Successful entrepreneur and industry expert Ravi Kumar has an impressive range of experience spanning several continents. Currently the chairman of Zanec Software Technologies, he was previously CTO and Executive Director, Product Strategy at iSOFT. Ravi, who works between India and the UK, is widely respected for his progressive thinking on software development and the importance of marketing. He has a keen appreciation of the value of new, and emerging, media as essential tools which the healthcare IT sector needs to embrace in order to form relationships with customers and increase their sales.

“Marketing and communications are being transformed by social media and the internet. The audience for traditional media, such as newspapers and magazines, remain important but are fragmenting. Highland Marketing helps healthcare IT companies make potent use of all the exciting opportunities which now exist to get effective messages to existing and potential customers.”
