Legal Document Software
We all want our documents to be perfect, but in today’s world there simply isn’t enough time. Hundreds of legal associations and organizations around the world trust Litera to help get their documents right, so they can focus more time on the work that really matters to the people they serve.
Some companies start outsourcing because they think it's cheaper, but in fact it's not. You shouldn't do it to save money, you should do it if you want to hire a couple of senior C++/C# developers in the next two months, which is possible in Ukraine and most probably not possible in the US.
Usually, we travel a lot and this time we arranged many face-to-face business meetings with potential clients in Chicago.
There are many different ways to get lists of Chicago startups and tech companies. One of them is an absolutely amazing community “Built in Chicago“. We were digging through job opportunities along with other useful information and found that Litera Microsystems was looking for both in-house and remote developers. Luckily, one of the executives at Litera gave us 15 minutes for an in-person meeting where he shared more information about their hiring needs. After that, despite a really tight deadline, we did our best to provide qualified developers on time and on budget.
Challenge & Solution
Litera needed additional software development manpower to maintain existing functionality and implement new enhancements to their LegalDoc products. They were looking for a small team of like-minded, talented developers eager to use a wide range of the latest technologies and tools. Echo software engineers successfully cooperated with the client’s on-site team on improving document management software.
