A detailed project scope can be the difference between a successful software development project and a disaster. Let us explain what a project scope should look like. It should be detailed and cover as many aspects of the project as possible so that all parties involved are clear about the work being undertaken. It should document previous discussions, and explain what work is being done that is included in the scope as well as what future work may be needed that would fall outside the scope.

When outsourcing to offshore companies, timezones are one of the most understated complications. Knowing what the timezone difference is and understanding the impacts it can have on your project are two separate issues. Here at Venuiti, we enlist a global team to ensure the best work possible for our clients. We know first-hand how timezones can affect a project. The most conflicting issue is that different time zones can cause delays - a message you send Monday afternoon might not be opened until Tuesday morning. Not only that, but you may be starting your working day as the outsourcing company is finishing theirs. India, for example, has a 9.5 hour time difference to New York, which means if you have an urgent query that needs to be answered, you could be waiting a full working day to get a response. The answer? Nearshore outsourcing.
