Software development outsourcing should never feel risky.

Whether you need burst capacity for a short-term project or a dedicated team for the long haul, we can help you find the best nearshore or offshore provider so you can outsource with confidence.

Make the right choice.

There’s much more to choosing a remote provider than you might think. It can take up to five months to research all the options, and making the wrong choice could be costly. 

Personal referrals are sometimes helpful, but how relevant is someone else’s experience to your own project? Your software development will have its own specific requirements, in all likelihood involving different verticals, tech stacks, team sizes, certification requirements, time-zone alignment, budget and multiple other factors.

With Accelerance, we can match you with the right nearshore or offshore partner in days, rather than months. Through our personalized selection process, we minimize the risks and maximize the return on your investment – halving the costs compared to what you’d pay for an equivalent level of engineering skills and expertise on the domestic market.

The Accelerance Global Network is a deeply researched database of premium software development providers, evaluated across multiple criteria. Based on information gathered through this in-depth verification process, which includes on-site assessments, we have:

  • Fully investigated companies in the top 3% of the marketplace

  • Identified 250 best-in-class software development providers as certified enterprise-grade partners

  • Mapped expert teams in 40 countries and across 15 time zones

  • Established immediate access to more than 25,000 software engineers

  • Collated software engineering rates in Latin America, Eastern and Central Europe, South Asia and Southeast Asia, ranging from $25 to $85 per hour

  • Created regional guides with detailed and regularly updated information on each country’s economic and political conditions, outsourcing readiness and tech talent pool

  • Catalogued nearshore and offshore partners supporting 100+ technologies and 60+ major industries

Partners that deliver.

Our certified partners range in size from 200 to 2000 developers – large enough to scale, but small enough to care. All have experience with Western business culture, speak good English and have demonstrated technical excellence. Accelerance will work with your key leadership and stakeholders to assess your company’s readiness for software outsourcing and establish an execution plan. Our client package includes:  


  • A shortlist of ideal partners selected from the Accelerance Global Network matched to your specific criteria.

  • Customized web-page profiles of each certified partner, highlighting relevant data and video interviews with company leaders. 

  • A facilitated interview process with the partner(s) of your choice.

  • Assistance with contract and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) negotiation. 

  • Alignment workshops to guide the transition and integrate your in-house and remote teams. 

  • Access to experienced consultants for advice and support as needed, including the option of a dedicated coach to ensure the outsourcing relationship continues to run smoothly.

Not all teams are built the same.

The structure of your remote team will vary, depending on whether your key objective is to extend in-house resources or find a development partner to take on the whole job. 

  • Dedicated Team

This is the ideal option if you want to outsource an entire development project or work that requires specific skills or expertise your company lacks internally. The outsourcing partner will assign a dedicated team to follow the project through, from launch to completion. You negotiate an hourly rate; the partner company provides the workspace, infrastructure and benefits.

  • Team Extension

If your objective is simply to boost headcount, Accelerance can find offshore talent to supplement your in-house team, whether it’s providing specific expertise or extra engineering capacity. Adding extra team members in this way can be useful as either a short-term solution or long-term strategy.

  • Multi-shoring

Offshore resources may not necessarily be best concentrated in one place. The advantages of spreading software development across multiple locations include:

    • Extended hours of productivity – teams operating in different time zones can literally “follow the sun” and work around the clock

    • Specialization – projects can be run across several teams and/or regions to leverage the strengths of one market over another. 

    • Flexibility – some large outsourcing companies have multiple offices or specialist teams spread across different cities or countries. 

    • Distributed risk – multi-shoring provides insurance against factors outside your control, such as geo-political unrest or natural disaster. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have spread teams across different locations so that if one is disrupted, another can pick up the work.
