Executive Summary

The client firm had never contracted work to any firm locally or globally. Contracting work to another firm and that too in another country was a double-challenge for them. Mindfire’s immense experience in Windows/Web software development, Microsoft and related technologies helped establish the initial trust level. This was well supported by the different business engagement models Mindfire proposed to the client firm. Mindfire delivered a full scale, extensible virtual team setup, with experienced resources involved in multiple technologies for client and server applications. Having had years of experience providing virtual teams to numerous clients, Mindfire continues to use its unique remote development methodology based on critical success factors, with a strong understanding of the subtleties of distributed & synchronous/asynchronous collaborative efforts.
