These guys (http://www.finsoftusa.com/) get straight to the point.
View the "Competitive Advantages" section:

"Through a hybrid onsite-offshore service delivery model, comprehensive
suite of tools, and experienced technical professionals, Finsoft delivers
exceptional value and world-class quality solutions to our clients. In
those cases where this model is most optimal, dedicated on-site project
management teams work with the customer to identify business and technical
requirements in the implementation of new solutions, while our off-site
teams continue to support these projects from a software development,
maintenance and business operations standpoint. Finsoft's customers,
large and small, realize the benefits of this model both in terms of
price and in terms of productivity.

"Finsoft's ``24x7 workday'' enables our customers to dramatically reduce
the time and costs required to develop, upgrade and maintain technology
and service it. Finsoft eliminates traditional time constraints and
provides cost effective solutions that are supported by the ``24X7 workday''
model facilitated by our Offshore Development Centers (ODC) in Hydrebad, India."
