Paul Seiden, Artel’s Director of International and Channel Sales tells Vinita Bhatia that high level decisions in the employee-owned company are made by the Management Committee to ensure development of innovative product lines
At the 2016 NAB Show, Artel presented its new corporate identity. What does this new identity entail and what newness can your customers and channel partners expect?
Artel has gone through many changes over the last 18 months and is now an Employee-Owned corporation. We wanted to change our corporate identity to display a more innovative technology company. The look should embody what you will see coming out of product development in future months.
When Artel says that it has transitioned from a privately held company to an employee-owned one, what exactly does this mean?
Employees now own stock in Artel and high level decisions are made by our Management Committee, ensuring the development of innovative product lines and providing a long-term sustainable business model for our existing and future customers.
Your company introduced Artel Care to meet the growing needs of telcos and broadcast customers to migrate from fibre to IP-based media transport solutions. Are there similar programs in the pipeline that Artel plans for its channels partners?
Artel Care was the first of our new Services offerings. Additional information is available on our website at www.artel.com/services. We will continue to develop Artel Care and other programs for customers and channel partners. We look forward to sharing these details in the future.
How will Indian channel partners be impacted by the newly introduced Artel Care?
Currently, Artel sells directly to Indian customers. Channel partners interested in working with Artel can visit us at BroadcastAsia 2016, or contact me.
