Fields of Activities

UCI is specialized in software development and related services. Our main target is to be among the major software development firms and major outsourcing partner for companies all over the world. UCI has been founded to be a software development and systems integration company.

Within this context, we are currently working as “software development” departments of the other companies who want to focus on their primary activities and they leave software development parts to UCI. Under different business models, the idea works just perfect. 

Having software development department outsourced has of course advantages. First advantage is that companies who outsource their software development activities can focus more on their primary activities, rather than allocating some other resources (time, people and hardware). Second, they need to invest in software development, have to develop software development culture in the company. In most cases, software development efforts start with specific needs of organizations. At the end of these efforts, even if the project is successful, time of software development team gets underutilized – unless the product is going to be published and made available for public. Therefore, only a team for support and modifications are required. The project may go unfeasible. For some several other cases, the project does not succeed. Having your software outsourcing work is cheaper, easier, requires less investment than you may think and worries for the future of software development team will be reduced. It’s a win-win situation, indeed.
