Project management software firm Prosperi, which helps keep electricity flowing and water clean across Brazil, is bringing similar services to the U.S. via Central Florida.

Brazilian company Prosperi’s expansion efforts in the U.S. will be anchored by its Orlando operations, where the company plans to grow its workforce significantly, CEO Leonardo Nogueria told Orlando Inno.

The company, recognized six times by Microsoft Corp. for its innovative work using the tech giant’s platforms, will oversee the expanded rollout of its newest product from Orlando, as well.

Launched in 1993, Prosperi’s software helps businesses improve workflow, collaboration and project management. The company, which specializes in providing solutions for offices that use Microsoft technology, serves clients in 110 countries in industries ranging from energy to pharmaceuticals. Microsoft in July named Prosperi a global winner for its Latam Project and Portfolio Management Microsoft Partner of the Year Award.
