Pentalog collaborates with numerous software publishers by establishing true win-win partnerships in order to reduce development costs by contributing specific development competences, but also business expertise.
Our teams are often considered as an extension of the Information System Management of the publisher, but they can also take over an entire development project by making use of Agile-type methods that are greatly flexible and adaptable.
Our designer teams can help you draw up a carefully designed graphic chart in order to build a simple, ergonomic and high-performance application.
By choosing the fairest price according to your needs, you can increase the number of services and features present on your software applications without changing your development budget.

Pentalog has been collaborating for eight years with major publishers by setting up dedicated teams, specially trained on our customers' best practices in various fields of activities:
- Real estate management,
- Product and service promotion,
- Management of financial portfolios,
- Gathering and processing equipment information,
- Games etc.
Our activities are mainly centered on the development and testing phases of the modules that are entrusted to us. Our teams also adapt to "collaborative development" by working on the same modules as the internal teams of the publisher, observing the encoding and organizational rules which are requested of us.
Depending on your needs and on your development phase (Prototype, Alpha, Beta, Candidate release or stable version), we can set up tools which allow to manage multiple versions and follow up the evolution of configuration changes.
Towards time to market:
The evolution of technologies and software use practices makes it necessary to rapidly release new versions and to adopt extreme programming practices. Thanks to its numerous experiences in the field, Pentalog can help you benefit from such a technique and its advantages while observing best practices in order to profit from its numerous advantages:
- continually detecting and repairing integration problems,
- alerting on incompatibilities and code absences,
- compilation and immediate testing of new deposits,
- maintaining a version that is always operational for tests and demonstrations.

We can carry out our activities according to different types of contracts: dedicated team, technical assistance or fixed-price contract. For each of these options, the organization is precisely described in the project quality plan at the beginning of the mission in order to guarantee the best quality.
For dedicated teams, we set up quality and quantity indicators that allow you to monitor the quality of the products developed and to coordinate your team.
We adjust the structure of the team depending on your needs, but the standard dedicated team generally consists of:
- one project director situated in your country who is the local contact (in France, Germany, Romania) and the guarantor of the contractual part of the project.
- one project manager on the production site who is the main operational contact of the project. 100% of our project managers speak English.
- one or several team leaders (depending on the team size) who take over the architecture, task allocation and respect of the workloads, deadlines and project rules.
- n developers (depending on the team size)
- n testers (depending on the team size) who perform functional tests and observe requirements according to the specifications.
For important or multi-site teams, we add a Quality Engineer who takes over all quality operations and formalities of your project.
