Nearshore Software Engineering Services Specialist delivers Agile expertise, time-zone alignment and software quality benefits to high growth startups

Avantica Technologies, one of the largest Nearshore software engineering services companies in Latin America, announced today that early stage U.S. software companies are increasingly turning to the company’s Agile-based development and QA engineering expertise to ensure sustainable engineering capacity growth.

A number of the company’s software customers have utilized their partnership with Avantica to help them get acquired by other, established software companies - including the Software 500. Avantica customers specializing in innovative search engines, performance management, cloud procurement and other solutions have all been acquired.

Henry Marchena, Avantica’s Director of Software Development Services, explained: “Our Web platform, mobile and software product customers in the U.S. are increasingly looking for engineering partners that align with their own business model. Real Agile development; geographic proximity; strong English language and collaborative, not hierarchical methods; are required to help them scale rapidly. Compromise is not an option. Avantica delivers these features.”

Because Avantica’s software engineering centers in Costa Rica and Peru are time-zone aligned with the U.S. - unlike India or Eastern European outsourcers - Avantica’s teams can quickly and seamlessly integrate with customer’s internal engineering teams. The flight from San Francisco, California to San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, is seven hours. That compares to the flight from San Francisco to Bangalore, India, 21 hours.

With the rise of Agile engineering globally, including de-facto standardization among U.S. software startups, Avantica’s Nearshore advantage effectively enables “distributed” Agile development and QA engineering. Real-time collaboration, rapid iteration and quick release of quality software are all possible in this distributed environment. Avantica has doubled the number of certified Scrum Masters in its Latin American centers this year. It’s helped customers execute nearly 1,600 successful software releases.

Other Avantica Technologies startup customers that have been acquired include encryption solutions for smartphones and expense management software. Avantica’s proven ability to seamlessly integrate its talented developers and QA engineers with its customers' internal engineering team is essential to quality software delivery.
