Visitors: 173

Hiring programmers from offshore web development companies is in vogue, but there are you need to be aware of some facts about the services you will get, in order to make the outsourcing process profitable and fruitful for your business.

IT technology is evolving at a rapid rate, and it is practically impossible for small or midsized firms to maintain or train developers with all the necessary skills. In order to save costs, you, as a small or midsized firm are faced with the option of making a long-term investment in software infrastructure and skills, or outsource your project to an offshore development team.

Outsourcing provides the obvious cost benefits, and it also saves you the hassles of upgrading your staff every few months, or employing new resources for every new project. But outsourcing your work to the cheapest offshore development company will not necessarily make your life easier. You must look for a dependable company that has a good track record with developing and delivering projects similar to yours. When you look for an offshore web development company, make sure that they actually provide the services and facilities they promise.

Every decent offshore development company will let you take part in the recruitment process. They should vet at least three candidates for every position, and you should have the choice to choose the best from the three options. Don’t trust a company that takes more than 3-4 weeks to get the right candidates for youy project (unless it’s a huge project);good companies have reserve resources and can get a team ready in little time—that’s the reason they are there.

The offshore team works for you, are paid by you, and take directions from you. Make sure that the contract states that the team works exclusively on your projects. and not on several projects at a time. You will need to communicate with the development team, and it is essential that they speak good enough English to understand your instructions and explain their ideas.

The contract should also clearly spell out that the web development company providing you’re the developers will provide them all the technical assistance they need, and also set up the necessary infrastructure for the team. The development team should send you daily, weekly or month project reports, and you should be able to talk to them any time you want, through pre-established communication systems.

Also, consider the possibility that you project may get completed before time, and in that case you should have the option to discontinue using the services of the offshore web development company. There is a possibility that your project requirement may fluctuate with changing technology and business environment, especially if it’s a long-term project. Before you select your outsourcing partner, make sure that they are willing and capable of providing developers with different skill-sets.

Outsourcing your project requirements by hiring developers who work for low rates at an offshore development center can help you cut down on the overheads and save a lot of money, but to make it possible you need to choose a reliable and capable web development company as your partner. Invest some time in researching the background of the company and how it has performed on other projects; this will help you save a lot of hassles and time in future.
