Project Outsourcing

In the past few years, many PICK users have found themselves in a critical situation. Companies are demanding more from their PICK systems, yet the number of experienced PICK professionals is declining in today’s job market. Consequently, companies are placing heavy burdens on their existing programming staff, which is often inadequate to handle internal PICK programming demands. The resulting backlog of programming projects means that mission critical applications are delayed for months or even years.

PICK Programmer’s Shop offers a solution to the employee staffing issue through project and program outsourcing. By using our experienced programmers and our own hardware resources, PPS is able to relieve the programming burden and backlog, thus allowing an organization to focus on running its business. In addition, outsourcing allows a company to contain costs, save time, improve efficiency and insure overall quality in their information system operations.

Project outsourcing is flexible and can be managed in a way that is most beneficial to our clients. We work closely with end users, analysts, programmers and management to quickly develop required applications. Most of the actual development can be completed in our offices using our own hardware, thus limiting the need for a company to support additional personnel and resources. Once a project is completed, PPS transfers the knowledge necessary to maintain the applications to the existing staff. Or, if a client chooses, PPS will maintain the project on a very cost- effective basis.
