PITTSBURGH, Sept. 30, 2020 — PAAS, the global leader in technology spend analytics, announced its expansion into the India market by solidifying a partnership with Luxury Connect LLP of New Delhi, India. The partnership is not limited to India but also covers a large portion of EMEA and Southeast Asia.
“After seeing the PAAS360 platform, a great sense of relief prevailed upon me. During the pandemic, most organizations have cut costs by shutting down non-performing assets and or reducing team sizes. They seem to be at a loss for any further cost reduction possibilities. However, savings offered by PAAS in the technology space are unquestionably brilliant and, as yet, untapped. I see a great future in this direction and am happy to partner with PAAS in spreading this across various countries,” said Abhay Gupta, founder and CEO of Luxury Connect LLP.
“We are thrilled to finalize the partnership with Abhay Gupta and the Luxury Connect team,” said Eric Cunningham, founder of PAAS. “Behind North America, India is the second largest technology spending market and this partnership strategically expands the PAAS brand into the India and EU market.”
The PAAS360 platform includes more than 100 million technology data points and 5,100 unique technology suppliers to optimize the best pricing for clients of all sizes, industries, and locations. Luxury Connect and its partner ecosystem will focus on the expansion of the “PAAS Savings Desk” platform.
