INFOBIP OPENS BEIJING OFFICE LONDON, UK, BEIJING, PRC, 20 September 2016 – Cloud communications platform Infobip announced today the opening of its office in Beijing, following its Shenzhen office opened in December 2015.
Establishing operations in Beijing aims to improve the company’s capacity to serve the bustling local tech scene, especially startups and online firms seeking to expand outside mainland China.
– Many internet and tech companies based in Beijing seek to acquire users overseas. For those companies, Infobip is a perfect technology partner. By connecting to our platform over an API or web interface, they can easily launch and scale different communications and security services based around mobile phones. Nowadays, mobile phones are proving to be critical in user authentication, conversion and retention, especially for social networks, internet services, e-commerce sites and mobile apps, whose success largely depends on the ability to onboard and retain millions (or billions!) of users – potentially from anywhere in the world. These businesses are demonstrating a growing demand for reliable, globally-reaching services like SMS and voice 2-factor authentication, mobile number validation, notifications and omni-channel campaigns, explains Matija Razem, VP Business Development at Infobip.
All the services boast international reach, superb uptimes and engineering-grade tech support.
In the last 12 months, Infobip invested over EUR 5 million in building operations in China, with the investment planned to continue throughout 2017 and 2018. The company already serves a number of Chinese internet and tech giants, as well as small and medium companies.
– The Beijing office will further promote our “glocal” approach, which combines global expertise with strong local presence. In China, you can’t really say you’re truly local, until you have built firm operations close to your clients and partners. We’re honored to be part of the country’s amazing tech ecosystem, which is rapidly shaping itself into one of the world’s principal IT centers, says Silvio Kutic, Infobip founder and CEO. The company’s local operations in APAC, started in 2010, today span Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, China, Taiwan, Japan, and Indonesia, with clients in the enterprise, banking, OTT, mobile and tech segments.
Infobip’s in-house developed cloud communications platform allows companies and developers to reach 6 billion mobile devices connected to over 800 telecoms networks. Operating 48 offices in 40+ countries, Infobip innovates at the intersection of internet and telecoms technologies, creating new ways and opportunities for businesses and their end users to interact over mobile devices. www.infobip.com, www.infobip-china.cn.
