Spanish IT Firms Visit Miami Seeking to Open New US Markets

MIAMI – Ten Spanish software and technology firms are visiting Miami seeking customers, technological partners and investors for projects and business opportunities ranging from worker databases to online optical sales.

“IT represents a very powerful market because of its rapid development, so we’re trying to give it visibility abroad,” Alvaro Parga, the IT director for Extenda, the Andalusian Agency for Promotion Abroad, which organized the business mission, told EFE on Wednesday.

Participating in the trade mission are Clever, Comerzzia, Gabitel Ingenieros, Globomail Spain, Kelevra, Novayre Solutions, Open Ximdez Evolution, SHS Consultores, Tier 1 Technology and Visual-click, all of which are Spanish software and tech firms.

This is the sixth mission for Spanish businessmen to the US organized by Extenda, which already has an office in this country.

Alejandro Jos, the development and strategy chief for Clever, which during the first quarter of 2018 will launch the professional Bluu Link network, similar to the LinkedIn platform but focusing on “blue collar” employees and workers, told EFE that the US and Latin America constitute a market of “300 million workers.”

Bluu Link, which will be a database for monitoring workers, will allow information centers to verify the experience and abilities of “blue collar” employees.

Companies will be able to look for workers and validate their work experience and workers will be able to monetize the use of their data, Jos said.

Also participating in the trade mission is Antonio Gonzalez, the founder of Visual-click, Spain’s first online optical and eyeglasses firm and one of the first in Europe, which is seeking a presence in the US, a “much more mature market” than exists in Europe.

The firm’s objective, Gonzalez told EFE, is to find a partner to establish a headquarters in the US, which will provide “greater guarantees to the local buyer” and will reduce the cost of shipments, delivery times and the management of returns.

The firm has a business volume of 400,000 euros per year in the US and Latin America at present, but Gonzalez hopes to triple that.

Meanwhile, Francisco Cabrero emphasized that the aim of SHS Consultores on this trade mission is to sell its biometry and other products, as well as its software, seek to “exponentially” expand its customer base and access technology that can complement its present product line.

The three businessmen said they were happy for the opportunity to participate in the trade mission and for the chance to meet with potential partners in New York on Monday where they signed several preliminary agreements.
