Scala it appears now has 25 full-time employees in India based in new offices in the International Technology Park (ITP) in Bangalore courtesy of (a rather quiet) acquisition of former reseller / joint venture partner Digifour Technologies.Digifour Technologies (a Scala reseller in the country for five years or so and a joint venture partner ‘Scala Digi4 Pvt. Ltd.’ since August 2008) effectively became ‘Scala India’ with immediate effect a few weeks ago we believe.
That joint venture and India in general has always been managed out of Scala’s EMEA office managed by Oscar Elizaga and we understand that this will continue with the General Manager of Scala India reporting directly to Oscar. There’s also rumour that Oscar will soon take over the running of Latin America as well as his duties within EMEA (he is after all Argentinian and is fluent in several languages).
What Scala have ended up with is more folks in India alone than many digital signage software companies have worldwide!
