New Delhi: Knimbus, a cloud based information search and collaboration platform connecting creators and users of Scientific, Technical and Medical (STM) knowledge, outlined its growth strategy in international markets through alliances.
Knimbus has inked strategic reseller agreements with two STM information market majors – WTCox in United States and SAM – Standards and More in EU. These alliances enhance the reach of the Knimbus platform and make the service available to users in South Asia, USA and Europe now.
Knimbus will now be able to address over 50% of world’s researchers and a market worth over $22 billion. The North American market is the world’s largest for STM information valued at over $13 billion and more than 22% of the world’s researchers.
The European market represents the world second largest with a value of close to $9 billion and over 30% of the world’s researchers. A Knimbus survey of 470 Indian researchers had indicated they would like to collaborate internationally. This alliance will also satisfy that demand by enabling researchers in India to collaborate with their peers in USA & EU.
Through this alliance, SAM and WTCox also will be able to leverage the power of the Knimbus platform to provide their users a seamless research experience.
WTCox is a full service subscription management vendor for academic, public, medical and special libraries. SAM is an information specialist with a 20 years legacy in the German, Swiss and Austrian markets for technical and engineering information and integration in corporate IT structures.
“Since the value of scientific information depends on its use, Knimbus helps make this knowledge easier to use and share. That is exactly what Knimbus brings to our alliance partners. With Knimbus, our partner companies can serve their customers better, by providing fast and convenient access to content that further creates opportunities for renewals and cross selling,” Knimbus CEO & Founder Rahul Agarwalla said.
A leader in the India market with the most comprehensive, scalable and flexible technology platform, Knimbus has been enabled at over 600 of the best research and academic institutions across India.
The Knimbus platform is being accessed by over 50,000 researchers at major academic and research institutions like IITs, IISERs, CSIR Labs, CDOT, CDAC and various State and Central Universities.
