Wilmington, DE, April 12, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The recently concluded France-India IT Summit 2013 organised by NASSCOM (India's premier trade body for the software industry) held in New Delhi, India last week demonstrated one thing clearly enough. Two things actually. One, France is planning to take to outsourcing in a bigger way than it presently does. And, two, for the hundreds of small and medium firms across France, the VirtualEmployee.com model is absolutely tailor-made.
While the heavyweights of the governments of both countries interacted with each other via networking sessions and workshops, also in attendance were a host of French companies like Capgemini, Dassault Systems, Atos who already have a considerable presence in India. The French government is now keen that Indian businesses come and invest in France and give a boost to their flagging economy. On the other hand, the Indian government is equally keen that French companies come and invest in India since the government is promoting FDI in a big way.
The VirtualEmployee.com model ideally suited to meet the outsourcing requirements of French businesses, particularly the SMEs. Its business model is unique in the sense that it immediately opens doors for all those SMEs who till recently were unable to offshore outsource like the larger MNCs due to all sorts of constraints. Since VirtualEmployee.com specializes in equipping each client with their own dedicated employee who works exclusively for them in the same manner as a local or an in-house employee. That's not all. This remote employee doesn't work from home but from the carefully supervised office of VirtualEmployee.com, where a full staff of managers and technical experts are always present to supervise, help with and troubleshoot any work-related issue. This remote office, this, effectively becomes an extension of the client's own local office, so much so that the client can at any time pay a visit to his or her virtual employee, work with them, train them, etc. The vendor's staff are all engaged in serving the client and creating an extremely conducive work environment, with special emphasis on data security and protection of a client's intellectual property.
At the moment, about 20 percent of all IT work in France gets outsourced to India. The IT industry is estimated at approximately US$ 5 billion and at present, almost US$ 1 billion worth of IT processes are being outsourced to India - the IT outsourcing hub of the world.
VirtualEmployee.com has established itself as a leader in SME outsourcing and, alongwith its close association with the Government of India, it is perfectly poised to usher in a new wave of outsourcing across France in its vast SME segment.
