6. Why would I engage with TrustedQA when I can get the same support at a 1/3 of the cost oversees?

A. The initial cost savings of a potential off-shore engagement are hard to ignore. However, we’ve discovered that organizations that are serious about quality that engage with off-shore solutions typically face a number or challenges, which may include geographic and cultural differences between domestic and offshore teams. And although not all off-shore engagements fail, we often hear from customers about a lack of visibility into day-to-day work, lack of competent leadership and points-of-contact, and system access problems to onshore servers and applications, which leads to unexpected hidden costs. When looking at off-shore pricing holistically, the cost savings, and more importantly, quality, may not be as substantial as what is initially proposed.

7. I need some extra assistance for a project – but it’s government work and a clearance is required – can TrustedQA help?

A. Yes, supplying qualified, cleared, temporary help to government contractors is a significant part of our business.
