Jack Loo | Oct. 24, 2012
The new hub contains corporate and sales functions, a training centre as well as a solutions showcase facility.

FalconStor Software has set up its Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Singapore.

"Our investment in the Singapore office demonstrates our commitment to our regional channel partners, to their customers and to the Asia Pacific business community at large," said Jim McNiel, president and CEO of FalconStor Software. The vendor, who specialises in disk-based data protection, has presences in locations such as Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China and Hong Kong.

The new Singapore headquarters, led by Suresh Nair, general manager and vice president of sales and marketing of Asia Pacific, will coordinate and support FalconStor's initiatives in the region.

It also offers comprehensive local and regional sales support and resources. There is a sales operations centre that houses the local sales team and technology experts as well as regional financial, human resources and IT support functions.

The headquarters offers training facilities for partners to upgrade their skill set to serve their customers, and there is a solutions centre for partners to demonstrate products and to stage complex solution designs for customers.

"The new Singapore office significantly enhances our sales operations in Asia Pacific," said Nair. "In addition to our core set of sales support services, the office provides customers the ability to test our solutions before they make a buying decision. Ultimately, our active presence in Singapore will help us build stronger relationships with our partners and customers, which will strengthen our leadership in the region."
