A growing importance is put on the individual contact between the client and the web designer or developer, as well as the project manager from the outsourcing company.
For the outsourcing client there are a number of benefits that can be enjoyed with this new trend of person-to-person outsourcing. A client is able to directly interact with their developer and see who is exactly working for them.
This provides an intimacy factor to outsourcing and allows clients to see exactly how the process is working for them.
Another trend that is becoming predominant is Sampling.
The recession has made many business enterprises more cautious about entering into outsourcing contracts with other companies. Thus one of the most popular outsourcing trends in the outsourcing sector is sample outsourcing. This is a process in which clients outsource a small portion of their IT functions in order to assess the quality of service that a service provider has to offer. This is beneficial for both business parties. Clients reduce the risk factors involved in IT outsourcing and vendors have the benefit of taking the time to display their best services in order to gain more business.
You can take advantage of these trends in order to come up with a successful IT model. At Flat Rock we are putting great emphasis on the personalized service we provide for our clients and assign a dedicated development team to each company for the duration of the IT project. We are always keen to prove ourselves by undertaking sample projects for our first time clients and pride ourselves on having repeat business from each company that has used the sample approach first.
