What is tap|LAKESHORE

tap|LAKESHORE is our nearshore solution, which is a cost-effective alternative to offshore testing. Nearshore solutions can not only increase the effectiveness, efficiency, and quality compared to offshore solutions, it can actually save you time and money.

  • Client tools are leveraged via secure VPN connection
  • Client owns the work product
  • Client may hire a portion of the team as employees
  • Ability to do higher level of work than the typical offshore resource
  • Dramatically improved communications

Operating locally and led by a senior lead, the tap|LAKESHORE™ team can operate at our site in Minneapolis or embedded with your team.

Benefits of our Nearshore Solution

  • Our onshore has a similar blended rate to offshore. Great fit for Agile or Iterative shops, because the entire team can work either at the client site or our site in Minneapolis.
  • Makes life easier for client personnel who interface with their testing partner. No costly travel that takes them out of the office for a week or more. No late night conference calls. No waiting until morning for answers on critical issues.
  • Typically, the entire team of client and tap|LAKESHORE™ personnel knows each other, so cohesion, productivity, commitment and effectiveness are greatly enhanced.
  • Our team members are QA pros and testers, not aspiring developers who have been required to do testing as entry level work, and who are anxious to move into development.
