ETTE is a US-based company with international reach. 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. My family and I decided to relocate to her home country for a few years.
During our time there, I came to appreciate that Bolivia's abundance of highly educated engineers looking for a good work environment. Our sister company in Bolivia, Guyot Technology, was born.
Our ownership and management are identical. We operate as one company. We find that it is a classic win-win situation. Our clients in Bolivia have access to US technology, and our US customers benefit from having bilingual assistance from a talented group of technicians. We like to be transparent,
and that is why we mention our overseas capabilities so early in our website. For organizations that require only US-based staff, we can meet this requirement through our Washington DC team.
We partner with many of the leading global IT solutions providers like Microsoft, VMWare, and Ingram Micro. We also partner with local resources that are best of breed. We know that no one is the best at everything they do. We work with partners that have the expertise our clients require.
Our focus on partnerships is to have best of breed solutions for clients. 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
