Popular remote connectivity software, TeamViewer, revealed their usage statistics during the announcement of the opening of their new Mumbai office. The number of installations from Q1 2017 to Q1 2018 grew by 23% along with a rise of 28.6% in the number of active monthly devices. Connections also grew by 25.6%. Essentially, the usage of TeamViewer in India is at an all time high with around 96,200,000 installations in the country until now. Considering this massive growth and in an effort to overcome geographical challenges, the company decided to open up an office in the country at Mumbai. Earlier, operations of the APAC region were conducted from Adelaide, Australia. Realising the enormous potential in this region, they had earlier opened offices at more locations including Shanghai and Tokyo, and now in Mumbai for the South Asia region.
“Opening an office in India is integral part of our APAC growth ambitions with a strong focus on going multi-local to be closer to our existing customers and even better understand the market, client, and partner needs,” said Oliver Steil, CEO of TeamViewer, speaking to the media in Mumbai. “With our strong commitment to India we aim to address the substantial opportunities of work-style reform and the strong demand from businesses of all sizes for secure remote connectivity solutions at scale. We are very excited to further strengthen our footprint in one of the fastest growing economies in the world that is at the forefront of digital transformation.”
During an interaction, Oliver stated the company’s high ambitions of growing in the Indian market by taking into account the various local initiatives. “With the growth of India’s digital footprint, more and more industries in the country are developing and implementing IoT, AR, and AI innovation. TeamViewer offers best-in-class connectivity enabling our customers to securely tap into these megatrends,” said Krunal Patel, TeamViewer Head of Sales India and South Asia. “Our channel partner fraternity will play a pivotal role in driving this growth with sector specific solutions. We already have Ingram micro signed up as our first distributor in India and are quickly expanding our existing reseller network.”
TeamViewer also shared global stats displaying their strength in numbers. With more than 1.8 billion installations, there are more than 274 million active endpoints with over 40 million of them being concurrent connections or sessions. TeamViewer had over 330 million active devices (at least one successful incoming and outgoing connection) in the last year.
