Kepware Technologies was recently named as one of the 2014 Best Places to Work in Maine in the medium company category. The awards program, founded in 2006 by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Maine State Council and the Best Companies Group, is a project designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce, and businesses. Partners endorsing the program include Mainebiz, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, and Maine HR Convention.

Kepware, founded in 1995 and headquartered in Portland, Maine, develops software solutions for the Automation Industry. The company has expanded their distribution to more than 100 countries and increased their headcount by more than 300% over the past decade. Key to the company’s rapid growth and continuing success is its flagship solution KEPServerEX—a communications platform that connects, manages, monitors, and controls diverse automation devices and software applications. Kepware continues to evolve the platform's communication abilities to help companies improve their operations and decision-making by ensuring accurate and reliable data.

The ninth annual Best Places to Work in Maine list is comprised of 70 companies from around the state separated into one of the three size categories: small (15-45 employees), medium (50-249 employees), and large (250+ U.S. employees).

Companies that met eligibility requirements for entry had to complete a vigorous two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first part (worth 25 percent of the total evaluation) consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part (worth 75 percent of the total evaluation) consisted of an employee survey to measure employee experience, engagement, and satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group administered the overall registration and survey process in Maine, and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

Kepware was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on October 8 and will be profiled in a special publication by Mainebiz. This is Kepware's fourth consecutive year winning a spot on the list.
