PARIS, September 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
A European leader in distance learning solutions, CrossKnowledge is opening its first office in New York, on Broadway, on September 24, 2012. The company is already active in the United States with more than fifteen clients including DPT Laboratories, Schneider Electric and Sodexo and through major partnerships, such as the one signed with the American Management Association (AMA).
The French company, founded in 2000, has established itself in less than ten years in Europe (Belgium, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland) and in Asia. Today, it generates 50% of its revenue internationally. By opening its New York office, CrossKnowledge is confirming its desire to grow in the United States. Over the next 12 to 18 months, it aims to work directly with 40 clients.
Mickaël Ohana, CEO and co-founder of CrossKnowledge, is heading the development of the company in the United States with a team of four sales and project managers. "Setting up our own office in New York is a very important stage in the company's international development. By establishing a presence in the U.S.A., CrossKnowledge is demonstrating its commitment to be a local partner for its clients and partners in North America," Mickaël Ohana said.
In addition to the performance of its solutions, CrossKnowledge's strength lies in the quality of its training content, which is acclaimed by American users. CrossKnowledge offers more than 15,000 e-learning resources in management and leadership, available in 16 languages and developed by CrossKnowledge Faculty, a team of the best professors and authors from the most internationally renowned business schools, such as Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, IMD, HEC and ESSEC. "Our solutions incorporate exclusive learning formats and high added-value content, thus guaranteeing an excellent utilization rate. This is an important point as regards the U.S. e-learning market, which, although mature, still suffers from low utilization rates," Mickaël Ohana said.
CrossKnowledge has been selected among the Top 20 Learning Portal Companies in 2012 by Trainingindustry.com, the U.S. website that is a reference in the world of corporate training. This recognition attests to the quality of CrossKnowledge's solutions.
