SANAKO Brazil established

The establishment of a regional office in Brazil will ensure the provision of SANAKO live learning solutions in the rapidly growing Brazilian market.

Claudia Scheiner Franco, the CEO of Scheiner Solutions and Director of SANAKO Brazil, said she has great expectations for future market development in Brazil. “The government’s decision to make Brazil a bilingual country with two official languages, Portuguese and Spanish, creates an increasing need for advanced language learning technology in educational institutions,” she pointed out.

As a distributor of Smart interactive whiteboards, Scheiner Solutions works with a large number of resellers and customers across the country. “We can benefit from this structure for offering SANAKO services and solutions in all regions in Brazil. The culture of using technology in language teaching is still young, and there will be a lot of language labs to implement,” she added.

Raimo Körkkö, Sanako Senior Vice President for EMEA and Latin America said the Brazil market for educational technology is one of the fastest growing in the world, and presents a remarkable opportunity for Sanako, a world leader in language learning technology. “Brazil has a relatively young population and middle class with a growth rate of 30% per year, which affects the country’s interest and need to invest in education. Language teaching will have a prominent role in educational institutions, as the law obliging schools to offer Spanish as a second language comes into effect in 2010,” Körkkö added.
