Benefits of an Offshore Software Development Center

48

Software development can be of three categories- Desktop, web, and/or mobile. This has become a necessity for multiple companies, organizations, and government agencies across the globe. But companies do not always have the capacity and human resources to carry out large-scale projects.   

An example is when a software development company/department does not have the required resources or is not willing to invest complete time/funds on a project. These among other reasons would require software development outsourcing to experienced companies. Yet, there could be complications in choosing between an onsite and an offshore software development company. Trust comes first. Also, how would you know if the offshore development center has adequate expertise and experience? 

For this, it is necessary to recognize that an offshore software development center is an extension of an onsite development company or a completely different third party that takes care of all stages of the software development life cycle. Services could include even portions like the development stage, enhancement, testing, and/or quality assurance. There are highly qualified software development companies in India and nearby regions. This post is meant to explore some of the many benefits of choosing the services of an offshore software development company.

  • Lesser Costs 

This is the core advantage as mentioned earlier. Overseas development centers will be cost-effective owing to variations in currency rates. Moreover, a business does not have to make investments in infrastructure, technology as well as staff resources. For example, constant salaries need not be paid to full-time onsite resources. Everything will be handled by the offshore development team and the total costs will be only a fraction or less than what could be incurred from in-house cost.

  • Round-the-Clock Services 

An onsite company in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia among others can handle their core line of business or business development activities such as promotion and client coordination in their office timings. Offshore centers will take care of the major tasks of development, configuration, and testing in their respective timelines. This ensures 24 hours work on a software development project and faster completion with a 100% focus on quality.

  • Team Scaling 

You can select the exact team required, specific members of a team, or the whole offshore development center for your requirements. Outsourcing software development activities gives the advantage of flexibility. That is, pay only for the services or technical expertise required. For example, a few offshore developers can be hired for a specific software enhancement project. Team size can be ramped up or down based on requirements.

  • No Need of Training 

An offshore development team will feature highly experienced and qualified developers. Hence no additional time will be required to be invested in training staff. You can be assured of maximum efficiency and product quality.

Offshore software development involves a combination of modern technology and cost-effectiveness with timely project implementation.  Majestic People Infotech is an experienced software development company in India. We have provided offshore services that include but are not limited to,

Importance of Modern Website Designing

111

Technologies keep improving year after year but the importance of a website for companies and professionals will always be at the top.  Website designing and web development are not new. There are several websites designing companies in India but not all follow the customer-centric approach as we do. Majestic People Infotech is an experienced web designing company in Coimbatore, India, and is also an offshore development center for international clients.  Our approach to website design concentrates on giving solutions to clients, which is beyond eye-pleasing templates and advanced features. MPI at first identifies the purpose of the proposed website. We determine if the website is to

  • Help end-users buy something they need.
  • Help them find information.
  • Help them contact others
  • Help them to talk to the organization.

But there are always two sides to a website- visitors to the site and the website’s owners or handlers. MPI ensures that all stakeholders receive the maximum potential out of our website designing services. Hence, the brand identity of our clients along with the products/services they offer, and the interests of the core target audience will be reflected in the web templates that we create. For these, we focus on the following design features as well as other aspects:

Home Page 

This is arguably the most important of a website. The Home Page is what people first see when they visit a company’s website. MPI makes it sure that all information of the brand name and products/services/information offered is visible on the home page. The template will be visually appealing and the fonts/colors which are used will reflect the prime objective of a website.  For example, the website of an educational institution will be different from that of a plastic manufacturer. We also will pay special attention to the placement of images, headers/footers, and navigation menus on all pages.

Mobile Responsiveness 

It is and will always remain the most important aspect of web design. The websites we create will be uniformly accessible on mobile devices of different sizes and screen resolutions, along with being uniformly accessible on all other devices. MPI recognizes that people may visit a client’s website from different platforms. We thus use advanced tools along with the right coding to ensure maximum mobile responsiveness in our coding.

Content Management System 

We understand that the websites for businesses or even websites for government departments in India would have regular activities and modifications.  It may not be productive to entrust all activities that include posting of blogs or small changes to content, on web development company in India. MPI thus utilizes user-friendly content management systems to manage the websites we create, and training is provided to clients.

