VIENNA, Va., Oct. 1 // -- Emergent Game Technologies has chosen GlobalLogic, Inc., the leader in global product development, as its preferred software development partner. Emergent is the single source for all the tools developers need to build, test, manage and expand interactive games. GlobalLogic will help Emergent expand its software production facilities by providing a dedicated team of engineers working as a virtual extension of Emergent's in-house team. Emergent will leverage the team to help it execute its vision during a period of strong growth while remaining in full control of its game technology and architecture. Initially, GlobalLogic will provide quality assurance and testing services to help Emergent bring a brand new product to market later this year.
Geoff Selzer, CEO of Emergent, commented: "Emergent's goal is to give game developers the tools they need so that they can focus on innovation in content, game experience and genre. They expect our software to be flexible, utterly reliable and delivered on time."
Selzer continued: "When considering a long-term development partner, we were looking for a company that understands the particular needs of a software provider and the demands of developing a commercial product. We also needed that company to match our rigorous internal quality standards. In GlobalLogic, we found a company that embodied integrity, professionalism and excellence at every level of the organization, from CEO down."
Peter Harrison, CEO of GlobalLogic, added: "Our relationship with Emergent -- and, indeed, all our clients -- is very much a partnership. We help them globalize their teams and tap into highly specialized skills without the loss of control and visibility that typically comes with a traditional outsourcing relationship."
