(PRWEB UK) 2 September 2012
PPCnSEO has been listed amongst the finalists for Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia award – a prestigious list honouring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from anywhere between the Middle East to the Pacific Ocean.
Red Herring - a global media company with a particular focus on business and technology – annually select the leading 100 business ventures from a choice of thousands across Asia, picking out those with excellent financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, strategy execution and integration into their respective industries.
PPCnSEO was selected due to the development and success of their flagship product, eCoach Manager. An innovative web-based transport booking system, eCoach Manager enables vehicle hire companies to coordinate customers and assets effortlessly. It automatically handles every aspect of management, from customer enquiries to driver allocation and job completion.
“I am very proud that PPCnSEO has been nominated for the prestigious Red Herring award,” said Mark Bond, the company’s CEO. “I believe this is recognition for the ethos of the company and the people in it. We spend a lot of our time on internal training, from learning Thai and English to cross-departmental training as well as sending our staff on external courses and bringing in experts when needed. We run a course to bring on fresh graduates and plan to extend this in the future. We believe we are innovative and customer-focused and bring a range of design, marketing and emerging technologies together to give our customers the edge that is required in today's competitive markets.
“I would like to thank the Thai Board of Investment, who last year granted us a licence to bring in foreign staff and enabled us to develop a strong, mixed team. I would like to thank the City of Pattaya and the Mayor’s office and the Mayor, Mr Itthiphol Kunplome, who graciously attended our launch party and offered great words of support. Most of all, I would like to thank all of our 35 staff who, in a very short time, have built one of the region’s leading IT and digital marketing teams.”
PPCnSEO’s recent innovations include a mobile website simulator, improved mobile website design, extensive social media integration, greater use of QR codes and other recent mobile technologies and, of course, the revolutionary eCoach Manager software. Continuous improvements and updates are being made to existing products while new ideas are always under development.
While Red Herring assesses potential winners on their track record and company standing as well as recent achievements, PPCnSEO has only been in operation for a little over a year, demonstrating extraordinary growth in that time.
“This year was very rewarding,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. PPCnSEO shows great promise therefore deserves to be among the finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Asia. We know that the 2012 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.”
Now in a shortlist of nearly 200 companies from Lebanon to Japan, finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Asia Forum in Hong Kong from September 10-12, 2012. The Top 100 will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of September 12.
