Passenger, a leader in the online community technology and services industry, today announced its partnership with Asia Market Development, a data-based market information firm in mainland China.

China has quickly become one of the fastest growing markets for market research and data analysis companies. As the Chinese economy continues to expand, the demand for consumer data has grown both among multinational and domestic companies. The partnership will combine AMD’s market expertise with Passenger’s online community technologies to allow brands to connect with their customers in order to gain deeper insights and foster innovation across mainland China and Southeast Asia.

“We consider ourselves to be research –driven consultants that offer our clients a solution set that’s ‘custom tailored’ by strategic needs and believe Passenger is the ideal strategic partner for AMD with the demand for customized, online communities being as robust as it is in Greater China and Southeast Asia,” says Jeff Stewart, AMD Managing Director.

“We are thrilled to partner with AMD to meet the growing need for private online communities in China and Southeast Asia. With our partnership, we’ll bring unique, innovative and game-changing solutions to connect to their customers with consumers in new ways to capture consumer insights,” says Thomas Finkle, Passenger CEO and Member of the Board.
