What is it?
Softjourn's Offshoring Assessment answers the following questions:
- How realistic is Offshoring any of what we do?
- Can we take advantage of it?
- How difficult would it be to offshore some of the work?
- How much would need to be done in order to prepare for offshore?
- How could we get started?
- Who could work as an interface person?
- What would a new split of responsibilities between offshore and onshore look like?
Value to you:
Knowledge: Could your firm take advantage of offshore or not, and if so, what is the process that it will take to get there?
Time savings and cash savings: The cost to your firm, if you conduct internally a Global Sourcing Assessment, consists of two parts; Part one is conducting the assessment itself, Part two is researching and visiting offshore locations.
Your final Offshoring Assessment report will be ready within 1 week of completing the last set of interviews. The report will first be sent to you for your review, and then an official review with Softjourn can be scheduled by phone or in person, per your convenience.
- Is Offshoring possible/Not possible?
- Possible "structure" of an offshore team and in-house support.
- Other alternatives besides offshore to meet the business objectives.
- What type of work would need to be done so your company can get started Offshoring.
- Of your existing tools.
- Of your existing development procedures.
- Of existing issue areas.
What the Global Sourcing Assessment is not:
Your Global Sourcing Assessment report will not include a proposal/cost for doing any type of work offshore. Only during the assessment can it be determined if it makes sense to offshore anything or nothing at all. If, after a review of the assessment, it is determined that you wish to actually pursue an offshore pilot project, then we will review with you the steps that need to be taken in order to prepare your company for offshore.
