Goldenway Launches New Website with Bahasa Indonesia and Updated Designs Added

leave a comment »

-Think Globally, Act Locally

LONDON /PRNewswire/ — Goldenway Global Investments Ltd. (GWFX), a leading global online FX and precious metal trading company that provides worldwide e-commerce client services from its bases in the UK and New Zealand, has announced it is continuing its global expansion with the launch of its new, mobile-friendly website that is also available with Bahasa Indonesia as an additional language.

In keeping with the firmly held company philosophy of ‘think globally, act locally,’ and in an effort to continue as a leading international brand, the updated website — which was officially launched on June 1 — includes many new responsive design features that correspond to GWFX’s vision for 2015.

“Increasing our operations to include the rapidly developing Indonesian market was an easy decision,” explains Darren Vickers Goldenway UK Director. “By adding the Bahasa Indonesia language and a number of other responsive design features to our list of online services, expansion into new markets and subsequent business growth in key areas will be made easier. It is an exciting move for the company at the current time.”

One enhancement being the new website’s responsiveness on mobile platforms. Due to the rapid increase in people accessing the company site via a mobile device, the new platform has addressed the needs of these customers allowing further business growth and encourage expansion internationally. A more up to date website will also assist Goldenway in attracting and establishing local business partners in key growth areas.

‘Think Globally, Act Locally’

In addition to GWFX’s advancement into the Indonesian market, the company’s philosophy of ‘think globally, act locally’ was also on show with the unveiling of the new Swansea City football kit that will be worn by the South Wales club during the upcoming 2015/2016 Barclays Premier League season.

For the third year in a row, the company is proud to be the club’s main sponsor and build on what was a historic 2014/2015 campaign for the Swans, achieving their highest ever Premier League finish and points tally in a record breaking season.

The addition of the special copper stripe on the new first team home shirts pays tribute to Swansea’s industrial past as a city renowned for its copper-smelting and manufacturing heritage in the 18th and 19th century, a history which matches GWFX’s background as a leading online FX and precious metal trading firm. The club also revealed a new slogan ‘History Takes Time’, and it is GWFX’s profound hope that the two can continue to work and make history together.

As part of Goldenway’s partnership with Swansea City Football Club and in celebration of the launch of GWFX inIndonesia, first year student at Swansea University Theo Teja was invited to the club’s final home game of the season, against Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday May 17.

The initiative forms one part of a greater company focus, which is to increase support for South East Asian students around the world. Recently Goldenway partnered with Swansea University to encourage the creation of job opportunities while supporting minority students at the university. This allowed local business communities and management of Swansea University to attend Swansea City matches in what is undoubtedly a ‘think globally, act locally,’ moment.

Partnering local businesses and the university will allow the prospect for improved employment opportunities. Goldenway and the Swansea University School of Management are looking forward to working together with the students conducting projects with Goldenways assistance.

Thinking globally while acting locally is necessary for most internet-based companies, whilst being flexible to local environments and staying aware of local issues allows Goldenway the opportunity to provide solutions based on local communities. Increasing the brand’s awareness in Indonesia is another step towards encouraging local development in Indonesia as well as providing the means to promote Indonesia’s continued globalisation and further development.
