Service2Media, the global provider of Advanced App Solutions, has announced the opening of its second office in the UAE. The office in Dubai will enable the company to further penetrate into one of the world’s fastest emerging and investment ready app services markets.
The new office will focus on supporting existing clients such as Al Jazeera and Abu Dhabi Media Company, as well as building an attractive new market presence in the Middle East market, strengthening Service2Media’s position in the region. The Dubai office complements Service2Media’s offices in Europe and the United States.
Lisette Sens, Vice President-Sales, and co-founder of Service2Media, said: “We have spent the last few years developing our business pipeline in the Middle East and have been extremely impressed with the vision of many of the government agencies, media, finance and utility companies with regard to their mobile app strategies. We are excited to make our App Lifecycle Platform – ‘Apps Designed Once – Deployed on Multiple Devices – Evolved throughout their Life’, available for this important growth market.”
Recently Service2Media announced an investment of ten million U.S. dollars from Private Plus Fund and Prime Ventures – known for their investments in Layar and eBuddy. The company also entered Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Mobile Consumer Application Platforms, amongst established companies like RIM, SAP and HP.

With our new investment, we show that we are strongly committed to helping to develop digital Arabia, elevating it to one of the most advanced in the world by delivering unrivalled mobile and tablet app solutions to its clients and partners.”
