Rather than the traditional routes of either direct employment or agency outsourcing, FundCalcs works in collaboration with a global alliance of colleagues from the highest levels of software development. Given the growing preference of cutting edge developers to retain control over their choice of project and partners, FundCalcs' network provides exceptional access to top level expertise on a project basis.
This developer network has grown over the years through technology groups, international conferences and shared goals of working on high quality, highly successful projects. The latest software development tools and practices facilitate remote collaboration without the need to share any sensitive information. Source code repositories are kept strictly separate from any system data or server access, as per standard best practices.
The ability to run projects with a dedicated group of world class experts, without engaging any "middle-man" layer, enables FundCalcs to develop the highest quality software with maximum efficiency and minimum risk.
