VOLUME ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN AND E-LEARNING SPECIALIST INOVARE
Volume, one of the UK’s leading integrated communications and innovation agencies has bolstered its instructional design capabilities with the acquisition of the staff and assets of Inovare, a leader in interactive online media programmes and e-learning solutions.
Inovare creates bespoke interactive programmes that can be applied to end sales, end-users or partner training. In contrast to ‘off-the-shelf’ packages and catalogue services, all Inovare products are made-to-measure for each client and brief. This ensures any solution reflects business culture and values, features appropriate content, is relevant to the audience and can be consumed in both a time and device-convenient fashion.
The acquisition further strengthens Volume’s Total Channel Solution – helping global clients to ‘gain’, ‘train’, ‘empower’ and ‘retain’ channel partners in over 140 countries. The Inovare Team will remain in the company’s South Devon offices and will represent a specialist hub for the creation and development of anytime, anywhere e-learning content.
The news follows the expansion of Volume’s Technology Centre based in Colombo, Sri Lanka in March; Volume’s first regional hub outside of the UK.
Chris Sykes, CEO at Volume, comments:
The acquisition of Inovare is a major coup for Volume, further strengthening our capabilities in the e-learning field. We’re excited at the possibilities not just within e-learning, but exploring how these principles of instructional design could be applied in a broader marketing and customer engagement context too.
Phil Wood, Managing Director at Inovare, comments:
The discipline of instructional design coupled with engaging, interactive content is one that is quickly becoming the secret weapon for forward-thinking businesses. We’re delighted to join Volume, a company that shares and embodies both our core values, and our multi-disciplined, collaborative approach to business, to develop even more sophisticated and innovative methods of learning content development and delivery.
