AUSTIN, TX – November 27, 2018 – Nearshore software development services provider iTexico announces its reception of the 2018 Premios 4TIC by CANIETI Innovation Award for its cutting edge facial recognition software. The accolade, which showcases an application of technology that helps to solve a problem of the current market or generate current market needs, was exclusively created by the company’s Mexican software development team.

Premios 4TIC by CANIETI is Mexico’s premier awards event for the IT industry, sponsored by leading North American businesses like Google, Cisco, and Softtek. Development organizations throughout Mexico are nominated for their innovations in areas like digital transformation, cybersecurity, and social impact.


“We are proud that our software development team is considered a significant contributor to the general interest of Mexico’s economy,” says iTexico CEO and Co-Founder Anurag Kumar. “We couldn’t have done it without our skilled developers, who are eager to continue to deliver leading software solutions to our clients and represent Mexico as a primary IT innovation hub in North America.”

iTexico’s HAL facial recognition software consists of a central processing unit (HAL) resident in a virtual cluster in Microsoft Azure, plus a finite number of terminals residing in desktop computers or Raspberry PI 2 computers with Windows 10 IoT. The software is capable of identifying people based on patterns in facial contours, which can assist in security needs and make automation processes easier.

 The firm was also nominated in 4TIC’s Global Positioning Category for its annual Customer Councils. These events invite customers to their Guadalajara, Mexico location to spend in-person time with their development teams, exchange ideas, and learn about the latest iTexico innovations.


 “We’re not only committed to leading software solutions but offering unique ways to ensure our clients feel like our top priority,” says COO and Co-Founder Guillermo Ortega. “In the spirit of the 4TIC awards, we will always strive to find better and more efficient approaches for delivering top level talent and providing strategic development advantages to future-forward businesses.”


iTexico’s commitment to investments in its Mexico-based staff empowers the company to employ a skilled talent pool with high retention rates and rapidly launch customized end-to-end software development teams. They offer expertise in eight distinct competency centers, including AI, Mobile, and .NET.
