WEARABLE technology company Plantronics has opened a representative office in Jakarta, which will oversee and support its growing pool of channel partners and customers in Indonesia.
The population for Indonesia in 2014 is estimated at 253 million, making it the fourth most populous country on earth behind China, India and the United States, Plantronics said in a statement.
With a growing economy, IT spending in Indonesia is predicted to continue a double-digit year-on-year growth to reach US$16.5 billion by the end of 2014, according to IDC.
“Indonesia is a robust economy with strong domestic consumption to drive the growth of the contact centre market,” said Susan Hansen, Plantronics vice president of sales and marketing, Asia Pacific and Middle East.
“As such, we at Plantronics believe it is imperative that we establish a physical presence in Indonesia, to lend dedicated expertise and experience to support our growing channel partners throughout Indonesia, and to serve the ever-growing corporate customers adopting our technology to fuel their business and communications growth,” she added.
Plantronics develops its expansion through its channel partners, serving both businesses and consumers in Indonesia. The new representative office in Jakarta will gain technical, customer service, and leadership support from Plantronics' South-East Asian team currently present in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Local Indonesian customers will benefit from an efficient local supply chain from Plantronics' local channel partners, the company claimed.
