A lot of companies go offshore for software development but most fail. So, why will you be different?
Deliver results to the stockholders on a fixed budget.
Welcome to every CIO’s biggest challenge:
Commodity, salt mines, headcount. Resources, contractors! Sounds cold and heartless,
doesn’t it? It’s because that’s been the mentality of utilizing offshore software development
companies in the past. Sure, you can get a decent hourly rate. But, once you add up the cost of communication
, delays, rework, and management over-site…it didn’t save you as much as it looked like on paper.
We're different. Check us out.
Doing business from a distance is easy.
You can’t just pull a few people into a room and have an ad-hoc white-board discussion on-the-fly either. It takes a bit of planning and a whole lot of discipline. We’ll help you to be a successful business that is productive and effective even though the distance. Rich collaboration tools help bridge the distance and communication challenges. Our clients utilize VoIP phones, video conferencing systems, and other desktop collaboration tools to make your remote office seem like it's next door.

Not just partners... Friends!
“We have partnered with Informatech on two different projects over the past 8 years. When I joined Teletech Technology there was no hesitation to build our Development team in Costa Rica with ITCR. ITCR has an innate ability to source the very best talent and provides the best tools and environment one would expect from a leading near-shore firm. I have worked on several Software Development teams and by far our Dev team at ITCR is the most talented and productive. We have seen next to no attrition over the past 4 years and it’s this domain expertise that sets them apart. The culture we have created ITCR allowed us to build market differentiating apps while creating a fun environment at the same time. I’m proud to call our Dev team at ITCR the best Software Development team in the world and an extension of my family.”
“1-800 Contacts has worked with Informatech employees for over 2 years now. The people make Informatech a good fit for us. They have worked with us to find the right caliber of developers and software testers needed for our business. In addition, their environment enables us to keep and maintain our team members with minimal turnover. There is also added value in working with a team that is in the same time zone as our company as it enables effective communication between our teams. 1-800 Contacts is very pleased with their team at Informatech and their knowledge in helping develop high quality software applications.”

All investment and out of pocket start-up costs are the responsibility of the Client, and Informatech Costa Rica will act in the capacity of management consultants to guide you through the complexities of this process. This process would take several months to complete and you will operate under our business entity until the facilities and legalities are setup and ready. At that point, it will be transferred to the you directly for a reasonable transfer fee. After that, you will have a fully-functioning remote software development office of software engineers that you can be proud of. Gotta love the rainforest!
