IT’S A GLOBAL MARKETPLACE

Let us help you navigate it.

OUR PROCESS

OUR EXPERTISE

TECHNOLOGY
We can help you grow your international business through country-specific websites and targeted marketing efforts.  Most companies do not realize that although their U.S. sites might be well optimized, the algorithms used internationally in search engines would not give the same results in a foreign country.  We provide the expertise to ensure you are visible to international customers.

SALES ASSISTANCE
We can provide independent sales representation as a low initial cost method to developing your country strategy.  We can seek out distributors, sales reps and customers on your behalf, freeing you up to focus on meeting your international demand.

IN COUNTRY ASSISTANCE
We have resources that can provide you with in-country offices, legal entities and assistance navigating the differing laws and restrictions found abroad.  You can have peace of mind knowing that your in-country affairs will be well taken care of until such time that your company can assume those affairs through your growth.

MARKET KNOWLEDGE
We can work with you to determine the best markets for your products or services.  It is not only important to know where you can commercialize your business abroad, we can help you determine where not to focus your resources.  Our 25 years of experience spans every continent and most major economic markets.

TRANSLATION
We can handle the translation of one document to over hundreds of documents into any of over 100 languages.  Our translation capability takes into account the various cultural differences between countries using the same language.  Don’t trust Google Translate to do what we do with human interpreters.
