Avoids offshoring risks
Does the thought of offshoring mission critical IT projects give you pause for concern? Perhaps you’ve already had a negative offshoring experience or heard career-ending stories from those who have. If so, you might want to consider onshoring your next project in one of the most attractive places to live and work in America –Indianapolis, Indiana.
Creates happier and more productive workers
So, what’s so great about Greater Indianapolis? Carmel, a nearby suburb, won the 2015 Niche Local ranking as “Best Place to Raise a Family“. In 2012, Money Magazine ranked Carmel the “#1 smaller city to live in America” citing their great schools, affordability, plenty of jobs and lots to do when compared to cities with a population between 50,000-500,000 . But, what really revs us up is the fact that OnshoreIndy is headquartered in Carmel, just thirty minutes from downtown Indy and the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Delivers a low risk, high quality value proposition
For insight into the OnshoreIndy value proposition, let’s compare Indianapolis to our second favorite American city, San Francisco:
- According to indeed.com, the average posted Web Application Developer salary in Indianapolis in 2015 was $80,000 compared to $125,000 in San Francisco…a whopping 56.25% more.
- If that Indy-based developer making $80,000 moved to San Francisco, it would take a $139,421 annual salary to maintain a similar standard of living, according to payscale.com’s Cost of Living Calculator. That’s a 74.28% salary increase just to break-even. Gulp!
- At 264% of comparable housing in Indianapolis, Bay Area housing is among the highest in the country. This causes workers to move into the less expensive suburbs, thereby increasing their commute times already averaging one hour one-way…more than double the average Indianapolis commute. This is why Menlo Park based Facebook offers their employees a $10k bonus to reduce their commute by moving closer to the office.
Now you can see why we left our hearts in San Francisco, but brought our wallets back home again to Indiana. Such cost disparities beg for a more economical approach. That’s why we created OnshoreIndy to help companies in high cost markets reduce their IT spend without reducing quality or increasing risk. In our Bay Area example, let’s assume that that the 56.25% salary differential translates into a 50% rate differential for consulting resources. So, a consultant at a $95 bill rate in Indianapolis could cost $142 in San Francisco…$47 more per hour. At 2,000 hours per year, that equates to $94,000 in additional annual expense per consultant. We think that’s real money in any market…don’t you?
Solves your remote worker management problems
Sure you do. That’s why you’ve started to loosen the restrictions on remote workers. After all, isn’t that the easiest way to tap into top talent at affordable prices? Just let folks (employees and consultants alike) work out of their homes, wherever they may be. Right? Possibly, but in our experience, many companies still struggle to manage remote workers effectively. That’s why OnshoreIndy manages them for you. No more wondering if and when remote workers are actually working. And, no more worrying about the problems that arise from the lack of professional nutrition and socialization that isolated remote workers often suffer from. Never mind the technical difficulties. Little wonder why after five years of working remotely for Microsoft, consultant/blogger Scott Hanselman described it this way –“Being remote is wonderful and it sucks.”
At OnshoreIndy, we provide our true IT pros with a start-up like hip, happnin’ and cool working environment. While working for clients around the country, our consultants also have the opportunity to rub shoulders with their peers and bounce ideas off one another…face-to-face. We call it professional nutrition. If they want to just grab something out of the fridge and work through lunch, they can. But, if they’d like to enjoy some down time with their OnshoreIndy mates, they can do that too. We know from many years of experience that the best way to serve our clients is to take the best possible care of those on the front lines providing the service…whatever IT takes!
Accelerates the building of your high performance high tech team
Finally (you’re gonna love this), at OnshoreIndy we understand that job #1 for you is to build the highest performing high tech team you possibly can. Your team, not ours. That’s why we offer a Free Agent Guarantee with every OnshoreIndy consultant. After four months on contract, every one of our consultants is eligible for hire by the client for a modest conversion fee. Want your new employee to continue enjoying the benefits of hanging out at OnshoreIndy? No problem. For a monthly facilities charge that should be significantly below your internal burden rate, we’re glad to accommodate so long as space allows.
