How an offshore development center can help your business
Nowadays, many businesses think it is essential to extend their IT function by outsourcing some activities to an offshore service provider. At SoftGroup, we can provide you with exactly that and eliminate the expense and risks of creating your own.
At SoftGroup, our core business activity is providing our clients with Offshore Development Centers, otherwise known as ODCs. An ODC is essentially an IT offshore development facility whose primary function is developing software products for other organizations, thereby providing a virtual wing to the client’s existing operation. An ODC provides clients with many outsourcing benefits; it allows them to add or remove resources as their enterprise requirements change, and it gives them high levels of visibility and full control of their development activities.
How to establish an offshore development center
SoftGroup simplifies the process of setting up an ODC. The client tells us about their project requirements and the resources required undertake it. In collaboration with you, we assign the most suitably-qualified personnel to work on the project, and together we define the scope of work. With the right team in place, we brief them on your requirements so that they are able to take your instructions forward and complete the work. So, for the agreed period, you have a fully-equipped ODC at your disposal to bring your project to fruition.
