Update on the Peak Performance Tour
London, 21 October 2014 - cloudBuy plc the world's leading transactional cloud platform, is pleased to provide an update as a result of the current Peak Performance tour of the Middle East and Asia Pacific Regions. The events, which were run in conjunction with UKTI positioned cloudBuy as a potential market leader in the following areas: Emirates, India, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
The events built upon the PR gained in the regions from the deals that have already been agreed in Australia, India and Hong Kong. There is a potential $5,000 per supplier, per annum for these agreed and announced deals. During the trip Ronald Duncan and his local team members have been closing additional opportunities in Australia, Singapore and in India with Synise and other prospects. The final event of the tour was yesterday in Dubai where there was good interest in the cloudBuy solution set.
The focus has been on prospects with large numbers of transactions and suppliers. The opportunities give access to an additional 20,000 suppliers and up to $2bn of transactional revenue for which the Company have agreed transaction fees ranging from 2%- 5%.
Ronald Duncan, Chairman and CIO of cloudBuy commented, "We have had genuine interest in the different geographies and all of the delegates and prospects that I have met with are facing similar challenges. There is real appetite for technology and especially in India and the Middle East the speed of market development is tangible, with a sense of excitement that the West hasn't felt since the dot.com boom. This trip has confirmed for me the opportunity available to the Company; we have appropriate mature technology and the potential to become a major player in these emerging markets."
