Monterrey, N. L. – August 26th, 2008 – Last Monday Softtek, the global provider of IT and business process solutions and the largest private service provider in Latin America, received the “Premio Nuevo León a la Calidad 2008” (Nuevo Leon Quality Award 2008) within the Empresas (Enterprises) sector. During the ceremony, eight winners from several industry sectors of Nuevo Leon were recognized for their prominent focus in obtaining results, thanks to the planned implementation of quality processes. This year, 214 firms—the highest number in the history of this award—participated within the evaluation process.

The “Premio Nuevo León a la Calidad” was established on November 10th, 1989, and this award is an annual recognition granted by the State Government to public and private organizations with an outstanding performance in quality processes implementation. In the past, 1,600 organizations have participated; of those, 115 of them have been recognized.

Softtek, along with 84 corporations, participated in the Empresas (Enterprises) category, winning the award within the segment of Services. Luis Cuellar, Softtek’s Global Quality Manager, mentioned, “Several years ago, when we decided that our company should be globally competitive, we were conscious that the commitment for quality was the first requirement needed for success.” He later added, “The maturity of our processes and the constant exploration for models which facilitate our evolution have been the key factor in our competitiveness.”

Softtek has been the pioneer in the implementation of software engineering practices in Latin America and global outsourcing services with the Nearshore model. The company uses three key elements to support its quality model: Adherence to the Capability Maturity Model Integration CMMi of the Software Engineering Institute; the use of Six Sigma, a management method focused on the customer and data supporting which allows obtaining the excellence in our business processes; and finally, the use of technology for the automation of our processes.

The “Premio Nuevo León a la Calidad 2008” is an incentive to keep on the track of the continuous improvement and recognition to the professionalism and talent of our people. The only way to correspond to our clients’ trust is to maintain a tireless commitment with quality,” Cuellar concluded.
