Our Approach at SymmFlow

 

Understanding Software Outsourcing benefits and challenges


When done right, software outsourcing offers significant advantages. It opens access to a global talent pool, reduces costs, and enables you to concentrate on core business areas—growth and profitability.


However, software outsourcing isn’t without its challenges. Without proper management,  you may encounter software outsourcing risks factors such as hidden costs, unclear goals, time zone hassles, goals not matching up, unmotivated workers, losing control, and misunderstandings due to culture and communication.


How can software outsourcing be leveraged to its fullest, with minimized risk?

 
Get the Best of both worlds


Effective communication is key in outsourcing.  Would it make a difference if you had a manager who understands the culture of both problem domain country e.g. UK, USA etc and solution domain country e.g. Pakistan, India, Bangladesh?  Now add to this, that the manager understands and is aligned with your company goals.


We believe success is achieved when the outsourced team understands business context as well as technical. The team is focused and aligned with the company’s overarching business goals. In this way, every effort directly contributes to the company’s business objectives. This in essence is our approach. To achieve a symmetrical flow in the outsourcing chain towards your goals. This ensures that every team member, regardless of location, works in harmony towards the client’s goals, with clear communication and a shared understanding of objectives.

This ensures we are fully engaged and committed to delivering the highest quality of work.
