Insyst follows Smart Sourcing methodology for Software Development

What is Smart Sourcing?
Smart sourcing is a concept of Outsourcing where a client keeps all the core competencies in house and out sources the non core functions to its trusted partner.

To determine which processes to smart-source, ask:
  • How vital is each process of your business to your unique strategic differentiation?
  • How competitive and innovative is your organization in each business area?
  • How cost-effective are your activities in each business area, and how much customer value do these processes add?
From initially being just a cost-cutting concept, IT smart sourcing has gradually and steadily moved ahead to establish itself as a must-have successful business model by rendering not only cost-effective but also sophisticated and highly efficient quality services and solutions. Smart-sourcing, on the other hand, does add value—by letting you focus on core areas while your partners take responsibility for innovation and cost control in noncore operations.

The major concern with smart sourcing is that to identify which types of innovation best represent your core competencies—that is, separate the core innovative differentiators of the business from the merely operational processes. Insyst's versatile and flexible engagement models not only provide its clients liberty to choose the appropriate engagement model, as per requirement, but also help in assessing core and non-core functionalities.

Insyst offers forward-looking IT smart sourcing engagement models to our clients that go over and beyond tactical outsourcing. These models offer the opportunity to accelerate smart sourcing higher along the collaborative value chain.

Service Offerings

Broadly there are three engagement models that move from a low involvement, low control mode to a very high involvement, very high control mode. These are:

Full Time Equivalent (FTE)
In this model we can provide you with a team of full time equivalent employees for your specific requirements on setting up an offshore development center. You can choose to hire a single professional and then scale up to a full-fledged development center.

Fixed Price
This model allows the clients to get a predictable budget for your project and considerably low perceived risk Fixed Price Model suits best for clients who wants fixed price for fixed scoped project. Typically asked for by clients with less project requirement clarity and offered by us only when we have high clarity on the requirement

Time & Material (T&M)
With the time and material engagement model, your costs and schedule will vary depending on your specific requirements and on the complexity of your project. This gives you maximum flexibility and also allows you to make substantial revisions to your project even as it is being developed.
