This week we announced 300% sales growth over the past three years in Japan, where smartphones surpassed feature phones as the most acquired device last February.
But we can’t give all the credit to Japan. Our Country Manager Nobuhiro Suemasa has been meeting every opportunity to provide enterprises and ISPs with the capabilities and support they need to feed user demand for critical smartphone messaging features. Thanks to Nobuhiro Suemasa’s tireless leadership and the hard work put in by his team, Sendmail is now used by more than 600 Japanese organizations, including 9 of the country’s largest email service providers and mobile operators.
That translates into roughly 50 million mailboxes for Sendmail, and a well-deserved VP promotion for Nobuhiro Suemasa.
We’ve come a long way. But with smart phone usage and machine-based email for core business operations continuing to grow rapidly in Japan and all over the world, I’d say we’re still just getting started.
