Under terms of the agreement, Congruent will work with RC Networks to expand its sales channels initially in 16 countries, with the focus on European and Asia Pacific markets. "Widespread demand for high-speed broadband access is now a reality in international markets as well as the U.S., and we want to capitalise on these opportunities quickly," said Michelle Conyers, vice president of international sales at RC Networks. "Congruent has the expertise and resources that will help us expand our current capabilities and accelerate our penetration of these markets as the demand for broadband services by businesses and building owners increases." Congruent applies its outsourcing model to high-tech companies' international operations, thereby offering a scalable solution that provides faster results and greater return on investment than developing solutions in-house. The firm's portfolio includes consulting, marketing support, channel management, approvals and certification, recruitment management and field support services. The company's regional headquarters are located in Boston, London and Hong Kong, with satellite offices in Paris, Rome, Madrid, Beijing and Sydney. "By leveraging our in-depth expertise, RC Networks is poised to strengthen their position in the global marketplace," said Nicholas Doyle, president of Congruent International. "Developing strong sales channels in today's highly competitive markets is an important step toward establishing a strong market share and yielding real revenue. This above all is our real added value."
