Our way of working

The following steps are normally run through to setup your Offshore Development Center (ODC) software development team:
Identify your Offshore Development Center (ODC) team
Setup the Offshore Development Center team at Manifera’s office
Your Offshore Development Center team working for your projects
More details on the above mentioned steps:
Identify your Offshore Development Center (ODC) team
  • Align with you on your requirements for the development team as per your needs.
  • Propose the resumes of our developers who match your requirements
  • In case you have specific needs for which we currently do not have the right developer available, we will search for the developer with the required skills using our extensive network.
Setup the Offshore Development Center team at Manifera’s office
  • If the software developers have been identified for your Offshore Development Center, the team will be set up.
  • Also the development environment like PCs/MACs, IDEs, tools, etc. will be set up according to your requirements.
  • As a good practice and if appreciated by you, one of your ODC’s team members can work onsite at your office for a certain period. This to get to know your team members, way of working and other specifics. Once the team member is back at our office, he/she will transfer the gained knowledge to the other IT offshore team members.
    This will provide a good basis for a long term and trustworthy relationship between your ODC team members and your current team.
Your Offshore Development Center team working for your projects
  • You or your project team will assign the tasks to your ODC team at our office. There are various ways of working together between your home office and your ODC team. Which one to choose is based on your projects' situation and your ideas. For example:

    a. The ODC team members work on a project closely together with your home office team. 
    b. The ODC team members work independent on a complete project for your company.

  • You or your project team will receive the Offshore Development Center’s team deliverable's and validate/accept these.
  • The above steps will be run through iteratively.
Other important points
  • We are using the Agile Scrum framework as a guide for our development process. We are also familiar with the Waterfall model.
  • Your ODC team at Manifera will use the same tools as are being used in your company, e.g. tools for version control (GitHub, BitBucket, SVC, etc.) and IDEs (Visual Studio, NetBeans, xCode, Eclipse, etc.), etc.
  • On a regular basis the time sheets indicating the number of hours worked for your projects will be shared with you. This will keep the effort as spent by your ODC team members transparent for you.
  • We use BaseCamp as a project management tool to keep track of activities, to do lists and discussions. As indicated earlier, we can also use the same tools as you are using.
  • For issues and change requests tracking Jira is being used. We are also using Jira for our time tracking and reporting. As indicated earlier, we can also use the same tools as per your requirements.
  • For communication, apart from the normal phone and email communication, we like to make use of Skype and Google Hangouts. Also here we are flexible and can use the same tool as your company is using.
