Indian learning solutions company opens office in Australia

Tags: News
An Indian education and training company has opened its Australian headquarters here as part of its expansion plan in the region.

The Bangalore-based learning solutions provider Dexler Information Solutions was officially opened by Victoria Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips on Friday.

Dexler Education (Australia) is expected to create 25 new skilled jobs in Melbourne following its acquisition early this year of Online Learning Australia (OLLA), whose clients include AMP, ANZ, BHP Billiton, Bluescope Steel, Coles, Myer, NAB, Target, Telstra and Westpac, a statement issued by state premier office said.

Dexler was established in Bangalore in 2001 as an education and training company and now has operations across India, Singapore and the US.

Dexler's e-learning expansion into Australia reflects worldwide growth in the sector that is expected to be worth 51 billion dollars by 2016. The Asia Pacific region, including Australia, is showing the highest growth rate at 17.3 percent.

Rich-Phillips said the Victorian Government was working hard to make the Australian state a leading destination for international technology companies that are considering expansion into the Asia Pacific region.

"Through the 85 million dollar Victoria's Technology Plan for the Future – ICT and the Napthine Government's recently released ICT Workforce Development Plan, we are supporting the continuing growth, development and global competitiveness of Victoria's ICT businesses and workforce," Rich-Phillips said.

"Our focus is on strengthening Victoria's technology capabilities and attracting more investment, which has been a success despite challenging global economic conditions," he said.

Dexler's expansion into Melbourne is the latest in a string of new technology investments in Victoria since the beginning of 2014.

India's Cyient (formerly Infotech Enterprises) and Servion Global Solutions and US companies Hightail, TinTri and Equinix have all announced major new multi-million dollar ICT operations in Victoria that will create more high-skilled jobs.

"Since November 2010, the Coalition Government has helped facilitate over 1 billion dollar in new technology-related investment, creating 4,700 jobs," Rich-Phillips said.

"The Napthine Government has been working closely with Dexler to ensure it chose Melbourne as its Australian launching pad and we will continue to do so as it plans for future investment and growth in Australia," he said.
