ViSenze announces strategic expansion into the US with new office and key hires

For immediate release, 25 November 2015

ViSenze, a leading machine intelligence company offering visual search and image recognition solutions, has established a presence in San Francisco and made key appointments on both the East and West coasts to lead sales and customer service efforts in North America.

With a customer portfolio of top ecommerce players like Flipkart, Lazada and Zalora, and large private online libraries like Patsnap, ViSenze is planning to capture the US market, attracted by its openness to innovation. US-based retailers and social media platforms have already started using visual search and image recognition technology, and the adoption is becoming more and more steep. With a robust fully automated and scalable technology, ViSenze is now also allocating human resources to build better relationships with customers and partners in the United States.

“The US market will be important for ViSenze as we step up our global SaaS product launches. We have already secured several US customers and partnerships, and will invest heavily to grow our support team and business development resources over the next 6 months.” said Oliver Tan, Co-Founder and CEO of ViSenze.

As of November 2015, ViSenze appointed Pamela Wallace, a professional with 17 years of experience in both North America and Asia, as Senior Director for Business Development in North America. In the past, she has led Business Development and Online Distribution for Travelocity, an online travel booking platform acquired by Expedia, among other professional stints.

I am thrilled to be leading the company’s efforts here in North America as we enter a period of rapid expansion.” said Pamela Wallace, Director Of Business Development for the United States at ViSenze.
