New company in the technology sector in Aragon. The Wi Group, of which applications such as Wiclee for domestic services are part, and Deveco, a technology company developed with artificial intelligence, have come together in Deveco IT to respond to existing needs in the development of technological and digital products.
A synergy that has been reflected with the signing of the document that includes the entry into the capital of each of the companies in their respective companies, giving way to the creation of Deveco IT by Carlos Zapatero, Miguel Laguna and Javier Senz.
The new society arises from the “need of large technology companies, due to the overload of projects, of having to outsource the activity. It is to provide an alternative in Zaragoza and to prevent companies from other countries such as Pakistan from entering,” says Carlos Zapatero, COO of Deveco IT and CEO at Wiclee, to the Economist
In addition, “we had clients, especially from the biotechnology and industrial part, with difficulties in carrying out the digitization of processes, of the production chain… We do it in a personalized way, even if they have free software,” he adds. Carlos Zapatero.
Deveco IT is specialized in the custom software development for both companies and startups with the added value of artificial intelligence. Its main lines of business include software engineering outsourcing, as well as mobile, web and desktop applications.
Its activity also covers data collection, management and analysis, technology and business consultancy, digital marketing, process automation and optimization, business branding and digital product design.
Deveco IT, based in Zaragoza, will focus its activity on Aragon, although it is not ruled out that it will later venture into other projects in other geographical areas of the national territory. Precisely, within its main objectives, is the rural environment in order to focus on breaking the technological barrier in these locations and boosting local businesses through digitization.
At the moment, among the first developments that Deveco IT will carry out, is that of Wiclee, but in its business part. This application, from Grupo Wi, had already been providing a service for individuals by contacting professionals to carry out different tasks in the domestic and household sphere.
Now, the app goes one step further and expands to the field of companies, with Wiclee Business, to manage cleaning services in the business field. A service that has been operating for a couple of months in Madrid, Barcelona and Zaragoza, making it easier for Airbnb users, for example, to have an easy and comfortable system to clean the facilities. Other functions will also be available for data, among others. “Wiclee continues for individuals, but we have also seen potential in companies.”
Deveco IT was born with an initial staff of five people, although three more professionals will be incorporated in the coming weeks, especially young people. “We are going to give companies the opportunity to join” in order to help retain local talent and facilitate their incorporation into the job market, apart from professional growth.
