International valuation company Opteon has continued rolling out its new integrated business model, with the completed integration of a further five franchises into the amalgamated Opteon organisation.
As of 20 October 2017, Far North Queensland, North Queensland, South Coast NSW, Central West NSW and Western NSW franchises have transitioned into the integrated Opteon business.
In March, Opteon announced a new integrated business model, where Opteon member companies contributing 78% of the group’s revenue combined to form one single business entity, while the remaining member companies agreed on terms for a new franchise agreement.
Opteon Chief Executive Officer, Chris Knight said the evolving business model and continued franchisee integration strengthened Opteon’s position in the market.
“Franchisee integration is one piece of our continuing growth plan, and a big part of our customer experience strategy. Being one, united Opteon allows us to respond to national client demands more swiftly and with greater efficiency.
“We will now be able to provide our national and international clients with a better, more consistent experience, across both regional and metropolitan Australia and New Zealand.
“It’s also a strong move for our employees. Integration allows us to better take advantage of group-wide opportunities to invest in our people, systems and technology.”, Mr. Knight said.
“I welcome the five franchises and their impressive local knowledge and expertise into the integrated Opteon business, and look forward to working together to build a strong, successful Opteon.”