The most apt one will be chosen for your business and we will guide you on its usage.

Call to Action

The objective of having a website is to convert visitors to customers. MPI recognizes this factor and hence implements proper call-to-action buttons in our web designs. These are in the forms of fill-in-forms, shortcuts to emails/phones, social media links, live chat and more. It could also mean on a website that tells the user to take some specified action. We normally integrate a command or action phrase, such as ‘Sign Up’ or ‘Buy Now’ and generally takes the form of a button or hyperlink.

There are many more such aspects that we at Majestic People Infotech include in a modern web design that is custom-built for your business. Give us a call, mail us or directly visit us for a quick discussion.

Aspects of Professional Website Designing

145

The recent pandemic of Coronavirus or Covid-19 has also given a few professional lessons; time management, multi-tasking and establishing a brand of yourselves. We will leave the health aspects out of this as it is not related to the topic. The economy has taken a steep dive and job losses along with pay-cuts have become the norm. Lockdowns and restrictions in transport have only added oil to the fire. Yet, this is not the end. If you can’t go to a workplace, take the workplace with you.

That is, professional websites can be designed and developed for your brand. You could be an individual, a team or a company employing several teams. Current trends as well as the challenges of the pandemic make it mandatory for you to have a website. Why?

A professional website is your digital visiting card that is placed in front of clients from anywhere across the world 24/7!

What is your passion? Are you an author? Do you do handle bakery and catering services? Are you a sports professional, an actor, a public speaker, or even a politician? Then you must have an independent website which brings you more exposure to the target audience and beyond. Then you may ask, what if there already is a website? What I am still lacking?” Well, the problem is not the website, but what is in it. Website designing is a complex department and you will need the assistance of a professional website designing company for this purpose.

This post is meant to give you an outline of whatever is required in a professional website.

Home Page: This is the first impression of anyone visiting your website. It needs to be visually appealing and have shortcuts to all content on the website. Visitors should get a good overview of whatever you are offering, directly on the home page. Everyone is busy these days and you can’t expect people to check out every piece of content in search of what they are looking for. Proper space and placement of content is important.

Navigation Menus: You have something on your website to offer people? Show it to them! These menus should have links to other pages on your website. And menus need to be placed properly on the header and footer. There are different purposes for each type of menu. For example, the header menu can have links to pages where you speak about your company, products/services, testimonials from other clients, as well your contact details. Your footer menu could include shortcuts to your social media pages. These menus need to appear on every page.

Content & Optimization: Content has always been the king of a website. But be clear; content can include words, images and videos as well as tone of your content should match the latest trends and must also be appealing to the target audience. For example, if you are an academician who takes online classes; your content should attract students. Once again, the content should specify the age group. School-age children are students while working professionals willing to learn more are also students. Importantly, these pieces of content must be optimized to leading search engines such as Google and Yahoo. People should see your website’s link first when they search for your line of business in your locality.

Mobile Responsiveness: VERY IMPORTANT! Google has in fact made it mandatory that a website must be mobile responsive for being listed in its top results. That is, your website must be uniformly accessible from any device or screen resolution. This shouldn’t be taken for granted. Website themes may appear differently on various platforms such as mobiles, androids and tablets. If you already have a website. you need to approach a web enhancement company in India for analyzing it and identifying its extent of responsiveness. A larger number of people are browsing the internet from mobile phones and not making your website mobile responsive will result in heavy loss of prospective customers.

Hosting & Security: A website is a digital office. But where is it built or where is it located? This requires hosting platforms such HostGator, A2Hosting and Amazon Web Services. Your website needs to be hosted securely and the platform must always be made accessible. Proper backups of your web pages along with its content needs to be maintained. This may be considered last in a website designing process, but you need to give it enough emphasis as a single breach could make you lose all your content.

This was an outline of what a professional brand website must possess. We know this as Majestic People Infotech is an experienced web designing company located in Coimbatore, India with clients from across the world. Reach out to us for a more elaborate discussion. We can redefine your web presence.

How can Digital Marketing Help Your Business?

