Offshore Development Centre (ODC)

What is an ODC?

An Offshore Development Center or ODC is a dedicated development center located in India for software development, testing and support activity. The purpose behind an ODC is to take advantages of the technological know-how available in India, cost advantages and the reduced time to market.

We can assist a Client in setting up an Offshore Development Center, wherein the ODC, to start with, will run under our company. We assist in the operations of the ODC, providing the resources for development work, managing the ODC and complete lifecycle of Software Development. This frees the client from worry of the day-to-day operations of the ODC.
