Dr. Frank Habermann, Managing Director of imc (UK) Learning Ltd., expects exciting growth in Great Britain: “The market for learning management solutions in the UK is highly mature and we are therefore convinced that imc products and services will be attractive to UK customers. Our growing customer base, not only in German speaking countries, but also in Canada, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the UK shows that imc is prized for the highly technical, professional and cost effective solutions we offer. We are looking forward to competing in a truly global marketplace. Our customers and successful projects are our best reference. In future we will be able to serve our British clients even better and furthermore to expand our customer base in the UK. We expect our sales team in the UK will be supplemented by new UK-based consultants within the next 1-2 years”.
Dr. Wolfgang Kraemer, speaker of the board of imc AG adds “Together with Germany, Great Britain is the most important market for learning management solutions in Europe. Although we have not yet been present in the UK with our own office, our discussions in the run-up to ‘Learning Technologies 2007’ made it evident that customers and competitors are already well aware of IMC. For us, the new UK subsidiary is a first step to the Anglo-American market. Moreover a US office of imc is already planned”.
