MOSCOW, RUSSIA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/05/13 -- Arkadin, one of the world's largest and fastest growing Collaboration Service Providers, announced today that its new operation in Russia has strong demand for its audio and web collaboration offerings. The demand is being fueled by a strengthening economy in Russia that requires organizations to instantly connect with customers, vendors and remote employees to be more efficient and competitive in a flat 24/7 business environment.
"After establishing operations here last spring, we're off to a strong start," says Remy Prouvost, Arkadin's Vice President of CEMEA. "Russian organizations of all sizes and industries -- including many top global brands -- understand the necessity of equipping their employees with collaboration technology for instant communication with customers, partners and distributed teams throughout the country and other parts of the globe."
Large corporations benefiting from Arkadin's cloud-based audio and web collaboration technology in Russia include: Colliers Russia, a subsidiary of Colliers International, a global leader in real estate services; Rusfinance Bank, a subsidiary of Societe Generale, with operations in 64 Russian regions, and NTT Com, a large Tokyo-based Telco that has an agreement with Arkadin to white-label its services for use by Russian-based Japanese businesses.
Leading analysts predict audio and web conferencing usage will surge in Eastern Europe and Russia far outpacing the more established Western European economies. In its published reports, Frost & Sullivan forecasted the Eastern European Audio Services Market, which includes Russia, to increase 26.9% through 2016, the highest of any European region. And its European WebConferencing Services Market report predicts revenue growth will almost triple for web conferencing in the same region through 2015.
