Methodology

Our structured methodology for taking up application support relies on careful planning to ensure all the required knowledge is in place before the hand-over to the support team is completed.

By following a carefully constructed phased hand-over, progression from one phase to the next is dependent on support milestones being achieved and technical targets reached. This enables us to ensure that the take-up of support offshore is seamless and problem free.

Thanks to the strategic placement of our partners' development and maintenance facilities around the world, we are able to make full use of time zone differences to locate and resolve most problems before the start of the next working day at our clients' locations.
