It is impossible to avoid the fact that the digital world permeates through everything, and is integral to business life nowadays.
Most businesses will need to run a software development project at one time or another. Many small and medium sized businesses need help with not only their software development but also integrating software products into their operations. This process can be a frightening proposition for business managers, introducing risk, uncertainty and financial and time costs. Forbytes’ Contract Project Team service reduces the risks, and reduces the fear and uncertainty, by providing knowledge and manpower on a contract basis to implement software projects in a timely way at a reasonable cost.
“First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end."
Why do so many software projects fail, or miss their targets, in companies that are led by experienced and successful business people and teams?
It’s all about capacity. Very few currently successful leaders have the spare capacity to manage short-term projects, even if they are business critical. Very few currently successful teams have the capacity to add on projects to their workloads unless there is extremely long-range planning. The day-to-day running of the business is absolutely the first priority; delivering on targets to have the possibility to invest in improvements and future growth. How then does a company introduce a new software platform or upgrade existing platforms, without employing additional internal staff members for example? Especially when those staff members may not actually be needed once the project is implemented?
The answer is to employ a contract project team, boosting your company’s capacity and ensuring you get absolute specialists to deliver your critical project.
Delivering successful projects takes experience, empathy, respect, knowledge and discipline. Forbytes works closely with you to put together a disciplined, highly trained, experienced and motivated team to deliver projects that meet your business needs. This team will be an extension of your business – your internal team, just outsourced. You will have full control of what is happening and will have as much information as you need to make well-informed choices and decisions. The day-to-day management of the project and the people involved will be taken care of. You can focus on delivering your business targets.
Bridging the gap
There is often a gap between what a business currently uses for technology and the future business opportunity. The Forbytes team members stay up-to-date with knowledge from across different industries so they can offer you ideas and inspiration that may be utilized in and be tailored for your business. You capitalize on development experience that has been gathered over many years and across businesses without having to spend resources on sending your own team members to conferences, seminars and interest group gatherings. Your business is unique and you need unique software solutions. It is our understanding of your business needs that helps generate a critical asset that does exactly what you want it to do.
Different stages of your project may require different skill sets too. The Forbytes teams are built to allow people with different skill sets to move in and out of the project as required. You gain flexibility that an internal team often does not have. This saves additional costs, and allows you to budget efficiently. Expenditure loads can be estimated well in advance, and forward planning results in far fewer unexpected outlays, especially with our experienced project managers keeping an eye on all things related to your project.
