Inside Bay Area - The Smart Document Capture System Athento Lands in Argentina with Lakaut SA
Lakaut SA becomes the first official distributor of Spanish software company in Argentina, adding to an extensive global partner network. The goal pursued by the agreement is to be closer to Argentine companies that require Document Capture Software and ECM software in general, so customers now have the direct attention of sales representatives in the South American country and also enjoy a backup technical team in their own country.
For Jose Luis de la Rosa, CEO of the Athento product manufacturer - "Although we already have our headquarters in America located in Silicon Valley, our partners are the way we maintain a close relationship with our customers," -. Athento already has customers in other countries in the region such as Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Chile, but - "The market in Argentina is fairly large and it requires a close collaborator to meet your needs, and Lakaut is a company with the experience and leadership required to bring Athento's intelligent document capture to this market"- says de la Rosa.
For Guillermo Cantini, President of Lakaut "Adding to our portfolio of services an innovative software such as Athento provides high value to our customers as we incorporate the digitization of documents, tools to label, classify or assign people and processes to documents intelligently and using semantic technology, achieving time efficiency in search and, at the same time, in each work circuit".
