Our strengths are Business Intelligence, Behavioral Targeting, Online Advertising, and Real-time Data Warehousing. If your interests lie in any of these areas, with ESI you will have an advantage of working with professionals who have built successful projects for several companies in this field. (see our Featured Case Studies) Our advantages are:

High quality / Low cost
We have developed excellent long-term relationship with many clients who offer BI products and services, and we would be happy to provide you with their references upon request. Since many our engineers are very professional in Business Intelligence / Business Analysis, we can provide BI-software development services at a price much lower than that of our competitors. Added the fact that we have access to the highly-skilled low-cost labor market in Eastern Europe, we are able to offer our clients the most competitive rates for the development and maintenance of high-performance sophisticated BI projects. Working with us removes many hassles associated with hiring domestic staff, adding office infrastructure, paying high salaries and benefits, and incurring termination and litigation costs. We can provide you with the domestic level of BI software development services without the burden of the associated expenses.

Experience in BI / BA field
Throughout its history of serving successful clients in Business Intelligence and Consumer Behavior Analysis space, ESI created a cohesive highly-skilled cross-functional team of business analysts, software engineers, database designers, QA engineers, system administrators, performance optimization specialists, and security specialists. We hire only the best IT professionals with 5-25 years of relevant experience, and we require all new hires to complete an extensive technical training to learn the best coding practices recommended by the industry leaders, such as Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Sun, Oracle, and others. Our engineers are certified by companies such as Microsoft, Teradata, Oracle, and BrainBench. Additionally, we employ several experts with PhD degrees in Mathematics, Data Analysis, Data Modeling, Networking, and Security. We analyze your product requirements in tight cooperation with your on-site team of Product Managers and Business Analysts, and we help our clients to track and prioritize all functionality change requests. That enables our clients to rest assured in the reliability and quality of our service.

Excellent communication, status tracking, and reporting
You can communicate with all our developers in English as if they were in your local office, and you can expect them to seamlessly integrate into your company's culture. We established excellent communication processes with our US and EU clients that include daily Skype meetings, desktop sharing software, video conferences, source control software, project management software, and other distance collaboration tools. Our clients can continuously track the status of all their projects through a centralized project management / status tracking software. You will receive a detailed project schedule that our project managers will update regularly. Finally, our experience with proactive risk management allows us to avoid risks early and to notify you about the potential dependencies and issues as soon as possible.

Scalability of the workforce
Since we work with several BI clients, we can afford maintaining a pool of instantly available high-demand professionals whom we can easily add to your project as soon as you need them. That keeps our clients away from the risks of hiring extra staff whom they might not need immediately. On the other hand, we require our engineers to write the code in a way that your domestic team can easily understand and support in case you choose to bring part of the development back on-shore. Finally, due to the competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits, and team-oriented culture where A-players thrive and learn from other A-players, we enjoy one of the lowest turn-over rates in the country.
