Several Factors of the Outsourcing Evaluation Process

To find the best fit offshore development partner for your project, not only should you invest in low-cost countries but also find the right balance between pricing, technical capabilities, industry experience, and a host of other outsourcing criteria. 

Here are several factors that form a thorough overview of outsourcing evaluation process:

  • Geography and time zone

  • Experience and qualification

  • Domain expertise and technical stack

  • Delivery process

  • Office infrastructure and facilities

  • Outsourcing rates

  • Communication

  • Cultural fit

  • Intellectual property

  • Knowledge transfer/Exit strategy

  • Contract practices

Conclusion

In conclusion, the cost always matters, but what matters more is both true-cost and value. So, it’s essential to go beyond the rates and spend considerable effort to verify your prospects on different outsourcing factors. And this could help you to develop a stable long-term working relationship, take advantage of the low-cost benefits of outsourcing methods, ensure quality as expected, and mitigate the emerging threats.
