Some additional points to keep in mind:
Time and Cost estimation – If a service provider gives you a price and timeframe for the project but does not include a detailed estimate of the time and costs required for the individual tasks, such a company might not meet deadlines or deliver high-quality software solutions.
Development should always include testing – In some cases, testing and bug fixing make up 50 percent of the entire project implementation period. An experienced and professional company knows that extensive testing is absolutely vital in the development of complex projects and puts the necessary QA measures in place.
Check the company’s portfolio – I highly recommend finding a company that has already developed projects similar to the one you are looking to outsource. The company that best suits your needs is likely to be one that works in the industrial specialization you are seeking for your project.
Do not make the lowest price your priority – Please keep in mind that you get what you pay for. If a company offers a low price, it may be because they are using junior developers rather than senior or mid-level developers.
Communication – Even for people speaking the same language, misunderstandings are a fact of life. The risk of misunderstandings increases exponentially when different languages and cultures, and therefore also different preferences and styles of communication, are involved. Simply having English-speaking contacts at your new Offshore Development Center is not enough. The company should have a system in place that fosters communication by means of the appropriate software, such as issue tracking systems, conference call scheduling, Skype chats, etc. Professional companies tend to be very experienced in setting up effective communication measures.
Source code security and intellectual property protection – This maybe the most important factor of all. When a company plans to outsource its software development and the software to be developed will be based on existing source code, it is essential that this source code as well as any information about clients remains confidential. For this reason, I do not recommend working with freelance developers if confidential information is involved since these developers cannot ensure serious protection of intellectual property.
The thought of outsourcing software development to an offshore development company may be daunting. Following the above mentioned advice will help you find an offshore software development company that could be a reliable business partner for many years to come. Remember not rush into a business relationship with a new partner.
