France is an interesting market for us which is why we're testing this theory here first. France has a high per capita income, has a high rate of adoption for technology (both Linux and Mac), and is incredibly nationalistic for all things French. As such, we believe that a localized software with localized service and support for France should do very well. Our mission is to determine if technology trumps a true local presence. I'll keep you updated so keep coming back.
