A Series of Forbes Insights Profiles of Thought Leaders Changing the Business Landscape

“Capitalism demands the best of every man – his rationality – and rewards him accordingly. It leaves every man free to choose the work he likes, to specialize in it, to trade his product for the products of others, and to go as far on the road of achievement as his ability and ambition will carry him.”–Ayn Rand, For The New Intellectual

What is a Lithuanian-born, Ayn Rand-quoting, Computer Science and software engineer doing to re-think the software design and development consulting business?  Aurimas Adomavicius and his four partners (all Lithuanian-born) created Devbridge Group to not only bring their clients a higher level of craftsmanship in building software solutions, but to also provide an unusual business model that focuses on providing full transparency in its billing and customer service.

“We’ve been in business for six and a half years now. We consider ourselves to be an engineering partner to our clients and focus very heavily on enabling businesses through technology,” says Adomavicius. Clients come to us because we guarantee delivery of a digital project to market in a defined time and budget and we have a proven method and workflow to do so.”

Devbridge positions itself as an international software design and development company that builds comprehensive, custom solutions for enterprise mobile and web, with elegant design aesthetics to deliver exceptional results for category leaders in manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, and retail. The company produces more than 100,000 engineering hours annually, building custom cloud-based and mobile solutions for mid-market and enterprise clients such as The Art Institute of Chicago. While growing fast, the business was bootstrapped from the beginning and has yet to seek outside financing.

“We started as consultants. All of the partners in the business worked in different areas of the technology industry.  We worked for different organizations, and started consulting at nights and on weekends. At some point in time, we said we have enough work that we could open our office and quit our jobs; just start doing this on our own and have our own business,” says Adomavicius. There were five of us when we started the company in 2008. Since then we’ve doubled in size each year and now have 125 employees in three offices.”

Perhaps unique to the category and among consulting services in general, Devbridge believes in complete transparency in the way they work with customers and how they bill for their work. “We actually have applications and tools that we built for ourselves that show our clients how we operate on a day-to-day basis and how we guarantee the delivery of the product.
