Mar del Plata’s Mayor commented “I am certain that in a few years Mar del Plata will become the capital of Software Development here in Argentina.” “The city of Mar del Plata is opening the door to the IT industry and is looking forward to the opening of the first technology park in the city.”
Making Sense’s CEO Cesar DOnofrio also made reference to the beginnings of the company and stated that he is proud to see how “Making Sense is currently offering Nearshore same time zone service from Argentina combined with an onsite customer relationship and project management teams generating a new and refreshing option for clients that historically only used offshoring development work in India and other parts of Asia.” Cesar also mentioned the development of a software product that is used by the Texas state police and also being pitched to different police agencies in the United States, developed entirely in the city of Mar del Plata. “This new technology we are implementing and launched in the United States has taken security to a whole new level. We helped COPsync, operator of the United States’s largest law enforcement real-time, information sharing, communication and data interoperability network, to develop the Industry’s First Fully-Integrated High-Definition Software Driven Video System for Law Enforcement Patrol Cars. The software is being developed entirely right here from our location in Mar del Plata from the beginning to the end.”

The Alem area in the city of Mar del Plata was chosen as the home of the new offices due to the initiative of the company to offer its employees the possibility to work in a relaxed environment and have fun while they confront new challenges and reach their goals with great results. For this reason the new office is located only blocks away from the beautiful coast of Mar del Plata, within a walking distance of approximately two blocks from the best beaches.
On the other hand, Mar del Plata is known for its high standards in education and the talent of its graduates. The city is home to The National Technological University, one of Argentina’s public universities focused on teaching engineering and exact sciences. Moreover, the Universidad del Centro de Tandil is one of the most prestigious institutions for IT careers throughout the country and is very close to the city.
“We should not forget the importance of promoting the continuous professional development of Argentine students and graduates without having to move away from their native country and helping it grow both economically and socially” explained Cesar DOnofrio, Making Sense’s CEO. He also remarked that “Making Sense is strongly committed to continue working to introduce software services firms as well as Independent Software Vendors from Argentina to local business associations and companies in the United States.”
