Hong Kong, Central, Hong Kong, 2013/01/21 - Arkadin, Europe's 2nd largest collaboration services provider, announced today that it is has strong demand for its audio and web collaboration offerings in Poland.
The rapid expansion is being fueled by a challenging economic environment that requires businesses to seek greater communications efficiencies. With conferencing and collaboration technologies, business travel can be substantially reduced, resulting in cost savings and reduced carbon outlays.
"After a year in the region, we're very pleased with the strong performance and long-term outlook," says Remy Prouvost, Arkadin's Vice-President of CEMEA. "Our complete range of audio and web collaboration solutions, coupled with our local service offering, equips businesses to succeed in a 24/7 business environment where sharing and collaboration are key drivers for success."
Leading analysts predict conferencing usage will surge in Eastern Europe far outpacing the more established Western European economies. In its European Audio Conferencing Services Market report (April 2011), Frost & Sullivan predicts audio conferencing in CEE will increase 26.9% through 2016, the highest of any European region. And in their European Web Conferencing Services Market report (Oct. 2010), Frost & Sullivan predicts revenue growth will almost triple for web conferencing in the region through 2015.
