ABSTRACT
Software providers differ widely in productivity and quality. Traditional means of evaluation, such as CVs and client references, fail to separate the competent from the incompetent. Trialsourcing--having multiple providers create sample pieces of software for evaluation--can help clients select providers. However, trialsourcing poses potential challenges and must be properly implemented.
