Philippe Oros, founder and PDG of Quescom  comments:
"We were looking for a solution that would allow us to trial and then enter the UK market...we chose the CEO Worldwide solution and then selected David N a VP Business Development based in London. We were able quickly to identify and then resolve all the issues relating to technical compatibility with UK standards and then quickly signed 2 distribution deals raising significantly our business profile in this new market.
Not only does CEO Worldwide offer the most cost-effective way to research and then enter a European market but its solution is also flexible and easy to put into place."
 Quescom is a French start-up which raised almost 12 million in 2002
