This morning I had the privilege to stand alongside Perficient President and CEO Jeff Davis, as well as Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, to announce that Perficient will establish a domestic delivery center in Lafayette, Louisiana.The addition of the Lafayette-based delivery center will augment our global delivery centers in China, India and Macedonia, which for more than 10 years have provided critical offshore capabilities to our customers while complementing our technology, delivery management and industry vertical expertise and capabilities across North America.
I’m so pleased to share this exciting news with the multi-shoring community. At Perficient we not only strive to provide the best experience to our customers but pride ourselves on being a trusted advisor to our clients as well.
I believe Jeff Davis said it best this morning when he stated that being a trusted advisor to our clients depends on having the capability and the expertise to staff the right skills, in the right place, at the right time. We strongly believe our new Lafayette-based center will broaden our flexibility and capacity to serve our growing roster of clients.
It’s an ideal location with an educated workforce and proximity to several universities and technical colleges, and is well supported by local and state leaders focused on economic growth.
Additionally, the domestic delivery center will be patterned off the same proven global delivery model and Agile methodology that we’ve used in our existing development centers. We’ll meld in best practices that we employ today throughout our existing U.S. office locations, and will add capabilities and improved service levels that cover the entire spectrum of the software development lifecycle, including:
- Up-front business analysis using leading-edge visualization techniques and high fidelity prototyping
- Software development using a wide range of platforms from Perficient’s strategic partners such as IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and salesforce.com
- Quality assurance and testing
- Up to 24×7 support services through a managed service offering called SupportNet
As we look to the future, Perficient remains committed to providing its clients an optimized global delivery approach. The domestic delivery center will ensure we continually deliver high-quality solutions in the most cost effective way for our customers.
