Offshore Development

�A viable option in today�s economic reality�

Adept's offshore services provide companies with significant opportunities to save time and costs on a wealth of technology related projects. For starters, by using our offshore capabilities you don't need to incur the costly capital expense of developing or expanding your own facilities

Outsourcing software development also frees up in-house resources for critical management, design, and development tasks. Your in-house professionals would maintain their day-to-day IT supervisory responsibilities, while Adept's outsourced resources could provide you with:

  • Significant cost savings
  • Frequently scarce technical skills are available when you need them
  • Additional resources supplied as required to meet spikes in workload
  • A virtual 24-hour workday between our offshore and U.S. operations
  • The reliability of contractually agreed upon objectives

By using Adept�s offshore services, you can realize the benefits of our technology development, support, and maintenance at enormous cost savings. At the same time, we will provide you with the rigid quality control and extensive project management expertise of our U.S. division. Our offshore services are especially suited for customers who experience constraints with budgets.

Adept's off-shore support staff can execute services such as developing and maintaining software systems as well as providing conversion services, product support, and enhancement services at a fraction of the cost of getting them done locally.
