Impero Software, the remote monitoring and management software specialist, has opened an office in Austin, Texas, as it continues its expansion in the US market and overseas.

The Texas site will complement its existing operations in America which already accounts for around one-fifth of the company’s revenues.

Impero chief executive Richard Fuller said: “Not only is Austin the fastest growing city in the United States, but it is also a hub for ambitious, high-growth EdTech firms like ourselves.

“Our expansion in the United States is a major part of our global growth strategy for the business and we have an established and growing customer base in Texas. Couple that with the city’s reputation as an EdTech centre and we have an ideal base.”

The education software business was bought for £27.5m last summer in a deal that showed a trebling of its value just three years after a management buyout.

Its software consolidates a range of powerful classroom, network and device management features enabling schools and colleges to reduce costs and improve both staff and student productivity.

Its solutions are accessed by over 1.5m devices in 90 countries, in 1,400 UK high schools and in 500 US districts.

“We have a proud culture of innovation and constant improvement at Impero,” added Fuller. “In order to do this, we are always seeking to invest in our people, our research and our systems. The new Austin office is testimony to this and we look forward to driving our United States growth from this fantastic location.”
