How to choose the right IT service provider
3 tips for successful IT partnerships
"My first project with external software developers was a flop," says our CEO and founder Lionel Born. He lost 3,000 euros, missed deadlines and gave away valuable time.
What went wrong back then and what he learned from it, he tells in this video.
Lionel's 3 tips from practice
Many companies want to take advantage of offshore software development. But problems often arise during the collaboration.
This is how our CEO and founder Lionel Born felt many years ago in his software projects.
His first contact with external software developers disappointed him. These three things are crucial for him to find the right IT service provider:
1. Values: Find a partner that fits you
It is crucial that you share the same values. A sympathetic contact person and similar values create the basis for a successful collaboration and prevent misunderstandings and conflicts.
2. Language: Make sure you understand each other
Smooth communication is the be-all and end-all for any project. English may be a common language, but dialects and unclear pronunciation make precise communication difficult.
Make sure the offshore IT experts speak good English before the project starts! Video interviews or an intensive video call to get to know them can help.
3. Culture: Find a partner who bridges the cultural gap
In Germany, we value precision, quality and proactivity. This is not the case in all cultures. When you work directly with IT service providers from abroad, this can become a problem.
Find a partner who understands your requirements and ensures that communication and culture do not pose a hurdle.
Those who follow these three tips will get off to a successful start with their offshore IT service provider.
