Significanlty lower development costs in high quality development
have you had chance to develop software with some outsourced devs? I'm curious about your general impressions, especially in terms of maintaining high quality development standards, not only lower development costs (what is usually one of the major reasons to use outsourcing or nearshoring).
Actually we do provide outsourced/nearshored software development services with our office located in central Europe - Poland, we still have significantly lower rates than typical Western European level. On the other hand in comparison to typical outsourcing locations (e.g. Asia) we cannot compete with their prices, but in matter of quality (incl. modern methodologies, like Agile, Scrum), availability, communication or even travelling issues we certainly can and we often win the battle :)
The most crucial thing is to overcome the client's needs to look at price at first - any thoughts how to do this?
Or maybe you want to try us out on your own?
Looking for any interesting responses to this, thanks.
