In July 1996, he decided to open his own IT consulting services firm – SofTec Solutions. On day one, he was the only billable employee and his first contract was with Total Petroleum as an acting Chief Information Officer. Day two, he added 2 employees. SofTec’s primary focus has been working with Enterprise based solutions as well as IT staffing solution.
Then came the major downturn in the Telecom business that had a huge impact on IT, especially in the Denver market right around 2001. A lot SofTec’s competitors were not able to withstand the storm – but SofTec survived! SofTec has always been self-funded with no debts and a single owner (Hemal Jhaveri). At the company’s peak, there were 700+ full-time employees. SofTec continues to focus on application deployment through their consulting arm as well as IT staffing solutions. They have been in business for 20+ years.
