Our method

Next Generation Outsourcing

The European IT talent market has become too competitive to deliver truly excellent technology teams reliably and quickly. That's why we work with a hybrid offshoring method that has been optimised over the years and is nothing like traditional offshoring:

01
Analysis
TS Next Gen Outsourcing Methode

We analyse what is required for the successful delivery of the task at hand in a hybrid offshore model:

  • The complexity of the task at hand

  • Your existing resources

  • Additional resources required, including skills profiles

  • Your maturity level for working with remote teams

  • Coordinated bridgehead approach (communication and delivery)

  • Team development model

TS Next Gen Outsourcing Methode

Designing the optimal target operating model for your project.

02
Focus on the top 5% talent
TS Next Gen Outsourcing Team

The team is made up entirely of top engineers, who stand out for their skill and dedication. They are almost impossible to find and pay for in Europe. We use offshoring primarily to work reliably with outstanding talent, not to be inexpensive.

  • We use a data-driven process to build very strong teams in a matter of weeks.

  • This requires a very large talent market. That is why we are focusing on India, by far the largest IT talent market in the world.

TS Next Gen Outsourcing Team

Providing you with an excellent team for your project.

03
World-class local management
TS Next Gen Outsourcing Management

Our local management team, with over 20 years of experience in the digital economy, ensures high performance and stability by fostering the right culture and providing world-class conditions.

  • The team sees itself as part of your team - thinking along with you, on an equal footing, influenced by European culture, available during European business hours, and very different from what you might expect from traditional outsourcers.

  • A world-class development center, ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certified, comparable to the digital unicorn environment in Europe.

Ensuring high performance and stability.

04

TS Next Gen Outsourcing CTO

Highly experienced former CTOs, CPOs, VP Engineering and VP Infrastructure from successful digital companies and unicorns - all based in Europe - are responsible for your projects and team expansions.

  • They understand your specific challenges from their own operational experience. And they've successfully overcome them many times.

  • They think holistically, see the big picture, and find cost-effective solutions.

  • They have been working very successfully with offshore teams in India for years using our methodology.

  • They know how to integrate existing teams in Europe with offshore teams to form ONE team.

The challenge: The particularly labor-intensive core processes surrounding the onboarding and scheduling of learners had to be fully automated so that 95% of cases could be processed without human intervention. A self-service option for learners also had to be implemented.

The challenge: Adair's founding team had a great idea, but no technical team to turn the idea into a product. The team knew that despite their strong IT network, it would easily take 6-9 months to build a really good development team in Europe.

"This is the crème de la crème of employees that you won't even find in Germany." GlobalEnglish Corporation - Silicon Valley-based pioneer

After the global roll-out of the training system, usage rates increased by 80%, with users from over 100 countries. The company risked missing SLAs with large customers due to insufficient 24/7 availability and responsiveness, especially in Asia and Latin America. The infrastructure was not sufficiently scalable, resulting in high server and personnel costs. 24/7 DevOps support became necessary.

"Working together on the same level as with a very strong team on site." Common factor - Provider of development services for SaaS companies

Challenge: Years ago, Common factor developed its own web conferencing software for a SaaS customer, which had since been neglected. This component was essential for the client, but very risky. It partly used Flash, which soon ended. The software was outdated, the code monolithic, with security vulnerabilities and scaling issues. It also lacked important features such as a mobile app and MS Teams integration.
