Softeq Earns Place Among Fastest Growing Companies for Fourth Consecutive Year

HOUSTON, TX, USA — For the fourth consecutive year, Softeq Development Corporation is included on the list of fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine. Softeq helps clients identify early-stage technology opportunities, implement broad-ranging digital transformation initiatives, and create the supporting technical solutions. The company anticipates further growth from consulting services in addition to its core offering of software, firmware, and hardware engineering services. Softeq serves a global client base through its headquarters in Houston, Texas, and has additional locations in Munich, Germany; Vilnius, Lithuania; and Monterrey, Mexico.

“Our growth reflects the long-term market trend of companies converting their analog devices to digital and connecting them to the cloud through mobile apps. Developing a complex IoT device requires strong business knowledge combined with a wealth of engineering talent to make everything work right, scale up, and meet customers’ needs. It’s surprising how many projects we win due to the failure of in-house teams or other developers who miss the mark. Much of our growth comes from satisfied clients and I’d like to thank them for their loyalty and continued business,”
says Christopher A. Howard, Softeq Founder and CEO.

Softeq delivers innovation throughout every stage of a project. Starting with early-stage ideation through the Softeq Innovation Lab, the company focuses on the latest new technologies and delivers creative solutions. One-third of all clients are startups building new products from scratch. The balance consists of established companies requiring complex new custom-engineered solutions. Softeq focuses on the Internet of Things, software, embedded systems, electronic hardware, mobile applications, desktop applications, cloud backends, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Key industries served include Consumer Electronics, Energy, Healthcare, Automotive, Telecommunications, and Industrial Automation.
