What to look out for before hiring an ODC company and how to set up an ODC?

Hachinet has shown you the pros and cons and the ODC's brief introduction and the difference between outsourcing and offshore in the previous article. Today, Hachinet will show you what to look out for before hiring an ODC company and how to establish it.

Three things to note before hiring an ODC company

Here are the essential checklists to help you determine the ODC’s quality.

Quality and skills

From scratch, the most important thing is to comprehend which country can provide the best services without financial wasting.

Besides India and China, Vietnam is a destination attracting the attention of many foreign businesses. Vietnam has a large contingent of skilful software developers with a solid IT foundation and is always up to date with all the latest technologies.

Portfolio

How do we know which country is suitable for cooperation? Firstly, see the project portfolio they used to perform. Also, you can ask or interview their customers to have the most objective and honest information.

We recommend working with companies specialising in ODC services with many years of experience. Those companies are more familiar with using the right technologies for ODC projects, and they keep up with the most advanced trends in the tech world.

More importantly, companies with a long history can be more trustworthy when keeping projects and information safe and confidential.

Communication

It is less of a burden to work with an ODC company in a nation where communication is not difficult. Those companies that want to minimise the labour costs can find employees from countries such as the Philippines, India and Vietnam, where they have good English proficiency, making job exchanges easier.
