Softtek Named a Strong Performer in SAP Implementation Services by Independent Research Firm

Independent Report recognizes Softtek, SAP’s largest Latin American SAP services partner, for its strong technical implementation skills

Monterrey, Mexico - January 2nd, 2008 - Softtek, the global provider of IT and business process solutions and the largest private service provider in Latin America, announced today that it has been recognized as a “strong performer” in a December 2007 report from Forrester Research, Inc., titled “Forrester Wave™: SAP Implementation Providers, Q4 2007.” Softtek was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in this report, which evaluated 16 leading SAP implementation providers based on 108 criteria including their current product offering, strategy, and overall market presence.

The Forrester Wave Vendor Summary on Softtek states: “Softtek, the best-known Mexican IT service provider, is used to competing head-to-head with both the Indian players and the large multinationals, which is impressive given its relatively small size (about 1,000 people in the SAP practice).” The report goes on to say that, “Although Softtek is admittedly more focused on the technical implementation portions of an SAP engagement, all of its survey references used Softtek for the higher value pre-implementation consulting portions of their SAP engagement in addition of the technical work. All client references were highly positive about the experience. Clearly, Softtek is making great headway towards the higher-value consulting space.”

The report also states, “Softtek is best suited to nearshore SAP implementation work…Softtek has strong technical implementation skills, and is especially focused on the aviation, oil and gas, and pharmaceutical sectors. Its Nearshore capability is also a strong and positive differentiator.”

“We are proud to be recognized as a strong performer in SAP Implementation Services,” said Mauro Okamoto, VP of SAP sales at Softtek. “Since becoming the first SAP Partner in Latin America in 1994, Softtek has been growing and investing steadily in SAP areas and has received the SAP Award of Excellence nine times in 10 years. This recognition reflects our commitment to client service excellence.”

“As creator and leader of the Near Shore® Industry, we are pleased to be selected as a top choice for nearshore Latin American and European SAP implementation services,” said Beni Lopez, CEO of Near Shore Services at Softtek. “Over the last 10 years, our Near Shore services have evolved into a truly global delivery model working collaboratively with clients around the world. Our Global Nearshore™ model has been proven to deliver results by filling a gap left by India-centric IT providers.”

The report also recognizes Softtek’s thought leadership in Mexico stating that “Softtek also had a critical role in establishing Mexico as an emerging destination for offshore solutions, guiding the government in its development of the MexicoIT strategy and ProSoft programs.”

Forrester employs a rigorous process to create the Forrester Wave. Highlights include generating a detailed taxonomy of product attributes, gathering and validating data, and creating the Forrester Wave graphic. The Forrester Wave also includes a spreadsheet tool that is designed for end-users to create their own shortlist based on their own particular needs. For every vendor, Forrester also creates a Vendor Scorecard, an assessment of the vendor’s product or service.
