility in Marseille.

“We want to make BigChange a £100 million business and that means accelerating our international expansion efforts,” said Martin Port, founder and CEO of BigChange.

Executive Vice President for Europe, Frederic Dupeyron, joined the company in January.

“By moving into France and establishing a partnership to cover Cyprus and Greece we are opening up a number of new markets, putting in place excellent sales and customer support people to delight our customers, and insulating the business from the effects of a potential no deal Brexit.”

Frederic Dupeyron, Executive Vice President for Europe at BigChange added: “Organisations worldwide are being challenged to improve service, become more efficient and eliminate paperwork and manual processes from their operations. Opening offices in France is a significant first step in our international expansion plans.

“Establishing a presence here means we can better serve customers and drive faster expansion for BigChange in mainland Europe.”
