How to Outsource Software Development Safely and Efficiently?

Test a vendor’s expertise in practice

You can launch a small pilot project or request a proof of concept (PoC) to get an objective understanding of a vendor’s competencies.

Control outcomes

  • Sign a service level agreement (SLA) with a vendor that outlines expected timelines, deliverables, quality requirements, and responsibilities for project-related risks.
  • Decide on a KPI system to monitor the project’s health without being over-involved in the process. Here, you can find other KPIs

  • Check that a vendor has relevant security measures in place to protect your data (such as IDS/IPS, DLP, SIEM, and others).

Benefits of Outsourced vs. In-House Development

Software quality increase

By outsourcing to IT professionals experienced in your target industry, you gain easy access to their expertise and best practices, ensuring the timely delivery of high-quality software.

Reduced costs

Outsourcing an entire team of experts from a reliable vendor is significantly cheaper than hiring, onboarding, and training your in-house developers.

High scalability

You can quickly upscale and downscale an outsourced development team to meet your specific project needs and only pay for the resources you truly need.

The practice that powers most businesses

According to Deloitte, 70% of companies outsource software development for cost reduction.
