Business Continuity Process

In today’s era of instability, creating a sustainable software development organization is paramount. Wars and conflicts can disrupt even the most robust operations, and R&D personnel, being human, may face periods where they cannot fully focus on their work.

To maintain uninterrupted productivity, a reliable, integrated, proactive, high-end offshore team is essential. At AppNiv, we excel at this. It’s in our DNA.

Our CEO, Ido Niv, with over 20 years in the industry, brings a decade of experience from HP Software, where he worked in Java development, R&D management, and product management. He successfully established an offshore extension in Romania to support local R&D product development in Israel. Managing both local and remote teams, Ido has mastered the dos and don’ts of this complex operation.

Operating such a setup effectively requires deep expertise. We are here to provide that know-how and assist you on this journey. We thrive on the organizational and technical challenges it presents.

Beyond offering a dedicated team, our CEO Ido Niv remains actively involved, ensuring both the team and the client achieve success in all aspects.

Our Model

Our organization is lean

At AppNiv, we operate with a lean organization. We don’t handle multiple projects or have developers working on multiple products simultaneously. We don’t maintain a bench of idle developers. This ensures that you will never get a developer simply because they are available. We meticulously select candidates from our network and headhunt to find the right fit for your requirements and company culture. We focus on building the right team for the long term. Our pricing is flexible—whether it’s a monthly rate or an hourly rate, every team member is valued, with a budget determined through a thorough evaluation process. You are an integral part of this evaluation, ensuring complete transparency in work hours and days.

Our Pride

We take immense pride in our clients and our team members. They are at the forefront of the products they work on, making a significant impact through innovation and execution. Our team members are eager to showcase their work and contributions. Our main office is located in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, within the Regus office branch. While we love to work from there occasionally, each team decides their office attendance based on their needs. The office features an amazing terrace and view, providing an excellent environment for collaboration. All teams come together once a month when our CEO arrives from Israel, fostering strong bonds and team spirit.
