Designing and developing software requires a lot of skill, time and money. Hiring an external party to design and develop software, which is also known as outsourcing software development, is an option for companies who might not have enough man-power or hardware limitations.
India is one of the established and best outsourcing destinations in the world. The same goes for software development outsourcing. So what makes India a popular outsourcing destination for software development?
Hiring an in-house developer in developed countries is pretty expensive. Whereas in India, the rate per resource is lower compared to countries like the US, Canada, Australia, and other European countries. The added cost of huge salaries, Insurance, Healthcare, etc would be something that can be reduced if one outsources software development.
- On-time delivery
Time is of the essence when it comes to software development. Delaying the launch of an application could become a loss that could have been avoided. An experienced software development company that can develop software based on the requirements within a required timeline would be a boon. Outsourcing to India means one also has the advantage of time-zone.
- Project Access
Companies in India, have a reputation for updating each phase of the development and also provides access to work documents, delivery dates, etc. We, at SectorQube, follow a similar process. At each phase, we share the required deliverables and move forward upon confirmation. This reduces confusion and makes sure there is a smooth process set in place.
- End to End service
Companies here offer coding, user experience design, user interface design, implementation of different frameworks, maintenance, support, etc which means one can get all the required services for developing software in one place.
- Maintenance and support
Even after the completion of software development, maintenance and support to users are hassles faced by a lot of companies. Websites and mobile applications will require continuous maintenance and support. An ideal situation would be maintenance and support being provided by the company which helped develop the software. A lot of companies in India include maintenance and support in their end to end service solutions. This also ensures that the software remains up-to-date based on the current trends in technology and all the features and functions of the software work flawlessly.
Companies in India also have extensive expertise with developers who have a thorough knowledge of the different technologies and platforms. Outsourcing software development will also help one save time and focus on other areas of the business like marketing. Effective marketing is also needed in order to grow an organization.
Statistics say that sixty percent of India’s revenue is from the export of IT services. This contributes to about 7.2 percentage of the GDP. This means India is one of the best options when it comes to outsourcing software development. It helps in saving time, energy and money without compromising on quality.
