San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2009
Open Mountain, Inc. was named a preferred partner for Avantica Technologies, a leading provider of outsourced product development based in San Jose, Costa Rica. Open Mountain provides companies with a low cost alternative for developing new products utilizing near shore development teams provided by Avantica.
"We recognize Open Mountain has the right experience to help companies outsource their development efforts to us," said Mario Chaves, Avantica's CEO. "Their experts improve communication, refine requirements and ensure all parties work seamlessly as one integrated team."
The Open Mountain development model creates a virtual development group by combining technology people in the U.S. with Avantica engineers in Costa Rica and Peru. Companies are able to quickly staff an entire technology team, including an experienced and reliable leader of that team, without the cost and risk of hiring and training. Open Mountain leaders handle all aspects of developing products including planning, product definition, software development, testing and deployment of the final solution.
"We work collaboratively with clients acting as their technology leader," said Bob Benedict, Open Mountain's CEO. "Our clients feel like we're part of the same company, yet they don't have the expensive cost structure of hiring exclusively local talent. Sites such as http://www.Brightstorm.com and http://www.ThriveOn.com launched in 2008 using a development staff led by Open Mountain."
The combination of product development experience and outsourcing experience uniquely positions Open Mountain to understand exactly what it takes to release products on time with suitable functionality and quality. Companies need the cost benefit of near shore resources, but recognize that experience and past success matter when creating innovative solutions.
"Our staff is experienced with true product development from working at companies like Adobe, Ariba, Intuit and others," stated Open Mountain CTO Tom Johnson. "We understand the challenges of product development and know how to create virtual teams that are results oriented and that work as a single coherent development organization."
Avantica's announcement confirms Open Mountain as a key provider for software development management services with significant near shore development experience. Companies looking to reduce costs through outsourcing are now able to reduce risk by using Open Mountain to lead their virtual development teams.
