Quote: “In 2001, we opened an offshore company called Sebiz Infotech, which is based in Northern India-that was primarily where we saw a shift happening in terms of outsourcing and offshoring-and we said, ‘We’ll see if this thing is actually going to work out for us.’ So we took about a year and said we were going to shift some resources over there, hire some people and train them in the way we do development on this side of the pond and see if this actually works.”
