I am looking for a QUALITY script to connect professionals with clients in the same way that elance, odesk and freelancer do (but all the bells and whistle's aren't required).
I have done a lot of research and found a few very poor quality scripts, usually developed in India. Eg. Getlancer, nLance, iLance, phpprobid etc.
Are there any other options available? From my searches, iLance and getlancer seem to be the best options out of a VERY BAD bunch. Getlancer appears to be very buggy - I was thinking about purchasing the source code and making my own modifications but I imagine the backend/coding would be terrible considering it is an Indian script. Any website design from India immediately makes me want to avoid avoid avoid. iLance seems ok from what I can see from the demo, but it still looks kind of archaic/outdated. And to get the source it is very expensive (reviews aren't very comforting either).
Are there perhaps any native english speaking web development companies who have done this kind of work someone knows about?
