Strategic Sourcing

Strategic Sourcing

Traditionally off-shoring started as cost cutting tool for organizations and in last 15- 20 years companies started off-shoring everything possible. Important projects involving communications, critical business processes were off-shored. However, many project witnessed complete or part failure.

The objective of off-shoring was peer pressure and fear of losing in the competition. It was therefore, seen as a bulk activity instead of a global strategy for growth and cost cutting.

Our team at Sagacity Software understands time zone differences, communication problems, resources issues and other challenges which customers have to face in off-shoring jobs. We understand and value the opinion regarding off-shoring to India. We also understand customers’ problems and strongly believe that off-shoring should not be planned during inception phase of any project, product, business direction or organization.
