Success Story: ITInvolve
One startup with a solid solution.
ITInvolve used Jalasoft to get to market 3x faster—with one-third the cost.
Texas-based ITInvolve is a startup with a mission: “To provide our customers with the ability to proactively understand the impact of changes in order to substantially reduce the risk of downtime.”
They knew they needed to bring their innovative solution to market quickly, before the opportunity disappeared. But they were working on a budget. Their challenge wasn’t unique. Like any software venture, profit can’t be made until the product hits the streets. Until then, the high cost of Research and Development can become an overwhelming expense and burden.
The answer? Minimize development costs and get to market faster. To do that, ITInvolve’s co-founder and CTO, Rob Reiner, turned to Jalasoft for an offshore solution that worked.
Better productivity. Lower cost. Faster learning curve.
Jalasoft quickly put together a team of three highly-trained developers in Bolivia to support the initial phase of software development. The team came up to speed with ITInvolve’s development platform at an incredible pace. Soon four additional engineers—including QA resources—were added. In just four months, the team was on pace to launch ITInvolve’s inaugural enterprise solution ahead of schedule.
The impressive part? This team started without a single line of code.
“Jalasoft has been a well-kept secret in the Software Industry.”
“During my many years as VP of Engineering and CTO at NetIQ, I was blown away by Jalasoft’s terrific talent at an amazing cost,” Reiner says. “You just can’t beat the productivity—they speak fluent English in our time zone!”
“I already knew I could count on their developers and testers for exceptional quality, efficiency, and positive attitude. It made it very easy to decide who was going to build my new product.”
“The launch would have taken three times longer.”
“Another huge advantage with Jalasoft is that you only pay for the engineers on the job, but they assign People Managers and Project Managers at no cost,” Reiner says. “That means I always know that the project stays on track and my engineers are taken care of.”
Efficiency. Reliability. Affordability. It all adds up to a winning solution for ITInvolve. “Without Jalasoft, building the same team in the U.S. would have cost us three times as much and the launch of our product would have taken three times longer.”
The benefits of Jalasoft for ITInvolve:
• Increased productivity (same time zone)
• Seamless integration
• Easier communication
• Faster development and launch
