Executives from Spanish software firm Grupo ICG met with Uruguayan officials, including President José Mujica, to discuss a software development project, according to a release from the president's office.
Grupo ICG president Dan Andreu presented the company's proposal to develop software for local restaurants and retailers, with the goal of licensing the system in Uruguay on a national level, as well as adapting it in other Latin American countries.
The software is for large consumption, used at points of sales, and also has solutions for boutiques, supermarkets and management of chains.
According to the press release, the meeting's attendees believe the project has a future. In addition to Mujica, attendees included Carolina Cosse, president of state-owned telco Antel, and industry, energy and mining minister Roberto Kreimerman.
Regionally, Grupo ICG is also present in Chile, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico and Panama.
The company has been developing software applications for restaurants, stores, companies and hotels since 1985. Its products are distributed in more than 40 countries, and in 2008 it established a base in Montevideo.
