Viewpost, a financial services company that specializes in electronic invoicing and payments on a secure business-to-business network, will expand its presence, creating 262 jobs over the next three years and making a capital investment of more than $1.9 million in the region in Maitland, Florida.
“I was born and raised in the Orlando area and I’m deeply grateful for the supportive business environment our elected officials and investment community have nurtured. I’m pleased that Viewpost’s success will in turn have a positive impact on the region,” said CEO Max Eliscu.
“Our impact is also felt in the greater marketplace, where the inefficiency and waste in how businesses invoice, communicate and pay one another is staggeringly expensive for everyone, and the environment. The Viewpost team has been incredible, exceeding expectations every month to help any size company remove these costly barriers. We’re bringing on more talent to continue developing a holistic solution that meets the needs of our rapidly growing customer base. It’s an exciting time at our company,” he added.
Secretary of Commerce and President/CEO of Enterprise Florida Gray Swoope said, “The expansion of Viewpost in Orlando is exciting news for Florida’s financial and professional industry. Florida is home to more than 100,000 financial and professional firms employing more than 850,000 Floridians, and this sector will continue to grow thanks to companies like Viewpost. We appreciate them choosing Florida for their expansion and look forward to their continued success.”
As part of the expansion project, CareerSource Florida has offered Viewpost a performance-based partial reimbursement grant for employee training through the Quick Response Training program. QRT grants are structured to be flexible and responsive to the training needs of new or expanding businesses.
“We are thrilled that Viewpost is growing and adding new jobs in Maitland,” said Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission President/CEO Rick Weddle. “They will continue to create innovative tools for the critical financial services industry while highlighting our place as one of the nation’s top tech job hot spots.”
Partners on this project included Orange County, City of Maitland, Duke Energy, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, CareerSource Florida, and the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission.
