KB_Soft Group is Siberian muscle hired to speed Vector
Networks software development
PC management specialists Vector Networks Inc. and its UK parent company Vector
Networks Ltd. has dealt with the skills shortage in the UK by signing up a
Russian company to help speed up product development of their flagship PC
Management products. With an increased product portfolio Vector Networks was
increasingly aware of the need to maintain low "time to market" development
cycles while keeping lines of communication short and development costs down.
Vector Networks bucked the trend to outsource some software development
projects to the Indian sub-continent by turning to a largely untapped source of
talent, namely Russia. After initially analysing the work of several Russian
and Ukrainian software developers, Vector Networks devised a trial project,
small in scope but technically tricky enough to test analytical and programming
skills to the limit.
As a result they have chosen their outsourcing partners, a team based in
Siberia - KB_Soft Group. The team has the ideal skill set to work with Vector
Networks.Colin Bartram, Product Marketing Director at Vector Networks expands:
"We decided upon a small team that was experienced in the use of our preferred
toolset and highly trained. There was an immediate rapport, and they offered
technical excellence, diligence, flexibility and co-operation. These were key
elements for Vector Networks to maintain our high standards in development. The
Vector Group as a company is interested in acquiring other complementary
software technology and products to be sold via our extensive worldwide
reseller network. Outsourcing to provide additional development muscle is
invaluable for keeping the existing product ranges up to speed and being able
to develop any new product sets quickly for the channel".
