Octopus is opening a new regional office in Bangkok, Thailand. This comes after a period of remarkable growth in Asia, culminating with the installation of new and extensive newsroom facilities at MediaCorp in Singapore, to continue the lead in producing of television broadcast newsroom automation systems, Octopus is extending its international sales and technical support presence with the establishment of a regional office in the Thai capital, Bangkok. Staff on site will include Miro Rusko (Area Sales Manager – Asia) and Ermias Amare (Senior Support Engineer).
“This new resource confirms our strategy of getting closer to our customers, whether for pre-sales information and demonstrations, engineering and operational issues or post-sale advice,” Miro Rusko comments. The aim of this investment is to increase the quality of our existing 24/7 support capability. We will now be able to respond to customer requests within, or at least nearer, their national time zones rather than expecting them to think in terms of European time. Our focus will be on the entire south east Asia region, working faster and on a more personal basis. This will help particularly in the area of proof-of-concept tender fulfilment where documentation needs to be processed quickly.”
