The world leading travel media provider DMD has opened a new business development resource in Singapore.
The move comes in light of the growing importance of Asia Pacific to its expanding global operation, to provide a central point of focus for its ongoing sales and service management activities in the region.
Singapore based DMD Asia Pacific joins long established operations in Hong Kong and Bangkok as well as the comparatively recent Sydney Australia office to complete a dedicated service proposition to travel operators and publishers across the region.
No fewer than 8 of the current list of 10 Skytrax™ 5-star airlines trust the DMD global service – including ANA, Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Eva Air, Hainan Airlines and Singapore Airlines regionally – and the company delivers more newspapers and magazines to more passengers at more airports worldwide than any other provider.
“In our core global business we offer airlines, airports and train operators access to the very best newspapers, magazines and digital content”, says DMD’s newly appointed business development manager for Asia, Jenn Tan. “We use local knowledge and global reach to connect our customers wherever they are based, and that most certainly includes the economic titans of Southeast Asia.”
A seasoned aviation sector veteran, Jenn Tan joins DMD with an industry résumé from OAG, Innovata and FlightStats, and a deep knowledge of airline trends across Asia.
“Building client relationships and partnering with them to deliver win-win outcomes are what I enjoy most in the BDM role”, Tan notes, “and I’m really excited at the prospect and doing that for DMD – especially working with their fantastic new suite of digital products!”
One of her first forays in the new role is to join DMD Managing Director Paul Rayson and Greater China specialist Eva Tan later this month at Aviation Festival Asia in her native Singapore.
“At AFA we’re talking not only about the physical newspaper and magazine provision that so many regional carriers enjoy, but also those superb new digital solutions”, says Tan.
“Cathay Pacific already uses DMD digital publications services and Air Mauritius recently became the launch customer for our flagship DMD eReader product. We’ll be spreading the word to other world-class carriers in Singapore about we can help make their digital delivery a 5-star experience too.”
With unrivalled publisher relationships worldwide, DMD can secure the right content set for any airline evolving its local print offers into one consistent digital or mixed media strategy – helping it grow a unique digital offer on the ground and in the air. The significant benefits of its digital services range from brand differentiation and customer satisfaction ratings, to digital and green agenda wins too.
The DMD eReader solution has the great advantage of seamlessly integrating into an airline’s proprietary customer app to deliver content before departure or after arrival. It is just as effective as an airside platform too, using fixed onsite WiFi or portable, powerful DMD Media Cube servers where that service might be weak, inconsistent or simply reserved for other online activities.
The DMD Asia Pacific team are available for meetings with airlines, airport operators and media content providers throughout the event on 27 and 28 February at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.
