What are the Considerations and Criteria when selecting an Outsourcing Partner/ Service Provider?
When you outsource a product development project, you have many questions. How do you choose the optimal partner for such a collaboration? What is the impact of your choice? In the short term and over the product lifetime?
As an engineering company, we do just such external embedded and software development. The way we do our developments does not have to suit you. Nevertheless, we try to show you the selection criteria and implications as honestly as possible so that you can make the best choice for you.
