SMART has increased its market share to 58.2 per cent in the UK interactive whiteboard (IWB) market. This is according to figures from the DTC (Decision Tree Consulting) analysis of Q2 2005, which was the third largest quarter ever for IWB sales.
Out of 23,654 whiteboards sold during the quarter, Steljes sold 13,772 SMART Boards, outselling all other competitors put together.
As the leading distributor of interactive whiteboards and sole distributor of SMART Technologies in the UK, Steljes recently shipped its 100,000th SMART Board. The company has pioneered the adoption of new technologies - including interactive whiteboards, plasma screens and projectors. Its innovative approach to technology ensures that any new products purchased make a material difference to how a user lives, learns or works.
SMART is taking market share away from its nearest competitors because its hardware and software design is preferred by users, said Martin Large, CEO, Steljes. This is unsurprising given that SMART pioneered interactive whiteboards and fundamentally understands the peculiarities of large form technologies.
The UK is leading the worldwide whiteboard market in terms of penetration, with sectors such as education demanding high volumes, said Colin Messenger from the Decision Tree Consultancy. We predict a continuous growth in sales, due to the awareness created by organisations such as Steljes.
