It can be really hard for a company to decide whether to develop a new website or mobile app in-house or to outsource the job entirely. The obvious pros and cons of both strategies are vast, and options are seemingly limitless these days. Most people reading this blog can relate to the annoyance of being inundated with development related spam messages, offering cheap developers from overseas, so much so that the expectations of quality of such endeavors tend to be pretty low. On the flipside of this, building an in-house team, or even finding a local developer in the West can be a timesuck that any CEO or Founder can simply not afford. Time is money, and it’s becoming more and more scarce these days in the tech world right?
BuildaTeam.io was created to alleviate these exact problems. By blending the benefits of outsourcing with the benefits of “insourcing” we have created a solution that truly solves these woes by incorporating the best of both worlds. At Buildateam, we utilize new communication technologies, the global economy and some of the best development talent on earth to offer unparalleled quality, the efficiency that you’d expect with an in-house team and the incredible cost savings of outsourcing mobile / web / e-commerce design development projects overseas.
Even still, the number one question we get asked is why should people outsource their development projects…so we thought we’d write a post with our favorite answers to that question.
1) No more communication barriers…
For years, outsourcing your website and/or mobile application development projects almost guaranteed that you’d have to deal with a breakdown in communication at some point. Whether it’d be a standard 15-hour delay in responses from your Indian Freelance Developers, or an agency with way too many clients to respond quickly, it doesn’t matter. Communication is key in any relationship and that’s why we’ve been focused on improving communication with our clients since day one through optimizing the structure of our company. BuildaTeam.io alleviates this issue by assigning a project manager to each project who is tasked with maintaining 24/7 direct access to the client. Over the past three years, we have averaged a 1.7 hour response time to all emails and that’s something we’re insanely proud of!
2) No more language barriers…
Along with the difficulties in getting quick responses from outsourced developers, and in the same vein of improving communications, several of our clients have raved about how happy they are that the people they’re dealing with are Native English speakers. We pride ourselves in the fact that we create jobs for freelancers in remote parts of the world, and we’re all about being diversified but we know that clients want speed and efficiency from our development teams. Because of this, we employ full-time, dedicated U.S based project managers to each client project. This ensures that nothing is misinterpreted and several emails are not needed to explain simple concepts. Without the language barriers that once debilitated the outsourced development industry, our clients’ don’t have to worry about issues like that arising…their testimonials speak for themselves.
3) Cost savings
This is a bit of a “no-brainer” because everyone looks to outsource in order to cut costs of developing everything from an MVP to a mobile app. The unique ability to hire highly skilled people at a rate that is much more affordable than in your local area is the driving force behind the growth in companies like Buildateam and others.
4) The quality of work has greatly improved.
For many years, outsourcing your web and mobile application development meant skimping on quality in order to get something built cheaper. However, this has most certainly changed. The sheer amount of learning resources on the internet, through online courses like Coursera, or incredible development classes offered by companies like General Assembly have enabled people around the world to master the quality of work we expect from Western developers. On top of this, BuildaTeam.io ensures it’s developers are the highest quality in the world by passing all freelancers through a stringent, 4 step vetting process. This enables our clients to get access to only the best in the business, increasing the quality of their projects to new levels.
