What are the key benefits that you offer?
The primary benefits are superior software development, cost and simplicity.
Hiring an offshore company is simply far cheaper than doing the work in the West. The quality is the same but the cost of living is significantly reduced so our charges can be kept down. Instead of hiring an employee and all the costs involved (tax, hetitleh care, national insurance, office, hardware, software etc) the relationship is with the offshore development company. We eliminate all these elements.
Why should I use developers based in India?
Most of the major companies in the Fortune 500 have offshore development done in India. India has emerged as global leader in offshore software development because of diverse pool of educated young software professionals coming out every year from it's elite universities. These developers are innovative and are ready to work hard to make the best use of what they have learned. The outcome of this talent after 2 years is a young, intelligent, innovative, experienced and hard working software developer available to develop the best software.
English is major spoken language amongst most of educated Indians, so while you will have a software in your local language, you will also have a copy of the software which is in English for the whole world.
Which is the most important factor that leads to the successful development of your software overseas?
Communication is the the life line of any business. In our business we use E-mail, MSN Messenger, video conferencing and telephone as a means of communication. The advanced Internet technology has made it possible for us to communicate with anyone, anywhere and at any time. Through the E-Mail it is possible for the client to define his requirements, it gives a clear presentation and statement of what needs to be done. It also becomes possible to keep a track record of the previous discussions and a review can be done of what had been discussed and needs to be fixed. MSN Messenger makes it possible to have one to one communication as well as group discussions between different people who are in different places all over the world. It is fast and cost-effective.
What is the current market size worldwide and what percentage of it is contributed by India?

India currently exports $6 billion or two per cent worth of IT services. It is expected that by the year 2005, India will increase its IT services export market share to four per cent.
What are India's prospects?
Infotech is important to all businesses. India has been grabbing major chunks of the fast growing infotech outsourcing because of the strength and size of its IT workforce, high quality of work performed, tax incentives to IT private industry, highly educated IT workforce with 70,000 new graduates a year and the largest English-speaking workforce outside US. This is just the beginning; we have not even scratched the surface. India's contribution to the global IT services market and its own economy is going to be very big in the next 10 years.
