CrystalClear Software has deep experience using distributed development tools in software projects. We often work off-site using tools such as telephone, email, Wiki, and many others to collaborate with team members in many locations. This allows us reduce development costs and access expertise that would not be to otherwise available to a project. Our founder has lead and participated in many projects involving distributed development teams.

Many open source projects have greatly enhanced the tools available to effectively manage distributed development projects. Projects such as Linux have demonstrated the ability of distributed the feasibility of distributed development.
