Abbyy, a provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies and professional services, is increasing its presence in Mexico and Central America, the company said in a statement.
The company is hiring a regional director and forming a regional society, as well as developing a linguistic adaptation of its solutions for Spanish speakers.
The company has appointed Ruben Suazo as sales director for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.
Additionally, the company is planning on opening an office in Mexico.
"In a few years the organizations in Mexico and Central America have seen their businesses move basically from regional operations to having an international scope. This important transition has emphasized the relevance of better ways to share and capture information, and better ways of communicating," said Bill Kouzi, VP of sales for the distribution group in the US.
Abbyy is also looking to strengthen its current alliances in the region to foster the penetration of products in the SME, enterprise and individual markets. This objective includes expanding the current supply of products for partners and signing up new agreements with wholesale distributors and retailers focused on SMEs and the corporate market.
