This agreement allows the company to expand his offering with IBM products, such as the IBM DBA Suite, IBM RPA, and IBM Watson.

Accion Point, a company specialized in the development, configuration, and implementation of business solutions based on Information Technology will be part of the IBM PartnerWorld program, IBM’s premier partner program.

This agreement aims to expand Accion Point’s offer, commercializing products designed for the automation of processes, bots, and artificial intelligence from IBM.

The company offers customers added value, improving the efficiency and operating cost of business processes by automating processes, and helping on the road to digital transformation with AI world-class.

“At Accion Point, we are convinced of our potential and our growth strategy, based on this type of association with world-class players.” commented Franco Schillagi, CEO of the company, and added “Our company has a strong experience in the financial industry, with over 19 Core Banking implementations, and over 400 customers that develop with GeneXus a low-code software tool. This makes us very likable for companies like IBM, which value this market.”

Within the possibilities of the IBM PartnerWorld program, co-branding actions and commercial strategy will be developed to guide the customers and add value to their businesses.

The technology company will work together with the club until the end of 2020 as a new sponsor.

The agreement will allow the institution to develop new digital technologies applied to different areas of the structure.

The main objectives include optimizing the relationship with the partner and fans, improving communications, digitizing strategic areas for growth, managing and controlling information, among many other aspects.

Immediately, the alliance with Accion Point will allow Newell’s to update his website and develop digital onboarding to be able to incorporate new online partners using smartphones, among other services.

The work plan also includes the automation of resources in the member service area, administrative procedures, entrance controls to the club, and during matches, commercial management of the store, etc.

The new technology partner comes to the club as a sponsor with the rights and benefits that this entails, including different forms of advertising on physical and digital media, both in the stadium and in other sectors, participation in events and communications.

Also, to offer excellent tools for the entire club, Accion Point is the first company to implement the latest advanced digital technologies in a field where soccer clubs have not ventured professionally. The club was the first team of the Argentine Soccer Association to have a technological partner.

Franco Schillagi, CEO of Accion Point, said that “This agreement signifies a milestone in the company in two significant ways. One is related to the possibility of developing based on our experience and potential for the club. The second one is setting and leveraging our brand connected with the trajectory of Newell’s Old Boys. That makes us proud and inspired about the future of the company.”

“As a ‘Rosarino’ crib, I know the influence of the Club, which generates a great challenge and commitment,” he continued.”

The agreement is valid until December 2020 with the possibility of being extended in case both parties consider it successful and allow them to grow in this together.

Seven companies from the Technological District of the City of Buenos Aires were united to provide a facial shield to Buenos Aires public hospitals and other health entities, and in this way, collaborate against the spread of the Coronavirus.

Companies from the Technological District came together to develop and produce an innovative model of “total face” shield, and thus donate them as protection supplies to public hospitals and health entities in the City of Buenos Aires.

The #3DFaceShield initiative came from the companies Accion Point, CTL, Datastar, G&L Group, MegaTech, Stylus and Trimaker (the latter with the know-how and expertise in design and production modeling with 3D printers); Those who, in dialogue with District authorities, put together and presented the #JuntosHacemosMas project to FACOEP, the entity in charge of billing public hospitals for prepaid and the CABA Ministry of Health.

As none of the companies had the type of equipment, they had to make an initial investment to acquire ten semi-industrial 3D printers along with printing materials, and also train personnel to be able to operate the machinery.

Héctor Lew, General Manager of MegaTech, says that “The idea started in one of these early mornings when I couldn’t sleep thinking about how we could cooperate from our position. In our current executive meetings, I proposed it to the other companies from the District, and the initiative was originated”.

In parallel to the investment, the group developed and adapted a model of a face shield, with a novel design that they implemented under European standards, and that allows them to make more than 200 units a day.

In particular, the design was carried out by the Trimaker team, based on a Czech model that optimizes to the maximum the necessary material to make each of the facial shields. Also, the model was controlled by professionals in the country. It provides a production between 800 and 1000 units per week, which are then distributed to the hospital’s City.

The face shields have been validated by FACOEP SE and the CABA Ministry of Health – in association with the Undersecretariat for Economic Development, under the Ministry of Economic Development and Production of the Buenos Aires City.

The campaign has already channeled several donations: first to FACOEP, the Pirovano Hospital, and the Ministry of Health, continuing with its production to supply other hospitals and health entities. In this way, the group achieved that the deliveries of these supplies were formalized directly through the City’s health authorities to quickly cover 100% of the needs of the UFU’s (Febrile Emergency Units).

Some collaborators were devoted to printing work and must pause their tasks to put the focus on this solidarity project.

“Our goal is to collaborate with health workers, who put their lives at risk every day to protect us, providing them with an element of care is our grain of sand to help them,” says Juan Guido Camano, President of CTL.
“It is the first time that we have entrusted ourselves to such a task, and we hope that it will be the beginning of many other actions.” Concludes Franco Schillagi, CEO of Accion Point.
