Sequential Software Solutions (3S’) was set up to offer a service to UK SMEs that do not have the structure, processes, experience and connections which would enable them to benefit effectively from offshore software development.
The benefits of resource availability and cost savings are readily available to very large companies that can effectively manage the risks involved and have many custom development projects in the pipeline. Now these benefits are available to SMEs through 3S.
For SMEs, custom development projects may be fewer in number and the costs involved in managing the risks of such offshore projects are disproportionate. Then they decide to have the work done onshore and run into resource availability issues. Projects are delayed, efficiency and market opportunities missed, and the projects wither on the vine.
That is where we come in, acting as the delivery and risk management agent for our clients. We know software development and we have offshore strategic development partners.
One Stop Offshore Solutions
Our founder, John Beattie, has many years experience in delivering offshore software projects and has built up a wide range of strategic partners, principally in the Indian sub-continent. He could see that those UK SMEs who were brave enough to opt for offshore development went through a very painful and costly learning process.
He determined to build a team which could act as the development agent for SMEs and manage the risks for them, from business analysis through to final delivery.
Our project managers and business analysts have wide international software development experience and cross-cultural flexibility, having worked with software teams in places as diverse as the Middle East, Russia, Scandinavia and the US.
