Houston, TX, September 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Softeq Development, a seasoned provider of embedded software and firmware development services for hardware companies and OEMs, announced today a First Place Stevie® Award in the Electronics category of The 10th Annual International Business Awards.

Softeq company secured the victory by presenting the DURATEQ ATV, the proprietary assistive technology handheld device for guests with disabilities. Installed at Mount Vernon, The World of Coca-Cola, Disney theme parks and over two dozen US major landmarks to date, the DURATEQ is the most technically advanced full-featured assistive solution and holds the leading spot on the market.

Recognized as the Company of the Year, Softeq takes up the baton from Samsung Electronics, last year’s winner in the same category, and one of Softeq’s clients. The company’s core centers of excellence in Electrical Design, Firmware Development and Embedded Software Solutions serve the needs of the world’s most forward-thinking companies and creators of next-generation devices and gadgets. This diverse, yet domain-specific, project background allowed Softeq to successfully launch a Product Development line of business, with the DURATEQ as the flagship product.

“The DURATEQ is one of my favorite projects delivered by our Firmware and Hardware Design teams in Softeq’s 17 year history. We not only developed the embedded software and created the proprietary ALiCE communication technology – Assistive Listening and Captioning Engine – but we designed and manufactured the hardware and the venue infrastructure. I am very proud of the DURATEQ team and we look forward to expanding the DURATEQ product line,” commented Chris Howard, CEO and Founder of Softeq Development Corporation.

The International Business Awards, a leading global awards program for companies of any size, ownership, and industry focus, received over 3,300 nominations from 50 nations and territories this year. Selected by an independent jury of 250 executives, the winners will gather at a Gala Banquet on October 14 in Barcelona, Spain to celebrate the achievement.
