There is a common misconception that South African companies need to look abroad to source and procure custom development solutions to take their business forward. Despite what is available on our shores, South African businesses are currently spending up to R3.5 billion each and every month outsourcing major custom software development projects off-shore. 

Did you know that South Africa is right up with its global counterparts, with a wide pool of talented developers, cost-effective solutions, and local support you can work alongside throughout your custom development journey? South African companies have access to wide skills and talent network, with strong graduate programmes that nurture software developers at a level on par with our global counterparts. By sourcing your custom software development needs locally, businesses are not only guaranteed the expertise required to complete projects that are critical to future growth, but they can also compete on price. Benefit from resources that are easy to scale and physical testers deployed to your premises to walk the entire development roadmap with you. 

Explore how Tangent Solutions, Microsoft Application Development Innovation Partner of the Year for 2020, can deploy creative talent and software engineering excellence to custom create your unique competitive advantage.
