Surecomp, a provider of global trade solutions for the financial services community, has expanded its regional support and development centre in Santiago, Chile. Replacing Surecomp’s previous site in Santiago, the expanded centre will serve Surecomp’s growing client base throughout Latin America, and will integrate with its network of regional research and development (R&D) facilities in the US, the UK, Israel and China.
Offering a range of regional sales activities, pre/post-implementation support, and product development services, Surecomp’s upgraded Santiago centre features cutting-edge facilities staffed by a dedicated team of software and banking professionals.
Joel Koschitzky, Surecomp chairman, said: “We believe that our expanded support and R&D presence in this region will enable us to be closer to our clients, and ensure that we effectively leverage our software development talent to meet the specific needs of Latin American banks and financial institutions.”
