Business News for 7th October 2014 :: Industry leaders join Cloudamour at the launch of a visionary ‘Modern Business’ technology centre
At a glittering launch event last Thursday, Cloudamour was joined by an array of industry leaders to formally open its state-of-the-art technology centre in Watford. The ‘Customer Immersion Experience (CIE)’, will provide businesses with a unique opportunity to get ‘hands-on’ with the very latest technologies and devices from Microsoft, Nokia, Jabra, Lifesize and Epson, amongst others.
Cloudamour founder Mitchell Feldman (pictured right) welcomed over 100 guests including Richard Harrington MP.
Richard Harrington, MP for Watford, formally opened the centre saying “Having been in industry for over 28 years before becoming an MP, I’m fully aware of what it’s like to start, run and grow a business. Cloudamour is a company that is well ahead of the game because of the pure vision of the team. I am very proud to be associated with you and I wholeheartedly congratulate you on launching this new technology centre today, which will help other businesses understand the role of technology immeasurably.”
Representatives from an array of blue-chip organisations - including Marks & Spencer, Warner Bros, INC Direct, Global Mutual, Wessex Water, High Commission of Canada and Absolute Publishing – attended the event. Senior Directors from Microsoft and Jabra were also present to show their support.
Glen Woolaghan, SMB Director of Microsoft UK commented “Being able to experience technology hands-on is a very important part of understanding the real day-to-day benefits it can offer a business, and its users. Cloudamour have encapsulated that perfectly with this stunning new centre and will make it possible for hundreds of companies to reimagine what a modernised business can look like.”
Visitors to the centre can immerse themselves in a number of every-day business scenarios demonstrating how modern, cutting-edge technology can change the way people work through greater mobility and capability. These ‘hands-on experiences include playing with ‘Interactive Walls’, using the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3, seeing a stunning High Definition Video Conferencing suite in action, and more. The scenarios also reveal how IT cost can be significantly reduced and competitive advantage gained.
Cloudamour estimate that over 200 businesses will visit the centre in the next 12 months alone. Mitchell Feldman, Cloudamour’s CEO & Founder, explains “We are cloud evangelists and we’re passionate about technology.

We have created an amazing environment that will inspire any business to transform, to achieve more and to outpace their competition. We can show them a true blueprint for the ‘Modern Business’.”
