ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) October 19, 2017
UniKey Technologies, secure access control platform providers, announces plans to work with the City of Orlando on a ‘eKey to the City’ campaign focused on unlocking possibilities by digitizing the city. The hope is to highlight the city’s offerings and inspire innovation and collaboration in the metropolitan area by working with the City of Orlando, Orlando businesses, the University of Central Florida, and other tech companies.
UniKey, founded in 2010 in Orlando, Florida, invented the mobile key platform and powered the first residential smart lock in 2013. The company has since expanded into the commercial and automotive industries and established 17 partnerships worldwide. UniKey’s Founder and CEO, Phil Dumas, was born and raised in Central Florida and opened UniKey’s headquarters in downtown Orlando to support the economic growth and tech development in the area. UniKey is focused on connecting the digital and physical worlds and the ‘eKey to the City’ campaign is an extension of this vision.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer visited UniKey’s office in early October and expressed excitement for the city’s growth and support for continued tech companies in the city. "[UniKey is] a great example of what we're trying to do in the city. Every bit of our economic development strategy is aimed at creating amenities in our City that attracts all the bright young people like you guys to live and work in. I know this company could be located anywhere in the country but it's located here in Orlando, because of what our City has become in the last 10-15 years,” stated Mayor Buddy Dyer while visiting UniKey.
"We established UniKey in downtown Orlando because there are so many incredible resources that surround the region. Central Florida is also home to UCF, where you have one of the finest engineering and computer science programs in the world. The city is full of inspiring tech startups that connect and support one another and we’re excited to be a part of the continued growth and innovation in the area,”states Dumas.
