SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- One Virtual Source (OVS), in collaboration with the Philippine Trade and Investment Center-Silicon Valley (PTIC-SV) presented to a crowd of entrepreneurs, startups and technology managers, discussing best practices in leveraging international software companies as a way to reduce costs and drive business growth.

"Think Global to Grow Your Business - Best Practices in Outsourcing" featured JR Calanoc and Nancy Hwang, CEO and COO of OVS, respectively. The pair were joined virtually by Arup Maity, CEO of BlastAsia, and Todd Musgrove, Managing Director of Mundomo. Both Maity and Musgrove spoke live from the Philippines to the San Francisco crowd via OVS' HD video chat room.

The discussion focused on what to look for in an outsourcing partner and how to best work with a partner once selected.

"While it may seem obvious, making sure that your partner's priorities align with yours is extremely important. Also, just because you are 'outsourcing' a project, does not mean that you are no longer responsible for its outcome. An active partnership is key to outsourcing success," said Maity.

"Face-to-face communications via platforms like OVS can help create a better product. We have found that the most successful outcomes are when companies provide feedback to their partners frequently and consistently," adds Musgrove.

The live demo of the OVS site showed how users can register, submit a bid, review a proposal, and schedule a video conferencing meeting with vendors.

"Belief in the capabilities of our IT and IT-enabled companies, such as in software development, creatives and design, has prompted One Virtual Source to identify the Philippines as its pilot country for the platform. We are proud to be part of this collaboration," said Philippine Trade Commissioner, Michael Alfred Ignacio.

One Virtual Source CEO, JR Calanoc said, "The OVS team believes the high standards of our vendors and the features of our platform will drive the quality of work performed for our customers. Our cloud-based marketplace and project workspace makes it simple for businesses to connect and collaborate."
