    One of the best teams to open a rep office

    I am highly impressed with the impeccable services given by Emerhub and would recommend others as well to try Emerhub. We opened a Rep Office in Jakarta through Emerhub and without their guidance and support the work would not have got done. They have one of the best teams to handle given work.

    Responsive and professional

    I have had good experiences with Emerhub in setting up our overseas entities. The team is generally responsive and professional. Some fees are a bit on the high side, but the positive thing is that they offer a wide range of services which gives me a one-stop shop as a customer.

    Diligent and detailed, could improve internal communication

    The team carries out its work diligently with detailed information given. However, internal teamwork has some room for improvement as it sometimes takes a bit of time to receive the requested information. Anyhow, they are professional and carry out every project we assign to them.
