Big Bear Software is your Near-Sourcing partner for third-party software development.
Big Bear Software is your near-sourcing partner for third-party software development. What is Near-Sourcing? Everyone has heard of out-sourcing projects, but what in the world is near-sourcing? Near-sourcing is a better way of working with a third party software developer. Selecting a close-to-home partner offers tremendous benefits over hiring a software developer located overseas. Near-sourcing marries cultural understanding with expertise to provide you a partner who will get the job done timely, and with whom you'll have no trouble communicating. Near-sourcing is not a replacement for internal jobs, rather it augments your existing staff. How? By taking work load off of them that they: - Don't have the time to complete because of existing projects, or - Don't yet have the skill set for (but you need to get the project rolling) Near-sourcing is less-risky than finding an overseas provider. You are a short plane trip away, and Skype or conference calls can be held during both parties' regular business hours, when everyone is in optimum work-mode. In-person meetings can be scheduled within 24 hours. Proximity and cultural similarities will give you comfort in communication with the third party team, as everyone will have a common understanding to terminology and the environment in which your end users will be incorporating the product.
