Five Reasons Why iTexico’s Clients Share in Our Inc. 500 Honor
At iTexico, there are just two things that motivate our management team and 111 employees to roll out of bed each day: developing cutting-edge and user-engaging applications to help our clients earn ROI from their mobile and web activities; and celebrating our heritage as a leader in nearshoring – capitalizing on the amazing growth of technological resources in Guadalajara, Mexico.
It is, therefore, an added – yet humbling – bonus to be recognized as one of the United States’ fastest-growing private companies on this year’s Inc. 500 list. The list – developed by the respected business publication which bears its name – placed iTexico at No. 188 overall, as well as No. 17 among all IT services companies ranked on the list – and No. 4 among the brilliant collection of enterprises based in the Austin, TX metro area.
For a company like iTexico, where the only numbers we truly care about are those that measure increased engagement and ROI for our clients, the deeper meaning behind the Inc. 5000 rank is the clear signal of the growing, and yet to be satiated, demand for efficient and expedited enterprise app development.
Of course, 2014 was a bellwether year for the importance of smartphone optimization – the first time, according to ComScore, that worldwide Internet users accessing the web via mobile outpaced those using a laptop or PC.
In 2015, we’ve seen the rapid emergence of Internet usage through smart TVs and smart wearables – underscoring the critical importance for enterprises to study, strategize and plan for the changing habits of both clients and employees as they gravitate to these new technologies.
As we consider what makes iTexico uniquely qualified to not only produce enterprise apps, but to lead the way during this very turbulent period of change in consumer data consumption, we realize that clients appreciate the care we take during the process:
1. We are “Agile”
Each iTexico development process employs the Agile development process – the gold standard for resource management;
2. We MEAN business
Our developers “stack” up: To be a part of the iTexico team requires full-stack programming capabilities -- giving each team member insights of the entire project at hand. And with our recent adoption of a new, customizable suite of tools called the MEAN stack, iTexico is able to generate on-demand prototyping of app development projects and to ensure an even more expedited path to completion;
3. Our “two-country” solution
As mentioned previously, our mastery of nearshoring reaps myriad benefits for clients – ranging from the cultural to the collaborative. Our closely-located development resources in Guadalajara offer significant cost-savings and other advantages over those companies who enlist development firepower from half a globe away.
4. Talent for the game
Our highly-experienced developers have diverse backgrounds and interests, but share in common a best-in-class level of insights, and a strong track record of on-time and efficient project delivery.
5. Looks as good as it works
Realizing that many app developers offer superiority in either UI or UX, iTexico focuses on the entire package -- not only ensuring that your deliverable looks as good as it functions, but that it works on all platforms, and is constantly updated to keep pace with technological advances as well as changes in consumer habits.
