Tabpear was formed out of the need for a cash-strapped web start-up to grow its coding resources.
The start-up's founders soon discovered that accessing local talent was cost- prohibitive, whilst the available alternatives, Freelancer websites and traditional offshore development centres simply did not cater for the needs of a typical SME.
What was needed was a new type of IT offshoring centre... one able to deliver cost- effective resources on-demand, to clients of all shapes and sizes, with minimal fuss and maximum agility.
Tabpear was born... entirely flexible and infinitely scalable, our pool of best- in-class developers, work in teams of various sizes, delivering specific projects, or as a seamless extension of your existing workforce.
