Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Accelerance announced today that it has added a new Preferred level of membership in its Global Partner Network of pre-qualified outsourced software development firms around the world. Preferred partners are deeply assessed and evaluated in ten key areas of excellence to ensure high standards of performance and quality of software development for their clients. Accelerance visits preferred partner’s facilities as part of the new partner assessment process.
“Accelerance clients can select our preferred partners with confidence after reviewing the results of our comprehensive on-site assessment, without the need for travel around the world,” said Steve Mezak, CEO of Accelerance. “Clients are able to get started with global outsourcing of their software development quickly and safely – even if they are new to outsourcing or have experienced difficult challenges going offshore in the past,” he said. Mezak is author of the book, Software without Borders: A Step-By-Step Guide to Outsourcing Your Software Development.
All Accelerance partners are hand-selected and undergo a qualification process that documents their strengths and seeks to uncover weaknesses that impact the quality of outsourced software application development. Only those offshore providers who possess the operations and track record to successfully deliver reliable software development to clients are selected to become an Accelerance Global Partner.
The onsite assessment performed by Accelerance investigates important aspects of the prospective preferred partner’s business including security, facilities, and their recruiting and training processes. “Other assessments offered by certification organizations and companies, such as Microsoft, CMMi and ISO, focus on technical capability. These are certainly important but don’t tell the full story of what it is like to do business with a company. The Accelerance assessment goes beyond the technical factors to create a complete picture of every preferred partner for our clients,” said Steve Mezak.
Announcement of the first Accelerance preferred partners in Latin America and Eastern Europe will be made shortly. Additional preferred partners are presently being evaluated in India and South America.
