Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


GENIO, the agile platform for modeling and automatic generation of integrated information systems of the multinational technology company Quidgest, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021.

As part of the celebration, the Portuguese Secretary of State for Internationalization Eurico Brilhante Dias visited Quidgest last March 25.


Currently, Quidgest's platform, which is responsible for more than 600 solutions, can reach productivity levels 100 times higher when compared to ordinary market players, which are dependent on manual programmers.


The presentation by the Secretary of State for Internationalization focused not only on the challenges for national exports during the pandemic but also on solutions.


The government member responsible for supporting the internationalization of Portuguese organizations also stressed the need for Portuguese companies to cement the national credibility seal in foreign markets with the objective of selling products and services for identical values to incumbent and more competitive markets.


"To GENIO, which is at full strength of its capabilities, long life to the outside world. May it take Quidgest and the name of the country far away," concluded the Secretary of State for Internationalization.


The event also served to mark the 15 years of Quidgest's internationalization. It was in 2006 that the Portuguese technological company closed its first business abroad. It was a solution for the Timor-Leste government to manage the pensions of war veterans. The company that created GENIO is currently in more than 20 countries and continues to increase the volume of exports.
