A new approach to software outsourcing

Different clients look for different things from an outsource software partner. Headforwards offers two engagement models to ensure you get the right mix of quality and value for money.

Headforwards was founded on the belief that clients are short-changed by traditional software outsource companies – mainly due to the “on-the-bench” model of project resourcing.

When you just pull whoever’s available off the bench to work on a client project, there’s no continuity, no knowledge retention, and no foundation of trust. Quality often suffers, and outsourcing can become a false economy.

Two ways to work with Headforwards

Two ways to work with Headforwards

Headforwards has deliberately avoided that out-moded model. Instead, it focuses on forming effective teams who stay together long-term and continuously develop new ways to deliver value to the client.

Companies can choose to engage Headforwards in one of two ways: as a long-term partner or for a short-term project.

Long-term partnership

Long-term partnership

The cloud has made continuous delivery the norm, so many clients are looking for long-term, ongoing and cost-effective support from their outsource partner.

For this kind of engagement, Headforwards works with the client to recruit the team, so everyone is confident the right people are on board, and a strong bond forms from the start.

Short-term project

Short-term project

Not every organisation is looking for a long-term partnership. Some want to outsource a discrete short-term project, like a prototype, proof of concept or app.

Headforwards has formed a special projects team for short-term engagements, who will bring together the right people to deliver each project.

It’s all about getting the right team on to the project. While we have two models in place, there’s still room for flexibility – we’ll always work with our clients to co-create the right model for their needs.
