Cloud-based unified communications and social collaboration platform Unified Inbox officially sets up its international headquarters in Singapore, as a strategic move to grow the company globally and expand into the Asia region.

While still in the closed beta phase, Unified Inbox has already secured top tier telco companies, ISP and media partners for a global market roll out in 2015 as they see the huge potential of this Communication-as-a-Service platform as a simple, yet highly effective way of users taking control of their communications flow across email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or SMS.

Podium Ventures dubbed Unified Inbox as a startup to watch and Business Insider ranked the company #11 on its Startup List (2012). 

“Singapore is one of the best places in the world to start and grow a tech company,“ says Toby Ruckert, Founder & CEO of Unified Inbox. “It is one of the leading technology nations in Asia and offers an excellent environment for ICT businesses with strong government support, securing of intellectual property as well as producing top students, leading to an excellent talent pool both in management as well as in R&D.“

In the long run, Unified Inbox’s presence in Singapore also serves as the doorway to the Asia region. “We've secured our first lighthouse enterprise customers here and choosing Singapore will allow us to expand into other Asia markets quickly,” says Robert Sim, Business Development Manager for Unified Inbox. “Negotiations with various channel and marketing partners to expand Unified Inbox quickly into the region are already taking place.“

Unified Inbox has several cloud solutions focused around unification and collaboration which work cross-platform. Their first offering is a Unified Inbox mobile app which allows users to manage all their incoming and outgoing messages centrally from within one interface. Unified Inbox has embraced the idea of simply „Getting Things Done“ and aim towards better productivity of the information worker. With functions like Swipe to Archive or Delete, Task-Delegation, Message Distribution or Deferring of messages by simple gestures, Unified Inbox gears up to become the future inbox management solution – no matter what the source of the message.

Unified Inbox is backed by internationally independent investors with deep insight into the verticals the company is set to operate in. To expand its Communication-as-a-Service platform globally and get ready for the international market launch, Unified Inbox is looking to raise further funds from investors in Singapore and the surrounding regions.
