- All our systems restrict access to social networking sites or personal email accounts
- Authorization is required to access the system

Do you have satisfactory infrastructure to support my Website Designing projects?
Yes. We tune in to the most updated versions of the technology for all our website design and development work. Be rest assured.
Can I see some of your past work or better, can I get some References?
We operate on two work models.
- Direct Business
- Partner Clients
Direct Business – this model works on getting the requirement directly from the client. In this case you can see the website we built for them and also the reference number.
Partner Clients – in this case we partner with companies who get the requirement from direct clients and they outsource their work to us. Here we cannot show the website we made for them due to the NDA signed but can surely give references to you.
Can I remotely hire a Developer or Designer on Full-time or Part-time basis?
Sure you can. Please visit our Offshore Employee Hiring service page to know more
Can I get daily report of my Offshore Hired Web Designer or Developer?
Yes, we can provide you with daily updates upon request.
If you hire a remote employee with us, full-time or half-time then, at the end you will get hourly report of the work done by the resource.
But if you are working with us on a project basis then you will be regularly updated with the progress, but hourly or daily reports cannot be done here.
Is language an issue?
Since we are based in New Delhi which is the capital state of India the people here are well educated. So you will not face the language issue while working with us.
The designers and developers are professionally very well equipped but may not have the desired fluency in English to communicate over phone. For this reason we have them communicate with you over emails or skype. Also, the assigned Account Manager who is very fluent in English language can be a bridge if you have to communicate over phone.
Is there a Project Management Tool/Application to manage the Project?
We have our own Project Management Tool which can be used to manage the project very easily and at all the stages at a small additional amount.
It is advised to use a PM tool to monitor the developments at all phases and to share the feedback of your website designing work with us at all stages.
Do you have a quick Turnaround Time of the Offshore Outsourcing Projects?
The TAT usually depends on the requirements of the project. But if at all you have a deadline to meet then we can work out the timelines and get it done.
Are there any additional hidden costs?
No. We do not charge any set up fees from our clients. The only cost you bear is to hire an offshore web developer, either full-time, part-time or on hourly basis.
How can I pay if I choose your offshore outsourcing services?
ICO accepts payments made via bank cheque, wire transfer, and Paypal.
What if I do not like the Developer / Designer?
If you do not like the developer and/or designer assigned to your project, you just have to get in touch with the Account Manager assigned to you and he will take the necessary actions. This may also include replacing him/her at the earliest.
