PPDS is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with leading French distributor, ITANCIA, for the rollout of its ‘revolutionary’ range of Philips T-Line interactive displays, built and designed exclusively for education.
Founded in 1991 on the borders of Paris in Nanterre and with warehouses east of Nantes, ITANCIA is one of the fastest-growing and eco-responsible distributors in Europe, growing more than 40pc in the past three years. With 450 staff, and a 5,000-plus reseller base, the company now represents some of the world’s leading technology brands, shipping over two million products in 2020 and recording a turnover of 200 million euros.
With extensive knowledge and an unrivalled geographic reach to all levels of the French education market - from primary to higher levels - coupled with its shared beliefs and approach to providing best-in-class customer support and services during the completion of projects (deliveries in France in under 24 hours), ITANCIA was the standout partner for PPDS as it strives to enhance awareness of its solutions and achieve its ambitions to become a brand of choice for the education industry.
Fabrice Penhoat, Sales in France for PPDS, commented: “For PPDS, this important partnership with ITANCIA is the latest phase of an enhanced strategy for 2021, with education being a core focus for the business in France, and around the globe.”
He continued: “Utilising extensive market research, leading Philips professional display technology and an enviable R&D team, PPDS is committed to bringing truly innovative and future proof hardware/software solutions to market, with a clear focus on addressing and overcoming the traditional obstacles and frustrations that restrict the teaching and learning process. With Philips T-Line, we have a solution that has the power to transform the traditional classroom dynamic, bringing truly enhanced, more inspiring and engaging experiences for students and tutors alike. We needed a partner that shared these values and our passion and we’re delighted to be working with ITANCIA.”
Best in class learning
France is one of the most enviable countries in the world for providing high quality education to its residents and international students. Recently ranked fifth best in the world, the French government spent approximately 74 billion euros on this market in 2020.
Quality education plays a vital role in human, social and economic development, helping to promote gender equality and increasing a person's opportunities in life. These factors play a crucial role in the PPDS’ strategy in bringing innovative and industry advancing solutions to market, built with the future in mind.
