Whether one should hire an app development company, offshore or maintain an in-house app development team has been a topic of discussion for quite some time now, each business and organization has maintained their preferences when it comes to hiring an app developer. Earlier keeping an in-house app development team or even hiring a developer from within your own country was the only feasible thing to do but nowadays the trend of outsourcing the app development work is on the rise, we see a lot of US-based companies giving their work to offshore companies. I support offshore app development; don’t take my word just yet, allow me to explain why I think so.
Why hire an offshore app development company: hiring an outside organization will allow you to get access to a team of experts which otherwise would have been very costly, had you maintained an in-house app development team. So obviously hiring an offshore company is a benefit from an economic standpoint, more specifically if you are a company that devotes very little of its business to the app then keeping a dedicated development department can be challenging. With the glaring benefits in the open, it is only natural that we will witness fierce competition in the offshore app development market, it can be challenging to find the best developer when each one promises to deliver the best.
1] Developer’s profile: it is a good idea to check on the background of the company because if you are hiring someone to do something as crucial as developing an app, it becomes paramount to check on the company’s past performance and the overall image, especially if it is an offshore company, with the advancement in the search engine finding out the true picture won’t be a difficulty.
2] Leadership: when you hire a company, you hire their workforce, goes without saying, and it goes without saying this as well that you have to look at the team and its project manager as well; do they have the capability to finish your project within the time frame.
3] Sectors catered: a company with a diverse portfolio is always better than companies with a very narrow range of sectors served. Think Future Technologies Pvt. Ltd. is one such company that has handled clients from multiple sectors, small and big. Your choice should be based on how diversified their client list is. Have they served only conglomerates, or do they also have startups in their portfolio? Working around these questions can help you select the right company.
4] Take a while: don’t rush into choosing the first option you get, give it proper time, work out the pros and cons of each company that you have shortlisted. A good practice is, start planning the process from an early stage so that you have enough time on your hands to evaluate your options and choose the right developer for your brand.
1]Economical advantage: hiring an offshore company will not help in terms of maintaining a small-sized workforce but also the exchange rate benefits which you can enjoy; following the practice of many American companies where they hire developers from India, henceforth saving a lot of many in exchange rates.
2] Higher Quality: hiring developers from tech-leading nations can be very helpful if you do not have such leading know-how available in your country, so offshore hiring is a good option then.
Changes in technology and the way we work have also impacted the way we hire, as is evident by the hiring practices for app development followed by many nations, using the above-mentioned tips can help you in choosing the right option for your company.
