Woburn, MA - Inmagic, Inc., a leading developer of knowledge management and special library software, announces its expansion in the European marketplace through the addition of three new dealerships. Adding to Inmagic's existing base of European dealerships (Esprit Soutron Partnership Limited in the UK, EPMS in the Netherlands and Doc6 S.A. in Spain), are Tamil, of Paris, France; Cenfor International Srl, of Genoa, Italy; and IVS, which is located just outside of Brussels, Belgium.
"Europe is a very important area for us", says Dinah Voorhies, Inmagic's Channels Manager. "With the arrival of corporate intranets and the Web, information is increasingly a global business. Multi-national companies look to us to support their multi-country information resources. We warmly welcome these new business partners."
States Alice Keefer, Inmagic's Europe-based Relations Manager for European distributors, "As a transplanted American living in Spain for 18 years, I've often had to bridge the differences between two distinct business cultures. In many cases US companies see their European operations solely as an extension to their home-based activities. Therefore, it is gratifying to see how seriously Inmagic is taking their European expansion. They've paid close attention to the European dealer's concerns and have shown flexibility in responding with both product development and modification of internal procedures."
Tamil focuses on automating information centers and specialized libraries, providing the complete Inmagic software product line as well as services that include hardware, networks, intranet server deployment, data conversion, support, training, and consulting. A company with dual expertise -- both in information management and in IT issues -- Tamil promotes Inmagic software solutions as ideal for information specialists interested in embracing new technologies. The company is the second Inmagic dealer to provide a local language translation of Inmagic's flagship product, DB/TextWorks (Doc6 S.A. came out with a Spanish version in 1997). Explains Frédéric Demians, Director, Tamil, "It was easy to translate Inmagic's product into a French version. Because it is easy to work with Inmagic, we got the project done in record time."
Cenfor International Srl consults with information managers, regularly scanning international markets to propose original and value-added services for libraries. The company offers training and provides products such as online and CD-ROM databases, document delivery software, and the complete Inmagic line of library automation software. "Inmagic is a company with whom it is very easy to have a working partnership”, explains Anna Merlo, president. "Using Inmagic software, we've been able to get customers up and running quickly with no problems."
IVS is a leading Benelux information provider of knowledge and reference databases as well as instant document delivery services and full text solutions. The company's content publishing expertise enables customers to rely on seamlessly integrated Internet/intranet and/or CD/DVD-ROM based information solutions. Explains Koen Vanneste, Information Director of IVS, "We chose Inmagic because we think their technology is cutting-edge and best positioned to handle the current and developing requirements faced by our clients and customers."
"Europe is a strong area of growth for the products and services that make up the information infrastructure", states Phil Green, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inmagic. "We see the European market expanding along a steady, upward curve over the coming years. With our DB/TextWorks product's ability to handle unlimited amounts of data such as text and images. Inmagic, in conjunction with our European dealerships, is well positioned to provide a core resource for companies for years to come."
