Our project managers recommend following our exclusive offshore methodology throughout the software development process within our organization for assured quality. Our offshore methodology is unique, compatible and standardized. Newcomers into an ongoing project can easily catch up with this software development methodology. In short, it is beneficial to both the experienced and inexperienced staff. Projects like Document Management Application demand alternatives to the standards. The flexibility of our offshore methodology accommodates the changes our team has to adapt, in certain projects.
