Managed Software Development Team Outsourcing

We in Hyper 38, a Swiss software company, know well how difficult it is to find a high quality software developers anywhere in Switzerland. The competition on the market is big and it’s not easy to find and keep the best ones. For that reason more and more companies decide to find associates abroad. As a rule, these are Eastern European or Asian countries, because they have well educated people with lower fees than an average salary for similar position in Switzerland. That is a smart strategy, but needs to be implemented carefully.

We are familiar with many examples of unsuccessful outsourcing attempts that we have seen among our colleagues or clients. On the other hand, we have conducted many successful outsourcing projects in our practice. There are many factors that can influence the final result of the attempt to engage associates from other countries. A lot of companies make mistakes by paying all of their attention to the price of potential associates. The price is surely important but it must not be a priority in any case. Here are some important elements that must be placed correctly before the price is discussed.

Important preconditions for successful outsourcing

How to manage tasks

Primarily, it is important to define how to manage new associates and share duties. If the company doesn’t have clearly established management system, it has to make one before the outsourcing starts. It’s much easier to track what’s happening when you have the whole team gathered in one office. It often happens that there are no formal principles of collaboration if the team is smaller but the things rather run their own course. This approach isn’t possible to enforce on distributed associates who work from remote locations. Anyone who tries to work this way is doomed to fail. It is necessary to use tools in this field, like our software Alefbrain.

Communication

One should get to know new associates both privately and professionally. It’s all the same when you hire people as internally employed but it is important to improve the communication additionally because it’s not face to face most often. As an integral part of business processes, new tools for communication are needed to be introduced. The best approach in terms of communication is the existence of specific manager who deals with managing of external associates. He meets all people, keeps in touch with them, exactly knows their good and bad aspects and knows well who collaborates with whom well. The position of a manager can also be external in the outsourcing team itself but it is important that the position exists.

Knowledge sharing

It’s essential to acquaint new associates with the knowledge specific for the job that is currently being worked on. Preferably the knowledge base should be established in order to acquaint each new associate fast with the current system as well as with the rules of your company. Besides that, a way of proper behaviour should be determined so that the questions are always answered and that everyone helps each other in everyday problems. A good communication and the role of a manager for external resources is also important here.

Motivation

When you hire people from remote locations you must think about motivating them positively. Although they might be on a distant location, don’t forget that the world has become a global village and that you’re always competing with other companies trying to overtake the best people. On one hand one should think about money- people should be well paid, in available range. It is also necessary to motivate them with atmosphere that values objective results above all.

Cultural barriers

Knowing the culture and the way of life of foreign associates is pretty important aspect. Sometimes it can be a huge barrier in communication and motivation. The role of a manager in this case is also pretty important. The best solution could be to have the manager from the same country as the employees or simply hire a manager at a distant location, the same one on which the other associates are.

Which approach does Hyper 38 offer?

We in Hyper 38 have long lasting experience in organizing the outsourcing associates for different industries’ clients. In time we have built specific methods and we hire exclusively associates from Serbia via our subsidiary company which we started running in Serbia. The founder of our company is the man who was born, educated and lived in Serbia for many years from where he has moved to Switzerland. In this way we overcome the cultural obstacles instead of our clients. Furthermore, Serbia has extremely well educated people and very developed IT sector where many companies from all around the world operate.

What does Managed Outsourcing mean?

That means we offer complete security to our clients when it comes to hiring people from distant locations and its success. We accomplish that by appointing a manager to each client to stand as a connection between him and his external employees. Manager organizes assignments, communicates with the client and the employees, solves the problems that appear on both sides. He deals with finding the new team members, motivation, knowledge transfer as well as with substituting people that the client seems to be dissatisfied with.

That means that Hyper 38 manages the staff’s complete administrative work. All the conditions for focusing on his work and getting maximum out-turn from each hired man are created for a client.
