About Us

 Our Value to you 

We are a company that is here to do the "heavy lifting" for any client that is interested in creating or implementing strategies for using Offshoring / Global Resourcing to make their own business more agile and competitive 

Our background 

Over the last 20 years we have had a deep history in offshore services, both on the supply side and on the user side.

  • As suppliers, we have found skilled people and set them up to work efficiently in remote locations, collaborating across multiple regions.

  • As users, running our own product development, support and infrastructure support teams, we have experimented with every type of offshoring method - setting up & running our own remote organisations, as well as selecting & using partners to create these teams for us. 

Through this experience we have gained

  • A deep knowledge of what works and what doesn't and can apply this for our clients

  • A strong belief that taking advantage of cost arbitrage and a large pool of skilled resources in different regions is an essential strategy for modern companies - both large and small

  • The ability to step into our customers' CxO shoes and provide insight into strategic need and tactics for Global Sourcing.

 

Our Philosophy 

Global Resourcing "works” - For small companies as well as large companies

Remote working isn’t “rocket science” to get right - But it does require care & diligence to set up and maintain for success

Outsourcing may not be the answer for core business activities - Must retain control and culture, but still need to optimise via Global Resourcing

“In-sourcing at the right global location” is the new winning mantra

Near-shoring (e.g. E. Europe) and Far-shoring (e.g. India) are both viable now & will be for some time to come - Which is best depends on specific needs

Expert knowledge adds value & reduces risk - And ultimately saves time and money
