Washington, DC, United States, 2012/05/15 - Agreement builds on the infrastructure investment made for Metalogix office in the Philippines and live, global 24-hour support - StarAsiaTech.com / Metalogix.com.
Metalogix Software, the trusted provider of content lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange® and Cloud platforms, announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Star Asia Technologies to extend the previously announced relationship and solidify its position in the APAC market. The agreement builds on the infrastructure investment made in the state of the art facility in Bonifacio Global City, Philippines that enabled Metalogix to offer truly live, global 24-hour support through one worldwide support number and will serve as a sales hub for APAC to grow the business in the region.
“The agreement with Star Asia Technologies is a logical extension of our partnership as our corporate values are aligned to help customers enhance the use and performance of their content management platform,” said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “We are committed to expanding our range of products, customer reach and leadership in core markets such as APAC and this agreement will contribute to our accelerated growth in the region.”
With the distribution agreement, Metalogix will leverage Star Asia Technologies’ extensive experience in APAC to build out sales across industry verticals. Metalogix has a growing global customer base for its suite of high performing SharePoint solutions and Star Asia Technologies will assist Metalogix in capturing the fastest growing Microsoft content management region in APAC.
“We took the necessary care in building the infrastructure in APAC to meet our customers’ expanding needs, so this step is a logical follow-on activity for us to represent Metalogix solutions in Asia,” said Cliff Beek, President and CEO, Star Asia Technologies. “Now that we have ensured the highest level of support for customers in APAC and globally, the time is right to offer the Metalogix SharePoint solutions that manage, move, store, archive and protect business-critical content, whether on-premises or in the cloud.”
The Metalogix employees in the Philippines have been fully certified on Metalogix and Microsoft products and the facility will serve as the hub for the expansion of Metalogix sales and marketing in APAC.
“This is a great partnership with excellent timing to meet the increasing demand in APAC, a robust growth region for SharePoint adoption and deployment,” said Tovia Va’aelua, Business Group Lead, Microsoft Philippines. “Metalogix and Star Asia Technologies started their partnership the right way by focusing on support and enhancing the customer experience. We are excited to work with Metalogix as we further strengthen our partnership.”
