Aiming to lead the market for corporate skills testing, eSkill needs to leverage its competitive advantage of client customization as the focus of its ongoing product development. To earn significant market share, eSkill products and services need to be optimized for small companies as well as Global 50 HR departments. “OSF Global Services hit the ground running, taking our original code – which turned out to be shoddy – and rewriting our application that currently serves thousands of corporations worldwide. They have grown from being ‘just’ a strong programming vendor into my most trusted partner in product development, business processes, and analytics. I’m grateful to have been introduced to OSF Global Services over 9 years ago.” – Eric Friedman, CEO, eSkill Inc. "I can't stress enough how important OSF Global Services has been to us in our growth over time as our revenues continue to multiply. The few times we’ve had application issues, their response time is unparalleled. We wouldn't be able to provide the kind of consistency our customers have come to depend on without OSF. I consider them a true and loyal partner on the front lines as I sell. I would recommend OSF Global Services to anyone as their IT solutions provider. They have help propel the eSkill application into a force to be reckoned with.” – Keith E. Nadeau, Senior Account Manager, eSkill Corp.

It has been a pleasure to work with the OSF team and I would definitely recommend and use them for future Salesforce projects.The reason we selected OSF to build our Salesforce integrated Customer Portal was because of their attention to detail, and the level of detail in the proposal we received in response to our RFP. The SOW proposal was very detailed and gave us a full picture of what was required to do the work, the resources needed, the level of our involvement, and a detailed overview of the timeline.The work was executed as planned, completed on schedule, and the end product is what we specced, plus improvements. We are completely happy with the portal. It will definitely be a value added component for our customer facing support interactions.
