Esker Expands Presence in Latin America Through Partnership with Signature South Consulting

Alliance provides customized solutions that are compliant with Latin America’s evolving regulatory requirements

MADISON, Wis.--()--Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, announced today its partnership with Santiago, Chile-based Signature South Consulting, a leading provider of solutions related to electronic document exchanges with digital signatures. The alliance is designed to benefit the Latin American customers of both companies by providing a more comprehensive set of offerings while meeting the complex and evolving electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) mandates that vary by country.

Esker is a global company with customers that also have a worldwide presence. Esker decided to pursue a regional partnership to help navigate the various diverse e-invoicing mandates of the Latin America region. In Signature South Consulting, Esker found a partner with unparalleled expertise in e-invoicing compliance.

“Signature South Consulting was the obvious choice for us in terms of a partner,” said Steve Smith, U.S. chief operating officer at Esker. “Not only is it the only provider of a solution that meets all e-invoicing requirements in Latin America, but it also has a reputation for integrity and excellent customer service. We knew right away that Signature South Consulting would be an asset to both our customers and our brand.”

Signature South Consulting also saw the value in an alliance with Esker. Although the company has expertise in electronic document exchanges, it wanted to expand its business service capabilities to include document automation and processing.

“We believe that developing relationships with companies whose skills complement our own is imperative as we continue to serve clients in many different markets with varying needs,” said Sergio Chaverri, chief marketing officer at Signature South Consulting. “Esker is a global company with impeccable solutions and a long history of putting client relationships first, so we knew we had found the technological and cultural fit we were looking for.”

Now that the two brands have forged a synergistic partnership, they will begin offering integrated solutions to current and future customers.
