Technology Partner Selection

For the potential clients who would like to find a local technology partner, Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative offers services of selecting the technology partner for setting up the Offshore Development Center (ODC) in Ukraine.

What is ODC and the ODC benefits for the client:

  • The ODC model of work is good for both startups and existing businesses and serves as a technology and software engineering extension of client’s main facility.
  • ODC allows the client to focus on core business and operation and allows a quick set up as well as a quick cancellation.
  • ODC is set up and supported by an outsourcing service provider/technology partner usually at their premises and with existing, ready to use infrastructure, administrative resources, procedures and management.
  • The ODC model of work is transparent and allows getting better control over development process.
  • The ODC model provides great cost savings and the upfront costs are reduced.

We will select for you software development and IT outsourcing companies that meet your requirements the most, mainly in three steps:

  • Initial screening (based on client’s criteria and requirements) – long list of candidates
  • In-depth study and investigation – short list of candidates
  • Due diligence – final candidates
In order to provide the client with the best results, we recommend selecting a technology partner according to plan developed by us over the long time of our work on the market.

The plan of the typical project on the technology partner selection usually looks as following (it is optional and can be changed according to the client’s needs):

  • The client provides information about the project and requirements to the technology partner
  • Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative carries out the selection of the companies that meet all the requirements
  • Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative creates the list of candidates and delivers the profiles of companies for the client’s consideration
  • The client selects one or several companies
  • The client requests the additional information from the candidates if there is a need
  • Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative arranges online meetings or conference calls with the candidates selected by the client to discuss the details
  • The client decides and selects the companies they would like to meet for the direct communication
  • Ukrainian Hi-Tech Initiative arranges meetings with the selected companies
  • Depending on the meeting results the client selects the technology partner
  • The client sign a contract with the technology partner after all negotiations are finished

Time line

In case a client responds and proceeds quickly the time from initial client’s request to signing a contract with a potential technology partner can take a month. The time from the initial request to receiving the list of candidates and company presentations by client can take 5-10 business days. The duration of typical project on the technology partner selection is usually about 1.5 months. The service of provider selection is free.
