Softtek, which styles itself "the largest private IT service provider in Latin America," has been recognized as a “strong performer” in an August 2009 report from Forrester (News - Alert) Research titled “Forrester Wave: SAP Implementation Providers, Q3 2009.” 

The report evaluated 18 SAP implementation providers based on 60 criteria, including their current product offering, strategy and market presence.

The Forrester Wave Vendor Profile on Softtek records that Softtek is "well-known in Mexico and Latin America" in the SAP (News - Alert) space, especially in such industries as aviation, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals. 
The report finds Softtek's strongest area being "around SAP support and maintenance as well as technical elements of the implementation.” It also rated Softtek highly for client reference rating for transparency of costs. 

Mauro Okamoto, VP of SAP Business Development for Softtek in the United States, said Softtek works with clients "across the Americas" for SAP engagements. Softtek’s SAP Practice also received the SAP Award of Excellence in the “Best Regional Partner” for the 10th time in 11 years. 

Beni Lopez, CEO of Near Shore Services at Softtek, says the company combines their SAP practice with a "Global Nearshore delivery model.”

The annual award is offered by SAP to one outstanding partner in each geographic category that obtained the best results in annual client satisfaction research, according to pre-established criteria.

Founded in 1982, Softtek counts 6,000 associates across 30 offices in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia, as well as nine Global Delivery Centers in Mexico, China, Brazil, Argentina and Spain.
Last month, TMCnet

reported that Softtek launched new application security services, called “ARMOR” – Application Risk Management, Ongoing Reassurance at the Gartner (News - Alert) Information Security Summit in Washington, D.C.

"Softtek officials, while giving this information, said that ARMOR is a holistic program that detects, corrects and prevents security defects throughout the application lifecycle and delivers a comprehensive, metrics-driven and cost-competitive solution, enabled by its Global Nearshore model.
