Electronic means of communication have changed the world. The option of remote cooperation in present-day business is one of the main cost-cutting strategies available to us. Electronic means of communication erase distance, save time when resolving a wide range of issues, and contribute to the development of constructive dialogue. Thus, projects can be completed faster and at a lower cost. This new form of communication does away with time-wasting face-to-face appointments on insignificant issues.
EDISON receives dozens of queries every day, and our project managers understand the need for a face-to-face meeting following our initial agreement on key aspects of cooperation with the potential client. As a rule, this happens only after a requirements specification has been developed and the paid design stage has been completed. After this, we ask our client to appoint a manager from their own company to be personally responsible for all dimensions of the project. It is also advisable to appoint a technical specialist, who will work as part of our team and assimilate any accumulated knowledge.
When cooperating remotely the need for a business trip may arise, for example, when deploying the final release of a product. However, we do try to keep the number of business trips to a minimum and conduct all of our business remotely with a significant portion of our clients.
EDISON’s offices work to a strict and organised schedule: our teams are online throughout the working day and always answer electronic messages in a prompt manner. If an engineer, for reasons beyond his control, cannot offer a full and satisfactory answer immediately, he will inform the inquirer about the reason for any delay and set a time when he will be able to provide the required information.
The remote cooperation model described above helps reduce distance, economise on resources and successfully bring interesting ideas to fruition.
