ITC told by those whom chose it

We have been working for 26 years with ITC. During this period of time we have considered them a valuable partner, a true member of our team that understands our needs and our local market dynamics. The developments we have done together especially in Colombia and Uruguay have set the tone of differentiation and have allowed us to be a step ahead in product and concept innovation. They are reliable, trustworthy and respectful of the agreements we commonly reach.
Jose Loaiza, vice-president of international business of the Exito group (Colombia)
During more than 22 years between 1990 and 2013 I had the privilege to lead Almacenes EXITO S. A. the largest retailer in Colombia and lived step by step its transformation from a company with four stores and 3000 employees to one with more than 600 stores and 40000 employees making it Colombia’s largest employer and at the time the largest corporation in terms of revenue with approx 6 billion dollars of revenue.
One of my most rewarding experiences during this trajectory is to have met Francoise Vendemie Martin CEO of ITC an international product sourcing corporation based in Grenoble France with which we have worked hand by hand for more than16 years.
During all that time ITC proved to be one of our most productive suppliers and distinguished itself for its irrefutable efficiency, the quality of its products and its continual innovation and resourcefulness in a perpetual changing environment.
ITC provided us with a unique differentiation though excellent products of great value and quality finding always new and refreshing items that were delivered to us in very accurate timing reducing considerably our lead time from supplier to final clients.
It is maybe because its manageable size that this excellent sourcing corporation can have great speed backed by excellent communication and logistics.
Finally it is fair to say that the work of ITC went further from simply locating and buying for us innovative international products. ITC was also a very useful and trustable partner for many other aspects of the business as are the development of our range of private labels and building bridges for important and high qualified allies and partners.
I can say with certainty that apparat from our own direct sourcing and that if our parent company in France, ITC was, in my time, one of those suppliers that made it possible for EXITO to become the indisputable leader In the Colombian market with an extension now to other important Latam Nations.
There should be more companies like ITC. And more professionals like the lucky ones that confirm it.
Gonzalo Restrepo, president of Exito group (Colombia) from 1991 to 2013
I had commercial relationship with ITC and its owner Francoise Vendemie Martin since the beginning of the 90’s, being the Commercial Vice president of Exito Group. They have always been an excellent agile, hard-working team, with ability to understand the urgency and with people conscious of their role and responsibilities, who combine youth and experience, both required for a business that needs to be concrete and dynamic.
Mrs. Francoise and her team have the network and capacity to move around the world, in Europe, Asia, Africa. They searched products and stories that the Colombian market asks for, they proposed exhibition and merchandising solutions the most adapted to the selected products in order to help and make things easier for the buyers of my commercial team. They also always take into account better ways and most economical options to transport the goods from origin to Colombian ports in their offers. Without any doubts, during all my time as Commercial Vice President, ITC has been an unconditional ally to offer attractive proposals with best value for money and that permit to surprise the Colombian consumer and to generate intention to buy.
The account management has always been transparent and according to what has been negotiated with our team. When some error happened, they have always been inclined to recognize it and look for the best way for all parties to solve it.
Additional to the sourcing of products, they provide us with an excellent intelligence business service, sending us constantly advertising flyers from the biggest French retails stores, informing us about new trends; exercise very useful for our local commercial and marketing activities.
Dario Jaramillo, vice-president of Exito group (Colombia) until 2011, in the company from 1992 to 2011
The ITC is an active collaborator with quick responses and good help resources in the search and development of products.
The company provides excellent interaction and communication with our team which has been a key differentiator for our work.
The efficiency and organization brings safety and reliability to our partnership.

ITC truly have been essential for our development, reducing the distance between South America and Asia.
Their help is invaluable, both during the fairs as well as during the whole import process. Sometimes you don’t want to buy certain products because of complexity in logistics or else, but in ITC they make the impossible possible.

We worked with ITC in order to develop our sales in South America. This collaboration was really successful because thanks to ITC’s network, local partners choose to trust our products.

Yannis, Parisot (France)
Our collaboration with ITC started in 2009. 2 of our students from our Bachelor Responsible of Iport-export Zone have been recruited in training programs for one year and in the end both students have been hired in the company. One of them, Samantha is still working there today.
Since then, we are working together on a regular basis and all students are unanimous: we really learn how to work imports and exports in ITC, never get bored. The work load is heavy but the job learning is excellent.
Francoise, Samantha and all the collaborators of the company have always led our students on the best way possible and with their heart shared with them their knowledge and professional experience. The student who really wants to learn and to progress can do it.
For all these reasons, I want to thank Francoise and her team for this fruitful collaboration and I wish long life to this dynamic company.
