Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
Accelerance, announced today that Belatrix Software Factory in Argentina is the newest global partner to achieve the new Preferred level of membership in the Accelerance 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.
“After visiting Belatrix to assess their facilities and capabilities in Mendoza and getting to know their people I can confirm what their clients already know – Belatrix is a world-class software development firm,” said Andy Hilliard, President of Accelerance. “I am sure Accelerance clients looking for nearshore software development will also be impressed,” he said.
Since 1993 Belatrix has been a leading ITO vendor providing nearshore and offshore outsourcing services from development centers in Mendoza, Argentina and a relatively new center in Donghai, China. From 2001 their focus is on IT offshore outsourcing, with 100% of revenue being generated outside of Argentina and China.
Belatrix achieved the Accelerance Preferred partner level through technical excellence in traditional technologies such as Java, Microsoft .NET, a very strong software testing & QA practice, and mobile applications including apps for the Apple iPhone.
Highly collaborative Agile and Scrum software development is facilitated by Argentina’s smaller time difference with the U.S. and Western Europe for convenient overlap with their normal workday. Belatrix has formally proven its technical and process maturity by obtaining recognized certifications including ISO-9001 Quality Standard and by becoming both a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and a Sun Microsystems Partner Advantage member.
“Over the years we have had opportunities to work with different methodologies, from the very formal Waterfall, RUP and CMMi to the more agile Scrum and Extreme Programming. Based on this experience, we have optimized our project management methodology to provide the right mix of control, visibility and flexibility, while maintaining the best throughput possible,” said Luis Robbio, CEO of Belatrix. “Thanks to our location, most of our clients are in very close time zones allowing them to have a much more active role than they could if their vendor were located in a farther location,” he added.
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.
Accelerance is a Silicon Valley-based global software development firm with over 20 global software development partners in a dozen countries. The Accelerance Global Partner Network is the only online directory of highly qualified, hand-selected and deeply assessed software development companies from around the world with successful track records in developing software for clients. Clients use Accelerance to quickly ramp-up and manage teams of offshore programmers.
