Clary Icon, the US-based manufacturer of OneScreen all-in-one video collaboration hubs for barrier-free workflow, has expanded its partnership with Hitachi to now include Hitachi Solutions Europe. Hitachi Solutions Europe will provide full sales and support services to OneScreen customers and resellers, aimed at strong market penetration, sales growth, and customer satisfaction.
“Our partnership with Clary Icon continues to produce substantial growth opportunities for Hitachi’s global collaboration business initiative," said Mark Sturges, director of product and services group sales, Hitachi Solutions. "We see a strategic alignment with OneScreen hubware and OneScreen SaaS solutions to deliver best-in-class visual collaboration and the competitive advantages it offers to our customers in Europe."
The global e-learning market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 25 percent according to TechNavio’s Global e- Learning Market 2014-2018 report. One of the key factors affecting the market growth is the corporate sector’s increasing usage and acceptance of e-learning. Digital video systems have revolutionized traditional modes of both training and teaching. Additionally, government initiatives aimed at integrating advanced technologies in educational institutions have increased in both the U.S. and U.K.
Clary Icon, in partnership with Hitachi Solutions Europe, will target this growing market to capture increased percentage of market share in the region. Clary Icon and Hitachi Solutions Europe officially launched the partnership last week at ISE in Amsterdam.
