Q?

Why Indovance? What differentiates you from the herd?

A.

First, we are not brokers - the ones who accept projects from clients and then in-turn outsource to another company in Argentina, Philippines, China or India. We have our own offshore production office and we control the quality of the people we hire, the processes and every small detail that matters. Secondly, we are experienced working on hundreds of projects around the world and we have developed time-tested work processes to make outsourcing really work for you. Lastly, most firms work with large firms only - At Indovance, we work with a wide range of sizes of companies (1 Person Company to companies with hundreds of employees) - we bring the prowess of CAD outsourcing to the mainstream, not just to the big players.

Q?

How small or large a project can you undertake?

A.

We work with small boutique shops to large firms, however, the size of the project we work on is not important, it's the regularity of the work. For most of the clients, we have setup studios (Back Offices) within our office and that has resulted in small dedicated teams to work for specific clients. It takes time for our teams to understand each others way of working and develop an understanding that is critical for long-term CAD outsourcing. In general, we have clients who provide us work either continuously or regularly. Having said that, we also work on one time project, if the project size is justifiable.

Q?

How many firms are currently outsourcing CAD services?

A.

The CAD outsourcing marketplace is changing rapidly, especially over last few years. Until recently, CAD outsourcing was not being openly discussed in the user meetings and conferences, however, that is changing quickly. Until a couple of years ago, only large Architectural and engineering firms were seriously pursuing CAD outsourcing and smaller firms were feeling left out. Indovance is changing that marketplace by offering even smaller firms an opportunity to leverage the competitive advantages of outsourcing and empowering them with CAD outsourcing solutions that really work. The number of firms that are currently outsourcing is still small (maybe 5% or less), however, within a short period of time (5-10 years), the number is expected to go up drastically and the companies that jump on the CAD outsourcing boat today, will have a strong competitive advantage, tomorrow.
