How to Ensure Efficient Software Outsourcing?

Test a vendor’s expertise in practice

You can launch a small pilot project or PoC to get an objective understanding of a vendor’s competencies.

Control outcomes

  • Sign a service level agreement (SLA) with a vendor that outlines expected timelines, deliverables, quality requirements, and responsibilities for project-related risks.
  • Decide on a KPI system to monitor the project’s health without being over-involved in the process.

A sample KPI system:

Establish a communication structure

Decide what resources you’re ready to dedicate to collaboration with a vendor, and establish clear communication flows regarding different aspects of the project.

Our approach to collaboration:

Ensure security of outsourcing

  • Sign an NDA with a vendor to guarantee the confidentiality of your business-sensitive information and intellectual property rights over the project deliverables.
  • Check that a vendor has relevant security measures in place to protect your data (such as IDS/IPS, DLP, SIEM, and others).

Note: Being ISO 27001-certified, we assure the safety of the customers’ information we access during the cooperation.
