PROVO, UT, July 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Access Technology Solutions (ATS) continues providing industry leadership to the rapidly growing number of U.S. firms interested in expanding the reach of their goods and services to fast-growing international markets. On July 16th, ATS and its President & CEO Chris Boyle will be featured on Chris Redgrave's popular radio show, Zions Bank Speaking on Business. On Tuesday July 15th and Wednesday July 16th Boyle will be appearing on stage as an Asian market expert and panelist at the Growing Global conference in Long Beach, CA.
Speaking on Business is a popular radio show on which host Chris Redgrave features a wide range of Utah-based businesses that offer creative and compelling products and solutions both to Utah residents and consumers around the world. The July 16th show touches on how Boyle founded his company upon returning to the U.S. after several years of living and working in Japan. Boyle's American friends still stationed in Tokyo would regularly contact him seeking favorite grocery items like snacks and breakfast cereals that they missed being able to buy while living and working overseas.
After writing some code and creating software to help automate the customs clearing process, Boyle set up an online grocery store and started shipping these cherished products to Japan. This altruistic venture quickly took off. Boyle's company has since grown into Access Technology Solutions, a cloud-based technology solution provider and global logistics firm that helps U.S. companies -- especially innovative direct selling and eCommerce companies -- ship their products to the international markets at a fraction of the cost of other international shippers.
Boyle will also join a cadre of experts on international retail expansion and cross-border eCommerce at the inaugural Growing Global conference in Long Beach, CA, which Multichannel Merchant magazine is organizing.
Boyle will help the audience of eCommerce executives, direct marketers and direct sellers understand which Asian markets are hot-spots for U.S.-based sellers, why marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay and Rakuten offer lower-risk market entry opportunities and how to create a cost-effective global shipping strategy to Asian markets. Boyle will also join an eCommerce executive from IBM and China market entry expert to discuss the pros and cons of setting up eCommerce and direct-to-consumer operations in China.
"Our team is seeing a surge of interest in selling into China and across Asia from online brands and direct sellers of all shapes and sizes," shared ATS CEO Chris Boyle in a recent interview. "So it's no surprise that we're seeing more and more opportunities to share market entry insights and best practices for going global. We serve markets all around the world and although we see growth everywhere, Asia and especially China is just booming right now. We appreciate the chance to join forums where we can provide guidance and best practices that help global direct-to-consumer brands enrich the lives of shoppers everywhere."
