Hybrid Onshore – Offshore Teams

offshore resources staff the majority of the team over time.
Many organizations have tried using offshore teams to do their development work – the cost benefits are compelling. However, these efforts have frequently been beset with problems of low quality, lack of consistency and late delivery. Axispoint has solved this problem by developing an approach that allows us to build cohesive and integrated teams that combine onshore and offshore resources.
Axispoint NYC-Based Staff Fills Key Team Roles
Local Axispoint staff plays key leadership roles in the hybrid teams. Specifically the scrum master, development lead, architect and business analyst are typically based in Axispoint’s NYC office.
Having local staff in these roles helps maintain clear and open channels of communication with clients and clear accountability within the team. Our local resources meet in-person on a regular basis to ensure there is no degradation of vision, message or direction.
Offshore Resources Form the Majority of the Team Over Time
Taking advantage of lower offshore rates means that the costs of the hybrid team are a fraction of the cost of a solely locally-based resources.
In addition, Axispoint benefits from a much wider talent pool to find the best fit for a specific project requirement. The Axispoint local staff continue to fill key team roles, and offshore resources staff the majority of the team over time. The ratio of resources changes as the team scales and the project matures, while the resources mix varies from project to project based on several factors.
