Three Reasons Why Your Web Site Is a Smart Investment ?
Today, more than 87% of Fortune 1000 executives recently surveyed by Spiral Media say companies must have a Web site to stay in the game. Provided the Web site is done well. Here we are to help you have a nice ,attractive , efficient web site . Companies are discovering the joys of intranets and extranets. But a quarter of those surveyed say they have gotten the biggest bang for their buck from public Web sites.
Here are some of the ways public Web sites are paying off for companies:
|Why Out-source Software Development Projects ?
There are many reasons why corporations choose to out-source software development projects. To name just a few, incentives to out-source include lack of skilled IT professionals or industry knowledge, reduced costs, the ability to free up internal resources and speed of delivery .
|Why should I out-source when I can recruit ?
The following quote from Bill Gates from an April 1999 issue of Time magazine explains:
"As a business manager, you need to take a hard look at your core competencies. Revisit the areas of your company that aren't directly involved in those competencies, and consider whether Web technologies can enable you to spin off those tasks. Let another company take over the management responsibilities for that work, and use modern communication technology to work closely with the people - now partners instead of employees are doing the work. In the Web work style, employees can push the freedom the Web provides to its limits."
|Is Futura a temp service ?
Futura is not a body shop or a temp agency. We don't just provide you with a developer, we provide you with a team with industry knowledge and the competencies required to fulfill your development requirements. Our services are project based and clients only pay for the work delivered. When the project is over, there are no HR issues to deal with.
|What work is done offshore ?
In an ideal offshore software development model, analysis activities are performed on-site using a limited number of professionals. They can be either Futura Consultants or your own resources. The coding element, which requires a large pool of professionals, is out-sourced offshore.
|Is communication a problem ?
Technology has reached a stage where traditional barriers no longer apply. In recent times, communication improvements have reduced the cost involved in offshore developments drastically. It is now easy and inexpensive to exchange data, voice, and video over secure links. Availability of powerful computer systems and the Internet have made offshore developments practical and economical. If necessary, personal visits can be made either to the client site or to the Futura office during the execution of the project. Futura is located in India, less than 10 minutes from Ludhiana Airport and Railway Station. Being a major international industrial town, Ludhiana is well linked to all major International Airports at Amritsar and New Delhi.
|What language do I use to communicate with Futura ?
As an international software development company, Futura uses the English language to communicate.
|What is the level of fluency in English ?
All Futura consultants are university graduates with accreditation in the English language.
|Will Futura come to our Site ?
Where applicable, Futura consultants will perform analysis activities at your site. Account Managers will communicate with their clients regularly; however, all development is done off site. If required, as part of the project, development staff will come to your site in order to hold meetings, give training or answer questions and do the implementation .
|What level of savings can I expect from outsourcing to Futura ?
We can save companies around 50% of the costs of hiring personnel and even more if the solution was to use contractors. You wind up with all the normal outsourcing benefits of no continuing personnel cost obligation at a much lower cost .
|How Can I Monitor Performance and Productivity ?
Reporting systems are tailored to meet individual client requirements. Typically, periodical reports contain information about completed tasks, planned tasks, issues, risk management and questions for the client. For time and materials projects, additional reporting would normally include cost to date, cost to completion and time to completion. As an example, using the capabilities of the Internet, facilities can be provided to facilitate online interactive design, progress reporting and source deliveries at milestones.
|How does Futura protect confidentiality ?
To protect confidentiality and the property rights of the customer, Futura will sign a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure agreement.
|May I propose my own work standards or methodologies ?
We are flexible and will consider any constructive suggestions.
|How do I save money by having my work done in India ?
The cost of living in India is much lower than in most developed countries. We are able to do your work at a much lower cost because our costs are much lower.
|How do I send my work to you ?
Electronically via e-mail or FTP, via courier service such as DHL other major courier companies.
|Quality Assurance and Control ?
A quality assurance process is a key element of Futura methodologies. Measurement, project planning, quality reviews, and the continuous improvement of standards, procedures and tools are an integral part of our methodology.
