Acquity Group Expands Into Canadian Market, Sets Up Shop In Ottawa
CHICAGO, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Acquity Group Limited (NYSE AMEX: AQ), a leading global Brand eCommerce™ and digital marketing company, announced today that it is expanding into the Canadian market and opening a new office in Ottawa, Ontario. The new location, Acquity Group's 11th office in North America, will support the company's continued growth throughout the Northwestern United States and Canada.
While Acquity Group already has established expertise in the global eCommerce marketplace, the new Canadian presence extends Acquity Group's capabilities in supporting B2C and B2B brands in North America. This announcement comes on the heels of two other recent office expansions in San Francisco and Seattle.
With online consumption in Canada expected to reach $51 billion by 2016, according to a report commissioned by Google, major North American retailers and B2B brands serving the Canadian market have engaged Acquity Group to design elegant yet functional experiences integrated across all digital channels, including web, mobile and social.
"With a booming technology sector and broad network of strategic partners located in Canada, establishing a physical presence in this market was a natural progression in our expansion," said Chris Dalton, President and CEO of Acquity Group's US operations.Acquity Group has long-standing relationships with Adobe Systems Incorporated, a company with a large Canadian presence, and hybris, a multichannel commerce and communication software provider with its North American headquarters in Montreal. In fact, in 2012, Acquity Group was recognized as Digital Marketing Regional Partner of the Year by Adobe and North American Partner of the Year by hybris. "With the announcement of an Adobe-hybris partnership this past March, it became critical to build a Canadian presence and leverage our triangular partnership," said Dalton. "We are excited to offer marketers and retailers a truly engaging buying process for every step – from brand engagement to browsing to check out."
