We consider that globalization is an opportunity! Exporting goods or services to other countries will allow Small and Medium Enterprises to benefit from external growth and will bring them invaluable experience for their local market. SME can increase their business by partnering with foreign distributors and accessing new suppliers. We are convinced we have an added value to strengthen relationships between companies from France and Mexico. Our local network and knowledge facilitates from market research to the opening of a legal entity in the other country.
Globalization must not be a threat of aggressive competition at lower prices. We traveled in different continents and we found everywhere a desire to communicate, exchange, learn and make business with other countries. We would like to share this excitement of international deals and economic growth with SME.
Information Technology should not be a privilege for big companies. Affordable solutions can be found for Small and Medium Enterprises which will allow improving some processes and gaining efficiency. We believe that, with a reasonable investment, SME could benefit from applications and systems which will help them concentrate into two main activities: running their business and signing contracts.
In 2011, according to the French Observatoire de la Petite Entreprise, 62% of SME do not have a Website. Internet is an opportunity to attract customers and develop their loyalty though: the FEVAD indicates that in France, there are 38,6 millions internet users and 72% of them buy online. In 2010, in Mexico, the SAT published that 340 000 companies (97% of which are SME) have generated more than 2 billions digital invoices. This implies potential improvements for activity monitoring, sourcing, accounting… We want to help these SME into this transition and we are sure we could share the best practices we found in Mexico and France.
