We strongly believe that the world is flat and have worked hard to make Zephyr a web-based company, capable of supporting customers regardless of geographic location
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 28, 2008
With increasing annual revenue from international sales, Zephyr Development Corporation, a privately held corporation based in Houston, Texas, is pleased to announce the formation of an international branch, Zephyr Development Corporation International, a wholly-owned subsidiary based in the UK.
"For many years, Zephyr has relied upon its UK based distributor (IntegraNET) and their associated business partners to sell and support our products throughout Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMEAI). Given the growing number of Zephyr customers in those countries, particularly in Europe, and their importance to Zephyr as a company, the time was right to open our own international operation," said Gregg Ledford, Zephyr President/CEO.
In addition to EMEAI marketing, sales and support responsibilities, Zephyr Development Corporation International will oversee responsibility for all new account development, including customer development in the U.S., Canada and countries of South America. The Zephyr U.S. corporate office will focus on product development, technical support, IT, HR and financial management.
"We strongly believe that the world is flat and have worked hard to make Zephyr a web-based company, capable of supporting customers regardless of geographic location," said Mr. Ledford. To ensure continuity and quality of customer service, Zephyr have transitioned and directly employed key personnel from IntegraNET.
"Working directly for Zephyr lets us provide a more direct customer service, by removing one link of the contact chain. Furthermore, we now offer an office 'open for business' from 09:00 - 23:00 GMT allowing us to provide more timely responses to enquiries from around the world and to offer support to our customers outside of their country's traditional office hours," said Russell Martin, Zephyr Vice President, Marketing and Sales.
Zephyr Development International is currently expanding its business partnerships to include both existing and new distributors in a number of major international markets. The new business partnership program will assist in offering customers a local point of contact in their language and should be complete by the end of 2009.
