Kiwi app developer experiences global success

06 Oct 2015

Touchtech has been recognised for its growing success by Deloitte.

The company is officially the Wellington winner of the Deloitte Fast 50’s Fastest Growing Exporter award.

The award takes into account a company’s revenue and staffing growth over the previous three years, and asks challenging questions about their future direction, aspirations, and how they manage growth to ensure they can expand sustainably.

Touchtech is a web and mobile app developer based in Wellington, and has experienced a number of wins in the last 12 months. For one, it has continued its expansion outside the New Zealand market and tackled a number of large projects in the US and Australia.

Adrian Falvey, Touchtech director, says, “Our commitment to delivering products that prioritise value and simplicity has enabled us to expand, based on our reputation for high-quality software.”

While Touchtech still builds many web and mobile apps for startups, businesses and museums in New Zealand, offshore projects have made up a greater and greater share of the total work Touchtech is completing, according to the company.

Andrew Smith, Touchtech CEO, notes “Touchtech’s export success rests in the value we place on client relationships.

“Our commitment to maintaining open communication with a client anywhere in the world means our services can travel.

“Being a technology company with a number of innovative solutions to working and communicating across timezones helps too.”

Touchtech’s Fast 50 win comes on top of their success in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 last year, when they were named the 131st fastest growing technology company in the Asia-Pacific region.
