VBrick expands in EMEA15 February 2011
Enterprise IP video company VBrick Systems has announced that its global partner program reached a significant milestone with the addition of five new reseller and distributor partners spanning Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Collectively, the company says that these new partners have signed on dozens of new customers across VBrick’s core market sectors including corporate, education and government. The addition of these customers to VBrick’s steadily growing worldwide customer roster is said to have resulted in the company tripling its international revenue in the last year.
“Against the backdrop of increasing global demand—and recognition of VBrick as the only complete, scalable and fully integrated IP video streaming solution on the market—we have surpassed even our own expectations for worldwide partner and customer growth in the last year,” said Paul Reeves, head of EMEA for VBrick (pictured). “As the global economy continues to improve, and as customers the world over realize the many business benefits inherent to the powerful IP video streaming solutions that we bring to market, we’re confident that we can advance our global position even more aggressively in the years ahead.”
Garland Partners, headquartered in Nuneaton, Warwickshire in the UK, is a partner focused on delivering end-to-end live streaming, Internet TV, mobile TV, events, IPTV and broadcast services. VBrick has also grown its relationship with proAV, a reseller of professional and enterprise-class video technology with offices in Egham, Birmingham and Bolton in the UK.
Visualdis, part of the Infodis Group, is a French IT solutions distributor headquartered in Villepointe, focused exclusively on corporate broadcast and professional video solutions. Visualdis maintains a network of dozens of reseller partners in France who sell VBrick solutions.
With offices in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt and Morocco, value added distributor FVC is widening VBrick’s customer footprint in the Middle East and North Africa. VBrick says that its brand awareness and customer growth in Southern Africa is a result of the company’s partnership with Kathea, a South Africa-based distributor.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates VBrick’s ongoing commitment to the global market. It also reaffirms our top-of-mind position for both partners and customers who need innovative and powerful IP video streaming solutions that emphasize how video can drive greater business results for both,” said Doug Howard, VBrick’s chief executive officer. “We will continue to aggressively execute our worldwide growth strategy and look forward to continued success.”
