Tigerspike recognised for an unprecedented 6th year in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards.

Global Personal Media technology company, Tigerspike is in its sixth consecutive year in the coveted Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2012, achieving record long term growth over the past nine years.

Tigerspike’s group CEO Luke Janssen said: ““Nine years of record beating revenue growth is a real achievement for us, especially since eight years were with no equity or debt funding. We took $11m investment last year, most of which was spent on our Phoenix “Back end as a service” (BaaS) platform and SaaS enterprise mobile products.”

“This investment in our highly scalable platform and products will fuel our underlying recurring revenues and hopefully keep us in the Deloitte Fast 50 for many years to come. The immediate goal is to continue on the path of Atlassian; another great Australian company who surpassed 6 years on the list!”

Now in its twelfth year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia 2012 program recognises and profiles Australia’s 50 fastest growing public or private technology companies, based on percentage revenue growth over three years (2010 to 2012).

As revenues grow, staying in the list becomes more and more difficult. Tigerspike was the highest ranked company in the list for 6 years running. Tigerspike also ranked higher than companies who had been in the list for 4 and 5 years. As one of only 2 companies in the list for the 6th year running Tigerspike is following in the footsteps of Atlassian.

Since its launch in 2003, Tigerspike has opened offices in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Dubai, New York, San Francisco and Singapore and has 180 staff across four continents. Tigerspike’s clients include American Express, Westfield, Standard Chartered, The Economist, News Corporation, Shell, Merck, Suncorp, Kaiser Permanente, Sears, Woolworths and Vodafone.

Tigerspike’s long term growth will be fuelled by last year’s investment, their proprietary Phoenix platform and SaaS products driving scale via its global footprint. Tigerspike’s customer base of over 500 tier 1 clients will enable the rapid deployment of Tigerspike’s new SaaS products across the world.

Golden Village Introduces the Next Generation of Cinemas at City Square Mall

Golden Village expands with 11th cinema location

Singapore, November 8, 2012 — Singapore’s leading cinema exhibitor, Golden Village (GV) continues to revolutionize the local entertainment industry by launching its 11th cinema location, GV City Square. Showcasing the next generation cinema, GV City Square features cutting-edge technologies that will enhance the film going experience and empower audiences.

Located at City Square Mall, the brand-new GV multiplex will house six cinema auditoriums with a total seating capacity of 1082, of which one auditorium will be a unique and intimate 42-seater ‘Couple’s Cinema’. All six cinemas will have stadium seating, ample leg room, wall-to-wall digital screens with crystal-clear 2K digital projection, 7.1 Dolby digital sound and premium-grade EAW® speakers from the United States.

Costing an estimated S$6 million to design and build, GV City Square boasts new automated features that will transform Singapore’s cinema-going experience in today’s digital age.

“Golden Village is proud to launch GV City Square as Singapore’s latest state-of-the-art cinema. As our 11th multiplex location, GV City Square offers many industry-firsts that will shape the way cinemas are operated in the future,” said Mr. Kurt Rieder, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Village.

Revolutionary ‘Firsts’ in Cinema Experience

GV City Square will be the launch pad of Singapore’s first cinema auto-gate system via a confirmed booking code sent to a moviegoer’s phone. Conceptualized to better manage high volumes of patrons entering the cinema, GV City Square’s auto-gate allows bi-directional traffic flow.

GV City Square will also achieve a significant milestone by implementing an integrated digital projection solution where all necessary equipment is housed inside the auditorium thereby removing the additional floor area of a typical projection room. With the integrated digital projection solution, projection operations become automated and human intervention is reduced to a minimum. These innovations were made possible by adopting the use of a Theatre Management System (TMS) that acts as a central control over the entire multiplex’s digital equipment. Through a user-friendly interface, GV’s cinema managers can create, schedule and amend playlists based on their screening requirements by just dragging and dropping the required content into the playlist.

With the TMS, GV cinema managers have a dashboard overview of the real-time status of their digital projectors: the title and current running time of every film playing will be displayed simultaneously. Enhancing this infrastructure is a wireless single-point management tablet enabling maximum mobility whereby GV managers will be able to control all digital equipment from anywhere in the cinema.

Following the opening of GV City Square, Golden Village will be re-launching an enhanced version of iGV – Golden Village’s mobile-ticketing application available towards to end of the year. The enhanced mobile app will be compatible with smartphone platforms such as iOS and Android, followed by Windows early next year. Moviegoers who book tickets through the refreshed iGV can make confirmed credit card payments as well.

Launch of “I Run The Cinema @ GV City Square”

Committed to finding ways to offer patrons a unique movie-going experience, Golden Village seeks to empower movie-goers at GV City Square with their new campaign, “I RUN THE CINEMA @ GV CITY SQUARE” ─ giving patrons the opportunity to take control of their movie-outing. From choosing the movie title to be screened, personalizing their movie snack pack to having the option of paying less when they book tickets early, GV’s customers will be more empowered than ever before. The movie-going public will also have the chance to premiere their own film productions at GV City Square’s ‘Couple’s Cinema’.

Promoting the Cinema to Movie-Goers, by Movie-Goers

As a commitment to offer greater engagement with movie–goers, Golden Village is working with an outstanding team of students from the NBS MarkeTHINK Club of Nanyang Business School. These tertiary students, who understand the demands and expectations of their peers, will be creating fresh marketing initiatives that will launch at GV City Square.

Movie-goers who are interested to watch the latest movies at the brand-new GV City Square are welcome to check newspaper directory listings or log-on to http://www.gv.com.sg for updated screening times.

GV City Square is located at 180 Kitchener Road, #05-02/03, City Square Mall, Singapore 208539
