Bringing the Outsourcing Market to SMB's
If you wanted to outsource a software development project today, your company would fall into one of three categories:
You have a medium or large project that meets the minimum budget threshold for a large outsourcing firm.
You have a strong in-house software team, with a strong culture and proven processes. You can augment your team with offshore staffing, and rely on your team to manage the offshore resources.
You're stuck. You have a small project and no in-house software team.
General Managers of Asian outsourcing shops indicate that a budget of $250-300K USD is their low end for accepting projects.
Enter Outsource Lite
Factory Direct Pricing - eliminate the overhead of the middleman.

Outsource Lite is a vendor managed software outsourcing initiative that allows SMB's to take advantage of 3X cost reductions over onshore system deliveries. The philosophy is pretty simple: we want to lower the commitment and reduce the risk, so that SMB's feel comfortable enough to test the waters with an outsourcing partner.

How Does It Work?
The first step in the process is Project Scoping Lite, a FREE 3 day consultation that results in a report that identifies:
Project Hi Level Requirements
Cost, Schedule and Risk
This is a zero commitment deliverable - if you don't like our recommendations, walk away. If you choose to proceed, the next step is an Agile implementation as outlined here.
Assessing the Results
Once your Outsource Lite project is completed, you will have the opportunity to objectively assess the results on your own terms. Once again, no sales people will be involved trying to drum up another project. That part is entirely up to you. If you are pleased with the outcome, you might want to engage for another Outsource Lite project, or graduate up to a full Application Delivery. The only difference between the two relates to the size of the project, which affects some of the planning activities and other project controls.
Start your company outsourcing program off on the right foot with Outsource Lite. Work with a successful partner, and don't hesitate to get in touch for your outsourcing needs.
