Esker Continues Its International Development with New Subsidiary in Hong Kong
Sydney, Australia — September 5, 2018 — Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, announced today that it has opened a new subsidiary in Hong Kong, further strengthening the company’s international development strategy.
Esker is one of the few mid-sized French companies that has achieved international success — generating 61 percent of its sales outside of France and featuring 13 subsidiaries worldwide with more than 20 employee nationalities. This achievement is all the more exemplary in an industry where leading players are often American or Nordic.
Joining the existing Southeast Asian subsidiaries in Malaysia and Singapore, Esker’s Hong Kong office will meet several objectives, including:
- Provide an onsite presence for an increasing number of customers, particularly in the luxury sector, including Kering, Esquel, QNet, LVMH Horlogerie and Joaillerie
- Strengthen its global presence in Asia, with locations in Hong Kong and Singapore, the two markets with the most decision-making centers in Asia
To meet the needs of local customers, two consultants are already working in Esker’s new Hong Kong office, and the company will soon welcome new Chinese speaking employees.
“From the onset, Esker has looked to expand internationally. Today, our goal is to anticipate the emergence of new, high-growth markets,” said Jean-Michel Bérard, CEO at Esker. “Hong Kong, like Singapore, is a key location that will allow us to further our reach into the Asia-Pacific region. This new subsidiary will also allow us to approach the Chinese market more strategically.”
