Our Model

The business model of Strypes is something we take utmost pride in because it's that special something that makes us different. It is called near-surance, a term we coined ourselves in order to describe our way of working for what it truly is, a combination between the benefits of nearshoring and quality assurance by having professionals onsite at the customer location - local presence.

In case you’re not familiar, nearshoring is the practice of transferring a business operation or IT process to a nearby country, especially in preference to a more distant one. This is the basic and not so exciting version. In order to understand the feelings and passion that serve as the basis for our cooperation model, watch our colleague Erwin Bierhoff talk about the near-surance model.

What is the Strypes Nearsurance model?

Erwin Bierhoff

Near-surance is a combination of working agile/scrum combined with local presence by top field professionals and a perfect communication. We inquire about the client's specific needs and challenges, assess the specifications and assemble the right team for the project. The ultimate goal is to unburden the client and build a long-lasting partnership.

We have different cooperation models to match various needs.
