Why Outfarm for agile suppliers?
A project management solution that includes functionality important to an agile supplier helps to minimizes the time spent on managing the project. Now you can spend your time developing software for your clients.
Repetition is boring
Responding to proposals normally means repeatedly updating and sending out spreadsheet followed by yet another call in order to justify the estimates for the work contained in the proposal. Outfarm’s project management solution let’s you have conversation about any proposal item using collaborative means, this also means you keep a log of what was said for every item during the proposal stage. Furthermore you can break down the proposal requirements into smaller tasks and estimate the duration of these tasks. Upon acceptance of a proposal, all this information can be imported into the project plan and doesn’t need to be filled in into yet another spreadsheet or project plan and can be reused for project planning.
One account, many projects, many clients
Even though your clients generally have stored their projects in their own account, you have access to all client projects from your own account. Say goodbye to many different logins for all the different issue tracking services used by your clients. The built-in project portfolio functionality enables you to keep track of all the projects you are involved in and all the communication that goes with these projects..
Scope creep is endemic
It happens to every project, a month down the line another requirement comes up and gets added to the project, yet another change request. And some requirements quietly creep in and expand the scope. But that is not a problem with Outfarm, because when the project was awarded to you, a baseline of what was part of the proposal is automatically created and any changes to the baseline will require your sign off.
Practice what you preach: Agile Outsourcing
While we develop our project management solution, we always use the working code from the last iteration to manage the project through the next iteration. So we can make sure that the current project management solution is as good and simple as it gets to manage an agile outsourced project. Outfarm’s solution is unique because it supports the whole life cycle of such a project.
