Both companies brought to the new entity a strong shareholder base, established strength in B2B e-commerce, an entrepreneurial culture, as well as a rich heritage.

There is no doubt that eCommerce will continue to grow as a tool for increasing business efficiency. As more and more companies in Asia embrace the benefits of conducting business on the Internet, SESAMi is perfectly poised to be the preferred CSP in the market. Our transaction volume represents a substantial percentage of the B2B eCommerce transactions in Asia today, and we will continue to be Asia's leading CSP of collaborative commerce management services and eHub.

We are committed to solidifying that position, fortifying it with more services and creating new benefits for buyers and sellers. Because the eCommerce world is still in a nascent stage, it is impossible to predict how this market will develop, but we shall remain at the forefront of this development, always leading our customers to the services they seek.

Here are some of the signposts to watch for in the future:

  • More physical presence as we establish offices in all the major markets in Asia to better serve our growing customer base
  • More local language interfaces to make SESAMi easily accessible for businesses throughout Asia
  • More vertical marketplaces as we answer demands for more industry-specific solutions
  • Alliances with other eHubs to give our customers reach beyond Asia and to help international companies tap into the Asian market
  • Increasing transaction volumes
Our immediate focus is to keep our leadership position in Asia's eCommerce market. Our vision for tomorrow is to be Asia's Leading Electronics Transaction Hub.
