ExactTarget Launches Singapore Office to Serve Digital Marketers Across Asia Pacific
Office Extends ExactTarget's Regional Strength with Operations in Singapore and Australia
INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global cross-channel digital marketing leader ExactTarget (NYS: ET) launched its Singapore office today, expanding the company's international strength across Asia Pacific.
The office extends ExactTarget's ability to bring its suite of email, mobile, social media, Web, data management and marketing automation applications to marketers throughout the region, building on the company's regional presence in Australia.
"Working closely with our team and clients throughout the region, it is clear that there is tremendous opportunity in Singapore and across Asia Pacific to transform business through digital marketing," said Scott Dorsey, chairman and chief executive officer of ExactTarget. "By continuing to bring our expertise and passion for digital marketing to new markets, we are providing the leadership and technology businesses need to achieve new levels of success by connecting with their customers across email, mobile, social media and the Web."
In a Sept. 2012 report, the Broadband Commission for Digital Development noted, "Singaporeans have shown a strong appetite for smartphones, according to surveys which rank Singapore one of the world's highest in terms of smartphone penetration." The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore estimated mobile phone penetration was more than 150 percent in 2012.
"Smartphones are fueling an unprecedented level of hyper-connectivity, making it seamless for consumers to move between email, SMS, apps, social media and the web from a single device," said Scott McCorkle, ExactTarget's president of technology and strategy. "ExactTarget's suite of products provides the solution marketers need to optimize these interactions with data-driven, permission-based digital marketing that builds customer loyalty and drives sales."
ExactTarget currently powers digital marketing programs for more than 6,000 clients worldwide and many of Asia Pacific's leading brands, including Haymarket, Fairfax Media and David Jones.
The announcement of ExactTarget's new Singapore office follows the company's 2012 launch of international operations in France, Germany and Sweden. ExactTarget's global operations now include offices in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Singapore and Sweden. ExactTarget's U.S. operations include offices in Atlanta, Indianapolis, New York City, San Francisco and Seattle.
