and to provide personalized service.
made new friends in Mexico and Latin America when it participated as an exhibitor
at the Technology Innovation section of the V National Week PYME, from October
3 to October 7, 2005 in Mexico City, at the Centro Banamex. The event was organized
by the Department of the Economy.
Because a significant number of SMBs in the Latin America region took advantage
of TEC's software selection tools (more than 4000 in 2005), TEC was selected
as an exhibitor and speaker for the leading SMB event in Mexico.
By participating, TEC had direct contact with Mexican SMBs, and learned of the
main technological challenges faced by this segment, which is composed of 2.3
million companies. TEC also made contact with chambers of commerce, associations,
educational institutes, and other technological support centers, to create alliances
to benefit different enterprise sectors and also identified key software manufacturers
that could provide better service for Latin American demand. Elsa Soffiaturo,
TEC’s Business Development Manager, reported: “We will continue
supporting these kinds of governmental initiatives, which look to strengthening
a promising sector like SMB ... We are glad to see that in Mexico, the government
and the private sector are joining forces to get results. They have made a $45
million (USD) credit … available to SMBs to … expand their operations."
TEC believes in the potential of Latin America as a vibrant market, and will
continue initiatives to increase its value to the region’s companies.
One way that TEC currently promotes its on-line tools is through strategic alliances.
