ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Merrill Corporation (www.merrillcorp.com), a global provider of secure content sharing, regulated communications and disclosure services, announced that it has launched a new data center in Hong Kong for Merrill DataSite. With this new DataSite launch, Merrill is the first premium virtual data room provider to establish a data center in Asia.
“The DataSite launch in Asia is a point of clear strategic and competitive differentiation for Merrill Corporation, and highly beneficial for our users,” said Nancy Yu, Managing Director for Merrill in APAC. “Local hosting has tremendous user benefits, including better and faster performance. The speed of transactions are enhanced, and in a business and region where time and speed is critical, this is a substantive advantage for our clients. Our dedicated team of project managers already speak over 14 languages, including Mandarin, Korean and Japanese. With our enhanced Asian-language platform, users can now navigate to the key information they need quickly and easily in their preferred language. The launch of the new data center is further evidence of the commitment that Merrill is making to the APAC region. We’re truly putting the needs of our customers first.”
Ms. Yu added, “We’re the first provider to be fully accredited with ISO/IEC 27001, the highest-level security certification. Combined with our innovative technology, unparalleled depth of subject and product expertise and now expanding geographic presence, we are strategically positioned to offer best-in-class sales and service for new and existing customers.”
“The launch of the data center in APAC is yet another tangible proof point of our global, yet localized strategic approach,” said Rusty Wiley, Merrill’s President and CEO. “APAC is a tremendous growth opportunity for Merrill, and we believe that an important and substantive step in further elevating our client value and business performance is increasing local expertise and infrastructure.”
The new data center provides numerous user benefits, including regional hosting, international compliance, utilization of new Asian language enhancements, site-wide text search and enhanced document processing and locally based service and sales directors, among other end-user benefits. The data center adds to Merrill’s suite of services in Asia, offering local sales, service, data hosting and application enhancements.
