TLM Technologies is expanding into the United States, after recruiting three overseas personnel and imminent plans to open an office in Colorado.
Among the recruits is Michael Johnson, former director of sales at well-known pole sign software developer, Price Advantage. Johnson will be vice president of sales for TLM’s presence stateside. The US team also includes a new technical expert and software developer.
Lee Papper, CEO of TLM Technologies, said: “We already had links into the US market through several of our partners, however in the last year the number of enquiries we have received about our technology solutions has really ramped up.
“We were beginning to spend so much time travelling backwards and forwards to keep business moving, it was only logical we take the next step to open up a presence in the US and look to penetrate the market in a more organised way.”
Papper said the US convenience and fuel market presents a considerable opportunity for a technology solutions provider like TLM. He explained: “While we’re fully aware the market has some well-known incumbents; the US market is still suffering with many of same challenges we have seen in the UK, as major software companies have withdrawn products and support.
“If we can capture just a small fraction of this market, it will make a massive material difference to our business and more than pay back on the investments we are making.”
TLM intends to localise its evolution suite of software products for the US market. The suite, which includes solutions for EPOS, back office and head office systems, will begin to be modified to accommodate the nuances of the operations driving the businesses of US fuel and convenience retailers.
