As mentioned before, a great number of outsourcing agencies in Romania embrace agile methodologies in project management as an efficient way of working. Firstly agile is the process of breaking a project into several stages and adjusting the results on the go. However, outsourcing companies embrace an agile mindset for its flexibility and responsibility share in collaboration with clients. You will find it easy to partner with Romanian outsourcing companies because you will get a team of specialists. The teams are steered by a highly rated project manager responsible to align the team to your expectations, to offer you transparency over process and control over quality. Regular meetings by the end of the sprints of one or two weeks will be planned however the project manager is always available for your updates, adjustments, and concerns.
Worried about time differences? Legends say that there are vampires here but we are pretty sure only Dracula is productive at night. Outsourcing employees prefer a productive 8-hour shift during the day. Taking this into consideration, outsourced projects run smoothly because the Romanian working day overlaps with the most of other time zones of interest. When collaborating with Western Europe, there is a difference of 2 hours maximum. Both stakeholders can easily adjust to each other’s workflow. The partnership with US clients can also perform at a high rate as the overlap is 2-3 hours, good enough for results and future plans alignment.
To all this agility and compatibility add a good internet speed. Romania ranks 4th in the top countries with the fastest download speed worldwide allowing you to synchronize with your outsourced time in a glance.
Within our digital walls in Grapefruit, we base our workflow on agile principles more than on predefined rules. From the very first moment of the collaboration, a project manager and an account manager are assigned to the client. Together they define the project by setting the objectives, time estimate, way of work, and costs. From now on you will have an account manager (AM) keeping track of your project results and billing. Meanwhile, the project manager (PM) will break down your goals into smaller phases and will assign a team, all within the Jira project management tool. As the project goes, we keep practicing the feedback loop with the client to deliver what’s expected. Any time you have a news request or adjustment, AM and PM will analyze how the changes impact your project. The goal is to deliver what’s best in order to meet initial goals and deadlines. If those must change, they will make a new plan and present it to you for the approval. Weekly and monthly reporting are what will bring you the most clarity over the team efficiency, project progress, and expenses. Easy to start, fast to adapt in real-time, your project turns into fruitful digital solutions with us.
