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.
- 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 A SAMPLE APPROACH TO COMMUNICATION
Our approach to collaboration:
Ensure security of outsourcing
- Sign an NDA with a vendor to guarantee the confidentiality of your business-sensitive information and intellectual property rights over the project deliverables.
- Check that a vendor has relevant security measures in place to protect your data (such as IDS/IPS, DLP, SIEM, and others).
Note: Being ISO 27001-certified, we ensure the security of the data entrusted to us by our customers.
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.
Outsourcing an entire team of experts from a reliable vendor is significantly cheaper than hiring, onboarding, and training your in-house developers.
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.
