Bridgewater, NJ (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Mantra Information Services has always maintained a reputation for developing quality web and mobile applications for many industry leading companies. That high standard was part of their reasoning for shutting down their foreign facilities in India. U.S. companies have taken notice of the app firm’s patriotic ‘reshoring’ initiative. The Bridgewater NJ based app development company continues their hiring efforts to meet growing demands from its clients.
When they closed their overseas location in October 2013, the company had a plan to replace the talent they had with American developers in 6 months. Using recruiting websites LinkedIn, Employyd.com, and Indeed as well as personal references has been helpful in filling tech firm’s one third of openings. Company is hoping to fill remaining positions in the next 3 months.
“The reshoring decision has been vital. We are now able to shift our focus to the front-line of our business than managing remote teams. The trend of hiring local application developers is growing fast and we are able to join hands with the clients who prefer working with a local team,” said Mantra CTO Maulik Shah, “There is definitely a struggle for us in finding quality developers locally but we are hopeful to fill our remaining openings in next few months.”
With its reshoring initiative, Mantra has slashed operating expenses and greatly increased productivity. This is largely due to increased efficiency and reduced management overheads thanks to everyone being local and not being blocked by language and cultural barriers.
The biggest benefit for Mantra has been the positive response they’ve received from clients and potential customers. Along with the growing trend of bringing jobs back to America, companies are putting more and more emphasis on their vendors being “made-in-America” firms. The paradigm overhaul has aided Mantra in gaining traction in the highly competitive app development market and has helped the company secure several new accounts. Publication like NJ Biz even went a step further by featuring Mantra’s reshoring story on the front page.
By bringing the positions back to U.S. soil Mantra and other companies see their desirability shoot skywards in a trend that is likely to continue.
