The article discusses how Rafael M. Lopes expanded his consulting firm, the Envien Group, by finding cheap programming over the Web. In the beginning, Envien was being continually underbid by computer whiz kids. In June 1999, Lopes came across eLance Inc., a company that allows its customers to post projects and review bids from contractors worldwide on-line. Envien can offer more competitive prices for more ambitious projects to an expanded client base within and outside the U.S.
