TORONTO, Canada /Publishers Newswire/ — North Plains Systems, Inc., the world’s leading provider of digital asset management (DAM) and video asset management (VAM) software solutions, today announced ambitious plans to expand its global channel of strategic partners over the coming months. Due to the increased demand of its TeleScope(TM) digital asset management platform, North Plains will significantly grow its European base of technology partners, brand-name systems integrators, and a top-tier portfolio of national and regional technology resellers.

The global demand for Digital Asset Management systems is expected to triple by 2013, according to a new forecast by ABI Research. “The recent proliferation of digital media content, especially video, and the rise of portable devices for viewing it is a key contributor. We can add the widespread availability of broadband data services to distribute it, and the need for systems that can store and deliver that content to the right people at the right time.”

Building upon existing momentum in the region, North Plains will further enhance its support of European customers through an integrated reseller network composed of “best-in-class” technology partners, brand-name systems integrators, and a top-tier portfolio of national and regional technology resellers. North Plains will announce these strategic vendor partnerships over the coming months.

“Partners will be hand-picked to meet some very strict criteria,” said Rick Coope, Director, European Sales. Chosen firms will exhibit extensive domain knowledge within North Plains’ target markets, including print, publishing, broadcast, media, advertising, design and marketing agencies, as well as demonstrate considerable experience in digital asset management configuration and integration in education environments.

“Our focus is on building the strategic partnerships that will deliver our advanced solutions to businesses that need their legacy asset management systems replaced or an entirely new one implemented. We can better serve our customers and their needs if we increase our local partners,” he added.
