Avantica recognized Open Mountain’s success managing distributed teams and named Open Mountain a preferred partner in 2009. The two companies have partnered on a number of important initiatives in the health care, e-learning and mobile industries.
“We help customers develop products working hand-in-hand with each customer as part of their leadership team,” said Bob Benedict, CEO of Open Mountain. “We look forward to applying our leadership and management experience on behalf of all of Avantica’s customers.”
