Avontus Software has appointed, Andrew Smith as vice-president of operations. This move will allow Avontus to continue to deliver the finest pre- and post-sales support.
Mr Smith joined Avontus in 2014 and in his new role becomes responsible for the operational and customer-facing areas of the business globally. Mr Smith said: “Ensuring our customers have the best user experience from sale to support is critical, and as we expand our software offering and market presence it is essential that we remain customer-focused.”

Andrew has extensive experience in project, site, contract, and branch management, and he is an active member of scaffolding associations in both North America and Europe.
Brian Webb, chief executive and founder of Avontus said: “First and foremost, Avontus is focused on the customer.

Andrew is well-known and well-liked in the industry and we are fortunate to have him as part of our team.”
With the new releases of Scaffold Viewer and Scaffold Designer expected in the coming weeks, augmented reality is being added to the already successful suite of scaffold design and visualization tools, which saw the addition of virtual reality in 2017.
“Being a technology partner for our customers will continue to be a core value as we expand our sales and support teams,” added Smith, “and ensuring that we have a scalable infrastructure in place will be critical to our customer success moving forward.”
