About

ExportX®  exports to and sells products in the USA, Canada, China, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany and France.

ExportX uses its deep e-commerce expertise and automated systems to bypass conventional distribution, harnessing the power of the world’s biggest online marketplaces.

 

The new way of exporting with ExportX eliminates most of the cost and time to market involved with conventional export market entry. For manufacturers this means export revenue in hand sooner and with dramatically lower business risk, and superior product and brand representation online.

ExportX received the Rising Star award in the 2012 Deloitte Fast 50, was named one of New Zealand’s 50 fastest-growing companies in 2013 and was named 2011 Exporter of the Year in its category by the American Chamber of Commerce. The Exporter of the Year awards recognise success and innovation in business relationships with America.

The company was recognised as a finalist in the 2011 and 2012 Air New Zealand Export Awards, and named in the Asia-Pacific Technology Fast 500 in 2012, 2013 and 2016.

ExportX was formerly known as World Wide Access, prior to changing its name to ExportX in early 2014.

 

Paul Grey

Paul Grey founded ExportX (as World Wide Access) in 2008 with the specific objective of using software technology to make it faster, easier and more efficient for products to reach American customers.

Prior to establishing ExportX, Paul was Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Peace Software, at the time New Zealand’s largest software product development company. Peace Software’s international success is often cited as an example for technology businesses to follow.

Paul’s career with Peace Software included eight years based in the USA where he gained an understanding of online technology and e-commerce, and developed a great appreciation for the scale of opportunity in the world’s biggest markets.

ExportX is founded on Paul’s vision of using software technology to overcome the barriers of conventional export market entry, which he encountered first-hand in taking Peace Software successfully into the American market.

Alister Gates

Alister joined ExportX to head its push into Asia. Alister brings a passion for taking products into Asian countries, a strong network of contacts within the New Zealand export community and first-hand knowledge of the Japanese market having lived there for four years. From a standing start he has launched nine New Zealand brands in Japan using Rakuten and Amazon Japan. Several products have already achieved bestseller rankings in their categories.

In the Chinese market Alister has launched four New Zealand product brands on major e-commerce sites including Taobao and Amazon China.

Alister uses his experience in working with New Zealand businesses to develop localised product and marketing programmes for each brand adapted to different cultural environments.
