"Working with Simon and his team of experienced AV professionals has been a great experience for us. Its has been important we could always rely on their expertise, their commitment and willingness to help, also in critical circumstances."
"Datapath has been selling in LATAM for over 10 years and have built a loyal, customer base, however, we felt we needed an active, local presence in order to accelerate growth as well as provide a more hands-on support to our existing customers. We made a strategic choice to select Footprint Latin America to achieve this. Their team has the perfect blend of commercial acumen combined with technical knowledge of Pro A/V products, making them the perfect choice for our technical product set. Since signing with Footprint for LATAM-wide coverage, our sales have grown at an average of 55% year on year; with 2019 currently forecasted for 91% growth. I would not hesitate to recommend Footprint to any Pro A/V manufacturer that wants to take their LATAM sales to the next level."
"Over the last six months HRT has successfully emerged from the start-up phase and entered a growth & establishment pursuit - says Mario Rimini, Director of Sales of HRT – our plans from this point onward foresee a rapid sales expansion into more regions and territories while remaining an agile organization, strongly focused on reinforcing the Innovation Leadership position earned in the wireless presentation market. Balancing the drive to expand and the commitment to stay focused on R&D was not an easy call – continues Stefano- and when we looked at Latin America as a new market, we immediately understood that Footprint would help us solve the equation overnight. A team of proficient professionals located in key countries nurturing long term relationships with top integrators and distributors, that’s the compelling value that we recognize in Footprint our gateway to Latin America for many years to come."
