He explained that his company decided to participate in the 7th International Accounting, Auditing, and Finances Symposium in order to study and evaluate the software and service needs of auditors on the largest Caribbean island and to present their new system, DATEV SINFOPAC Audit.
Visiting Havana for the first time, the Spanish cooperative - with over 40,000 members - focuses on offering services "by professionals, for professionals" and providing auditing and related products to international clients and organizations.

He added that the "by professionals, for professionals" philosophy is reflected in the values of the brand and is expressed in a commitment to completing management projects with viable, innovative solutions; to high-quality services; and to cooperation with professional associations, institutions, and other organizations.
According to Schmidt, who is on hand together with other representatives of the company at a stand during the event, the advantages of their software products include their compatibility with different languages and with different national auditing systems, allowing auditors to exchange data all over the world.

He added that they currently have clients - including auditors and financial consultants - in over 20 countries; within Latin America they operate offices in Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Peru, and Uruguay, among other locations.
DATEV SINFOPAC Audit, the program presented at the Convention Hall in Havana, is an auditing application developed by professionals from various European countries.
