The Offshore Development Center (also refered to as ODC) is now a popular business model to lower operating expenses and raise productivity levels by leveraging talent offshore. At SweetSoft, an offshore software development company from Vietnam, we excel in delivering services to a wide range of businesses using the Offshore Development Center model.
An Offshore Development Center is a remote counterpart to in-house IT personnel. Imagine it as a virtual department, a dedicated team of software developers situated beyond the doors of your business, though never out of touch. Engaging an offshore software development company allows you to better focus on your core value competencies and dramatically increase your agility while embracing the expertise of SweetSoft’s offshore development team.
The Offshore Development Center model is proven as a highly effective tool that gives you greater visibility and predictability throughout your development process.

Offshore Software Development Advantages
Using an Offshore Development Center brings many advantages, particularly in cost savings and the timeframe. ODCs in developing countries such as Vietnam maximize these benefits even further.

Skills & Knowledge at our Offshore Software Development Company
When selecting an Offshore Development Center, many companies are understandably concerned with the talent base of the individuals who will be working on their projects. This is an important factor in deciding which country to outsource to. Vietnam has a great pool of talented software developers with world-class education and familiarity with the latest and greatest technology. Through SweetSoft JSC, your company can scale the team up or down as needed to accommodate the project’s changing needs.

Shorter Timeframe
Selecting an ODC on the other side of the globe can speed up application development by facilitating a 24-hour workday, where someone is working on the project at all times. This type of work environment maximizes the use of space, equipment, and other resources, resulting in a decreased time to market. Indeed, this is the primary reason why many firms choose to globalize their development services. Having a shorter timeframe for development projects accommodates the tighter competition, shorter product lifecycles, and the increased demand for a rapid turn on investment in today’s business world.

Cost Savings working with an Offshore Development Company
How much can you expect to save with an Offshore Development Center? Depending on the project’s characteristics, cost savings could be as much as 40-80% with a well-managed ODC. These cost savings result from the cheaper cost of labor in Vietnam, without sacrificing quality or the knowledge base. By opting to work with an offshore software development company, the client has fewer capital expenditures.

In this way, they become a valuable extension of the client’s onsite team.

To better adapt to your specific software development needs and preferred engagement model, we provide 3 models of engagement for our  offshore development center services: ODC Classic, ODC Branded and ODC Trust.

This engagement model includes fully dedicated team(s), starting with at least 4 team members and 1 team leader with specific skill sets to ensure the right match with your technical and business needs and maximize the output of your offshore development investment. The Outsourcing Team works together and communicates directly with the customer to create a product that’s tightly aligned with your business needs and design requirements. The team works in close contact with you to make technology and software architecture decisions, and promptly resolve technical issues encountered during development.

Our working process focuses on Agile Development, while adapting to your existing development methodology and processes to make sure the integration of the team in your technical environment is as smooth as possible at the early phase of the project. For brand new and full cycle projects, we recommend our customer apply Scrum, as it has proven to be an effective software development methodology that brings tremendous value: high quality product, frequent deliverable, continuous improvement, alignment of skill sets and highly motivated teams.

When working with a talented, motivated Scrum team, the customer can focus on the business needs, ROI and vision, while letting the team handle the detailed design and technical implementation of the product. By shortening the feedback cycle to a 2 to 4 week sprint, Scrum is flexible enough to adjust requirements and scope, keeping both business managers and development teams on the right track in a transparent environment, while maximizing business value and efficiency.
