Axway Expands Brazilian Market Presence to Offer Axway 5 Suite in Latin America
Latin American headquarters opened in response to increased demand for Axway API Management, B2B and MFT products
PHOENIX - September 17, 2013 -
Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a leader in governing the flow of data, announced today the expansion of its Latin America presence by establishing its regional headquarters in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The expansion of the company in Brazil results from the company terminating its exclusive distributor arrangement and working with its former reseller to transition all of the customers to direct relationships with Axway's newly expanded team. This will help meet the increasing demand across all major industry sectors for locally delivered solutions of the company's Axway 5 Suite, and its unique ability to combine application integration with B2B, MFT, and API Management to help companies govern the flow of data across enterprises, cloud and mobile. This investment will bolster Axway resources in the region with additional sales, service and support personnel to better enable the company to service its existing 300 customers in Brazil and increase its market share over the coming years.
As enterprises seek to extend their businesses to embrace new cloud and mobile channels, the need to govern the flow of data across enterprises is necessary whether the data is delivered via B2B, MFT, API or web services. Axway's unique API Management platform combined with its SOA governance capabilities overcomes the limitations of traditional integration middleware products, which were not sufficiently designed to govern data flows beyond the enterprise edge. Armed with industry-leading solutions of the Axway 5 Suite, organizations in Latin America will have the ability to create a greater market differentiation and competitive advantage for themselves.
"This strategic expansion of our presence in Latin America is the latest step in our ongoing investment in the region. We are expanding our team in Brazil with the opening of our local headquarters to service our existing customers, but will also look to sign up additional distribution partners as we further build our customer base across all major industry verticals," said Christophe Fabre, CEO, Axway. "We'll be able to provide customers in Latin America with greater levels of service and increased access to our broad portfolio of solutions, resulting in improved business productivity in the local market."
Axway currently has 300 customers in Brazil and has ambitious plans to grow this number over the next few years, via a combination of direct and indirect partner channel strategies. Customers in Brazil include Boa Vista Serviços, FM Logistic and TIVIT. The company will be hosting Connections Brasil 2013 on September 24th, an annual customer event designed to share the Axway strategy and direction of its product offerings with customers and partners.
"The decision to choose Axway products and services was made because of its solutions quality and security, but also because of its flexibility, customized system and trust in its products and support team in Brazil," said André Grizotto, Technical Support Coordinator at FM Logistic Brazil. "Our clients move a tremendous volume of merchandise which has to be distributed with precision and punctuality throughout Brazil. It was vital that we find a reliable and trusted technology partner that could meet our needs now and in the future. Axway's decision to establish its regional headquarters here is a further testimony of their commitment to Brazil."
