When our clients first consider the option of having an Outsourced Software Developer many different questions run through their head. It could be about cultural challenges, potential language challenges, or geographical challenges.
I can not see my Software Developer so how do I know they are working properly? They are all valid fears and questions that everyone considering going through the outsourcing process should ask.
We at Cloud Employee recognise this and have built an After Care strategy that ensures all these fears are put to rest. Where other outsourced options bring you in and then leave you to your own devices, Cloud Employee is with you every step of the way. Our After Care Process is managed by our Community Director, Jason Gunn, with nearly 25 years of customer and client support under his belt in both in-house and outsourcing setups. He has a broad understanding of the needs on both sides and where the potential challenges lie. In addition, he has lived and worked in the Philippines for over 10 years, bringing a great understanding of the cultural nuances and the challenges that local Software Developers face when working with western clients. This combined expertise ensures smooth operational delivery.
The relationship between the Community Director and you, the client is extremely important as they are the main day-to-day contact person for you to share any thoughts, positive feedback or concerns with. Every day they monitor attendance, they will be the one to notify on the rare occasion that your Software Developer is not available, and will help guide them on when is most suitable to plan time off so that there is minimal impact to your business. Additionally, if you need additional equipment or work tools he can have that organized and set up for you and save you any hassle.
