Caroline Van Sickle, Pretty in my Pocket, Inc., Atlanta, GA
I am a technology entrepreneur in Atlanta, GA. The combined average of the hourly development rates I was seeing for Development was about $100/hour and often times more.
I could not afford to continue operating at this rate. However, I was never comfortable going off shore. Everyone had warned me of the risks such as language barrier, no verification process, no guarantees, no face time, etc. However, I had no choice but to take the risk. I got a recommendation on AndolaSoft. They are more than half the cost, they have a can-do attitude, and they are responsive, timely, and easy to work with. We had an established project to begin with and needed further feature development and iteration. Therefore, they dove into highly complex code and knocked it out of the park. It was on me to define the scope and context of the job. Just like any project, the leadership, direction, attention to detail, and QA is critical. Therefore, you cannot simply hand off the project with no direction. They are not mind readers. But, given clear direction and daily scrums, we have had great success. I highly recommend this team.
