From Austria to APAC: Welcoming our new exclusive partner
Pimcore is expanding all over the world. As more and more people download Pimcore from various corners of the world, it is very important for us to have the global presence needed to support our customers. With our customer base growing in APAC, we knew we needed a trusted and reliable partner in the APAC region to serve the various needs of customers and help Pimcore expand.
We are very excited to welcome Brazn as our exclusive partner for APAC. Based in Singapore, Brazn is a technology company that helps customers with leading edge solutions for the most common problems. Their main objective is to help customers move on from outdated legacy systems to a new solution that will fit to today’s problems - and finding better, cheaper and more effective niche solutions that are best in the market today. They have experience with internet companies, startups, marketing agencies, and even financial institutions. That combined with their open-source approach and development experience gives them a unique perspective and strong competitive advantage. Having said that, we are honored to have them as a new partner.
Having had the opportunity to speak to Brazn’s CEO, Adrian Lee, earlier in the week, I was able to ask him about his Pimcore experience and the factors that lead him to partner with Pimcore. Below is a couple of experts from my discussion with him:
What Pimcore project are you most proud of and what did it entail?
Our individual team members had experience building an e-commerce portal for a telecommunications giant in Southeast Asia – and that was interesting and a huge undertaking as the Pimcore system had to integrate with a multitude of legacy backend systems using an Enterprise Service Bridge. It was a complex undertaking but Pimcore delivered on its flexibility and usability and we delivered a fully functioning e-commerce site with half the resources and half the time of competing efforts.
Another Brazn pimcore project that we are proud of was for Resorts World Sentosa – where we migrated their promotions database to a Pimcore based system for their promotional microsite for Indonesia and reduced the effort in publishing up to date promotional information for the client, and the client was super happy managing promotions by themselves.
What led you to partner with Pimcore?
We were appraising competing solutions and while other CMS (like Wordpress) were great for specific use cases, there were just no good solutions on an enterprise scale for large clients that we had. Pimcore met these needs perfectly and we started a conversation with Pimcore to deploy that to more and more clients. This naturally led us to look at a partnership model and Pimcore have been awesomely supportive thus far.
We would like to officially welcome Brazn to the Pimcore community! If you are a Pimcore user in APAC or simply want to contact Brazn for more information, you can do so by clicking here.
