Latin American Nearshore Leader in Cloud, SaaS and Mobile Apps Continues Growth.
Mt. View, CA, June 4 – Avantica Technologies, the largest Nearshore software engineering services company in Costa Rica, and one of the largest in Latin America, has opened a new development and testing center in San Carlos, Costa Rica. The new center specializes in developing and testing applications for the Cloud, SaaS and Mobile markets in North America, Latin America and other global regions.
The 15,000 square foot center, located on two acres in the city’s center, replaces an older center in San Carlos operated by Avantica Technologies (Avantica) for the past 5 years. The new, modern facility includes amenities such as high-speed fiber optic broadband, sophisticated security, and access to external green areas. Avantica, founded 20 years ago, operates three software engineering centers in Costa Rica and one in Lima, Peru. The company has 400 employees including software architects, developers, QA engineers and project managers, and has helped its customers release over 1,800 software projects.
Mario Chaves, CEO of Avantica said: “Avantica has experienced rapid growth as both emerging startups, established software companies, and industry corporations continue to realize the quality, productivity and economic benefits of a software engineering partner located in the same North America time-zone. A direct result of that growth is the need for additional facility capacity for our employees, which the state-of-the-art center in San Carlos delivers.”
Unlike remote Indian or Eastern European outsourcers, there is never more than a three hour time-zone difference between Avantica’s bi-lingual software engineers and its North America customers. As a result, Agile development and testing, which prioritizes real-time, non-hierarchical collaboration and rapid software iteration, is possible. Avantica’s engineers are experienced with popular Agile tools such as Jira, Rally and Pivotal Tracker.
Another factor fueling the company’s growth is the recognized talent of its software engineers. Technology analysts including Gartner and Tholons have highlighted Costa Rica and Peru’s respected universities, stable governments and rapidly growing economies as underlying factors.
Jose Pablo Rodríguez, General Manager at Avantica San Carlos commented: “In the last ten years, the Northern Zone of Costa Rica has grown significantly achieving strong leadership within software development. Avantica has played an important role through its collaboration with local universities, private enterprise and local government; all coordinated by Costa Rica’s Northern Zone Development Agency. The result is growing demand by North American companies for Avantica’s talented Nearshore software engineers.”
North America growth startups backed by Sequoia Capital, Google Ventures and other venture firms have partnered with Avantica’s engineers to rapidly tap into both development and QA engineering capacity. Other, more established Internet and mobile app companies are also utilizing the company’s talented engineers to support projects ranging from next generation product introduction, product integration from acquisition, and core product support. Avantica also works with banking and energy companies and has helped its customers release over 1,800 software projects.
