The Case for Blended Teams

Using U.S.-based digital product development experts allows for better cultural alignment and understanding of U.S. consumer culture and common business practices. Offshore outsourcing can be appealing for its affordability, but there can be inherent risks sending your data, information and critical product work half a world away. Sparq blends the best of both worlds by assembling U.S.-led, onshore/nearshore teams to help manage risk, improve outcomes and control costs.

Better Cultural and Business Context

Our digital product development experts understand U.S. consumer culture, user experience and common business practices. This means less time needed for understanding and defining business requirements, and less frustration for you.

Real-time Collaboration

Working with teams in a similar time zone ensures seamless communication and faster response times, making true idea exchange and real-time collaboration possible.  This is critical for modern software product development.

Controlled Costs and Reduced Risk

Using a blend of U.S.-based and nearshore experts provides the advantages of clear communication, cultural affinity, the ability to quickly scale and cost effectiveness.

How We’re Different

Our product-minded approach, technical expertise, delivery discipline, and U.S.-led, blended delivery model makes working with Sparq a better experience, with better outcomes.

Flexible, Product-Minded Approach

Sparq is scaled for modern product development processes and delivery infrastructure, but we stay nimble and flexible enough to respond to each of our clients’ unique needs. We follow a product-minded, outcome-oriented approach; giving teams the freedom and responsibility to devise strategies that result in the best product for our clients.

U.S. Founded, Based & Led, Delivering for U.S.-Based Clients

Our U.S.-led, blended onshore/nearshore model provides the immediacy of localized teams, better cultural and business context, with the financial advantages of lower cost locations. This unique model drives productivity, increases efficiency and lowers costs. And ultimately provides a better client engagement experience.

Deep Platform Modernization and Cloud Enablement Expertise

We use leading tools, methods and accelerators for driving speed and quality, while focusing on successful outcomes. We’re technology neutral with breadth & depth across cloud providers, front-end & back-end languages and data tools.

Disciplined Team & Account Management

We follow a mature, enterprise-class team-based account management process and playbook, and execute with discipline and rigor. This ensures agility, alignment and flexibility from engagement kick-off to weekly huddles to QBRs and engagement closeouts.

“I need folks who can actually tell me how to do it a different way and a better way than perhaps how myself or my team might approach the problem. That’s one of the key differentiators we’ve found with Sparq.”

— Chief Technology Officer, ParkMobile

“They own what they do, they feel like a part of your organization, they are sharing the values you have, and are trying to create the same outcome that you’re striving for.”

— Senior Product Manager, Lexipol

“Introducing a new app to the public is difficult, achieving a 98% buy-in is nearly impossible, but thanks to Sparq, our vision became a reality and our business is reaping the reward.”
