Nearshore software development eliminates most of the hidden costs of outsourcing because of the transparency and collaboration that is possible when working in close proximity and time zone.
We use famous CMS platforms such as WordPress, Drupal & Joomla. We specialize in various frameworks & languages.
Upcom experts may participate in IT projects as consultants, project managers, analysts, developers, system administrators on a time and means basis.
Our team specializes in the latest development technologies and methodologies, to bring excellence, quality, and cost-effectiveness to your projects. Working on either Fixed Price or Time & Means mode, we can provide entire dedicated teams carrying out the entire project, joint or co-located teams, or individual expert engineers to fill gaps in your in-house teams. We normally provide our own project managers, but if you wish our teams can work under your project manager. Our project development approach is shaped by the Agile method.
Currently, more than 45 employees and 15 external collaborators are part of the Upcom work force.

First we define a project based on the evaluation and the development analysis. Our methodology and the tools we use, are making the outsourcing management process transparent and efficient. We believe that the best way to manage a project is the agile way and that is why we prefer scrum with it’s iterative and incremental methodology. Our team uses Jira for issue-tracking. Everything is recorded, viewed and reviewed. As for the revision control, our choice is BitBucket.
Performing according to the plan is not enough; our goal is exceed the expectations and satisfy client desires before even they become needs. Our ultimate goal is to “bring business and IT together” for the benefits of the client organisation; this can only be achieved when involved parties exceed their limits and manage to perform beyond their short-sighted assignments!
‘Hidden’ deals or agendas are not in line with this code of conduct. Full transparency for the project status to all intervening parties is mandatory. Relative transparency to the financial elements of the project is encouraged, destroying false impressions.
The human dimension is considered of higher priority than all others. Collaborators should never abuse their position against the smaller and less capable in the project, be it collaborators, client representatives or other intervening parties. The adherence to the laws and their spirit is mandatory, while the exploitation of their imperfections for one’s own benefit or for negative impact to others is not in line with this code of conduct.
Professional services are delivered according to the education and previous experience; the influence by non-technical elements or the desires of superiors should not dictate the service delivery. Every activity should consider the requirements of the three major intervening parties of the project: the client, the service provider and the society overall. Delivering services for which required education and/or adequate experience does exist must not exist. Continuous (self)training is expected to maintain the necessary technical skills.
The respect of the individual is expected, irrespective of her social, economic or business position. Client rules and goals should be respected, unless clearly in contradiction to the current code of conduct. Ideas, opinions, suggestions – even on issues mastered by the collaborator – are debated and explained using valid arguments, clearly avoiding superiority syndromes and behaviour. Upcom will take all necessary measures so that clients show the same respect to collaborators.
Collaborators are invited to participate in projects under the condition they are able to commit on the effort estimates they delivered. They are expected to commit on their offer for a limited period following the offer; during this period, if Upcom should start the project, the collaborators are expected to make themselves available to the project for the complete duration originally agreed.
