Successful UK tech start-up goes global

Constant Commerce – the technology which makes content shoppable – opens offices in San Francisco and Singapore.

30 September 2014: Constant Commerce today announced it is opening offices in San Francisco and Singapore to reflect international demand for its innovative technologies and the company’s explosive growth in the last year.

Connecting brands, publishers and retailers, Constant Commerce’s technology has become the global standard for making the everyday products featured in all types of lifestyle content shoppable. The technology makes it possible for consumers to shop for products directly from content or advertising, whether it’s online, on mobile or in print. When a shopper clicks a ‘buy’ button the technology adds that product to a shopper’s online basket at any mainstream retailer in the UK, US or Australia.

Constant Commerce’s current customer list boasts major brands such as Unilever and Jamie Oliver, publishers such BBC World Wide, and ten of the world’s biggest retailers, including Walmart and Tesco. More than a third of the company’s business now comes from the US and Latin American markets.

Commenting on the new office opening in the US, Constant Commerce founder, Johnathan Agnès said:

“The demand for our technology since we first launched two years ago has been pretty phenomenal. Last year we grew tenfold, beating even our own expectations.

“We are now working with some of the world’s biggest and best-known brands and as we work with these partners to develop new technologies, the need for us to open offices in both the US and Asia became obvious. Over the next 12 months, we are expecting to grow by another two or three hundred percent, so we are looking to recruit the best possible talent. That means tapping into the talent pools in Silicon Valley and Southeast Asia.”

The new office in San Francisco is based in San Mateo, where Constant Commerce will be working with five major US customers to develop new products that drive shopper engagement based on Constant Commerce’s platform. The office will also serve as the base from which the business will manage key long-term customers like Walmart and Unilever’s US operations.

The Singapore office will be an operations base for Constant Commerce’s growing Asian and Australian activities, resulting in an enhanced service and support for customers in the region.
