But, aware of the advantages, more and more of those are overcoming their inhibitions and are now willing to delegate certain responsibilities to other companies possessing the necessary skills and expertise.
  • This article will help you dispel any doubts and show you how to choose the proper IT outsourcing company for your business.

impltech will find the right developers for you to cover your personal requirements.

FIND THE RIGHT MATCH

The delegation of tasks to IT outsourcing company offers many advantages and is a widespread practice in small and medium-sized businesses as well as big corporations.

According to last year’s study by Eset, about a half of the 522 interviewed businesses supported the outsourcing of their IT.

The delegation of separate sub-projects or IT as a whole to an outsourcing company saves time and costs in a constantly changing environment.
In fact, an IT outsourcing company can usually handle all the IT tasks, ranging from product discovery to mobile app development services, which allows you to concentrate on your core business processes.

Choosing a proper business partner is daunting, since there’s no shortage of outsorcing companies out there, so we’ll guide you through the most important steps to choosing a reliable IT outsourcing company.

Objective definition

Everybody knows from the time of Steve Jobs and Apple that it begins with the customer and goes back to technology.
You know your customers and understand their needs and challenges. Hence, clear technological objectives can be defined and process description and operational requirements can be elaborated. A proper IT outsourcing company possessing the necessary experience and knowhow will help you scope the development you require and suggest optimal technological ways of achieving your goals.

Experience and references

Nobody wants to be treated by a doctor, who has never done it before. It's all the same with outsourcing.
The company should ideally have the understanding of your industry, possess technology expertise and experience developing similar products to the one you’re looking to build. References and reviews can be the first evidence of this understanding by a particular IT outsourcing company. For big and complex projects, it is even more crucial to learn as much as you can about the company you are outsourcing to, and read through their case studies, which showcase how they deal with problems and tackle challenges.

Communication

An IT outsourcing company shouldn't flood you with buzz-words only to show you how professional they are. A good partner will always strive to explain concepts in terms that are understandable to you. Look for those who speak your language. Communication is the foundation stone of a successful project.
Did they really understand your challenge and the purpose of the project? Which tools do they use to guarantee faultless communication? Whom should you contact if you have any questions or concerns? All these and many more questions should be answered prior to starting a project.

Offerings on the Market

First of all, it is very important to define your project requirements clearly in order to check if the IT outsourcing company can comply with them. The challenge is that you and people on your team may not have the necessary qualifications to define all the project requirements. Usually, a well-organized outsourcing company has its own strategy and advisory department, which will help you model the whole process in detail and suggest best ways for achieving your goals.

The challenges of medium-sized businesses can often be compared with those of big ones. Departments experience cost pressure, and, on the other hand, should constantly increase their productivity in order to withstand market competition.
Furthermore, entrepreneurs are forced to advance their expertise and adjust their hardware and staff costs to the requirements of their business due to the rapid development of new technologies. At the same time, qualified employees and specialists are becoming ever more expensive.

The complexity of technical possibilities makes the assessment of current and future IT requirements a never-ending task, and usually it’s much easier to outsource it development to handle all your tasks rather than go through all the associated difficulties of creating in-house team to achieve often inferior results.
