Sentiance Celebrates Official Opening of Shanghai Office
Sentiance is pleased to announce the official grand opening of its new office in Shanghai.
During the opening ceremony on June 25th, 2018, Sentiance welcomed local Chinese corporate, government and media partners as the company laid out its vision, growth strategy and latest R&D developments in shared mobility, connected health and online-to-offline (O2O) commerce.
The Shanghai office is the latest addition to a growing number of offices worldwide. In addition to the corporate headquarters in Antwerp, Belgium, and offices in New York, Toronto, London, and Vilnius the company now has a local presence in China allowing it to closely collaborate with local private and state-owned companies.
The Chinese market represents an important and immediate opportunity for Sentiance’s solutions across a wide range of applications. With the accelerated growth of the Chinese insuretech space, Sentiance has started to work with both traditional and new insurance companies to enable lifestyle based insurance innovations. Sentiance has also had recent validation of its platform in the Chinese fintech space through its award for the best ‘New Payment Experience’ in Visa’s Everywhere Initiative in China. And the company is partnering with IT solution providers to bid for local Smart City projects, providing insights into real-time and real-world activities for urban planning and operations.
“Behavioral and contextual intelligence will be key in creating highly personalized experiences in China’s increasingly mobile-first and data-driven market. The development of AI-enabled solutions will definitely create new opportunities in smart mobility, connected health, online-to-offline retail, and smart cities. The market prospects are very broad. Sentiance is very well positioned to become the local leader in contextual intelligence, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this success story,” said General Manager for China Yaoheng (Yao) Zhang, who recently joined the global team on May 8th.
