SimSTAFF Technical Services Plays Key Role in Supporting Fidelity Technology Opening an Orlando Office

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 26, 2009) --- SimSTAFF Technical Services, which recruits and places specialized workers with experience in engineering, modeling, simulation and gaming technology, leveraged their extensive industry knowledge and connections to bring extra value to one of their major clients. 
           
Patrick Callahan, director of recruiting at SimSTAFF Technical Services, said the firm had already secured a staffing contract with Fidelity Technologies, a Reading, Pennsylvania firm that ranks as one of the nation’s largest developers of simulation technology.

Additionally, SimSTAFF was able to assist Fidelity Technologies in other ways by identifying sublease space for the company to rent for its satellite office in the Orlando area and by introducing Fidelity executives to the local technology community. 

“Because we work with participants across the simulation and gaming industries, we’ve developed a strong network that is valuable to us and allows us to add value to our clients.” Callahan said. 

“With simulation, modeling and training as well as gaming being two critical technology clusters in Metro-Orlando, we are fully committed to doing everything we can to support continued growth of companies in both industries,”  added Callahan.

SimSTAFF is a University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program client located at the Technology Incubator in Research Park.
