Meaning Of Iqura
Top 10 Reasons
Top 10 Reasons to select Iqura as your partner
There are many reasons why we are your ideal choice when it comes to outsourcing your critical software requirements; here are
ten good reasons
why you should talk to us.
Don’t let the branding and the slick presentations make your decision about whom to outsource to – ask about the success ratio of projects. Ultimately, what’s important is whether your software gets delivered.
We have an enviable track record of delivery – more than 85% into production at last count – compared to an industry average of 40%.
That’s what they will tell you. Find out how effectively you will be able to communicate your requirements. How easy is it for you to escalate? How important are you to that vendor and what bracket of deal size do you fall into? Will you get the cream of their programmers or the ones who couldn’t get onto the $50 million project?
We are big enough and have been in business long enough so you don’t have to worry about our stability. Yet, we are small enough to ensure that our CEO, CTO or Chief of Delivery are always in the loop and are just a phone call away. We work with a select number of customers and you are important to us.
We will break the rules.
Have a presentation in two days for which you want to preview an upcoming feature to a customer? Don’t get bogged down by internal red tape in a “corporation” where your change request has to be sent to the Project Leader who needs to forward it to his Project Manager and then she needs to forward to Business for approval.
Our small size makes us flexible. We are quick to answer your concerns and come up with ideas and solutions for problems that may crop up. Our management team is always available to steer the project and offer guidance. We have a process-driven engineering team – but we also know that there are times when you need to be out-of-the-box.
We will learn your business.
What happens if the programmer you explained your entire system to decided to take up an alternate job in the midst of your project? What if the Project Manager did that? A few of the programmers leave? Don’t let your software hurt because of the high demand for software professionals.
We take pride in the fact that our first overseas customer is still with us after 7+ years. We are able to continue such long engagements (irrespective of team members) because our CEO, CTO or COO is personally involved in your software and they aren’t going anywhere.
Your business is critical.
We understand that your software is critical for your business. That’s because your business is critical for us. It’s not one amongst the hundreds of projects we are executing, but one amongst the ten. At Iqura, your business counts – that’s why we make sure we keep it. 80% of the software we build directly generates revenue or is part of the service delivery process for our customers.
We are NOT hiring.
We know we are doing something right when those we reject are hired by our competitors! We are not hiring a 1000 people every month, so we never need to drop our hiring standards. We don’t have annual headcount targets that require us to hire people one way or another just to make sure it looks good in the pink papers.
We are not cheap.
Since we don’t write case studies and whitepapers that tell you what you already know generically, our services aren’t overpriced. We aren’t cheap, but we aren’t expensive either. We will not take your business at “minus cost” like some of our competitors will do to keep busy all the engineers they hired to meet their headcount targets. Yet we are not like a listed Indian company that needs show its billing rates are raising continually to its shareholders.
Repeat Business is Good Business.
75% of our annual revenues come from repeat business. A half of our new customers are referrals. Over the last eight years, we have successfully created partnerships with our customers. Our average customer engagement period stands at 4 years as opposed to most companies seeming to lose their customer in the first year or after the first project.
Breadth of projects.
Having executed more than a hundred projects, the variety of industries, technologies and systems that we have built is quite vast. From e-learning CBTs to an e-Commerce stationery store in French. We would love to tell you all about them or ask us about your requirements and you might be surprised by our past experience.
Offshore is our specialty.
At Iqura, we have spent years in perfecting the art of building software offshore. 90% of our software revenues come from offshore software development – not 40% to 60% which is the industry average. If you need consultants onsite in your office for long durations – talk to our competitors. If you need a partner who will build your software offshore with short visits to your office when necessary – talk to us because it’s what we specialize in.
Its NOT just business.
It may sound clichéd, but we are not in it just for the money. Not always at least! We will take up a project because it’s challenging, because it might be fun, because we haven’t done it before or because it’s a cause we believe in.
Whatever the reasons behind it, rest assured we will put everything we have got to make sure it’s a success. Expect us to go the extra mile even if it’s a little extra cost.
