Chief Revenue Officer at ActiveOps, Julian Harper, said, “The APAC region is a key strategic market for ActiveOps and operational management practise here tends to lead the world. Our long-term customers locally include NAB, ANZ, Westpac and AIA and we have a great team on the ground across the region. Onto this solid foundation, it is now time to further build our capabilities in and commitment to the region and drive further expansion into the market.”

As one of the world’s leading providers of management process automation solutions, ActiveOps has helped organisations improve how they measure and manage employee productivity, capacity and wellbeing by using robust data capture tools and intelligent automation software.
In 2020 the world paused and the future of operations became unclear for so many. ActiveOps guided its customers with high-quality data, giving operations leaders their ‘eyes and ears back’ while managing remote work.
Harper concluded, “As we have all moved through the ups and downs of the last 18 months, we’ve learned a lot, and now as we look ahead (knowing what we know now), we want to share that experience. Having Jim as our Regional Chair will only strengthen our focus and global vision across the company.”
