A key to a successful offshore project is a seamless communication on priorities and information requirements.
Let’s imagine one scenario where an airplane pilot doesn’t have any mechanism to communicate with the air traffic control team or loss the connection with them. Scary, right!
Here, both play an important role, a pilot has responsibilities to ensure safe operation of the plane and air traffic control is responsible for maintaining the safe, systematic, and efficient flow of air traffic.
Both have to work flawlessly to fulfill their respective responsibilities and ensure a safe journey of passengers. The same methodology works in any offshore development relationship.
Both should have clear communication, same works in case of offshore deployment, where an airline pilot will be a client and an air traffic control team will be offshoring partner.
It becomes a responsibility for both parties to achieve the ultimate goal in critical situations and safely accomplish the project.
Duties are being distributed in teams and nevertheless, teams face miscommunication leading project away from its goal.
Therefore, distributed teams need to be proactive to ensure a smooth communication process using the business tools to track offshore development work.
The first point to keep in mind while communicating with offshore developers, to avoid fall into communication trap is:
It becomes difficult for the companies, especially small businesses to entrust their work to the servicing company that is in a different country.
Not only this but also a language gap and different culture. As a result, you are unable to manage the development process as easy as you can do it with your in-house team.
There is one way to overcome this issue and it is to maintain transparency between you and an offshore development team in all the aspects related to the project.
This doesn’t mean to just identify new ways and tools to generate value but to know the insights of the client’s wishlist and requirements.
We at Outsourcing Pundit give clear transparency in the following points to our client’s
- No hidden charges / all the costs associated with the project will be known to the client.
- Clients can screen the resources before deploying them for their projects.
- Allow clients to choose the professionals from our portal as per their project requirements.
- We train resources to invest more time in driving efficiency.
- Resources hired by a client will be focusing on his project only.
It is very easy to coordinate with a team or a person while you are in the same premise, simply you walk over a person’s deck, talk about the problem and come up with a solution.
But this becomes a little tough with offshore resources when the task needs to be approved by a person. It needs regular check-ins for any type of projects.
You need to set regular conference calls with them, sharing information repository and email regularly.

Mostly all companies and their remote partners go through the same step of gaining an understanding of what a client wants to build.
This becomes the best time to formally exchange objectives, needs, and goals between you and your virtual offshore development team.
