ACT Conferencing is expanding its presence in the Asia Pacific region to include the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Plus Two. ACT, a provider of on-demand audio, web and video conferencing services, is extending its well established footprint in Asia to support channel partners operating in the 10 Southeast Asian countries that make up ASEAN, plus two additional East Asian nations: China and South Korea. This development is a direct result of increasing demand for ACT’s collaborative conferencing services.
To support its continued growth in the Asia Pacific region, ACT recently appointed Sunny Au as the channel manager of Asia. Au joined the ACT team with 10 years of experience in the conferencing industry, including several years as a sales director at Genesys Conferencing. Prior to that, he served as a sales manager at Premiere Conferencing.
“We are in an interesting position,” said Au. “While the global marketplace is experiencing more ebbs than flows, ACT is consistently seeing growth around the globe. This is because at a time when travel budgets are slashed and people are expected to do more with fewer resources, on-demand conferencing solutions are a must-have.”
One of ACT’s key partners, ReadySpace, agrees. ReadySpace is one of the fastest growing hosting solutions providers in Singapore. David Loke, executive director of ReadySpace, Singapore said, “ACT Conferencing has provided a fantastic reseller package that enables us to further leverage our managed services portfolio. This partnership allows us to more effectively tackle the SMB [small to medium businesses] space that is a growth area for conferencing services across South East Asia. We are looking forward to generating more business opportunities with ACT’s extensive support.”
In addition to expanding its partnerships in the Asia Pacific region, ACT is becoming more actively involved in local organizations. For example, the company is now a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, one of the largest American chambers outside the US, the largest international chamber in Hong Kong and the most dynamic and influential international business organization in the Asia-Pacific region. ACT participates in the Information Technology & Telecommunication committee which devises initiatives focused on conducting business in China and liaising with Chinese businesses and government organizations.
In addition, earlier this month ACT sponsored the IR Magazine Hong Kong and Taiwan Awards. Au presented the Best Investor Meetings award winner to Delta Electronic. As part of its sponsorship, ACT is hosting the webcast for this event.
“As we expand our services and our partnerships in this region, it is important to ACT that we also serve as a catalyst for change in the global marketplace,” said Trevor Lewis, director of sales and strategic alliances for the Asia Pacific region, ACT Conferencing.
