We provide a platform which boldly improves the complex structure of IT outsourcing industry in Asia. Today,the industry is under bad conditions. Most software houses and freelance engineers have few direct connections with clients that need human resource,and vice versa. Eventually, many human resource agencies have appeared. Furthermore,it's usual that agencies make contracts with other agencies. Because of this multiple-layered contract, clients pay unrightly high fees. Now,Our platform realizes direct connections among software houses,engineers,and clients. On our platform.. - software houses and engineers can register their information to appeal to clients directly. - clients can scout for all engineers registered. - all services are free. - we plan to develop additional services such as contract management system and human resource management system. We plan to obtain information of 700,000 engineers and 15,000 software houses in Japan in 5 years. Then We will reach Asia. Read more
