Applied Predictive Technologies (APT) announced Wednesday it’s expanding its headquarters in Arlington County. The move is expected to create 368 new jobs.
APT, a MasterCard company, is a cloud-based analytics software firm. Its Test & Learn software allows companies to identify which programs work, where they work best, and how they can be improved going forward. APT also offers products that provide transaction analysis, space planning, promotion design, category management, and location selection. Its clients include Wal-Mart, Starbucks, Coca-Cola and Victoria’s Secret.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $1.75 million grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund for the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will also be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
Virginia competed against North Carolina and Washington, D.C., for the project.
