"…They were able to meet a tight price target and it is clear to us that their skill base is far better than many others who claim a broad skill base. In particular we have been most impressed by their ability to resolve unexpected problems with little effect on completion dates."

Dedicated Team

Since our inception, contracting our highly-skilled engineers on a dedicated basis has been the preferred form of collaboration for most our clients - start-ups and enterprises alike. (see our Featured Case Studies) Our hourly rates are among the lowest in the world for the services of professionals of a comparable skill set. Such form of partnership is usually cheaper for our clients and is ideal for long-term highly iterative projects where the requirements change frequently. Additionally, our clients feel more comfortable when they have the certainty of working with the same team that is exclusively dedicated to their product. Our advantages are:

Highly skilled low cost professionals
Because of our strategic location, we have access to the highly-skilled low-cost labor market in Belarus. We hire only top 10% professionals, we pay them competitive salaries, and we train them with the latest IT techniques. You can interview our candidates over the phone as you would interview domestic hires, and you are always welcome to come to Belarus in person. Our engineers are certified by industry leaders such as Microsoft, Teradata, Oracle, BrainBench and others. All of them speak English fluently, so you can expect them to seamlessly integrate into your company's culture and to work under the direct supervision of your project managers. We have one of the lowest turn-over rates that allows our clients to work with the same people for years. 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 service without the burden of the associated expenses.

Excellent communication, status tracking, and reporting
We assist our clients in establishing excellent communication processes 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 using either their company's or ours centralized project management and status tracking tools. 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.

Convenient location
Our main development facility is in Minsk, Belarus, which is a two-hour flight away from Frankfurt, 3 hours from London, and 7 hours from New York. We can easily send our people onsite for work or tainting, and we are always happy to host your managers in Belarus if you want to meet your team in person. Our office is located in the very heart of Minsk downtown in a prestigious business district one block away from the White House of Government and in less than 8 minutes drive from the US, UK and Germany Embassies. There are plenty of hotels, most beautiful squares, famous national restaurants, and tourist sites nearby that we would be happy to guide you around.

Time-zone advantage
Many our US clients found the way to double the speed of their software development lifecycle due to the difference in time zone, i.e., our developers upload their work at the end of their day, which coincides with the beginning of the day when our clients' domestic teams start working. That effectively enables close to 24h-around-the-clock development, substantially speeding up product's time-to-market. At the same time, there is still enough overlap to schedule all-hands cross-functional meetings via Skype or videoconferencing tools.

Scalability of the workforce
You are flexible to contract any number of people for however short or long period of time. Since we work with several clients, we can afford maintaining a pool of instantly available high-demand professionals whom we can easily add to the projects of clients who grow quickly. Even if we might not have a professional with the required skill set, we usually send to our customers a list of resumes of the candidates whom we can quickly hire on the local labor market. That keeps our clients away from the risks of hiring extra staff whom they might not immediately need.

Reselling under your brand
If your company provides outsourcing services too, you can have our professionals work transparently under your brand. You might be interested in this form of collaboration if you have an immediate need in professionals with a specific skill set for a limited period of time whom you cannot quickly hire on your local labor market. For example, your client may request high-performance database optimization, which might not be your strength at the moment. Alternatively, you might be just seeking ways to cut costs. Our most successful example of a similar partnership is the on-going collaboration with Teradata company. Through hiring ESI professionals, Teradata succeeded to fulfill its contractual obligations towards its major EU client DHL Express by delivering a series of sophisticated Business Intelligence projects running on 10TB-large data warehouses.
