As you probably know, there is an endless pool of outsourcing services companies out there. While you definitely can conduct a "race to the bottom" around price, there are other equally-important criteria to consider.
When augmenting our own R&D, the ability to trust who we work with on our IP (read: business) is paramount - and in that 8allocate never failed us. We knew that they will work should-to-shoulder with us, and if & when there was a problem, they would own it and see that it is resolved. Everyone we worked with, from the top down, was nice, helpful, and cared about our joint success. I have personally recommended them to multiple fellow founders, and will continue to do so.
