As our expanding global marketplace continues to create competition for skilled resources and pressures for companies to do more with less, it is no wonder why IT executives are turning to reliable outsourcing partners for a competitive advantage. Centric’s Outsourcing solutions drive higher levels of performance, eliminate worry regarding resource continuity and lower IT costs.
Many firms offer outsourcing services, but very few do the “right thing” for clients every time. Our Application Outsourcing offering merges seasoned professionals and management best practices to create a flexible, scalable and global delivery model.
We combine client-site, onshore and offshore delivery capabilities to drive true business value. Whether we’re supporting new business strategies or enhancing legacy applications, our clients can have confidence that their critical business applications are in good hands.

Outsourcing Management / Maintenance Needs
IT executives may find themselves in a situation where the knowledge of a particular business application is retained by a single resource, creating a single point of failure in terms of organizational succession planning. Executives may also find that a bulk of application development is focused on supporting business applications that aren’t necessarily creating a competitive advantage for the company.
Centric’s outsourcing solutions can help address these concerns while reducing the total cost of ownership in supporting these core business applications.
We achieve this by providing the following:
