Boosted by state and local incentive deals, two information technology companies — PowerDMS Inc. and NAVIS Inc. — plan to add scores of new jobs in Orlando over the next several years, officials for the companies and Orlando’s economic development agency said this week.

Orlando-based PowerDMS Inc., a developer of cloud-based secure document management systems, plans to add 65 jobs through 2017 — more than doubling its current staff, the company said. Average annual salaries pay nearly $85,000, or 200 percent of Orange County’s average wage.

The company, which will spend $400,000 in the expansion, said it chose Orlando over locations in Texas, New York and California. It has been approved for $780,000 in state and local job-creation tax breaks. Read more here.
