Why SMEs still do not have the offshore reflex for the development of their IT projects?
Originally, during the boom of the computer offshore in France in the 2000s, major groups have started to open development centers (especially in India) of several tens, or even hundreds of developers. The return on investment was only valid for very large projects because the preparation and supervision phases required for the success of these offshore IT projects were an unacceptable extra cost for small projects.
The only offshore solutions for SMEs were local small businesses with all the known problems of quality and sustainability of companies. Many SMEs have been disappointed by these cheap but poorly made services. A bad image emerges that still persists today in all minds.
Why is it now available with the Bocasay offer?
Our customers are looking for the offshore price in order to save money (see France – Madagascar price comparison ), but this price must be accompanied by reasonable lead times and impeccable quality, it could be obtained by subcontracting with an ESN in France.
Bocasay , who is only developing, perfectly master the methods, processes and tools to manage the teams of developers and physical distance. We therefore offer our customers a complete production solution that goes beyond the technical expertise of our developers. We generally use agile method to manage short and efficient cycles with daily and weekly meetings, associated with good ticketing, code versioning and chat tools. Associated with a good infrastructure, your offshore development team works as if it were present in the office next to yours.
This IT service platform is offered in a French legal framework (our clients contract with the headquarters of Bocasay in Paris) while benefiting from low prices offshore.
For what types of IT projects, can an SME need the Bocasay offer?
An SME can use an offshore provider for any type of project (website, e-commerce, web application / software engineering , etc.), provided that the organization is square. It is necessary to be able to specify things so that all of the project’s stakeholders, not necessarily physically in the same place, can understand and produce the IT project expected by the client. If necessary, we can put in the team a functional project manager who will take care of the functional specifications and the respect of the agile methodology for the whole project.
Projects can thus start from 20 men days (JH) and exceed several hundred JH.
Offshore subcontracting is today a strategic development axis for SMEs.
More than half of Bocasay’s clients are SMEs with between 15 and 150 employees. The needs of our customers are simple. With the explosion of digital and the scarcity of profiles of developers in France, they are looking for technical production capacity for their internal and external projects.
Bocasay supports SMEs and ETIs in setting up dedicated offshore teams to strengthen the teams already in place in France, integrating the entire value chain necessary for quality development, all for a very low financial cost.
