The way i met Sovtech was easy and simple to start a project online and i got contacted by a representative the following day, who took me through the process and i appreciated every bit of it.

My project planning was straight forward, and all deliverables were discussed and planned out properly. My handler, Roland has been doing an amazing job in managing this my project. The feedback was on time and customer focused.
and i will be moving forward to engage Sovtech for other projects going forward

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

The people. The project team was amazing and easy to work and deal with

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

terms of pricing as some companies are working with governments and governments pay when the job is fully delivered. accommodation for that can be looked into as there wont be any down payment for the project.

Gerald Neves
CEO, SovTech
Kindly share your feedback on how GoodFirms has been doing so far in increasing your visibility among potential clients.
GoodFirms exposes many more potential clients to SovTech’s services, in a place that they can trust. Being featured on GoodFirms gives clients peace of mind when selecting their preferred software development service provider.
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
SovTech is a specialist software product development company that designs, builds, deploys, and maintains innovative software solutions for VC-backed startups and Blue Chip clients across the world.

With headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa we are breaking borders and expanding into new geographies rapidly. We have offices in Cape Town, Nairobi, Dubai, and London and are planning to expand into further cities this year.

Over the past 9 years, SovTech has become a global leader in the software development space and has built unbreakable partnerships with some of the biggest financial, agricultural, and tech unicorns from around the globe.

As the CEO of the company, my key role in driving a common vision that infiltrates every layer of the business  - to become the World’s leading software development from Africa.
What is the story behind starting this company?
Using my experience as a technologist, serial entrepreneur, and software engineer, I noticed the huge gulf between the technological happenings in Silicon Valley and the rest of the world. I wanted to bring Silicon Technologies into the South African market in an attempt to revolutionize the software development industry and business software.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
SovTech has a team of close to 150 in-house software developers, engineers, and designers, that are trusted with each project that comes through our doors. SovTech uses Agile Scrum methodologies to ensure each project is handled and delivered with utmost consideration and expertise.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
SovTech prides itself on its ability to bring products to market faster than anyone else. We nurture projects from concept to deployment to maintenance, with retainer-based scrum teams, using transparent, flexible collaboration methods. Using our in-house specialties SovTech is able to deliver on speed without compromising on quality.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
As technology is rapidly becoming the cornerstone of each business, SovTech caters to a range of industries, for Financial Services, VC-backed Startups, and the global fortune 5000. We do tend to see a large number of our clients renewing their contracts and coming back with new projects. We like to build long-standing relationships with clients to ensure their applications are constantly improving and aligning with their growing business.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
We offer competitive services across the software development lifecycle, from designing, building, deployment and maintenance. Our core offerings are software product development, mobile app development, distributed agile development teams, web development, and blockchain app creation.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
We strive for an NPS (Net Promoter Score) of 8 with our clients. The most critical question is, that if our clients are willing to tell other businesses to work with us due to the quality of their experience, then we have delivered up to our internal standards. Each client is allocated a dedicated project manager and we ensure delivery at all levels of stakeholders involved in a project.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We have dedicated support and maintenance teams with staff and account managers with skills across the spectrum, that provide security to our clients for prompt communication, reporting, and 24-hour support resolution if required.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
SovTech follows a Pay per Milestone approach to billing. This allows tasks and expectations to be managed throughout the project.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
SovTech will take on projects that meet our basic budget requirements,
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2020?
In 2020, SovTech catered to projects that ranged between $25K - $1M
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
SovTech is proud to be a WorldClass Tech company in Africa. Our vision is to spread our roots vastly and become the world’s biggest software company out of Africa. We have a strong footing in multiple countries, such as South Africa, Kenya, Dubai, and the United Kingdom, and we plan to expand our roots into the United States this year.
