Auckland, NZ – March 25, 2011 – Right Connect, Right Hemisphere’s distribution partner for Asia Pacific, today announced the opening of a local sales and support office in South Korea.
Right Connect was established in October 2009 as Right Hemisphere’s Asia Pacific distribution partner for the Deep Exploration software package. Since then Right Connect has developed a network of over 20 resellers in 6 countries selling Right Hemisphere’s products to a growing customer base. Having local staff in South Korea will enable Right Connect to better support resellers in developing the market for Right Hemisphere software across the Asia Pacific region and especially in Korea.
“From an early stage on Right Connect was aware of the significant potential of the Korean market” says Zlatko Staka, CEO of Right Connect. “Korean companies are known to adopt the latest technology quickly to gain an advantage over their global competition. Therefore, it is not surprising that the interest in Right Hemisphere’s leading edge technology has been particularly high in Korea. Opening a local office will help us to better support existing resellers as well as develop new partnerships to satisfy this demand”.
The Korea Office will be led by Soo Jin Park, who has over 18 years of experience in the CAD/CAE/PLM market in Korea and has held senior positions with some of the industry’s leading companies, including PTC. Right Connect is very pleased to have such an experienced and highly skilled person on board to develop the markets in Korea and other Asian countries.
“Having been aware of the innovative software Right Hemisphere is developing for several years it is very exciting to now be part of the team that will bring this technology to the Korean market”, says Soo Jin Park. “It is great to have the opportunity to leverage my contacts, skills and experience to introduce Right Hemisphere to Korean companies to help them get to the next level of efficiency and to continue to compete successfully on the global scale.“
Right Hemisphere’s software and solutions help Global 1,000 manufacturers to optimize their mission critical business processes in engineering, manufacturing, service and support, and sales and marketing. Right Hemisphere’s customer base includes many of the world’s most renowned manufacturing companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Joy Mining, Nike, Sikorsky and many others.
“Right Connect has been instrumental in successfully bringing our solutions to the greater Asia Pacific market and we are pleased to see this expansion continue,” says Mark Thomas, President and Founder of Right Hemisphere. “The Korean manufacturing market aligns nicely with our current client portfolio in aerospace, automotive and heavy manufacturing industries. Our success in these markets will prove valuable matching Right Hemisphere’s innovative technology with the vibrant and forward thinking manufacturers in Korea. Right Connect brings the support and experience to ensure that the match is a very successful one.”
Opening a local office in Korea is the first step in Right Connect’s expansion plan for Asia Pacific. As a part of their World Class Channel, Right Connect is planning to open further local offices in countries where the market demand is equally high as it is in Korea.
