AMI SERVICES TO HELP YOUR COMPANY NAVIGATE COVID-19 IN LATIN AMERICA

Free and paid services to help your company navigate the effects of coronavirus on your industry in Latin America.

Make wise business decisions in the face of uncertainty

COVID-19 will disrupt your business, your industry, the economy and the health sector.  Your 2020/21 business plans are no longer valid.

Before your business can grow, it needs to recalibrate its plans based upon different assumptions and servicing rapidly changing customer needs.  Your industry’s competitive landscape could radically restructure based upon how your industry peers react to this crisis.  Regulators may very well change how business is conducted for your company.

In a such an uncertain environment, market intelligence and smart strategic planning are more valued than ever.

To help your organization navigate the Coronavirus economic crisis in Latin America, AMI offers you the following free and paid services.

Complimentary offerings

The Impact of Coronavirus on E-Commerce in Latin America

AMI practice leaders and industry panelist(s) will discuss the dramatic shifts in customer behavior that will reshape e-commerce demand in the immediate, medium and long term in Latin America. Forecasting analysis will look at the core components of e-commerce, all trending in divergent ways: airline tickets and hotel reservations, domestic physical e-commerce purchases, cross-border physical e-commerce sales, digital product sales (e.g. Netflix), domestic services (e.g. Rappi delivery).

When: Thursday, March 26th ǀ 12:30 P.M EST ǀ 9:30 AM PST

The Impact of Coronavirus on Trade in Latin America

AMI practice leaders and industry panelists will discuss the likely impact on trade volumes in Latin America in 2020 due to both demand and supply shocks felt inside the region and by Latin America’s largest trade partners around the world. The discussion will additionally explore future changes to global supply chains that the COVID-19 could provoke.

When: Thursday, April 2 ǀ 12:30 P.M EST ǀ 9:30 AM PST

The Impact of Coronavirus on Latin America’s Healthcare System – Crisis Vs Opportunity

AMI’s healthcare affiliate, GHI, led by its principal, Guillaume Corpart, will convene a discussion with Latin American healthcare experts of both the level of preparedness in major markets and the imminent demand for healthcare equipment and devices emerging from this crisis.

When: Thursday, April 9 ǀ 12:30 P.M EST ǀ 9:30 AM PST

AMI Strategic Phone Consultation (free for existing or past clients of AMI)

Companies must quickly re-calibrate their 2020/2021 business plans and re-think their go-to-market strategies. Spending one hour on the phone with our senior Practice Leaders will provide you with an objective and informed perspective built upon two decades of experience in your sector in Latin America. We will both answer some of your questions and pose important new questions to consider as you re-set your regional strategy.

Weekly Coffee Chats (sector-specific conference calls to stay informed)

Quarantined as we are for the immediate future, we will be without the aid of conferences and seminars and yes, the office water cooler or expresso machine to maintain our network and keep ourselves informed. AMI is pleased to host weekly sector-specific Zoom conference calls to bring us all together in an informal but moderated discussion of what comes next in our industries.

Re-Calibrating 2020/21 Business Plans

Most strategic, business and sales plans composed before the COVID-19 crisis hit are no longer of much value to companies. Companies must quickly reformulate their plans and do so while their key people are, at best stranded in different countries, or worse, in their own homes. AMI can help by reaching out to our market contacts and leveraging the knowledge of your staff to gather missing intel on changes to customer behavior, competitor plans, and pending regulations.  Then we can organize and moderate a half to full-day (even longer if necessary) online planning exercise with your senior staff.  Our industry experience and growing understanding of the economic fall-out of this crisis will lend invaluable objectivity to help unite your far-flung regional managers behind an achievable plan that keeps your operations moving forward and your team motivated.

AMI-Organized Webinar for Your Clients and Partners

Your company relies on seminars and conferences to engage with your most important external stakeholders including your B2B and B2C customers, your vendors, affiliates and shareholders. Travel bans and quarantines stifle your ability to engage with your network. AMI can organize and host an online event, bringing curated content and even our industry networks to your outreach efforts. Such an event places your brand at the forefront of thought leadership and industry collaboration at this critical time.

Tailored Monitoring of Your Industry Trends, Leading Competitors and Regulations

The next six to twelve months will bring unprecedented change to Latin American economies and regulations, your industry structure and your competitive environment. Your marketing, sales, finance and product development functions will all need continuous assessments of the market and both the risks and opportunities that rapid market change provokes. AMI can tailor a monitoring program specifically for your company’s needs and create daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly reports for your senior managers. We’ve been doing it for years but now our clients need it more than ever.

LATAM E-Commerce Report 2019-2023

E-commerce may prove to be the most heavily disrupted industry by the COVID-19. In 2002, when SARS erupted in China, consumers stayed home and ordered on-line for the first time. That helped catapult Alibaba and other e-commerce players into global dimensions. Latin Americans may have stopped buying plane tickets online but hundreds of thousands are testing home-delivery of groceries and other staples for the first time, as they adapt to new social distancing rules that are closing stores and restaurants. AMI’s e-commerce forecasts are the first to incorporate the impact of the Coronavirus on customer purchasing behavior and the economic disruption underway in 2020.
