Why outsource?

It sure is tempting for companies to think that they can complete software development projects themselves. After all, computers are fairly cheap, development tools aren't that expensive, and how hard could it really be?

Companies quickly find that development can be time consuming, expensive and frustrating. Pointe can help.

What can clients gain?

Experience

All day, every day we develop software. Like anything that people do all the time, we have gotten better at it through the years. We make mistakes and learn from them. We have spent years reading books and articles, improving analysis/coding/scheduling/management/testing/design techniques, practicing on project after project.

Specialized Expertise

Technology is changing all the time. It can be an overwhelming task to keep up with developments. It can take years to gain the experience necessary for projects to succeed.

Reduced Costs

Creating and maintaining development and testing environments can be expensive. With many simultaneous project, Pointe is able to spread fixed and overhead costs across many projects and maintain a high quality development and testing environment.

Predictable, Non Hidden Expenses

Clients can spend exactly what they would like on development and can know the exact cost of development. Expenses are not hidden in overhead, benefits, and infrastructure.

Scalable Staffing

Clients can immediately have projects staffed with multiple qualified people. Once the project is completed, the projects staff can be reduced to none or fractional people for on-going maintenance.

Insurance

At Pointe, there are always several staff familiar with a clients project. If your internal staff members leave, does their knowledge and expertise leave with them? Pointe can offer multiple project team members with backup who can give clients someone to turn to-- even with sick leave, vacation, etc.
