Avantica Technologies, a leading Nearshore specialist providing software engineering services to both start-up and established software companies, announced today its new client relationship with ArmedZilla, Inc.

“This platform fills a support and service gap missing far too long within the military community,” explained David Johnson, Founder and CEO of ArmedZilla. “Our decision to work with Avantica is based on their ability to integrate their talented software developers and testers into our internal team. They were productive immediately, helping us meet our aggressive release goals.”
Currently, there are 24 million veterans and more than two million men and women serving in the U.S. Military. Many feel a need to share experiences, make new connections while in the military, and stay connected once discharged. ArmedZilla’s site, accessible at no cost, will provide this community with necessary and easy to use support services that will help them in their day-to-day lives. In addition, members can share their stories, be recognized for their service, re-connect with former buddies, and interact with friends, family and supporters.

Avantica’s engineering model is highly collaborative, based on distributed Agile, English language, same U.S. time-zone, economical, with a focus on quality software engineering.
