São Paulo, Brazil (PRWEB) June 03, 2011
The Perigord Group, a Global Artwork Management company, announced today that it has opened a new office in São Paulo, Brazil.
The new office will work exclusively on the South American market and from it's location in São Paulo, Brazil, will begin the roll out of the group’s breakthrough GLAMS or Global Pharmaceutical Artwork Management System throughout the region.
GLAMS was launched in North America at Interphex 2008, with the appointment of Montesino Associates LLC to serve as its exclusive United States pharmaceutical industry sales agent. The system is now being used by some of the largest Fortune 500 pharmaceutical companies. The relationship with Montesino will now extend to oversee the introduction of the product to the South American market.
Commenting on the new office, Alan Leamy, Perigord Group, Chief Executive Officer said, “We’re delighted to be establishing a base in South America. The Pharmaceutical & Healthcare industry has enjoyed phenomenal growth within this region. Montesino Associates, under the direction of Peter Schmitt and his team of managing and senior associates, is the partner we need to help drive our success within this region."
Brazil has been named as a key player within the ‘Pharmerging Markets’, a phrase coined by IMS Health, one of the World’s leading providers of market intelligence, to describe the top or ‘tier-1’ emerging pharmaceutical markets. In 2009 the group forecast that these markets would account for a phenomenal 51 percent of all global growth.
“We are very excited to be extending our relationship with The Perigord Group,” Montesino Associates’ founder Peter Schmitt said today. “The GLAMS Global Artwork Management System offers clients an unprecedented array of flexibility, productivity and cost-efficiencies previously unavailable to clients in the generic pharmaceutical industry. We are delighted to announce that Inez Aguiar will head up our multilingual Perigord team for South America.”

What’s more, GLAMS creates a central online storage area that accepts all files using recognized industry standards, to provide a single point of proof. GLAMS allows all involved parties to participate directly in the print production process to generate artwork in a unified tracking and management flow. GLAMS integrates with all aspects of the artwork life cycle according to and in compliance with relevant industry standards and the customer’s specific needs.
