Jeff Pizzino, APR, Chief Communications Officer –
Sixty-three representatives from big companies in Mexico attended a Converus, standing-room only event Oct. 22 in Monterrey, Mexico. Converus co-hosted the event with its new partner in the area, Consultores Asociados en Seguridad y Servicios S.A. de C.V. (CASS).
Far and Wide
People came from varied companies including Alfa, Cablevision, Chrysler, FEMSA, Home Depot and Heineken. They came from the local market and surrounding cities; some people traveled 550 miles from Mexico City to hear the presentation.
Technology That Makes an Impression
Converus VP of Worldwide Sales Neal Harris, and Converus Regional Manager Fernando Ferreira presented an overview of the company and its most important product, EyeDetect. EyeDetect technology monitors eye behavior as a means of detecting deception. According to Harris, many of the largest employers and governments in Latin America agreed to begin trying out EyeDetect within their organizations.
“I was thrilled to see the attendance and engagement level at these seminars surrounding EyeDetect,” said Harris. “I can see EyeDetect following a typical adoption curve for disruptive technology, with innovators and early adopters moving first to give their businesses a competitive advantage.”
Attendees showed great interest in utilizing EyeDetect for pre-employment and periodic testing of current employees.
There are lots of potential markets for EyeDetect in Mexico. The country ranked 105 out of 176 countries in the 2012 Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index. Harris says EyeDetect is the perfect tool to help address this issue.
