The first day of ISE 2018 saw two visual collaboration specialists, Viju and VisionsConnected, announcing they have joined forces to form a single brand identity as Kinly, making the new company among the largest audiovisual system integrators in the world.
Headquartered in Amsterdam, the combined company now has corporate and public customers in over 120 countries from established office locations throughout EMEA, the US and APAC.
Kinly’s management team includes the expertise and experience of both companies with the former Viju CEO, Odd Sverre Østlie, becoming Kinly’s CEO. VisionsConnected’s founder and CEO,
Raymond Alves, will spearhead Kinly’s solutions and services development in his new role as chief solutions officer.
Odd Sverre Østlie said: “The opportunity to create a world-leading global visual collaboration specialist under a fresh new brand that builds on the best of two already highly successful companies is a wonderful opportunity for us and our clients. Our brand promise is ‘Working Together. Everywhere.’
“Our role is to provide a seamless and reliable experience that enables people to work together effectively and with ease, wherever they are and regardless of whether they need to connect to one person or 100.
Customer experience is one of our top priorities; as one of the world’s leading specialists our aim is to harness our collective talent, expertise and experience to make collaboration between people and organisations.”
Kinly’s CSO Raymond Alves explained: “The workplace is changing as traditional barriers that used to be defined by time and space become less relevant. The array of video communications, audiovisual and collaboration technologies available can be bewildering, which is why it is so important to have a trusted partner when it comes to bringing all these technologies together to provide a solution that is right for you.
Kinly is committed to the continued development of our collaboration solutions and services to help you improve workflow and get the very best out of your business.”
