During its first twelve years, GlobalNow had the good fortune of being able to establish great relationships with worldwide IT firms, freelancers and employees; creating an ecosystem of trusted and talented resources. This resource pool expanded significantly over the last several years to meet demand from major projects, resulting in talented presence extended across the U.S., Europe, LATAM and Asia; and included the forming of our sister company – GlobalNow Costa Rica – located in San Jose Costa Rica.
The foremost focus of all of our team members is to provide clients with great customer service. This includes both the initial delivery of the solution as well as ongoing support and enhancements. We believe great customer service includes attributes such as project transparency, meeting commitments, being responsive to issues and flexibility to incorporate change. Building a relationship with our clients based on these values is ultimately what enables successful engagements.
