Communication Model

Model 1:
In this model we have a Project Coordinator (PC) onsite who keeps in constant touch with the client. PC attends client meetings; gathers requirements or change requests and forwards the same to offshore development team. PC also coordinates with the offshore development for successful completion of the project. 
Model 2:
In this model offshore Project Manager (PM) acts as the single point contact for the client. He keeps regular updates with client through chat, mail and VOIP. PM interacts with the client to gather requirements, change request etc and implements the same in the project. The project status is directly updated to the client through the offshore project manager.

Quality Assurance
Quality Assurance has been given a formal shape at the Atlantic Crossing ADC by Atlantic Crossing's SQA Department (SQAD) with the following commitment: 

  • Delivering highest quality products and services to customers, ensuring total customer satisfaction.

  • Continuously improve quality processes.

Projects are monitored on a daily basis. The Quality testing is based on documented standards, which are in the form of checklists.
Peer reviews are conducted by SQAD personnel not working on the project for unbiased quality checks on the project.
Rigorous quality checks are performed throughout the life cycle of the project prior to customer delivery:

  • Quality Assurance Check lists are utilized

  • Discrepancies are reported to Project Manager responsible for the project

  • Projects with discrepancies re-enter project lifecycle phases

  • Evaluation/investigation of discrepancies to determine root cause and next steps

Quality control Checklists are prepared based on the Atlantic Crossing's process standards and Client's specific requirements.

Network Security:
Atlantic Crossing employs basic technologies such as firewalls and antivirus software. Atlantic Crossing also uses a number of advanced technologies such as Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), encryption methodologies, authentication and access controls etc.
