In addition, in 2017, we received the World Quality Commitment Gold Award, Paris, awarded by the Business Initiative Directions, along with the QC100 Total Quality Management certification in recognition of the quality of our services.

Additionally, this includes the Digital Marketing Magazine, which generates personal content related to various businesses opportunities created by e-commerce opportunities.
What has been the most significant challenges for your company?
One of the most significant challenges is due to our position as the first consulting company dedicated to advising companies in the different acquisitions processes through a public Chilean portal, one of our country’s main Markets.
In this way, the greatest challenge is to continue improving and adapting to the changes posed by the e-commerce world. We must be capable of providing a quality service and giving our clients the confidence to enter new markets in a safe and secure manner. This also poses a huge challenge to constantly train ourselves with innovative tools and business models with the ability to quickly adapt to our surroundings because, ultimately, in the e-commerce world, “the only constant changes.”
