We understand not everyone is comfortable with the idea of bringing in an outside company to work on important projects. We are happy to address these concerns. Here are some common questions people ask. If there is anything thing else you need to ask about, please feel free to call us any time at 978-487-1210.
Isn't an outside design firm going to be more expensive than using our own in-house staff?
Since we only charge for time spent working productively on your project, our billable hours are all productive hours. Average in your own employees' non-productive time over the course of a year, and you'll see where the savings come from. With Odic, you'll have a virtual engineering team available year-round that only affects your budget when you have actual work.
Won't someone from the outside take a long time to come up to speed?
Actually, it doesn't. We come up to speed very quickly. We've been put into so many different situations, we know what questions to ask and where to look for answers. You can expect us to contribute to your project from the day we start.
How can I guarantee Odic will work openly with us, and share with us what they have learned?
Odic acknowledges that everything we do is yours — after all, you are paying for it. We’re proud of the work we do, so we’re more than happy to share every bit of detail you need. And frankly, we want your repeat business. Our success depends on your satisfaction and trust.
If I bring in Odic, won't they leave with key knowledge of the project that we may need down the road?
We're not going anywhere. Long after our work on your project is complete, our staff of full-time engineers will be here when you need support, letting you leverage any knowledge we gained while working together.
I’m worried about letting another company in on our proprietary technologies or product secrets.
We're happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement with you before we even discuss your project. More importantly, we’re an ethical company, and we respect what is yours and what needs to be kept quiet. We’d be out of business very quickly if we didn't keep our clients’ proprietary information to ourselves.
