Queue-it expands support for APAC region with new Tokyo data center
Queue-it opens new data center in the Asia-Pacific region to improve performance and reliability for its fast-growing APAC customer base.
Queue-it, the market leader in virtual waiting room software and services, today announces the opening of a new Amazon Web Services (AWS) data center in Tokyo, Japan. This new data center will improve Queue-it’s performance, reliability, and speed for customers in the APAC region, where the company has seen rapid growth in recent years.
The APAC data center is Queue-it’s first in the region, and its 3rd globally. It joins Queue-it’s existing data centers in North America and Europe.
The new data center will decrease latency by 78% in Hong Kong and 96% in Japan. It provides the APAC region a virtual waiting room solution with speeds comparable to those in North America and Europe.
Since opening the third global Queue-it office in Sydney, Australia, in 2019, Queue-it’s presence in the APAC market has grown rapidly. In recent years, Queue-it has supported Black Friday sales for Toys R’ Us Japan; high demand sales for A.S. Watson and Cathay Pacific; and vaccination registrations for the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
“It’s not always easy to work with vendors outside Japan, with the time difference, or the discrepancies between working attitude and role division. But Queue-it’s performance was extremely satisfying for us,” says Ryobun Morinaga from MOS FOOD SERVICES Digital Promotion Department.
“We’ve been so pleased by the warm reception of our virtual waiting room solution in the APAC region,” says Queue-it CEO Niels Henrik Sodemann. “This new data center is part of our ongoing commitment to the Asia-Pacific market and will better empower our customers to deliver online fairness to the world’s largest population of internet users.”
