CIS Group Takes MatrixStore Deeper into Latin America

Press Release

Cardiff, 15th October 2013

Object Matrix, developer of trusted object based storage solutions, today announces the appointment of Miami based CIS Group to represent Object Matrix throughout Latin America.

Following a very successful Broadcast and Cable show in Sao Paulo, the agreement was made that will see the MatrixStore nearline storage platform pushed further into the vibrant and growing territory. At the show, CIS Group lined up meetings with the key resellers in Argentina, Mexico, Chile, and Colombia, all of whom signed up to represent MatrixStore in those countries in the weeks that followed the show. The new Object Matrix channel partners in Latin America include:

Nick Pearce, co-founder, Object Matrix stated:

“When we appointed the CIS Group to represent Object Matrix in Brazil in 2012 we did so with the hope that we could leverage their technical and sales expertise throughout the entire region. We are therefore delighted to make this announcement and excited to be working with the CIS Group team to accelerate the growth of the business in the region”

Nearline solutions, such as MatrixStore, that are fully integrated and serve multiple workflows are being sought globally. Organisations no longer see the value in adding additional chassis of expensive and inappropriate production storage when they can attain a better return on their investment from implementing a fully tiered storage model.

Guilherme R. Silva, CEO of CIS Group, stated:

“Our customer base across Latin America has a mission to search out and implement solutions that provide enhancements to their workflows while maximizing return on investment. Being able to offer solutions like MatrixStore that integrate so seamlessly with the Avid environment helps our customers towards that aim. The Object Matrix team also understand the need to integrate with other brands that we represent, such as GLOOKAST and SGL, in order to ensure we are providing our customers with integrated solutions and not islands of technology.”

The CIS Group will be showing MatrixStore in GLOOKAST and Avid workflows at the CAPER show in Argentina from the 23-25th October.
