In 2005, Keene Systems setup shop in India to provide a level of scalability and pricing that could not be achieved with only the US staff. Our software team in India has received A+ scores on independent audits and high accolades in Microsoft India's Security Shootouts.
Our hybrid US/India team approach has enabled us to deliver quality software solutions for a fraction of the cost. Our team in India employs the same open collaborative spirit that we have in our local office and this transparency has resulted in excellent communication, strong project management and enhanced accountability. That’s important because poor communication is the number one reason for outsource software project failure.
Our clients enjoy the cost-savings and rapid development associated with a scalable off-shore team while still having the immediate contact & security of doing business with an American firm. We hold regular meetings with our clients via GotoMeeting and Skype to stay on top of their .NET and SQL server Developer project needs throughout the software development lifecycle.
You will be in direct contact with the actual developer or team lead who is working on your project as well as a project manager here in the US. All of our developers have good English language skills and some have actually lived here in the United States. We post all of our time sheets and project notes in our online time tracking system for your review. This method of open collaboration and complete accountability has resulted in strong client and partner relationships.
One of our largest multi-year projects was for National Geographic and we performed almost all of the work with our India team. When National Geographic School Publishing merged with Hampton Brown School Publishing, they chose Keene Systems as the company to develop their new website. The website manages over 16,000 learning products for grades k through 12 and provides tools for a sales force scattered all over the United States.
One of the greatest benefits of having a team abroad is the time difference, which we use to our advantage. For example, a client may put in a request in the evening here in the United States and if the request is not too large, have the software modification delivered first thing in the morning. Our clients love this!
Call us today. We want to personally discuss with you how our hybrid India-US team approach can be a cost effective way of delivering quality software solutions that meet your needs.
