PASADENA, Calif. and HONG KONG, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The1stMovement (The1stMovement.com) (T1M) digital agency announced that they have been selected by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) to design and develop the new "AccessHK" initiative, a multi-platform (desktop PC, tablet, mobile), online portal that will further position HKTDC as the leading source for information on doing business in Hong Kong.
Ming Chan, T1M's CEO and a Hong Kong native, stated, "HKTDC demonstrates their forward-thinking and customer-driven view with their innovative AccessHK initiative. This is an entirely new digital solution that will provide businesses and people with everything they need to know about doing business in Hong Kong."
As one of the largest trade development councils in the world, HKTDC acts as a window from Hong Kong, "Asia's World City", to the outside world.
Jenn DePauw, Senior Director of Operations, explained, "T1M was awarded this important, multi-year digital project because we demonstrated the special attributes HKTDC required. HKTDC wanted more than just a design and development shop; they also wanted consultative, insight-driven solutions. As a small and nimble agency, we bring Fortune 500 expertise as well as fresh, innovative thinking. They also valued our application of Agile methodology throughout all our projects."
Ming continued, "This was a very important pitch for us as we were up against some of the largest, Fortune 100 digital agencies and consultancies. It was a bit like David and Goliath! We are thrilled to work with HKTDC and to further expand our presence in Hong Kong. We believe Hong Kong is, and will continue to be, a critical player in the international technology and business community."
