Remote work is great, but you need a sales outpost near your clients

Q: I'm an American corporate finance attorney who founded an offshore programming hotshop that has experience programming for municipal and military applications. We believe if people knew about us, they would use us. But how do we go about finding companies who use or are interested in employing outsourcing programmers, and how do we meet them? What are some resources we could use?

A: Offshore programming is a fast-growing, though relatively new, niche of the information-technology industry. Fueled by the demand for Year 2000 conversions and the lack of qualified U.S. labor, outsourcing programming companies -- mostly in developing countries like Russia -- take on projects for corporate clients, mainly from the U.S. or Europe. And they do so often for 30% to 60% less than it would cost at home.
Typically, companies use the foreign programmers for tedious, labor-intensive programming projects, freeing up their high-priced staff for other priorities. Since you have already got a viable shop overseas, you're in an enviable position. Now, experts say, you need to establish a physical presence in the U.S. or Europe, get your Web page listed on the major search engines, and hire salespeople to start digging up clients. Once you've gotten a couple of jobs and completed them well, word-of-mouth will be your best advertising -- especially if you can truly offer quality and substantial cost-savings.

Offshore Programming

The current stampede toward outsourcing programming should come as no surprise. For months now, the business press has been regurgitating claims from off-shore vendors that IT work costing $100 an hour in the United States can be done for $20 an hour in Bangalore or Russia. If those figures sound too good to be true, that's because they are. In fact, such bargain-basement labor rates tell only a fraction of the story about offshore outsourcing costs. The truth is, no one saves 80 percent by shipping IT work to Russia or any other country. Few can say they save even half that. As just one example, United Technologies, an acknowledged leader in developing offshore best practices, is saving just over 20 percent by outsourcing to Russia.