399

The economy is in a troublesome state now because of the effects of Coronavirus and its consequences of lockdowns along with social distancing. People are not allowed or do not prefer to come outside for shopping. Moreover, lockdowns have limited the consumers from learning about new products, services or offers that a business in India may provide. Digital marketing with e-commerce applications are the best solutions for this. For a better understanding, the term digital marketing refers to all marketing processes that are done using electronic devices and/or the internet. However, digital marketing is a broad term that further can be separated into the following categories.

Outbound Marketing

In this method, your business or the digital marketing team appointed for the same initiates the conversation and reaches out to a targeted customer group. That is, a “shout-out” is made to prospective customers and also . Examples include digital flyers, brochures, catalogs, etc.), social media posts/advertisements, cold calls, and emails. Digital marketing companies in India will have specific teams for these purposes. In addition, digital promotion teams maintain large databases of customer-details that have been sourced from previous transactions along with continuous research. All this data can be used to reach out to genuine customers. Outbound marketing is one aspect of digital promotion that can help your business.

Inbound Marketing:

This can be simply translated as ensuring customers (prospective and existing) get interested in your business without you reaching out to them. Social media promotion, search engine optimization and even a little of great website designing are some examples. In addition, content such as blogs, brochures, newsletters, and more can be developed to increase exposure that the target audience has to your products and services. The concept is simple. There are massive amounts of people who browse the internet and social media platforms every day. Inbound marketing helps business get leads by grabbing the attention of these net users.

The types of digital marketing have been explained in plain simple words. Your business can be of any industry and could be fulfilling the needs of diverse audiences. But digital marketing should be considered as mandatory resource to boost business prospects. This is because its advantages include;

  • Cost-Effective as you need not invest on print, resources and/or distribution

Current Importance of E-Commerce Websites

421

Lockdowns that were intended to contain the outspread of Coronavirus have been lifted in India as well as other parts of the world. The economy is gradually opening but it could take time to see normal business again. People are still cautious and continue to maintain social distancing. Moreover, rising costs of traveling may discourage people from directly visiting stores or even restaurants. The better alternative for a business of any industry would be to go for e-commerce websites. The term is common these days with the presence of e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, and more. However, there is a misnomer that e-commerce platforms are common places for all types of firms to sell their products.

But Majestic People infotech (MPI) knows that it is not as we are an experienced web development and e-commerce development company in Coimbatore, India with 12+ years of experience. MPI has provided website designing and software development services to clients across India. Hence, we have used the knowledge gained from this experience to assist businesses and retail stores across the region have a proper understanding of e-commerce websites and their importance in the current scenario.

What are e-commerce platforms?

An eCommerce website is an online platform that sells products and services through means of data transfer as well as funds over the internet. It can function on the web and even on mobile platforms (m-commerce).

Types of E-commerce Platforms for Businesses

Business-to-Business (B2B): These platforms for the transfer of goods and services between different businesses. For example, factories manufacturing furniture or stationeries can have e-commerce platforms for selling these goods to office, schools along with government agencies. Or, a software development company like MPI can have a platform to sell its SaaS products to other businesses.

Business-to-Consumer (B2C): E-commerce giants like Amazon, Flipkart, Jabong and others fall in this category. Businesses can sell their goods indirectly to customers who originate from different locations across the country or even the world. However, the mentioned e-commerce platforms can also be called multichannel websites. Besides these, there can be omni channel websites through which a business or store can sell its own products. Payments can be made electronically through bank-transfers, payment gateways or even cash on delivery.

Advantages of E-Commerce Websites in the Current Scenario

Adherence to Social Distancing Norms. There need not be any large gathering at stores or even offices offering services and non-physical products that may include technology, designs or even educational sessions.

Reaching out to a wider span of customers from different regions. This is much a bigger advantage when compared to physical stores. Also, the travel restrictions and lockdowns owing to Coronavirus may not permit people to directly visit stores. An e-commerce website is the best solution.

Online Payments. People may not have enough cash in hands and there could be chances of ATMs being unfilled during this pandemic. But these incidents shouldn’t affect the profits of a business. E-commerce permits online payments with which people can pay for goods and services directly from their bank accounts along with digital wallets.

It must be considered that development of responsive e-commerce websites can ensure access from both the computer as well as mobiles of consumers. This can be highly beneficial for businesses and other commercial organizations to recover from the impact of Coronavirus.
