How to Go Global for Real Results
You’ve been hearing about the low prices offered by offshore software developers and outsourced web development companies for years. You’ve also heard the horror stories of people who decided to “save money” with offshore assistance and ended up all but destroying their companies with delays, cost overruns, bad work product, or complete failure to deliver.

It’s 2018. The global economy is as real as it ever was. Tools like Slack, Skype, HipChat, Facetime and Google Hangouts make communication with others around the world as easy as a phone call to a friend next door. 10 years ago, a lack of face to face communication was listed as one of the biggest “risks” associated with sending your software development offshore.

Too good to be true, right? Wrong.
