Mountain View, CA, June 19th, 2012 – MATRIXX Software today announces it has expanded its operations into the Asian marketplace with the appointment of John Kara, a highly experienced communications executive, to lead its Asia Pacific operations. MATRIXX Software has also formed a strategic partnership with Atos, a systems integrator with an impressive presence in the Asia Pacific (APAC) market.
The appointment of John Kara to head the APAC operations opens up new geographical territory, particularly in Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia and Malaysia - all markets which are experiencing explosive growth. Before joining MATRIXX Software, John Kara successfully ran Logica's consulting business in Japan, and then built Logica's systems integration business throughout the APAC region. He then served as Managing Director of LHS' business in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. More recently, John was Head of OSS/BSS for Ericsson in South East Asia.
The Atos partnership will significantly expand MATRIXX Software's reach into the Asian marketplace by utilizing Atos' extensive organizational coverage across Asia and its Telco centers of expertise in Malaysia and India. Atos is also well positioned to implement and support MATRIXX Software solutions across the APAC region.
"We're pleased to have a seasoned executive like John Kara to head our operational expansion into Asia," said Matt Taylor, VP of Global Sales. "The Asian marketplace is experiencing rapid growth of pre-paid subscribers and data services. Our technology and vision resonate with Communications Service Providers in the region who have lost confidence in the ability of current commercial billing systems to keep pace with the growth."
