Redwood City, CA (PRESS RELEASE – April 17, 2009) – Accelerance, the company dedicated to taking the risk out of global outsourcing of software development, announced a free online directory of over 40 members of its Global Partner Network beginning today. The 40 offshore software development company partners located throughout Eastern Europe, India, Latin America, North America and Southeast Asia have been meticulously pre-screened and qualified by Accelerance. The entire member directory is available at http://www.accelerance.com/global-partner-network.htm.
“Accelerance is offering this valuable global partners contact information at no charge to encourage companies to discover the benefits of outsourcing,” said Steve Mezak, Accelerance CEO and author of the awarding-winning book Software Without Borders and the Steve Mezak Blog.
According to Mezak, many online directories list tens of thousands of offshore outsourcing companies, but give no information on the competency or quality of any particular vendor. “It’s hard to tell which ones are any good. You can spend a lot of time fishing for vendors, describing a project and reviewing your bids. If you need to build an offshore software development team quickly, then using those other directories and project bidding websites are useless.”
Previously, access to contact information in the Accelerance Global Partner Network was limited to Accelerance clients only. “Our Rapid Ramp-Up consulting service can help pinpoint evaluation criteria and select the partner that best fit their needs,” said Mezak. “But now the entire member directory is freely available and there’s no obligation to use Accelerance services. Website visitors can deal directly with any Accelerance partner they choose.”
Companies considering using global resources to develop software can check the Accelerance Global Partner Network Member Directory to get an overview and sense of depth and breadth of the global network. A convenient form enables contact of multiple selected partners at once.
Accelerance, Inc. offers consulting, coaching, tools and processes to help clients select offshore, nearshore and onshore outsourcing vendors quickly and safely. The Accelerance Global Partner Network of 40+ expert software development vendors in over a dozen countries provides software development services for twenty leading software technologies. Accelerance also guides customers in contract negotiation, offshore engagement set-up, and on-going software development oversight. Additional offshore software development companies may apply and be evaluated for membership in the network over time.
