Business description: Achievo Corporation is a leading global software and information technology (IT) outsourcing provider focused on software development, information technology and professional services. Achievo's local front-end, China back-end business model enables the company to deliver its services in the language of its customers, worldwide, eliminating language barriers. With global offshore outsourcing revenues for software and IT services predicted to reach $29.4 billion USD in 2010, global customers are quickly taking advantage of the significant cost savings that come from working in China. Achievo's China back-end business model delivers on this promise, while also providing efficient, high quality and scalable outsourcing services. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Achievo has offices worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Germany, China and Japan. Achievo's global management team has deep and broad experience in all phases of the software development lifecycle and IT services. To ensure high quality results and an effective interface between Achievo and our customers, we employ the Achievo Development Process (ADP). This unique combination of best practices, adapted by Achievo, provides a disciplined and continuous improvement approach to software development projects, assigning tasks and responsibilities via well-defined roles, workflows, artifacts, standards and metrics. It is a quality-centric, highly scalable methodology that drives our development process, bringing increased efficiencies while reducing costs.
