Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Companies that want to get the advantages of offshoring software development without dealing with the potential drawbacks can now tap into nearshoring opportunities in South America. Accelerance – the global software outsourcing authority – recently certified two software development firms in Bolivia and Peru for its exclusive Global Partner Network.
These certifications are in response to rising North American interest in working with South American software development firms. Wary of potential time zone issues and cultural clashes, North American companies often look for alternatives to outsourcing software development to India or the Far East. South America provides many of the same benefits but eliminates several hurdles.
“The best South American software development firms can deliver top-notch quality work at one-half or even one-third the hourly fee of a U.S.-based development firm,” says Steve Mezak, CEO, Accelerance. “But since the time zones in South America are close to our own, it’s relatively easy to schedule conference calls. You can travel there in a day. And because their culture is similar to ours, you can avoid the subtle miscommunications that can hamper a working relationship.”
Accelerance’s new Bolivian partner focuses on Microsoft .NET and Java development, software testing, and quality assurance. The company employs 50 software engineers – and there’s a steady supply of hungry new talent from among the 9,000 computer engineering students at the local university. The company is well equipped for projects that require a team of two to 10 engineers.
Meanwhile, Accelerance’s new Peruvian partner specializes in Ruby on Rails development – a boon for companies that need help building applications on accelerated timeframes. In addition to providing this much-in-demand skill, the firm offers mobile and social media development services.
Accelerance continues to search the globe for qualified software development firms, saving companies the trouble of doing so when deadlines are looming. All members of the Accelerance Global Partner Network have passed a strict assessment and qualification process, thus proving that they are the “best of the best” in offshore software development.
“In my recent travels to evaluate and certify our new South American partners, I was amazed not only by their technical skills and professionalism, but also by their proficiency with written and spoken English,” Mezak remarks. “The engineers really understand the nuances of American language and culture. I invite companies throughout North America to contact Accelerance and take advantage of the outstanding value these partners provide.”
