Remote solutions

Hendrik Impens
posted on 28/6/21
Working together with Global Brainforce works like a charm.
Together we worked towards a solution that is extremely complex, in a vessels environment that is not helping in this complexity. Not going into deep on our solution, I am positively surprised of the teamwork offered by GB. We encountered many aspects that were not yet in the knowledge database of the GB team as they are atypical, however they were always able to get familiar with the technology and helped us in finding solutions.
Although the mayor part of the team is working from Manilla, the time differences between Belgium-Philippines were never an issue.
Thanks Global Brainforce! I hope we can continue our story together :-)

Good .Net MVC Enterprise Software Developers

James Ward
posted on 4/3/21
Developers are able to write and apply complex logic to our .net MVC web application. Deliverables have been, but have had problems with timelines due to deployment issues where fixes reoccur. Overall, the developers have done a good job with meeting user requirements. An additional problem is that we are paying for the requested work before it's done which at some point could lead to problems. It's like buying something that you don't have yet.

Global Brainforce is committed to deliver the solution which will meet us, as customer, best. They have shown flexibility in approach and execution of projects, meeting the expectations of our company.
Although the market / application as requested by us was new to them, they were eager to learn and understand the requirements on short notice. It is a pleasure to work with them.

We had a web based application with according data collection structure developed by Global Brainforce. The application was made in record time. Cooperating with their developers was easy as their English is superb. Their development teams comprise highly skilled engineers and work effectively.

Global BrainForce Executive Interview

Robert Giezen
Robert Giezen
CEO, Global BrainForce
Kindly share your feedback on how GoodFirms has been doing so far in increasing your visibility among potential clients.
GoodFirms is great as it helps our potential clients make an informed decision in choosing a company that provides better services.
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
Global BrainForce (GBF) was founded in Amsterdam in 2012 by Robert Giezen. He envisioned that the future of IT and software development jobs would belong to remote work. Video meeting, augmented reality, and cloud computing enables companies to work with a global software development team.

We started our main development capacities in the Philippines due to the country’s wide range of highly trained IT professionals, and the ease of communication. Due to Robert’s close affinity with the Philippines, he knew that the Philippines has a distinctive competitive advantage over other outsourcing destinations- that is English language proficiency, being the country’s second language and the primary medium of instruction.

We focus on staff augmentation – a model that gives our clients full control over recruitment, and when the selected software developers are hired with us, they act like our client’s full-time employees. They’re dedicated to our client’s business and motivated to deliver high-quality work, while GBF takes care of the rest.
What is the story behind starting this company?
After 30 years of working in the IT and Software Development space, I wanted to prove that there is no need to make any compromises to work with a remote software development team – that there is a great global top talent, with more commitment and good retention rates, and better scalability than working with local available employees.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We provide staff augmentation services with software development process services. All our staff is internal.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
We are an experienced software development company, while our competition just provides a desk.
We focus on providing experienced staff.
Our lower attrition rate (4.5 lower).
No long processes to start, the average time to hire is weeks, not months.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
Our clients stay for years. Most of our clients are tech companies, but we also work with other industries.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
  • Software development teams.
  • Software developer staffing augmentation.
  • Software development process consulting.
  • Software testing.
  • IT relocation.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
Very high satisfaction.

We are very flexible in our collaboration, we see our clients as partners.
  • One month's notice to scale needed capacity.
  • We use our experience and time to match the right talent with the culture of our clients.
  • We assist the client with our software development process management experience.
  • Each client gets an HR manager assigned to assure good communication.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
Full-time support
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
Rate per Worked hours.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
We prefer not to do projects but collaborate with the client by assigning a team that can work with the client.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2021?
2022.. 3000 - 4000 USD per month.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
Our goal when we created Global BrainForce in 2012 was the same as it is in 10 years: to accelerate the advent of remote software development teams by finding and retaining the best possible, flexible, and quality software development teams globally.
