SINGAPORE - August 24, 2016 - ServiceSource® (NASDAQ:SREV), the global leader in customer success and revenue-as-a-service solutions, today announced it has relocated its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore to a new, larger and more central location in Mapletree Business City 2. The company celebrated the grand opening of its new location with a ribbon-cutting, traditional Lion Dance ceremony, as well as a reception for company executives, employees, customers and local business leaders.
"Singapore has been an excellent hub for servicing our clients based in Asia, and with heightened market demand for ServiceSource’s solutions, we believe that there are exciting opportunities for our company, our employees, and our clients to continue to expand ServiceSource’s presence in the region," said Brian Delaney, Chief Operating Officer of ServiceSource. "In addition to being centrally located and more convenient for our employees, clients, and prospects, our new office gives us more capacity to expand as our business grows. The office is also equipped with our state-of-the-art Revenue Lifecycle Management technology platform, enabling us to accelerate results that drive better and faster revenue outcomes for our clients."
ServiceSource first opened its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore in 2010. The expansion comes on the heels of the recent grand opening of the company’s fourth Asia-Pacific office, located in Manila.
"The Asia-Pacific market is highly strategic to ServiceSource, and we are continuing to bolster our presence and business in the region, from moving to our larger office in Singapore, to growing our Japan team, to opening our new facility in Manila earlier this year," said Christopher M. Carrington, CEO of ServiceSource. "Through our ongoing investments in the region and a better ability to 'right-source' for our clients, we will be better able to continue driving revenue growth for multinational businesses, as well as deepen our relationships with local companies looking to grow globally."

We don’t have to worry about managing staff, building a human resources team and we make no additional investments into technology and infrastructure. More importantly, we are assured by ServiceSource’s high standards of professionalism, where pay is measured by performance."
