Seattle, WA, March 01, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Surge Consulting Group, a full-service software consulting firm providing custom web and mobile software development services, announced today that it has created a new Linked-in group called "No Offshoring" to promote the benefits of employing US based software professionals as opposed to their offshore counterparts.
“We never staff our projects with offshore developers because our clients value professionalism, excellent communication, close collaboration, speed, quality, and domain expertise. In addition, offshore teams are not bound by US laws and can easily steal your Intellectual Property (IP)," said Matt MacKay, CEO of Surge. "Sure, we could be more profitable by off-shoring, but we find that repeat business from our existing clients more than makes up for the lost profits. We created this Linked-in group for like-minded individuals and companies."
Surge has quickly become an industry leader in the outsourced software development industry by consistently outperforming its competitors. Surge accomplishes this in part by hiring only US based software developers, as opposed to offshore software developers.
"We estimate that at least 80% of our competitors have an offshore presence, even when they claim to be US-based," said Erik Oh, EVP of Surge. "We are seeing a trend in the industry where companies are growing weary of the offshore models and are seeking out companies with pure onshore models, like the model we espouse here at Surge."
