What issues should I expect when outsourcing vectorization services to India?
This used to be a big concern a few years ago. In fact, outsourcing vectorization services to India was then just an emerging trend. Now it is common to have customers who are familiar with the process and do not need an introduction.
When we set up this business in 2002, some major issues had to be considered. For example, it was not rare for a customer to experience misunderstandings because of the differences in culture and communication. Back then there were banking issues and infrastructure weaknesses.
Now India has progressed in many areas and working with an Indian vendor can be similar to working with a local company. In fact, since Indian companies now have experience working with customers from around the globe, they are able to service customers better than many western counterparts.
The key to success is to find the right vendor with a good track record. Beware; there are many Indian companies just starting that are not much more than words.

Why should I trust O2I for outsourcing my vectorization services?
Digital words often lack meaning. Outsourcing agreements made without even knowing whom you are dealing with can be risky. We have discovered this the hard way.
Over the past several years, Outsource2india has pioneered ways to work at a distance that build trust. We structure payment and deliverables in a way that reduces the risk for both parties especially before a solid commercial relationship is established.
This long distance model means that trust is earned slowly and if the relationship is not working it can be terminated quickly.
What makes you different from other companies?
Perhaps the secret to our success is that we try to understand and communicate with our customers. In addition, we are innovative in our networked business model.
What is O2I’s networked business model?
We do about 50% of our work in-house and the other 50% is completed together with our exclusive partners who specialize in areas of outsourcing. O2I has domain experts with experience in each of these specializations. These domain experts communicate with our customers; get the project going; and manage their project teams to make sure the work is being completed properly.
For example if you have a large vectorization project we may do it 100% in-house but if it also requires AuotCAD experience then our domain expert may work in collaboration with another vendor to complete your project. In this manner, we often provide turnkey solutions for our customers by combining our capabilities with other subject matter experts.
In addition to our network of partners, our company is divided into divisions that focus on specific areas. For example, we have a department that specializes in content development and desktop publishing. Therefore, if you have project that requires vectorizing a logo we can have it done through our DTP division.
What is the track record of Outsource2india?
This is the key question that we ask ourselves when we hire someone and it is a key question when looking for an Indian vendor.
O2I has a resume that we can send you but briefly - O2I was born at the start of the outsourcing phenomenon in 2002 and we were the pioneers of outsourcing in India.
