Dreamscape Networks CEO, Mark Evans talked to Computer Weekly this week about the company’s acquisition of Vodien Group, Singapore’s #1 hosting provider.
The acquisition is part of a regional expansion in South East Asia for Dreamscape Networks.
“The leadership team at Vodien has substantial knowledge of the local industry, with a strong track record of growth, and will be a great addition to our senior executive team,” said Dreamscape’s managing director and CEO Mark Evans. “The culture they have developed and led is a perfect fit for us.”
“By joining forces with this robust Asian hosting brand, we can leverage its current market position and strong customer awareness to immediately increase our footprint in the Southeast Asia region, without the need to establish our own Singapore hub infrastructure,” he said.
In an interview with Computer Weekly, Evans said the merger will enable the company to meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Southeast Asia that are going online via their smartphones for the first time.
“We will be educating them on getting their domain names and a professional e-mail address, so every time they send an email on their smartphones, they’re branding themselves as a credible business,” he said.
On the synergies that can be expected from the merger, Evans said there will be opportunities to cross-sell and up-sell products and services.
