SANAKO and Finpro Establish Global Virtual Team for Strategic Educational Programs

SANAKO and Finpro have announced the deepening and strengthening of their strategic partnership.

The companies have developed a joint key account model based on a global virtual team working to sell SANAKO solutions to educational customers worldwide.

The partnership will enable both companies to cross-utilize their current and future competence networks to sell and market SANAKO educational solutions and localized value added service offerings to Ministries of Education globally.

Finpro’s extensive geographical coverage, world class competence and experience in the globalization of businesses will strengthen SANAKO´s presence in key markets in the Americas, Europe and the Asia- Pacific region, providing significant customer benefits and giving SANAKO solutions a major competitive advantage.

In turn, joint state-of-the-art internationalization processes and the flexible and innovative virtual team structure will complement Finpro´s total offering.

Modern Technology with Localized Competence and Service

With extensive expertise in serving the educational sector, SANAKO will collaborate with Finpro to provide innovative solutions that improve managed internet-era learning outcomes in the classroom, as well as across campuses and school districts.

SANAKO CEO Jari Mielonen said the strategic partnership with Finpro – a key player in the internationalization of Finnish ICT – will bring teaching practices into the rapidly evolving era of 21st century learning.

“Our goal is to co-operate with the highest quality partners worldwide to provide value-added solutions and services for our customers. We are delighted to announce this evolving strategic partnership model developed with Finpro. We believe it heralds a new era of best-in-class competence for globalizing the SANAKO offering and extending its learning benefits worldwide.”
