lynda.com Expands Sales Territory into Southeast Asia
SYDNEY --(Business Wire)--
an online education company with more than four million individual and
enterprise members worldwide, announced today that it has expanded its
sales territory to Southeast Asia. Its video tutorial library-which
provides the latest training in computer software, design, business
skills and many other topics relevant in fast-changing work and school
settings-will now be offered to corporate and academic institutions in
Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.
"Institutions worldwide are turning to lynda.com to provide employees
and students with access to a comprehensive, ever-growing library of
online courses that help them achieve their personal and professional
goals," said Mark Fletcher, head of APAC sales for lynda.com. "The
lynda.com library offers an alternative to sending employees to
expensive off-site seminars or in-person training with consultants, by
allowing members to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule."
The expanded Southeast Asian sales territory builds on the existing
lynda.com Australian and New Zealand sales operation, which serves and
supprts more than 350 corporate, government and academic clients in
those regions. Based in California, the company expanded into Australia
and New Zealand in 2012. Enterprise members in APAC include top-tier
corporations and renowned academic institutions such as Optus, Fuji
Xerox, Fonterra, News Corp (News - Alert) Australia, Tata Consultancy, The University
of Sydney and Auckland University of Technology. Other global companies
that use the online video library include Google, Yahoo!, Apple and
Adobe (News - Alert).
Singapore Polytechnic allows its students to access to more than 2,300
lynda.com courses from libraries on campus and also provides teachers
and faculty with tutorials on subjects like web design, programming,
productivity, photography and animation, as well as software like Adobe
Photoshop and Microsoft (News - Alert) Office.
