How do you promote your outsourcing company

Software outsourcingWhat prevents companies from outsourcing software development

Some companies believe that outsourcing can lead to a complete loss of control due to a lack of face-to-face communication. However, the level of control that outsourcing offers depends heavily on the chosen cooperation model.

Project outsourcing

With the project outsourcing model, the rudder is mostly in the hands of your software development partner. He takes on the control of processes at a high level up to assessing the quality of the resources in the team. The customer is usually involved in the process by checking software demos and providing feedback. However, the integration of internal processes and experts in such distributed teams can be a challenge in the project outsourcing model.

IT outstaffing

Another popular cooperation model, IT outstaffing, implies active participation by the customer. In this model, your technical provider acts as a supporter while you have complete control over the development process and team motivation. In this model you can directly determine the roles and responsibilities within the team and influence the motivation in the team in order to avoid leaving the team. You can bring your corporate culture into the way the team works and encourage commitment to common goals within the development team.

Regardless of the model, regular communication and feedback mechanisms are of fundamental importance. To set up efficient collaboration with your outsourced team, you should use special tools for managing work items (e.g. Jira), continuous integration (Jenkins or TFS) and shared repositories (Gitlab, Github, Bitbucket or VSTS). These tools allow you to track the team's progress, identify potential bottlenecks, and focus on continuous improvement.
