You don’t have to invest any capital to get the offshore team started. At the same time, our team that integrates tightly with your own core development team and shares its goals and visions.
Team members hired for your offshore development center are not moved to other customer teams. This ensures that you continue to get maximum productivity after the initial domain knowledge transfer.
Our management team has proven experience in setting up offshore development centers for worldwide software product companies. You can leverage this experience to minimize risks in setting up your own offshore development center.
All members of the offshore development center are hired specifically as per your requirements. As opposed to outsourcing (where you would have to pick up members from a pool of available consultants), this approach ensures that all team members possess the required domain experience and have been screened for a team fit.
