The Germany-based remote connectivity solutions provider TeamViewer has opened its first office in Mumbai, India. The just inaugurated India office will act as a sales, marketing, and support hub and will provide remote connectivity solutions for the rapidly growing user base across the nation.
Indeed, it’s a crucial step aimed towards long-term growth in the South Asia region. The company currently holds offices in specific areas like US, Japan, Germany, Armenia, Australia, etc. and is also planning up for a site in China too.
“Opening an office in India is an integral part of our APAC growth ambitions with a strong focus on going multi-local to be closer to our existing customers and even better understand the market, client, and partner needs,” said Oliver Steil, CEO of TeamViewer, during the event.
For starters, TeamViewer is proprietary computer software that allows for remote control, desktop sharing, online meetings, web conferencing and file transfer between computers. Additionally, you can remotely access and control other devices and servers from anywhere.
As of now, the company claims of over 100 million installations of its software in India. However, only about 7,000 out of these numbers are paying customers. Hence, the company is looking forward to intensifying the count of paying customers in the country. And it is only possible when they establish a good local presence coupled with nifty marketing techniques.
The company is now focussing on to build a distributor network, and a partner network. Following the same, Krunal Patel is appointed as Head of Sales in India and South Asia as part of the company’s APAC growth initiative.
Krunal Patel, TeamViewer Head of Sales India and South Asia, mentioned “With the growth of India’s digital footprint, more and more industries in the country are developing and implementing IoT, AR, and AI innovation. TeamViewer offers best-in-class connectivity enabling our customers to securely tap into these megatrends“
According to the CEO, TeamViewer looks India as a serious market and is looking up for further expansion in the country. They might even end up setting a research and development centre here. In the meanwhile, understanding the market and investing for additional growth will be the priority.
