Alberto Costa Filho, Managing Director of KICTeam Brasil, explained, "The Brasilian economy is booming; in particular, within the financial markets.  Banks are exchanging check and financial document images, while card operators are truly concerned about the quality and response time of processing transactions.  These companies will begin to focus more on the cleanliness of devices that are being used to guarantee quality of images generated from scanning devices and efficiency from terminal devices."

Erin Bridges, Global Business Development, traveled to Brasil in late June to meet with the KICTeam Brasil staff.  "We have an incredible local team in place," confirmed Bridges, "that will be able to nurture and develop those relationships with our current OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Partners into an even more dynamic and exciting marketplace."

Jimmy Timmins, Marketing Communications, explained, "The best means of reducing the cost of ownership for any equipment is to keep it operating at peak efficiency. Our disposables are meant to maintain that efficiency through scheduled cleaning. The support and endorsements we have earned from our OEM Partners provides KICTeam Brasil with instant credibility among people who use the equipment daily."
