Teleca was established in 1992 by a team of software specialists based in Manchester. Reference clients included Motorola, Racal, Digital, GEC, Hewlett-Packard, Psion and Siemens. Rapid expansion saw its customer base extend to cover mobile device vendors such as Nokia, Motorola and SonyEricsson.

In 2008, Symphony Technology Group made a 100% buyout of Teleca and delisted it from the Stockholm stock exchange.
