SAO PAULO, BRAZIL, Jan 09, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Arkadin, one of the world's largest and fastest growing
collaboration service providers, announced today that it is
experiencing strong growth for its audio and web collaboration
offerings in Brazil. The demand is being fueled by a robust business
environment that requires businesses to collaborate more to compete
in an increasingly mobile and flattened global business economy.
"Since establishing operations in Sao Paulo in 2010, we're growing
more than 20% each quarter," says Thomas Valantin, Arkadin's Managing
Director of Latin America. "We expect continued strong performance
and are making massive investments in people and infrastructure to
meet the region's long-term needs for collaboration services."
According to leading analysts, audio and web conferencing demand in
Brazil is surging. In its 2012 Latin America Audio & Web Conferencing
Service Market & Forecast, Wainhouse Research estimates 54% growth in
web conferencing revenue between 2011 and 2013. Audio conferencing
minutes are expected to increase 72% from 2011 to 2013.
"Brazil is the world's 6th largest economy," says Mr. Valantin. "In
addition to a vibrant local business sector a huge concentration of
multi-nationals are located here. Our complete range of audio and web
collaboration offerings equips these businesses to succeed in a 24/7
