Project Management

A project will be as successful as the project manager is committed to be. Our project managers are experienced specialists that have conducted more than 20 projects each, and they are in position to create realistic plans for software development (estimation of effort and time), and to execute the plan with the right output in terms of productivity and quality.

  • Training plan

Project Design

  • Prepare the system structure
  • Describe scope of data and procedure interactions
  • Develop and explain a scheme for the technical design and software requirements
  • Formulate data structures
  • Complete the technical software design document
  • Collect change requirements

Project Development

  • Prepare the environment for the software development methodology
  • Prepare the development procedures and conventions including configuration Management and source code control
  • Set up the database environment
  • Produce Test Data and system documents
  • Do the clear code, method level and inline software documentation
  • Do unit testing
  • If necessary, revisit the technical software design document

Project Testing

  • Carry out Integration Tests
  • Execute System Tests
  • Perform benchmark and load tests
  • Put acceptance tests into effect
  • Prepare training deliverable, user deliverable and implementation deliverable
  • Gather metrics on requirements and frequency of change


  • Fix the production system
  • Train users
  • Take care of critical situations, including insertion of members of the development team at the client site, if necessary

Project Communication

At Nearshore-Romania, development processes are project-oriented, meaning we keep a close interaction with our customers and key communication between people involved in the project.

Our reliable working protocol and suitable communication methodology guarantees:

  • prompt communication in order to minimize communication gaps
  • significant communication – understanding the most important necessities of the customer and searching for an effective time solution
  • active communication which requires considering some demands such as:
    • regular updates of the product and information of the customer upon the status of the project
    • establishment of a communication instrument in order to document and follow up the problems appeared on both sides and solve them in due time
    • determination of possible ways to improve quality and efficiency and to facilitate the product usage

Software Development Methodologies


Years of applying SCRUM have led to the conclusion that it is a proven solution to:

  • gain fine control on particular activities such as business modeling, design, and architecture
  • release some benefits earlier as the product is still being developed
  • enjoy speed-to-market
  • integrate testing throughout the lifecycle, enabling regular inspection and adjustments
  • involve the user in the development process which provides excellent visibility for key stakeholders
  • manage risks, making it easy to respond to change
  • control costs
  • create much better business engagement and customer satisfaction
  • allow agile development requirements to emerge and evolve

Prince 2

Projects IN Controlled Environments is a structured method for effective project management consisting of processes and components such as:

  • a finite and defined lifespan
  • defined and measurable business products
  • a corresponding set of activities to achieve the business products
  • a defined amount of resources
  • an organization structure, with defined responsibilities, to manage the project
