Maybe I should first answer the question why this blog’s domain is pimteam.net – but I guess you have figured it out yourself. I used this domain to host PIM Team company’s site on it.Why there is no more PIM Team or at least not for the moment could be long and not so interesting to explain. In short it was something which worked fine, but I never put the energy to make it grow, so I decided to freeze it for long time.
PIM (Positron Ideas Manufacturing) Team was a small software outsourcing company (or it is better to say just a team of programmers and designers) and was offering mostly low cost services. Pretty boring as you can see.
What could be more interesting for you, besides that it earned me a living for few years, is the fact that PIM was a live experiment of the Virtual Company idea. The Virtual Company concept is nothing new, but unfortunately there are few who really tried and succeeded to get it working. This concept is very crucial for everything in this blog, so I strongly recommend you to read the articles about virtual company pillars here. You may or may not want to start a virtual company yourself, but in both cases you must use the concepts involved if you want to leverage your business or self employment career on modern technologies and outsourcing.
So Is Outsourcing Really That Important?
One thing that most people seem to miss is that outsourcing is not just hiring a programmer thru Elance or other site and definitely not hunting for the lowest possible fare. Outsourcing is a business concept which can be applied to almost every business inside or outside of the technology market.
Essentially this is all you may want to know about PIM Team right now. You will not find too much other info about PIM on this blog, so don’t worry, there will be no “we, we, we” talk here.
