The growth of companies has been fostered through specialized training in business and innovation, joint participation in technological projects, promotion of internationalization with government support, and certifications such as CMMI 2 and MOPROSOFT. In search of market expansion, Clustec has created alliances with the National Council for Software and Information Technology Clusters (MxTI) and the Mexican Association of the Information Technology Industry (AMITI). Two Clustec companies have received the competitiveness award and one more the export merit award given by the local government. Among our national clients are companies of national and international stature. We also have international clients in the United States, Chile and Switzerland. Participants expect promotion, networking and training from the Cluster. Finally, the Cluster needs continuous improvement and one strategy is to certify its administration.
