Offshore Development Center
What is offshore development centre (ODC)?
An offshore development centre offers the benefits of effectively extending legs and arms for your organization without hiring talent. It also provides access to expert resources at reasonable prices, without having to hire them and incurring recruitment costs.
Organizations opt for offshore development centers for developing, testing and deploying software solutions and applications. An ODC acts as a remote counterpart to your in-house IT personnel.
Offshore development centre comes as an advantage in business situations where the task at hand is too small to be outsourced and non cost effective for in-house development. Not only does an offshore development centre help in this situation, it facilitates ready availability of resources as per your expectations at your disposal. It also offers the capability to wrap up all sundry tasks in a go.

How does an offshore development center function?
With an offshore development center, business effectively gets ownership of a full time, fully dedicated team sitting at the provider’s office. It is like a virtual team based out of another country, managed by a project manager working under your guidelines. As the owner, you can provide instructions on how the team is managed and what tasks the team needs to accomplish. The teams under their project manager provide regular feedback and task reports to the business.
This helps the business to control costs and rationalize scale of operations with short term contracts and a consolidated monthly fee.
