Nearsurance: Find out What Strypes’ Unique Outsourcing Model Can do for Your Business

Posted by Strypes on Apr 15, 2019 11:05:57 AM

Outsourcing is important to businesses, especially when there is a need to grow, reduce costs, and solve issues that in-house teams don’t have the capacity to handle. But sometimes it can bring challenges like cultural and time-zone differences that can cause miscommunication and delays, especially when companies chose the offshoring model.

Dealing with the inefficiencies of outsourcing was a challenge that we at Strypes took and transformed into our model called Nearsurance. It combines the benefits of nearshoring with easy communication and quality assurance by being present at the client’s location.

Choosing Software Development as a Service? Yes, please.

Posted by Strypes on Mar 29, 2019 2:43:19 PM

The lack of resources within your IT department shouldn’t stall your growth and hiring new professionals doesn’t always make good business sense. It’s not only about saving costs. Recruiting, hiring, and training employees is incredibly time-consuming. And so is releasing people, if the work doesn’t go as planned.

Software Development as a Service gives access to a talent pool of on-demand teams that can take care of the full cycle of a product. These teams are an extended part of the company and a trusted thought partner. They help the client where there isn’t enough capacity or knowledge, without the need for additional training or guidance.

The service of the new millenium

Posted by Strypes on Oct 10, 2018 11:48:53 AM

Remote IT support originated as a service in the beginning of this century. It was the natural consequence of all events at the end of the 90s that marked a new age for business and economy - the digital, borderless age. In mid-90s, the Internet was officially commercialized and shortly after, the VPN and the broadband connection were born. By the early 2000s, broadband was largely adopted, which made remote access to computers and servers possible.

A well-known industry pioneer - VMware, created a set of software tools for remote IT operations. Microsoft followed closely after with its own virtualization product. And finally, Amazon AWS was presented, setting a stone for the new "cloud" era. These three companies are the foundation of the IT outsourcing industry, because they provided the means to make it possible.

Nearshoring + Quality Assurance = Nearsurance. But what is that?

Posted by Strypes on Oct 7, 2018 9:13:12 PM

In a digital and connected world it no longer matters where you do business from - what's important is results. The Internet era allowed companies to outsource tasks, projects and even full departments to partners abroad.

Outsourcing means you can extend your team beyond borders, while optimizing costs and saving time otherwise spent on recruitment and training. This kind of agility allowed businesses to create new products and push them to market faster, without worrying as much about human resource availability. Interestingly, only blue collar jobs were outsourced until the DotCom revolution happened. Nowadays, thanks to internet connectivity and convenient business management software, companies can also delegate white collar work.

Even though it's technically possible to work with partners across the globe, there are some downsides to outsourcing in countries that are too far away from the client headquarters. The main deterring factors are big time gaps, expensive flights and cultural differences. More and more businesses prefer nearshoring, or, in other words, working with service providers that are either in neighboring countries or at least within a reasonable time zone range.

At Strypes Bulgaria, we have been a nearshore service partner for enterprise-scale clients as well as SMEs for over 10 years. During that time we developed our own service delivery framework, called nearsurance.

Stakeholder management: What you should know

Posted by Strypes on Aug 31, 2018 8:38:22 AM

A project team is like a chronograph watch. If anything stops working, the whole mechanism fails. That applies even for the well-hidden miniscule particles! As the project manager, your biggest challenge is to monitor this delicate system and identify the possible outage before it happens. Once it does, you're the captain who's expected to wind up the watch, so it can get back on track and show the accurate time.
