ABEO (ISIN code: FR0013185857 – Ticker: ABEO) and VOGO (ISIN code: FR0011532225 - Ticker: ALVGO) are combining their expertise to deliver a new service offering for ABEO's clients (sports centres, leisure centres, gymnasiums, rock climbing centres, schools, etc.). The new solution, which is to undergo commercial validation in the first half of 2019, could ultimately pave the way to an international distribution agreement.
ABEO and VOGO have committed to developing a tailored offering of service specifically for ABEO's clients by combining their know-how. The service will be based on the VOGO SPORT solution, to which will be added a range of equipment (cameras, Wi-Fi access points, etc.). This will enable the roll-out of a turnkey solution for the live broadcasting of audiovisual content. The new technological solution is aimed at rounding out ABEO's offer of products and services for a diverse range of professional clients.
Under the partnership agreement, VOGO has committed to providing both the technological solution and training for the ABEO teams in charge of marketing and sales, installation and level 1 technical support.
ABEO will be asking a panel of its clients if they wish to install and test the new solution during the first half of this year, with a view to validating its concrete and mutual benefits. At the end of this period, the partnership could give rise to an international distribution agreement covering ABEO's markets.
