Automation Excellence (AE) is a company started by a homeschool family in 1998. AE serves clients through software automation testing – providing services like load testing and website functionality. About 6 years ago, AE faced a crisis. Like any company, they needed a higher Return on Investment (ROI) than their competitors. However, the crisis was that their competition followed a disappointing trend to hire offshore employment. This made it seemingly impossible for AE to keep American employees and maintain a high ROI.
