Winter Springs, Fla. — Seico Technology in Winter Springs was recently awarded a major contract to provide sophisticated software and technical support to the Dominican Republic Air Force.
Mauricio Orjuela, general manager at Seico Technology, said the contract is one of the first of many he expects from Latin America.
“We opened our North American office in Winter Springs because it affords us a base from which to expand our business in Latin America and the Caribbean,” Orjuela said.
Under terms of the contract, Seico Technology will provide its proprietary Icarus Plus software and maintenance protocol system in the Dominican Republic.
Icarus Plus is a comprehensive system that optimizes and integrates data from multiple complex sources to help Air Force commanders implement required maintenance functions while controlling costs and eliminating errors.
Seico Technology, headquartered in Bogota, Colombia, chose Winter Springs and the UCF Business Incubator’s Soft Landing program to locate its first North American office. The company hopes to move its headquarters to Florida in the near future.
