Looking back on an ‘epic’ year

This post was written by Emily Edmunds and first appeared on the Epic blog on 21st December 2012.

In recent news, we opened our New York office in November. The expansion came just one year after our first international office opening in Rio, Brazil which has seen considerable sales growth in 2012. Combined with our growing sales in the UK, our international growth also attracted a visit from Lord Green, Minister of State for Trade and Investment, as part of Export Week. We were delighted to meet the Minister and share with him our passion for our work in learning technologies.

2012 was another strong year for recognition of our work. At the E-learning Awards in November, we won ‘e-learning company of the year’, along with four other awards for our work with three clients and our multi-device authoring tool, GoMo Learning.

Our research and consultancy division has gone from strength to strength. In 2012, we delivered two major research projects. Epic and the University of Oxford released a pilot study into the accuracy of Wikipedia compared with alternative online encyclopaedias. NHS South of England (Central) commissioned Epic to undertake an update of a previous study we undertook in 2010 into the potential benefits of mobile learning for the healthcare workforce.

As well as all the exciting project work we continue to deliver, we’re also excited about the final stages of our Brighton office refurbishment. We look forward to returning in 2013 to our brand-new office space (pictures to come in the new year).

With such a remarkable year behind us, we eagerly look forward to what 2013 will bring for Epic.

From everyone at Epic, we sincerely wish our clients, friends and readers happy holidays and a happy new year.
