Qumu Opens European HQ in Frankfurt; New Offices in London, Dubai, Singapore and Tokyo

San Bruno, CA – 20 March 2013 – Qumu announced opening of five international offices, including its European Headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany. Office locations include Frankfurt and London in Europe, Dubai in the Middle East, and Singapore and Tokyo in the Asia Pacific region. Qumu, a Rimage company, is a leading business video platform provider headquartered in San Bruno, California. 

“Qumu’s deep, no-holds-barred commitment to EMEA and Asia Pacific means our customers and partners will reap the benefits from having attentive and dedicated local personnel who understand the nuances of this market and the unique needs of communication professionals,” said Vern Hanzlik, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Qumu. “In a highly competitive market, companies must do a lot with limited resources. This expansion will help more professionals leverage the power of video to improve communications within their organisations.” 

Since its European office was founded in Germany last year, Qumu has seen an explosion of growth outside the U.S.; its EMEA customer base grew 50% more in 2012 than in the six months prior. With 240 million hours of video being watched in the UK every month, and 27% of people in Germany using their mobile devices to consume video, the use of video overall is definitely on the rise in Europe. With on-going successes in the U.S. and abroad, Qumu aims to catalyze video communications innovation in a region that is primed for continued growth. 

The expansion into Asia Pacific markets builds on the Company’s partnerships in the region, most significantly with Multipolar in Indonesia and 3Opp in Malaysia. With enterprise video growth up 33.7% overall in Asia Pacific in 2012, Qumu has timed this expansion to coincide with this upswing in video use.
