We’re in a rapidly evolving industry and as a leading company we need to continue to innovate to be able to support our customers and partners in the best way possible. This is a daunting task for a small company. With 400 team members around the world we’re better equipped than most other companies in being able to invest in future products and solutions, and have significantly increased our investments in the future over the past two years
Digiflare is a company which I’ve always had the greatest respect for. Their excellence in delivering products and services has prompted Accedo to constantly do better and move faster. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know the Digilfare founders David George and Mano Kulasingam over the past year, and I’m extremely pleased to see a company which embraces the changing market environment with innovation and customer centricity in the same way as Accedo.
When we’re now merging, the most common question I get from the team is if we will do anything different after the merger.The main rationale for the merger is for us to jointly be able to continue to innovate and invest in the future of the video experience. We’re convinced that we’re just in the beginning of the video experience revolution, and customers expect us to continue to drive innovation in our area. The combined R&D teams in the merged company is about 80 people and it’s clear that together we will have significantly better possibilities of meeting the future market challenges.
Our first joint market presence will be CES 2017 and I know the team is working intensely to show the latest and greatest from the combined Accedo and Digiflare think tank. We’re extremely excited about the new possibilities that follow this merger and we’re looking forward to the market challenges in front of us. Stay tuned.
