Benefits of Outsourcing Software Development

If you are not familiar with the term, outsourcing is a business practice in which a company will hire an external party to perform or support services that are typically allocated to in-house employees. Outsourcing is predicted to be in high demand in the coming years as it allows companies to deliver a great product or service more quickly and at a reduced cost. Software development in particular is becoming increasingly outsourced due to its many advantages, including: 

Flexibility

When outsourcing developers, you can employ them as and when needed. This means, once a project is complete, there is no pressure to keep the developers on the payroll. Also, since you won’t be spending time recruiting, hiring, or training employees, you and your staff can focus on other tasks such as sales, marketing, and business development.

Cost Savings

Recruiting an experienced software development company, will not only help you manage development fees, but will also eliminate your current IT recruiting budget. Remember, outsourcing will cost considerably less than offering someone a salary. At Cyber, we can offer you drastically reduced costs compared to in-house development – contact us now for a quote. 

Time Saving

The digital environment is becoming increasingly competitive, leaving little room for error and making it essential to make products and services available quickly. Therefore, outsourcing to a dedicated software development team with experience to deliver your product within the deadlines is much more practical than spending time looking for new developers and then hiring and training them to suit your project needs.

Access to Talent

It is likely that your internal team will not have the right experience to deliver the required solution at a high quality. Whereas outsourced professionals are already qualified and will support your projects with additional knowledge and expertise in order to accomplish the task. This allows your company to provide a quality, tested software product to your intended users quicker and at a higher quality. 

Access to Technology and Knowledge

Many projects require technology that your company may not have access to, or perhaps your employees don’t have the complex skillsets or know-how required to use them. External providers however will have access to an abundance of software and will have a proven track record in using and providing them to companies. In order to provide your company with cutting-edge solutions in the latest technologies without you having the master them yourselves. For instance, at Cyber, we have a high technology skillset that helps us solve problems, increase efficiency and improve communication within your company. 

Confidentiality

If you are worried about the data that the outsourcing company will have access to, you’ll be happy to hear that third-party developers often provide better security of confidential data than the company’s own staff.  When outsourcing services, confidentiality and protection of information are mandatory, and are essentially guaranteed by non-disclosure agreements.

Teamwork

With an outsourced development company, you don’t need to worry about assembling a team, assigning responsibilities or organising the work process as this is all provided for you. An external team will work as your partner at all stages of a project. For instance, our Agile approach methodology allows us to divide tasks into short phases of work which are frequently reassessed and adapted with your company’s needs in mind.
