Distributed Teams Lead to Success
Especially for larger software development projects, we often use "distributed" project teams from our locations in Germany and China. Project management, architecture creation and - in most cases - also a part of the development takes place in Germany. In addition, software developers from China participate in the project team. The ideal distribution is 1/3 to 2/3, i.e., a team of twelve people should consist of four people from Germany and eight people from China. For our customers, adding our Chinese colleagues to a project means a significant cost advantage, as we can offer the development services from China at a significantly lower price compared to German services. Another advantage is the higher flexibility and scalability of the project team, since our Chinese subsidiary provides more than 80 employees. There is no disadvantage in using Chinese services. All communication with our customers is handled by the project manager and the project participants in Germany. The same applies to project management, which is handled completely in-house by M&M Software. The internal communication takes place in English. We ensure that all project participants can communicate fluently with each other.
The German M&M Software locations are responsible for quality assurance, delivery and all administrative processes. For M&M Software customers, the provision of partial services by our Chinese software developers is imperceptible. It is reflected solely in a clear cost advantage.
