Let's say you are the owner of a startup or business that needs IT development services. There are quite a number of outsourcing companies on the market. But how do you define their quality? We relieve you of headaches and share points that are worth considering when working with an outsourcing company.
You know a company doing a great job, if:
They focus on understanding your business needs Software development is not only about writing the code itself. They need to deeply understand your business needs and ask a lot of questions at the beginning of the partnership. Their support from the business side may help save time for product development and remove unnecessary features
They communicate transparently Any outsourced team you work with should communicate with you transparently. Project management tools, collaboration tools, and proper communication skills are key to good project coordination and great results, in all key aspects: cost, time, and quality. And they should be honest about the seniority level of their resources but also about the project itself – including any possible problems or delays.
They have the right resources If you are working with a team, ensure that they have an in-house team working for you. Some projects may require senior-level team members and not all companies are equipped to handle complex projects.
They are time efficient
A good outsourced team should be able to deliver great results very efficiently. You should also have a realistic deadline set in advance.
And the most important thing is the fact that you need to be closely involved in the process too. Analyze and track their work. However, there are cases when there is not enough time or expertise to properly evaluate the work of an outsourcing company.
One of the commonly used practices is to ask a third-party company to audit the work. IT audit is an opportunity to get an unbiased assessment of your company’s IT management system, to understand how IT infrastructure and services should be developed, and also to determine the points and methods of their most effective application. We have our solution architect, who has more than 10 years of experience, to audit the work and identify weaknesses in the development process.
