AUTHOR: Inavate

Imago Group has signed a distribution agreement with Watchitoo, a provider of online collaboration tools. The European distributor will be making Watchitoo available to resellers via a software-as-a-service model.

The Watchitoo platform allows up to 25 participants to take part in a ‘virtual’ video conference simultaneously, whilst being observed by a wider audience.

Peter Nice, head of new business at Imago Group, said: "The Watchitoo platform is very flexible. It can be integrated onto a company website to encourage community collaboration, host conferences and live events; it uses Flash to deliver content and also features an accelerator to support live HD video to android smartphones, iPhones and iPads; and it can be branded, allowing users to invite third parties to take part in conferences."

"We are excited to partner with Imago to expand Watchitoo’s distribution worldwide," said Rony Zarom, CEO of Watchitoo. "We think there is a great need for our innovative and uniquely engaging platform"

Marketing Watchitoo via a SaaS model, Imago will be targeting its network of resellers throughout Europe and South Africa for whom there will be commissions on subscriptions to the Watchitoo platform. The minimum contract for the standard monthly rental packages will be over 12 months but single event packages for large audience events will also be available and resellers will have the opportunity to provide AV set-up and moderation services as part of the package.
