Expansion of International Software Capacities

Easy and Efficient

This scenario will sound familiar. When there is an oversupply of foreign providers, the buying process becomes increasingly complex, difficulties in implementation emerge and it ultimately ends up being more expensive than expected.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Our clients decide which services are rendered at which of our 12 international locations. To this end, ServiceFactum prepares a decision paper that takes into account regional strengths, productivity, quality levels, operational risks, staff availability and cultural issues. Our long-time experience allows us to prevent pitfalls or blunders when it comes to staffing and setting up the collaboration. Afterwards, we make sure schedules are adhered to and the intended goals are met.

Project Transfer

Preventing Bottlenecks

Whether you opt for a fixed-price contract or a time and materials contract, with the help of our experienced resources we will implement your functional specification with the stipulated quality and within the timeframe and budget agreed upon.

ServiceFactum acts as general contractor and single point of contact. After planning together, the project team is selected and assembled. Project coordination is managed entirely by ServiceFactum. We employ both agile and iterative models depending on the needs and dynamics.

 

High availability and scalability allows for shortened lead times and project completion.

With our innovative engagement model, we can carry out projects starting with a minimum of 6 person-months.

Team Expansion

Cost-Effectiveness and Improvement of IT Skills

For the purpose of expanding your own software development capacity in a cost-transparent, flexible and scalable manner, ServiceFactum offers to set up and successfully establish a dedicated team of developers at TOP locations selected and certified in accordance with the Bestshoring principle.

Together with you, we determine which specific tasks can be outsourced and present various solutions at different locations for comparison.

Based on your specific needs, the best team is validated and selected. ServiceFactum is your German contracting partner and general contractor.

Within the scope of the local Service Management, we enable Best Practice solutions and act as your contact for service quality, escalation and change management. You can focus on the functional and technical steering of your extended team.

Build - Operate - Transfer (BOT)

Outsourcing of initial Risks

The Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Model comprises 3 Phases:

1. Build
To begin with, a full-service solution to set up a dedicated BestShore Unit (BU) is built. Premises and infrastructure at the BestShore location are allocated, your nearshore team is established, goals are aligned and the knowledge transfer is established.

2. Operate
In this phase, ServiceFactum handles all management and administrative services for your BestShore Unit: office space and infrastructure, IT, HR services (including hiring, payroll and basic training), financial administration, safety and legal issues, etc.
ServiceFactum also manages the cross-national collaboration. However, the client does work closely and directly with the international development team on technical issues and can therefore focus management time on his core business instead of operational issues.

3. Transfer
The contract stipulates that the client may transfer the BU into their own integrated unit after a predefined period of time.
ServiceFactum, together with our local BestShore Center, supports the client with respect to setting up a new foreign subsidiary and transfers assets, staff and operations.

The BOT model offers complete outsourcing of initial costs and risks for a successful launch, as well as other advantages:
• Fast scalability of operations
• Cost optimization for setting up the infrastructure
• Fast startup of the BUs (renting office space, statutory regulations, cultural differences, setting up the infrastructure etc.)
