Although they are based in India, Mastek have off-shored some parts of their business. Structuring the business in this way means it is essential that products are delivered on time and according to customer requirements. To do this, the Agile methodology in working directly with the customer or business at each stage. This has strengthened Mastek’s customer relationships, as their clients are actively involved in developing the products and able to decide if alterations are needed.
