1 – REDUCE COSTS IN SALARIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE
This can be one of the main concerns to take into account when deciding to contract an outsourced team instead of working with one of your own.
For most companies , this is argument number 1.
In addition to the obvious reduction in costs for offices and equipment, salaries greatly affect your budget. Even when working with the same level of qualified professionals, there are significant differences in overall wages when development is outsourced. On average, salaries will cost the company 50% less when outsourced.
2 – FACILITATE RECRUITMENT BY DELEGATING
Recruitment can be a huge brake for your business development. It takes time and energy to find the best people out there. You also have to have the right HR department in place, all while offering the right employee packages.
Outsourcing almost completely eliminates this problem while providing you with the best professionals on the market.
3- INNOVATION AND QUALITY
Innovation and quality are the main concerns of companies that want to outsource development.
Depending on your needs, you can get highly qualified professionals following the highest standards in software development.
If you have to build your own team with the same level of quality, you will either have to contract very expensive resources (which may not be available), or invest in training that could last for many years. Once again, this is time, money and energy that could be saved by outsourcing.
At Afocus, we hire and train young professionals hungry to learn the best international standard and practices on the latest technologies.
4 – STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR BUSINESS
Having to deal with your IT department imposes considerable operational cost when it comes to an area that is not your core business.
If your IT department is not sufficiently skilled in a given technology or if it does not have the additional resources required, your options for determining how to implement a new feature will be limited.
In this case, chances are that you will end up with a non-optimal solution, that will either be costly or badly engineered.
5 – NO NEW INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIRED
A huge advantage of hiring a development company external to your business is that you don’t need to create and manage a development team.
A project can take off faster if you don’t need to worry about the infrastructure and configuration of your own development center.
6 – THE SCALING OF THE IT TEAM
Although this term mainly refers to scaling of the physical infrastructure, it is also an important factor introduced by external development.
Your business may not need the same resources all the time.
There may be a phase of your products and services that require a greater number of resources, and you may reach a level of maturity that makes it unnecessary to continue with the same level of highly qualified professionals.
At this point, you can decide to reduce the team or change roles and positions to a more operational level. This level of resource management can be extremely complex when it comes to hiring staff directly, rather than delegating it all to your external development center.
7 – CONTROL OF ACTIVITIES
The more a company internalizes activities, the higher the risk of dispersion and the risks of losing its competitive advantage in the core business.
For this reason, outsourcing the development of mobile application projects helps, on the one hand, to lighten the workload that a business can have, on the other hand, it allows the business to focus on its core business, increasing its efficiency and productivity.
8 – EXPERTISE AND QUALITY
With the outsourcing of mobile and web application projects, your company relies on professionals whose main activity is the creation of web and mobile apps.
Thus, your company is guaranteed to obtain a quality product in a simple, fast and cost-effective way, allowing you to gain an advantage over your competitors. That time and money saved by outsourcing to professionals in mobile and web development can be reallocated to what you do best: your core business.
