Have a look at clickatell.com too. I can not tell how good they are but they were one of the first in that business.

comment How can I convince cowboy programmers to use source control?
I am a .NET guy and almost always have worked with SVN. With the TortoiseSVN Windows explorer extension this is almost as "easy" to work as with "raw files". Would that be an option for your team to consider?

More seriously: I would consider a driving instructor be more experienced the more pupils he/she has successfully prepared for the exam, not the driven kilometers alone. Same goes with programmers.
