blur Group Signs First Alliance Partner in Asia

EXETER, United Kingdom, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — blur Group, the s-commerce company, today announces its first Global Alliance Partner in Asia;  Hong Kong based Compass Offices, the fastest-growing premium serviced offices in the region, houses thousands of businesses across Asia.

The deal will drive referrals from SMEs and business communities across the globe to both Compass Offices and blur Group and incorporates several joint marketing strategies.  The partnership brings together all the clients in the Compass Offices network with over 50,000 users of blur Group’s Global Services Exchange.

"We’re seeing extraordinary growth across Asia Pac and this looks set to continue with innovative partners like Compass," said Gerry Gross, Chief Commercial Officer at blur Group.  "The geography of the region means that companies here are often limited to local marketing or technology service providers if they want to avoid expensive travel costs.  The success of Compass’s rapidly expanding Asian footprint makes them a great partner to help us reach forward thinking organizations."

"Our business extends beyond serviced offices and meeting rooms to include ongoing support to businesses expanding overseas," says David Smalley, Partnerships Manager at Compass Offices.  "Sourcing vendors can be a lengthy process and we see blur’s platform as a great way to help clients work with external suppliers from all over the world, and not just in their new market."
