Hengtian surpasses other offshore outsourcing companies in the following ways:

Predictable Delivery and Effective Cost Management

Hengtian's co-sourcing model surpasses the traditional outsourcing model in various ways. With co-sourcing, we provide a team of dedicated employees and specialized resources to ensure long-term results for our clients. We use a team structure that corresponds to that of the client, from senior managers to engineers, in order to provide transparent and efficient communication.

Furthermore, our software Quality Assurance (QA) team applies proven methodologies and constantly works to ensure that our products and services, people, and process are of the best quality.

Built in collaboration with Zhejiang University, our human resources model has proven successful in expanding both the bandwidth and skill sets of our teams, and is the key to ensuring that our clients receive the highest quality service.

Technology Research Lab Capability

One of Hengtian's differentiators is that we help our clients to access top research labs at Zhejiang University.
