Our Outsourced Product Development Services structured open well supported & scalable framework strives to manage the complete product Lifecycle through an agile development approach to negate evolving development scenarios by employing industrialized processes, guidelines & tools targeted for improved performance
The outsourcing model has been practiced by major Fortune 500 companies, many of whom have gained a great deal in terms of cost reduction and technology optimization. Outsourcing is an option to be considered when faced with stiff time-to-market challenges and an even better option when vying for rapid business scalability. IT leaders also face new technology challenges heightened by rising employee cost, rising attrition rate and reduced product lifecycle on a regular basis.
Apart from these factors, IT managers & ISVs have started looking at outsourced product development, targeting "Non-core" activities, whilst freeing up their resources to focus on product innovation, marketing and customer relationship among others.
Adding all this up will put forth a formidable challenge that can only be handled by exceptional agile teams for managing your entire application landscape. But very few organizations have the bandwidth to meet all of these demands, clearly emphasizing the fact that product development & management has become too big to be handled by small IT groups restricted within certain boundaries.

- Lower development costs without compromising on quality
- An effective partner, who can architect, re-invent & value-add to your IT road map
