Senior Solution Architect, Leo Burnett
With ScienceSoft, we've been able to reduce our development costs and decrease the timeline on new features and updates. ScienceSoft's attention to detail in how everything is documented and communicated is by far the best of any agency that I've worked with. The communication and agreement process when starting a new project has been by far the easiest to handle and most professional I've seen.
Over the past 10 years we've worked on about ten mobile app development projects with ScienceSoft. It was our first encounter with an outsourcing company. The relationship turned out to be very good, so we saw no need to look for other suppliers.
Founder & CEO, Peek-A-Boo

Our relationships covered multiple areas such as software development of server-based systems with desktop and mobile clients, software testing, software consulting and system integration for our customer. ScienceSoft professional and knowledgeable staff has the willingness to endeavor best efforts to ensure project success.
