When people learn that we have an office in Bolivia, the first question is Why Bolivia? The answer is pretty clear. My wife and business partner, Brigida, is from Bolivia. About five years ago my family and I decided to relocate to her home country. During the first few months, I realized that Bolivia had an abundance of highly educated individuals looking for a good work environment. Putting that together with our ongoing need for talented IT staff, resulted in us forming a company in Bolivia called, Guyot Technology.
The company is a formally registered Bolivian company that works under the ETTE umbrella. The ownership and management is identical to ETTE. We operate as one company. We find that it is a classic win-win situation. Our clients in Bolivia have access to US technology in an affordable and conveient manner and our US clients benefit from having bi-lingual assistance.
We like to be transparent and that is why we mention our overseas operation so early in our website.

Sometimes that requires a large multi-national and other times, it requires the small business down the street. Our requirement is that all our partners share our deeply held belief that the client's best interest always comes first.
