The Asia 500 also offers consumer brand manufacturers a research tool to help identify new and accessible outlets for their goods and services, and for e-commerce technology vendors to discover potential new buyers of their products and services. “We spent more than a year researching the Asian market to extract the rich data in the Asia 500 Guide,” explains Love. “Our researchers travelled there and made dozens of expert contacts, and they emerged from this study with one common impression: Asian e-retailers are desperately looking to upgrade their fast-growing web sites, which remain several versions behind those in the U.S. Their search for tools to catch up with the West is bound to take them to Western e-commerce vendors.”
For the first time, the Asia 500 is available in three formats: print, digital and as part of the all-new and completely updated Top500Guide.com. Information on how to order the brand-new 2013 Asia 500 Guide is available here.
