Sparkol, creator of leading whiteboard explainer video software VideoScribe and the recently launched StoryPix, has today announced an expansion of its professional services division and offerings.

After expanding its sales team in Europe and Australia last year due to increased customer demand, the company has invested in its range of professional services which includes video production, online and on-site training, the option of a full suite of branded livery and access to a global network of professional illustrators and graphic designers to create custom content.

Services include:

  • Brand Animation – the in-house team works closely with organizations from initial storyboarding through to final product to bring company and brand messages to life and capture audience attention.
  • Online and On-site training – Sparkol’s training team offers tailored in-depth training to ensure all departments make the most of the software.
  • Custom Illustration – the global network of artists provide unique animations for a range of business materials for events, sales opportunities or new campaigns.
  • The Animation Starter Kit – bringing together every element of Sparkol’s experience and expertise, this package provides every user with custom animated templates, illustrations, music and training to beat the competition to market, increase engagement and revenue.

Zoe Taylor, Sparkol’s CEO said, “2018 is a big year for Sparkol. Multiple new products, new international channel partners in the education and corporate sectors, and the expansion of our team and services to meet international demand simply proves the speed of growth of learning, selling and interacting through video. We continue to lead this effort and this announcement supports the considerable work put in by our services team and partners.”

With video the number one format for marketing and social engagement and 88% of businesses stating that video is an important part of their marketing strategy, Sparkol has seen a rise in demand for its professional services as well as business licenses. Branded video content is the most memorable and preferred content format across all consumer age groups.

“Commercial, educational, not-for-profit and even community organizations are turning to Sparkol to provide vendor-backed video marketing and social media content with a quick turnaround. We’ve seen an uplift in companies wanting to produce custom content incorporating their brand image and voice to help them stand out from the competition,” said Richard Jenkins, Commercial Director at Sparkol.

Brands that use Sparkol’s products and services include some of the world’s largest car manufacturers, technology vendors and management consulting firms, charities and local and national governments.

More Than Half of Sub-Saharan Africa to Be Connected to Mobile by 2025, Finds New GSMA Study17.7.2018 10:00Tiedote

More than half the population of Sub-Saharan Africa will be subscribed to a mobile service by 2025, according to the latest edition of the GSMA’s Mobile Economy report series, published at the GSMA ‘Mobile 360 – Africa’ event being held in Kigali this week. The new report forecasts that there will be 634 million unique mobile subscribers1 across Sub-Saharan Africa by 2025, equivalent to 52 per cent of the population, up from 444 million (44 per cent) at the end of last year. The report also calculates that the mobile ecosystem will add more than $150 billion in value to Sub-Saharan Africa’s economy by 2022, equivalent to almost 8 per cent of regional GDP. “For many citizens across the region, particularly those living in rural areas, a mobile phone is not just a communications device but also the primary channel for getting online and a vital tool for improving their lives,” commented John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Officer at the GSMA. “More needs to be done to extend connectivity to th

Norsk Titanium Marks Milestone in U.S. Production17.7.2018 10:00Tiedote

The University of Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory (NDTL), Norsk Titanium US, Inc. (Norsk), Pratt & Whitney and TURBOCAM International are collaborating to develop and test additively manufactured turbomachinery components. This collaboration will focus on exploring the applicability of Norsk’s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) material to turbomachinery applications. As part of this effort, NDTL will test an additively manufactured integrally bladed rotor (IBR) produced and inspected to meet the applicable quality specifications used in Pratt & Whitney’s current turbomachinery components. The team has completed the initial phase of testing, with TURBOCAM International conducting machining trials of Norsk’s RPD™ material, and Pratt & Whitney successfully inspecting the material to the same specification as forged turbomachinery components. The material’s manufacturing qualities were evaluated for applicability to TURBOCAM’s precision milling processes. “We were very pleased with the

GSMA Finds That Consumers in Developing Countries Are Hard Hit by High Spectrum Prices17.7.2018 09:00Tiedote

Better spectrum pricing policies are needed in developing countries to improve the economic and social welfare of the billions of people that remain unconnected to mobile broadband services, according to a new report, ‘Spectrum Pricing in Developing Countries’, released by the GSMA today at the Mobile 360 – Africa conference in Kigali. The study reveals that spectrum prices in developing countries are, on average, more than three times higher than in developed countries, when income is taken into account. This high spectrum pricing is a major roadblock to increasing mobile penetration. Authored by GSMA Intelligence, the study also found that governments are playing an active role in increasing spectrum prices to maximise state revenues from spectrum licensing. High spectrum prices are linked to countries with high levels of sovereign debt, and alarmingly average reserve prices in spectrum auctions are more than five times higher in developing countries than in developed, once income is
