German firm TeamViewer has arrived in Latin America, opening a delivery center in the Mexican city of Guadalajara.
The Göppingen-based company, whose remote access solutions offer tremendous flexibility for businesses facing skills shortages, hopes to leverage Guadalajara’s tech talent pool to penetrate deeper into the region.
“We chose Guadalajara for several reasons, one of which is that it is the Silicon Valley of Mexico, there are many universities. They offer great engineering talent,” the company stated.

TalentViewer makes money from about 620,000 commercial subscribers, although most of its services are free for individual users.
TeamViewer markets itself as an ideal partner for factories and digital companies with a large number of remote workers. Its platform allows software professionals to work as a team and develop technical solutions despite being physically far apart. Also, factory workers can both monitor and operate machines from their homes.
With mobile phones being massively available and as the skills shortage continues to worsen, remote working solutions are expected to see higher demand.
TeamViewer, which employs 1,400 people worldwide, reported sales of US$579 million for 2021. It hopes to increase the figure to US$682 million in 2023.
