Giunti Labs, Europe's leading vendor of e-learning and mobile learning content management solutions, has established an office in Boston, MA, in the USA. According to Fabrizio Cardinali, Giunti Labs’ CEO: “This move into the North American market further expands our global presence.”
“The North American market is ready to embrace Giunti Labs’ technology,” said Stephan K. Thieringer, Managing Director of Giunti Labs North America. “Public organisations, higher education institutions and privately held companies are starting to implement their strategies of future proof intellectual property and content and we are the world leader at providing the technology to foster that.”
Parallel to expanding its global operations, Giunti Labs is building its consulting services group.
“We are more than a technology provider,” explained Cardinali. “E-learning services and content production form a significant part of our business and we are looking forward to sharing the vision with US and Canadian organisations.”
Giunti Labs will be presenting in three e-learning events in North America in April: the Masie LMS 2007 conference (Las Vegas, April 12-13), MedBiquitous annual conference (Baltimore, April 16-18) and IMS Learning Impact and the Summit on Global Learning Industry Challenges (Vancouver, April 16-19).
“In these events we will be demonstrating the capabilities of our learn eXact e-learning and mobile learning suite,” said Cardinali.
“We are also a finalist in the IMS Learning Impact Awards, together with our client, R-ITI Project, an initiative of the UK’s National Health Service. R-ITI project is using Giunti Labs’ solutions for training radiologists. The project’s results are showing that it is one of the most successful e-learning projects in Europe.”
