Outstanding growth for local e-learning company
Global e-learning company Kineo based in Queens Road but with offices in Europe, America and Asia has announced record revenues for its UK and US operations in 2011. Despite, or perhaps because of the gloomy economic outlook, sales have increased by over 30% in these markets.
Training is one of the activities that companies sometimes scale back in hard times but the requirement doesn’t go away and e-learning can provide a cost effective solution. E-learning also allows learners to proceed at their own pace with much greater flexibility than the classroom can provide.
Last year Kineo opened offices in China, South Africa and Sweden and has plans for a new office in Australia in 2012. Its latest set of results represents seven consecutive years of revenue growth which has made Kineo one of the leading e-learning companies in the world and an inspirational success story for Brighton & Hove. It was voted the ‘must see’ company at the 2012 Learning Technologies conference in January and one of the top ten global learning and technology websites.
China in particular has proved to be fertile ground and the company now has over 70 staff working from Guangzhou and Shanghai
