"Completely in line with Danish consultants"
Nordic Aviation Capital:
Completely in line with Danish consultants
We have in-house developed an IT system that drives the management of the business and in line with our growth, we need a lot of new functionalities. In this context we were going to recruit IT developers, but we had difficulties finding candidates with the correct skills and level of quality required.
I was familiar with ProData Consult’s near shoring concept and went to Warsaw to examine whether it was an option. I must admit that we were a little skeptical, because we had previously had bad experiences with outsourcing to the East.
However I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The process has been professional throughout. We were presented with three candidates that completely matched our needs - and more. The consultants came to Denmark and joined us for a week, and then went back to the ProData Nearshoring center in Warsaw, Poland, from where they now work for us, and it all just works, really well.
The ProData Consult Pololand consultants have extremely high skills and are completely in line with Danish consultants - if not a tad better. They are hard-working, good at coming up with constructive suggestions and are very proactive and agile.
In addition to the consultants' high level of expertise, there is also an economic advantage as I can get 2:00 to 3:00 resources for one in Denmark. And another great advantage is that it is in the same time zone so that we can maintain close communication on daily basis via video conferencing.
It is also clear that ProData has many skilled resources available in Poland, so the client always has a good selection to choose between.
The partnership and the process are just complete and professional. There is no wasted time, and it just works. Initially, the plan was to use near shoring service as a temporary solution to deal with a backlog of important projects, but as it looks now, it could be a permanent solution for us. It runs well and even better than expected.

A straightforward solution with ProData’s Nearshoring
We were lacking specific IT-competencies in Norway and it was the right timing when ProData Consult presented their model for Nearshoring in Warsaw.
It was proven that ProData Consult was quick at finding skilled and well trained IT consultants for us. Also, the consultants have been quick to get into our systems in Norway and they understood our problems very well. The collaboration has worked very well, and for a good price.
It is a straightforward solution with ProData’s Nearshoring facility in Warsaw - especially because the consultants are self-motivated and is so well qualified, that we do not have to explain everything down to the smallest detail. They are a great help and it has been a good solution for us - we did not have the resources ourselves.
Our experience is that the Polish IT specialists have good working environments and there is excellent cooperation between specialists in Poland and our Norwegian IT department.
I am very satisfied with the service, and have just expanded it with several consultants.

KMD's experiences with Nearshoring in Poland
KMD began using ProData Consult's Nearshoring service in Poland in autumn 2014. Michael Anders Christiansen is Senior Project Manager in KMD and handles the daily management of ProData Consult's Nearshoring consultants in Warsaw.
"In my project in KMD, the team needed to be expanded by another five developers and two testers. Based on my
skill requirements, ProData Consult delivered 17 consultant CVs and their HR department then coordinated two tightly-packed days of interviews of all candidates in Warsaw. One of the candidates dropped out, but our expectations for qualified candidates were fully met and I am extremely satisfied with the entire process.
ProData Consult also handles all contract work on behalf of KMD.
Afterwards, all ProData consultants came to Denmark for two weeks to be introduced to the project and get to know the Danish team and vice versa. Unfortunately, one of the consultants was not notified that the meeting was taking place in Copenhagen, so he showed up at ProData's office in Warsaw. However, ProData made sure he was in Copenhagen the next day. The most important thing for me is that both teams can be merged into one team with no obstacles to daily work in terms of phone calls, chats, Lync meetings, etc.
I have really enjoyed ProData's professionalism in providing highly qualified consultants. Both on a technical/professional level and also on a personal level. After just a few weeks, I have already seen that the close cooperation is working and there is no distinction between the nationalities in the team.
ProData Consult has since requested follow-up at two meetings regarding progress and expectations for future cooperation. I am very satisfied with the way ProData makes sure the customer is satisfied with the results."

What are outsourcing, offshoring and nearshoring?
Outsourcing is the practice of transferring certain business functions or activities to a subcontractor located in the same country or abroad who can perform these activities at lower cost. Tasks can be moved "offshore" to a distant country, or "nearshore" to a nearby country.
Within the IT industry, companies can outsource IT projects, IT resources or the overall operation, maintenance and security of their IT systems and data.
Typically, activities are outsourced to help companies focus on their core competencies, become more competitive or reduce costs. By using a supplier that specialises in a particular activity, for instance, the work can be performed more efficiently - saving you time and money.
Outsourcing can also help you to manage order fluctuations, ensuring that you make full use of your in-house capacity. And for some companies, outsourcing offers an alternative to investing in their own production system. That can reduce capital ties and risk, so you won't be left with a loss-making production or resource unit should business conditions change negatively.
For some companies, outsourcing offers an alternative to investing in their own in-house production system, reducing both your risk and capital ties. Should business conditions change negatively, you won't be left with a loss-making production or resource unit. Outsourcing can also help you to manage order fluctuations, ensuring that you make full use of your in-house capacity.
Whether you're interested in cheaper production or increased flexibility, outsourcing may be the right move for you. If you don't have experience with international cooperation, using a Danish company that specializes in doing supplier work abroad for other Danish firms is highly recommended.
Offshoring is the practice of relocating a company's processes, tasks or projects to another country which lies outside the coastal area. Typically, companies offshore to India, China or other countries in Asia, where the cost of living is significantly lower.
Nearshoring refers to the outsourcing of manpower or activities to a country with lower costs but located within a geographical and cultural community. Advantages of nearshoring include smaller time differences, shorter travel times and greater cultural and political similarities.
