outsourcing

In an effort to reduce costs and focus on core business objectives today’s businesses are rightsizing. Many companies today are outsourcing software development and maintenance. Proviyon can help your companyleverage the outsourcing advantage further by moving a portion (or all) of the software development offshore.

However, to many companies offsourcing seems like a momentous risk.Actually, when the right team is on the job, the benefits highly outweigh the drawbacks. Offsourcing provides the lexibility to maintain existing legacy systems while implementing new applications for new environments. In addition, offsourcing gives the customer access to a number of highly qualified IT specialists for client/server applications and eCommerce solutions, as well as lowering costs by operating with a country such as India. By offsourcing to India , some companies can expect to receive as much as 16 to 20 hour per day development cycles and between 20% to 50% cost savings on certain projects.

Our offshore development teams are proficient in diverse industries with technology focus on Microsoft and

Java technologies. Proviyon combines effective business solutions with an Offshore Development Model to deliver custom software. Our Offshore development methodology uses an engagement manager onshore and a project manager with technical team in India.

We recommend the engagement manager (main point of contact) for our projects to be onshore, however, the client can reach the offshore project manager directly if they wish to do so. Regular weekly conference calls and status report also keep the client in control.

Where the nature of the project involves intense interaction on a continual basis, the onsite engagement manager works from the customer site to coordinate project activity with the Offshore Development Center (ODC) and the customer. This onsite presence may involve a single resource or part of the project services team, depending on the nature, size, and complexity of the development initiative.
