Outsourcing

Outsourcing to Romania - we have reliable talent

Outsourcing is a process. As with any new process, there is a learning curve. Some clients feel comfortable outsourcing from the first project, while others find it more difficult to delegate tasks to people outside of their business. The reason for this is that successful outsourcing takes commitment.

Our approach to outsourcing is mature, oriented towards long-term cooperation and methodical by splitting the process into measurable steps. Neither you nor we will risk facing unexpected and unwanted expenses and delays. We have an organized, predictable system that makes your onboarding pretty smooth.

How ready are you to outsource?

Ask yourself if you have a clear grasp about the expectations you have from your outsourcing partner?

Have you made an inventory of your expectations?  Are your expectations realistic? How about achievable?

Have you clarified exactly how many people and how much time you can allow on your side to manage the relation?

What are the cultural ramifications? How would an outsourced team fit into your company culture?

NDA agreement

We sign a non-disclosure agreement each time we start working with a new partner. This ensures that the sensitive data is kept confidential throughout the project lifecycle and beyond. We see this as a reasonable and necessary measure that creates the condition of trust in our relationships. The NDA is signed by us as a company and, if case, by the team members who have access to your code/technology. If desired, you can make changes and adapt the NDA agreement to meet your precise requirements.

Intellectual rights

The ownership of the intellectual property assets created by our software teams, the source code, as well as copyrights and all the data related to the project, belongs to the client. The contract template we provide includes clauses addressing the protection of your intellectual property rights. Even more, you can feel free to review the template with your legal department and adapt it if needed.

You keep control

We have a long experience in developing software products and implementing highly specialized software under the outsourced model. Hence we know that keeping control over the project and communication is important. You will be able to get in touch at any time during the working hours with the person or the team members working at your project.

Support & maintenance

Every software we develop receives a 6-months warranty. Within this time range we will clear any possible functional or technical software faults that are related to our own code for no costs. Beyond the warranty, we offer flexible long term maintenance options, covering software modification and evolution. Our support services also address applications that are not developed by our company.

Team setup

Even with the best intentions, an IT outsourcing project is at risk if not organized at the start. This stands for setting clear expectations and the steps to come. We provide free of charge initial strategy sessions. The purpose is to define team members' roles, split the project into stages, outline the sprints in detail and set up the communication rules and KPIs.

Project tracking

From instant messaging to video conferencing tools - the best alternative to face-to-face meetings. Nowadays there are plenty of options to communicate as the project goes on. You will probably feel comfortable communicating with our people on a personal level. We will also use a project management tool to keep track of everything project-related or, if you prefer, we can use yours.

Live meetings

Our geographic proximity enables frequent face-to-face contact. Cluj-Napoca is just one hour flight distance from Germany and two hours flight distance from France or the Netherlands, thus allowing for accessible work visits. Find out your flight distance to us.

Cooperation models

Dedicated team

A dedicated team is the most widely used software outsourcing option. We can take over the entire project responsibility and manage all aspects related to producing the required result. The management of the project can be either on our side or on your side. Your project manager will be in touch with the development team either to just review the status or to fully manage all aspects of the project, as you wish.

Extended team

An extended team model allows you to access some of our engineers based on the additional skills that you need. As a result your project manager remains in charge of the process, while the project is developed jointly by your in-house unit and our developers working from abroad. You can scale up or down while remaining fully in charge of all aspects of the development process.

Outsourcing to Romania

For decades already, Romania is a flourishing technology hub and popular IT outsourcing destination. The competitive advantages include:

• a large number of skilled tech graduates with good language skills,
• mastering not only English but also German or French,
• the fairly low costs, 
• and the geographical proximity.

In 2014, the Employer’s Association of the Software and Services Industry in Romania (ANIS) estimated that Romania’s software industry employed approximately 65,000 persons. In 2018 the number of IT professionals has grown to over 95,000.

The two offices of our company are located in Transylvania, a historical region surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains (the land of Dracula), in the cities of Cluj-Napoca and Satu Mare.

Cluj-Napoca is pretty much of a smart city.  People enjoy free wi-fi in the city center and there is an app that monitors and helps with car parking. Furthermore there are several charging pods where electric cars can be charged and citizens can pay their taxes online. Also, there are numerous electric buses. The council has set up a platform where residents can propose and vote on local projects, such as planting a tree at every 3 parking spaces, vertical gardens, or underground units for intelligent recycling. The city has also become a popular travel destination, with two international music festivals (Electric Castle and Untold) and an international film festival taking place every summer.

Satu Mare is an industrial, business, academic, and cultural center, at just 20-minute drive away from the Hungarian border.  The town has had an eventful history that has seen it being destroyed and rebuilt many times. Therefore, the old section of the town has some of the most attractive heritage buildings. The city also has an international airport.
