Absolutely. Send us yours or we’ll provide one that works for both of us.
For sure. We’ve worked on thousands of software development projects over the years so we’re old hands where planning and consultancy are concerned.
We actively collect pricing data from across the global software market. This helps us make sure our clients get the best value for money, and gives us the info we need to produce our annual development pricing guide.
The short answer? We’ve been doing this a long time and have seen what works and what doesn’t. You can’t buy decades of experience like that. Actually you can – but we don’t charge for it.
The longer answer is that as market demand increases for a specific skillset, we evaluate the regions where clients can obtain those services – keeping cost, quality, and convenience front of mind.
- longlist up to 60 vendors in each market
- review each company’s history, background and ownership
- check their references
- schedule a series of online meetings with the most promising
- talk to each company’s management team, assessing their vision, goals, and ability to attract and retain great developers
- make our shortlist and schedule in-person meetings with our preferred teams
- meet every shortlisted team face-to-face
Finally, we carry out a small pilot project with our finalist teams, and if successful, we consider them a trusted, vetted participant in the SourceSeek network.
We focus on creating lasting relationships between both parties.
Matching isn’t just about finding the right skills and experience; it’s about understanding how each client fits into the software vendor’s world. There needs to be a cultural match too.
In this way, clients get top developers and the right amount of communication and account management. When a truly mutually beneficial relationship is put together, everyone benefits.
Usually just a few days. First, we make sure we understand exactly what you’re looking for – before you pairing with a team whose services precisely match your needs. We then introduce you to the team and let you decide if you want to move forward with them.
Absolutely nothing. We work for clients free of charge – though we collect a finder’s fee from our development partners.
Our development partners are located everywhere from Eastern Europe to South America – as well as Asia and Africa. We know they’re good – we’ve meet them all in person and have seen what they’re capable of professionally. Basically we do all the travel and vetting for you!
You will. Once you proceed with the partner we match you with, you’ll work directly with that team.
