The development speed is really good and the quality is also good, so we are really satisfied with their work. If we had to do it ourselves, it should have cost more and [taken] a longer period. But Softeq team did it very efficiently. I really appreciate Softeq’s work and I definitely recommend Softeq to our colleagues or customers.
My name is Kozo Moriyama, I am Lead Engineer of face recognition technologies. We have been doing kind of license business for mainly mobile markets and I’m responsible for leading of R&D team and sales engineering support for major accounts, mainly based in the United States.
Three or four years ago one of our customers asked us to develop a kind of demo for an exhibition, but we didn’t have enough resources at a time, and they also introduced Softeq to us.
Now we are developing face recognition technologies and the demo software application is really important for us. We have to make our customers understand how our software can work well so we really needed an actual demo application. Our software can detect faces and recognize who is who or make smile estimation or detect gaze direction etc. We just can’t provide the engine itself, so we need an application to draw a name on the face, write up the age that we can show to our customers.
We asked Softeq to develop a proof-of-concept using our technologies. We had an Android demo and we sent out the demo as a reference. We didn’t have any documentation of that, so we sent it out to Softeq team to analyze how it works and make an iOS demo for us. Softeq team totally understood what we wanted to do and developed a much better application demo than the Android one we had developed. The development speed is really good, and the quality is also good. So we are really satisfied with their work. If we had to do it by ourselves it should have cost more and taken a longer period, but Softeq team did it really efficiently. I really appreciate Softeq’s work and I definitely recommend to our colleagues or other customers and to anybody in Japan.
