Reply was recognised as a leading IT service provider in the market segment “IoT Development Services” by the independent IT research and consulting firm Crisp Research. This category includes companies that offer IoT-specific coding as well as modeling and project management to help clients implement IoT applications. Thus the Reply network of highly specialized companies positions itself as a leading provider of services and development services in the IoT environment.
Above all, Crisp Research emphasises the particularly good service quality and IoT skills in its report. As further strengths of Reply, Crisp emphasizes the comprehensive expertise in industry-specific IoT projects as well as in pure technology projects. The report also highlights Reply’s renowned references at the enterprise level, which include the consumer IoT sector and Industry 4.0. For the implementation of complex IoT projects – independent of manufacturer and technology – the high agility of the individual Reply companies through small team sizes is also advantageous according to the report.

Reply thus positions itself as a leading accelerator among IoT providers for the development and execution of IoT projects. According to Crisp Research, only service providers with an attractive portfolio and optimal support in the implementation of their IoT projects receive the award as accelerators – and thus as market leaders.
