Emerging Markets Communications Expands European Oil & Gas Industry Involvement With FPAL License

FPAL Community Enables Oil & Gas Companies to Pre-Qualify and Assess Trusted Suppliers

ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND--(Marketwired - May 16, 2014) - Global Satellite (VSAT) and terrestrial services provider Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) announced today that it is a confirmed supplier of Achilles' First Point Assessment (FPAL). FPAL is a community used by major Oil & Gas companies and buyers in Europe to identify, pre-qualify and assess suppliers for various operational projects and opportunities. Founded in 1996, Achilles FPAL focuses on industry best practices and minimizing risk for important buying decisions by their member buyers and organizations.

Having this Achilles FPAL supplier license allows EMC to improve efficiencies in the business process. Over 2,000 individual buyers are actively engaged, making it easier to identify new customer opportunities as well as measure business performance against other competitors and submitted proposals. In addition, the ability to proactively submit company information via the Advanced Registration Questionnaire saves time by avoiding the need for submitting repetitive requests for information from each potential customer.

"FPAL will be a great tool to strategically build our European customer base, especially with our recent expansion of an Aberdeen office," says John Seaton, EMC's Head of the Aberdeen office location. "This membership does more than just get the EMC brand name out; it drastically simplifies the process of finding the most appropriate match for our services among potential customers in the oil & gas business. This is instrumental in monitoring our success in this market and developing our business strategy for future growth."
