Avantica Technologies was founded in 1993 with headquarters in Silicon Valley, California, and a software engineering center in San José, Costa Rica. Today, the company has expanded its engineering centers across Costa Rica and into Peru and is among the largest “Nearshore” software engineering services specialists in Latin America. Avantica has been profitable from its inception and has averaged 30% annual growth since 1995.
From the start, Avantica has specialized in collaborating with both start-up and established software companies, and industry, to rapidly create innovative software. The company’s customer partnerships are often long-term and built on a distributed Agile model focused on quality engineering.
Avantica’s customers include innovative start-ups funded by Accel Partners, Menlo Ventures, Mohr Davidow Ventures, Mayfield Fund, Austin Ventures and other VCs, as well as established product and industry companies. Our software engineering experience includes co-development and testing for our customer’s Mobile, Cloud, Analytic, Consumer Web, Search, Social Networking, Enterprise and Financial apps.
Avantica does software development and QA engineering, not BPO. Our engineers are experienced across the software development lifecycle - from design to development, testing and professional services. During the past 20 years we’ve helped our customers in North America, Europe and Latin America release over 1,600 products.
We’ve developed a distributed Agile engineering methodology that has become part of the Avantica Technologies culture. Our methodology - leveraging aligned time-zones, leading Agile tools and certification, and training - enables Avantica engineers to quickly and productively integrate with our customer’s local engineering team. The result is a highly collaborative engineering partnership that supports rapid, iterative development. We’ve used it to help our software customers successfully launch hundreds of products - over 1,600 during the past 20 years.
Avantica’s software engineering centers are located in the same time-zone as our North America customers. That means you can collaborate in an Agile way with your Avantica engineering team-members during your business day – not the vendor’s. And, unlike China or India, if you need to meet with your Avantica development or QA engineering team in person the flight to/from Costa Rica and Peru takes only a few hours.
With three modern software engineering centers and hundreds of talented software developers, testers, architects and project managers in Costa Rica, Avantica is the largest software engineering services company in Costa Rica. And, with a fourth, rapidly growing center in Lima, Peru, Avantica is one of the largest Nearshore companies in Latin America. The benefit for customers is a partnership that insures the best possible access to the most talented software engineers in either country.
Why do start-up and established software companies, and industry partner with Avantica? The business reasons include cost savings; rapid scalability; availability of talented, English speaking software engineers; specific technology experience; Agile expertise; and quality software engineering. Our customers find they are able to get work done rapidly and economically partnering with Avantica. The Avantica’ Nearshore model is distributed Agile, English language, same U.S. time-zone, economical and quality engineering across the SDLC – design, development, QA and professional services.
