Arkadin Expands Globally to Meet Rising Demand for Collaboration Services
PARIS, Nov 08, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --

announced that it is expanding its global presence, with new
operations this year in Mexico, Poland, the Czech Republic, and
Taiwan. Arkadin operates in 30 countries, with over 1,000 employees
located close to clients. According to leading analysts, it has the
strongest growth record among service providers worldwide. Additional
