October 5, 2009 (Barcelona, Spain & Mumbai, India) Universal Education Group, Western India's leading education enterprise, and Digital Samba, makers of the OnSync web conferencing solution, have announced a distribution partnership for India and certain other Asian markets.
UEG, under license with Digital Samba, will market, sell, and support OnSync products & services to educational institutions, corporate training departments, & training providers. Already, UEG and Digital Samba count Manipal Education and Ngee Ann Polytechnic as clients in the region.
Jesus S. M. Lall, CEO of Universal Education Group, said, "We are very excited to partner with Digital Samba. Not only is OnSync the industry's most powerful web conferencing & virtual classroom solution, it's also the one with the most human interface. OnSync is a particularly useful solution for a vast country like India. With OnSync, universities & other training providers can serve thousands of off-campus distance learners, maximise trainer reach and standardise delivery. Ultimately, we aim to bring the classroom to the learner's home rather than the other way round."
Robert Strobl, Director, Digital Samba, said "OnSync requires no downloads, saving learners & program managers the hassle of installation & configuration. All you need is broadband." He continued, "Broadband penetration in India is increasing exponentially, and 8-16 Mbps consumer broadband connections are now ubiquitous. Even wireless 3G data cards support 3 Mbps - more than enough for multi-point OnSync sessions."
The distribution partnership is a part of UEG's recent foray in the education technology services business. UEG plans to offer OnSync as a subscription service, with various models such as pay-per-use, monthly, or annual committements; the company will also offer the OnSync Enterprise Server license for those who prefer an on-premise deployment.
