OpenERP software development and maintenance for the leading telecom installer in Belgium

“Through daily Skype calls, it feels like the Eastvantage team is an in-house team located on another floor in our building. JFS would definitely recommend Eastvantage as an IT offshore solution. We’ve contacted many other companies to compare their recruitment process, their involvement, and their pricing. Eastvantage proved to be the right choice.”

Software Development Manager, JFS
