Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Digitalisation & CX solution provider and advisory firm, iMovo Limited announced, that it has established a presence in Portugal.

This investment will allow the company to further develop and strengthen its international business segment. Prior to this new venture, approximately a third of iMovo’s revenue was derived from its broad and high-profile customer base within markets such as the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and the Middle East.

This venture will allow iMovo to achieve one of its key goals, to become a strong international player in its fields of expertise which include Digitalisation through technologies such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Data Science & Analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robot Process Automation (RPA).

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about a rethink in the business philosophy of the company and Portugal was selected as the location for its new international presence following an analysis of the characteristics of the market as well as the growth potential of adjacent Iberian markets as well as Portuguese speaking markets in South America and Africa. Portugal itself, prior to the pandemic was one of Europe’s fastest-growing economies and Lisbon, in particular, has developed into a popular base for numerous technology companies such as Cloudflare, Google and Microsoft as well as several start-ups. It has also been the venue for the popular Web Summit for the past few years.

The first employee of the new venture came on board on December 1st and is already working well with the Malta-based team on projects related to some of iMovo’s international customers. Additional personnel will be joining the company in Q1 2021, based in and around Lisbon.

iMovo is a specialised solution provider and advisory firm which focuses in the customer experience and digitalisation space. It enjoys deep working relationships with a number of leaders in these fields which include Zendesk, Salesforce, Qlik, Tableau, Snowflake, Microsoft, Talend and UiPath. Its customers range from global blue-chip retailers to banks, manufacturers, igaming operators, distributors and financial services firms amongst others.

“Internationalisation has been on the company agenda since day one, when we first started up some 10 years ago. Though I have to admit we could not have imagined that we’d be engaging with the kind of customers we do today. We are thrilled to be entering the Portuguese market and to be working in partnership with some really interesting companies there, about which we’ll make some announcements later on. In the face of the global pandemic the world is faced with, this venture clearly sends the signal that iMovo is a serious player and willing to reach out to new markets, rather than playing defence and going into cost-cutting mode”. – said Pierre Mallia, Managing Director of iMovo Limited.

Massive News for the Esports Industry with Potential Inclusion in the Commonwealth Games

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Esports is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and there’s no limit to how big it could become. It’s already breached a valuation of $1 billion, and it’s expected to grow to $13.05 billion by 2025.

One of the greatest indicators that competitive gaming is going mainstream is the fact that it has been recognised by the Commonwealth Games. Indeed, it is expected to be included when the event takes place in Victoria in 2026.

Test Run Has Already Taken Place

A few years ago, the thought of seeing Esports at the Commonwealth Games would have been laughable. Now, it is a realistic prospect. It was recently reported that a dry run of the Commonwealth Esports Championships was held in Birmingham, England, at the 2022 Commonwealth Games to see if this type of competitive action could be included as an official event in 2026. It went well and garnered positive feedback from the people involved.

The Victoria edition of the Commonwealth Games is set to take place in 2026, with 16 sports already confirmed. However, the organisers are hoping to add more to the schedule with Esports being strongly considered. Competitive gaming has proven to be a popular spectator sport, with more people tuning in to watch it every year. By 2026, there could be close to a billion people watching Esports, meaning that it would be a popular inclusion at a major event.

Esports has been referred to as the “new sporting frontier,” and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it gaining even more credibility in the next decade. Even the world’s biggest traditional sports had to start somewhere. Football and cricket are now well-established and loved the world over, and there’s nothing stopping Esports from following a similar trajectory.

How Will This Affect Related Industries?

With the Commonwealth Games set to take place in Australia next time, the country could be in a prime position to capitalise on the inclusion of Esports. Part of the success of competitive gaming up to this point has been thanks to related industries pushing it, along with big name companies striking sponsorship deals. Australian companies, therefore, will most certainly seek to capitalise in 2026.

The betting industry was built around traditional sports, and it is now a behemoth industry around the world. In Australia, online betting is so popular that there are countless sites vying for bettors’ attention. Indeed, there are so many to sift through that people turn to comparison sites that list the best ones based on their offers and ratings. Bettors simply scroll through and then click a link to be taken directly to a site.

Many of these online sportsbooks are already offering eSports betting, and the number of markets available is only set to rise in the future. When the Commonwealth Games rolls around, betting sites could benefit from special offers. They may also start to have a greater focus on Esports, thus drawing more attention to the competitive gaming industry.

Esports at the Commonwealth Games isn’t just huge news for the industry itself, but it’s a great move for related industries. Australian companies are set to benefit in 2026, with the betting industry being in a particularly strong position to take advantage.
