WAVTEQ Americas FDI success case study Back to successes
WAVTEQ was contracted by CINDE Costa Rica, one of the world's leading IPAs, to target the UK market for FDI.
We identified a target list of UK companies which have not yet setup near shore BPO centres for the US and LATAM market or which have potential to relocate.
WAVTEQ gained access to a Financial Times closed-door event, attended by major UK companies being targeted.
At the FT event, WAVTEQ met with the key advisors to IBM-Pearson Group and understood the company had expansion plans and would likely consider a near-shore location.
WAVTEQ then secured a call with the CFO of IBM-Pearson and introduced Costa Rica as a high quality location solution for IBM-Pearson.
Following introductions to CINDE, IBM-Pearson and IBM (outsourcing partner) selected Costa for a 150 person SSC operation.
WAVTEQ also identified further investment opportunities for Costa Rica from the UK.
