Valamis helps companies succeed in the work-life transformation by utilizing the digitalization of learning. Fast global growth and the new office in England support this goal by improving Valamis’ local presence, particularly in the banking and financial sectors.
London, August 7, 2017. Valamis, a forerunner in the digital transformation of learning, opened an office in England in August. The new office contributes to the company’s long-term plan for international growth. The location of the new office — Europe’s largest tech community for finance, Level39 — is crucial to the company’s international expansion, and the London office will coordinate its global sales.
The fast transformation of the banking and finance sector, new innovations, and legislative amendments require companies to train their personnel. Companies will need to train their staff to accommodate new legislation, such as the EU GDPR, and the Valamis – Learning Experience Platform is a convenient solution for this. The benefits of Valamis, compared to other solutions on the market, are its flexibility and comprehensive analytics in learning, which enables career-long learning paths. Valamis combines two top areas of Finnish expertise—training and technology—and helps companies tap into the benefits of digitalization.
“Our international growth has been quick, and we have invested in local presence, because it builds added-value into our already competitive solution. The location of the new office supports our global sales and helps us to reach new customers, particularly in the finance sector,” says Janne Hietala, Chief Commercial Officer at Valamis.
Hietala will move to work in London from the company’s headquarters in Joensuu. Valamis is planning to recruit new personnel locally. Earlier this year, Valamis established a subsidiary in Wiesbaden, Germany. In summer 2015, it opened an office in Boston, USA.
Valamis is an internationally growing IT company that specializes in the digitalization of learning. The company was listed in Gartner’s 2016 Market Guide for Corporate Learning Suites as a Representative Vendor of the product Valamis. Valamis – Learning Experience Platform helps customers convert the benefits of digital transformation into a competitive advantage. Valamis’ customers are large organizations in both the private and public sectors. With its headquarters in Joensuu, Finland, Valamis has offices in Finland, Germany, UK, the US and Russia.
