Finding a reliable IT outsourcing vendor for a software project is hard, but finding one for a medium or large project, where hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake, is way much harder.
Although the global IT outsourcing industry doesn’t have a shortage of service providers, it does have a shortage of ones that have the labor capacity and financial capability to handle grand-scale projects.
So, what is the simplest solution to dodge the risk of losing a fortune to a failed IT project? You just need to select a vendor that has a proven track record of successfully delivered projects of this scale.
To do so, you need to know what qualities a big competent IT outsourcing vendor typically has. Here are the common traits among vendors of this scale and what those traits mean:
- They have hundreds to thousands of engineers (Ability to handle labor-intensive projects).
- They have universally recognized certificates (Proof of their capability).
- They have well-known clients in their track records (Proof of their capability).
- They can provide a wide variety of technical skillsets (Ability to handle complicated projects).
- They have transparent business processes (Trust is taken seriously).
- They don’t make random promises to get contracts, but are clear and upfront about what they can deliver (Breach of contract and customer’s interests are taken seriously).
- They welcome clients’ tests on their technical abilities (Talent isn’t afraid of tests).
Once you have found a vendor that can show these qualities, you can move forward with them and discuss your software requirements. Pay attention to how thorough and accurate their technical consultancy is, because that will show you whether or not you can rely on this vendor.
If you are in the middle of your search for a suitable IT outsourcing vendor, we, CMC Global, are confident that we can be a strong option on your list. Let me tell you why.
8 Reasons Why You Can Rely On CMC Global For Your Next Software Project
1. CMC Global is the second largest IT outsourcing service provider in Vietnam:
CMC Global is a division of CMC Corporation, an Vietnamese high-tech conglomerate founded in 1993 with the current workforce of more than 3,500 employees. CMC Corporation covers various industries such as cyber security, telecom, AI research and development.
CMC Global, the IT outsourcing service division of CMC Corporation, was founded in 2017, and now has over 1,500 employees in 6 offices around the world. This size of skilled personnel enables us to be ready for software projects of medium and large scales.
Have we delivered any before? Yes, we have.
2. CMC Global has the capabilities to handle large-scale projects:
Being a strategic IT outsourcing partner of Samsung, CMC Global has successfully delivered many of its software projects; some required up to 500 engineers. Apart from Samsung, we have been able to meet demanding requirements from other difficult clients such as IBM, OneConnect, Honda, and Panasonic; many of these Fortune 500 customers have become our long-term partners (please get in touch with our Sales team for case studies from these projects).
Having had our capabilities and skills honed in serving these tough clients, CMC Global is now confident and comfortable at handling projects of medium and large sizes, and having more than 200 happy customers in our track record is exactly what we pride ourselves on!
Our in-house infrastructure:
The security of information is often one of the main concerns when our customers discuss their requirements, and we always advise that they won’t have to worry about this with us, because our in-house infrastructure and security procedures will guarantee maximum security for their projects. For example, for security-sensitive projects, we prohibit our staff from bringing their mobile devices into our delivery infrastructure.
3. CMC Global has been certificated for quality assurance:
CMC Global is CMMi-certified. CMC Global has reached Level 3 out of 5 levels in the globally recognized CMMi (Capability Maturity Model Integration) system; being one of the few Vietnamese IT outsourcing vendors who have earned this certification.
CMMi is a system of strict standards whose aim is to ensure the quality of the output that a company produces. Software developers need to follow these standards if they want to be qualified for demanding contracts, because many big clients require the certification of CMMi just to take a vendor into consideration.
This certification is among the factors that The US military is relying on to assess vendors for their projects.
CMC Global is ISO 27001:2013-certified. Our uncompromising quality standards have earned us another certification for quality, which is the ISO 27001:2013. ISO is an internationally recognised certificate given to companies who have a reliable quality management system (QMS). The ISO standards are one of the world’s most trusted and prominent quality management systems.
