EPIC Software Development was founded with a mission to deliver better value for clients who have long-term vision for their applications. Our culture encourages staff members to ask questions, communicate in a direct and transparent manner and Think Ahead to provide the highest long-term value of our clients projects.
Our Nearshoring solutions development model combines highly experienced, local project managers with a team of offshore software engineers in the same time zone who have decades of combined experience. It’s this mix of lower cost, sustainable talent, proper planning, and proven process which delivers exceptional results and is why our clients stay with us for so long.
Before we are able look into the future, we must first analyze outcomes from our past.
The EPIC culture encourages a straight-forward approach to communication – we tell it like it is. No sugar coating, no avoiding clear and honest discussions of both successes and failures. Lack of planning, poor communication, and inflexibility drive projects into the ground. We think ahead to ensure smooth sailing through planning, process, and delivery. It’s this methodology combined with our nearshoring model which consistently delivers the best return on investment for our clients.
What is Nearshoring?
With so many organizations chasing an increasingly smaller local talent pool, many are looking outside of their geographic region to attract and retain top talent. Offshore talent acquisition can offer reduced costs and more stable workforces, but a lack of communication and broader strategic skills often times increase the long-term costs of the project. Nearshoring leverages an offshore talent pool working in the same time zone and combines it with local project managers who streamline the communication and helps with longer-term strategic planning. And our Global Project Management (PMO) office gives you access to mature, experienced managers who carefully plan, document, and communicate combined with the low-cost infrastructure of offshoring.
