WHAT we do
our VALUE drivers
OF BUSINESS SOLUTION DEVELOPMENT
Our full software lifecycle approach provides a complete process from requirements definition and design through development and quality assurance within our teams. Our process reduces the gaps and miscommunication risks and increases the speed in work handoff throughout the development lifecycle. Unlike offshore solution providers, our team works when you do, greatly improving real time communication on high velocity projects.
One of the largest challenges today for organizations is finding and retaining technology talent in today’s competitive market. Gullview Technologies is able to develop and build talent in hard to find and retain skills, leveraging the talent present and the great quality of life in the Brainerd Lakes Area. By locating in Minnesota’s playground, we provide a great work-life balance experience for our employees, leading to great staff stability and longevity.
IMPROVING RETURN ON TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT
Many organizations have resorted to offshore outsourcing to decrease the costs with application software development and maintenance solutions. Over time, these efforts have decreased in effectiveness, because of ongoing quality issues, staff turnover, increased offshore labor costs, and the additional costs present to push work offshore. At Gullview Technologies, we keep work for our customers here in our rural America based locations. Our Rural locations provide a great quality of life, resulting in highly productive team members and workforce stability. This stability enables our teams to build, and retain a deep knowledge of our customer’s business and systems, improving ROI.
IMPROVING SOFTWARE QUALITY
Our Rural Technology Center model combines the strength and rigor of process driven software development and maintenance with our approach of dedicating experienced team members on our teams who develop tremendous knowledge and depth of your systems. By dedicating team members to each client, knowledge builds over time about your business and software applications enabling us to “get solutions right” the first time.
