Latin American Expertise
Raymond regularly consults with major U.S. retailers who
wish to open stores in Latin America. He provides security-consulting
services throughout 14 Latin American countries, including
Nicaragua, El Salvador and Chile.
Beyond being fluent in Spanish, Raymond is intimately familiar
with the local customs – customs that vary greatly not
only from country to country, but region to region.
Raymond’s connections with local police departments,
governmental agencies and overseas vendors enable him to offer
invaluable advantages to his U.S. clients entering the Latin
American market. He is able to lead clients through an otherwise
confusing maze of local customs and foreign business practices.
Overseas services include:
- Verifying reliability of local communication networks
- Dealing with different currencies
- Communicating through the language barrier
- Finding the proper security dealer or dealers
- Finding the proper central monitoring station
- Knowing which police organization has jurisdiction authority
For domestic retailers, the Latin American market can seem
like a confused maze. Those who do not know how to navigate
the system can end up facing an endless stream of paperwork
and government bureaucracy, being overcharged for sub-par
systems, receiving shabby installation and not knowing how
to choose a reliable monitoring station. All of these factors
can result in loss of efficiency and productivity and a negative
impact on the bottom line.
With P.F. Raymond, Inc., retailers penetrating the Latin
American market can feel secure that they have an ally who
knows the system looking out for their interests.
