Velsoft Opens New Office in Johannesburg, South Africa

New Glasgow, NS – 14 May 2013 - Velsoft, an online training content and technology company in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, has officially expanded its global footprint with the announcement of a new office in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

With over 10,000 customers in 162 countries, the company’s latest move reinforces the focus and momentum seen over the last 18 months. With three major contracts recently awarded, Velsoft has emerged as a key player in the Nova Scotia export industry. 

South Africa has become our fourth largest market and it continues to grow. The country is experiencing great demand for education, and the market in neighbouring countries is booming. Opening an office there, to expand our presence with feet on the ground, made perfect sense,” says Jim Fitt, Founder and CEO of Velsoft. 

Fitt added, “We have a fine partnership with Young & Able, a dynamic and up-and-coming professional development team in Johannesburg that shares our vision. On my last visit to South Africa, I was reminded of some of the shared values with our office in rural Nova Scotia. The passion for education, the determination to succeed and the pride in the place that we live, strongly influences everything we do as an organization.”
