How We Do It: Our Proprietary Approach

Some companies use impersonal algorithms or educated guesses to match you with outsourcing resources. Through Rapid Referral®, Accelerance offers the best of both high-tech and high-touch approaches.

Quantitative Assessment

We evaluate our database of hundreds of potential partners to find those best aligned with your specific criteria.

Qualitative Insights

We gain personalized knowledge of your business to identify the right fit for your organization, team and culture.

While our process is structured, we produce highly customized results.

That’s because we work hard to understand your needs for an outsourcing partner from the outset. Then we draw on our deep insight into our certified partners to identify your matches -  using the most robust assessment of  500+ criteria across these important areas:

Highest English proficiency

Competitive rates by region

Time zone & location options

Specialized software expertise

Key technical certifications

Relevant industry experience

Optimal team size

Cultural fit

Company track record

We take the time to understand your exact technical and business requirements for your software product. From there, we analyze your needs for an ideal outsourcing partner match within days.

Thorough Partner Assessment

We identify your best-bet matches through our unique evaluation process that ranks software development partners across 500+ criteria (business, technical, cost, culture, and more).

Perfect-Fit Recommendations

You’ll receive up to three partner recommendations based on an assessment of your scorecard matches versus your software development and business requirements.

Partner Introductions

We'll present you with several partner options, and you’ll get to know them through several rounds of facilitated virtual meetings. Then we’ll help you evaluate them for the best fit and best deal.

Partner Selection

It’s your choice from among your potential partners. After you make your well-informed decision, we’ll work with your chosen partner to create a formal proposal to your specifications.

The Problem We Solve

In a global market awash with great – and not-so-great – software development firms, finding the right one may seem impossible. There are thousands of confusing options, risky unknowns and tepid qualifications to sort through, as well as hundreds of hours of evaluation. Indeed, some software companies operate with no hiring or training standards, no oversight or support, no guaranteed retention or continuity, no insurance and no easy way to scale or organize.

Don’t gamble with your software development. Trust Rapid Referral® to quickly cut through the clutter to guarantee a top-quality development firm.
