By Sibers Outsourcing consultant
With more than 13 years in business, Sibers has so much to offer you and your specific project. From the moment our prospective customers first contact us, they are surrounded with help and expertise from our team of outsourcing consultants. Even though there are many different instruments to advise and inspire our customers, our team of outsourcing consultants may face some difficulty in finding the one that is best – this is because the variety of instruments available is just too extensive.
In an effort to overcome this difficulty, our outsourcing consultants recently organized an internal seminar to review the instruments and tools they have available. They also classified the cases for when choose the most effective tools for both the company and the customer.
The first set of tools used by our consultants is intended to understand the customer’s needs correctly. These tools include a type of wizard that is equipped with questions on all aspects of the project, starting with the business’s purpose for the developed application, what the customer’s design preferences are, and how the app should be unique.
The initial sketching (or wireframing) that is done by the consultant for the future application together with the input of the customer can also make the whole workflow much clearer for both parties.
When the background for the idea is well communicated, it then becomes possible for our consultants to advise on a technical solution for the project and to assure the customer of our capability to execute all aspects of the work. At this stage the technical expertise of our consultants as well as the thorough support of the team leaders take on the leading role. A comprehensive analysis of the requirements and the project’s prospects results in finding just the right technical solution for a project. The consultant’s tools for this step include a stack of questionnaires for each type of development technology, along with the extensive Sibers’ portfolio that contains more than 900 completed projects.
When aims (customer needs) and means (technical solutions) are clear, it is much easier to define the form. Once defined, the consultant can make suggestions on the work arrangement. For example, should this outsourcing cooperation be organized as a Custom Remote Team, a fixed contract per project, or should it be based on interactive development? The pros and cons of each type of Customer-Provider cooperation for the IT project needs to be carefully explained and the right method should be suggested.
The final step before actual development is the legal side. Sibers’ consultants will guide customers through all the aspects of making a formal contract for outsourcing their design as well as outlining how the development process works. At this stage, the legal documents and all 13 years of our outsourcing experience work together to completely protect the interests of both sides.
We do hope this seminar and developed internal source classifying the variety of tools available will help our prospective customers get the information they are interested in from Sibers’ outsourcing consultants rapidly. This will help us to achieve our number one goal, which is to complete projects for our customers successfully.
