Ragtime back in France

France : German office application vendor Ragtime was historically distributed by Mindscape through its former BU Alsyd. But in the last years, Mindscape slowly but surely dropped any active distribution. Therefore, Ragtime has decided to get back more actively on French market by stopping working with Mindscape and signing a new distribution partnership with new company Infographix. Totally dedicated to Ragtime, Infographix is both a reseller and a distributor. Ragtime is so persuaded of Infographix success that it even took a 20% share of the company. Which may lead, in case of success, to Infographix becoming Ragtime subsidiary in the country. One will see if this will happen in the next months.
