A Local Team knows the culture and best practices of the area, being able to give strategic advice concerning different aspects: technological support, compliance, fraud integration or user acquisition.

Local standards, specific requirements for the integration, legal constraints, technological development level…the correct local support is vital for the success of a 100% digital business.

  • Product adaptation: in order to reach higher conversion rates, it is essential to adapt digital products or services to meet consumer expectations in the specific area. Adaptation is a decisive factor in different product categories such as: VOD, Music, Gaming, Health, News, Digital Ticketing or Medias. In any case, consumer’ preferences and habits will determine the way in which the product is deployed.
