Back to blog Back to homepage Why Offshore Outsourcing Could Be The Best Way To Get Your Project Done Post Covid-19 December 22, 2020 Outstaff Saying Covid-19 has impacted and will still impact our lives for the next decade, at least is an understatement of the year, but with 2 vaccines approved in the united state, 1 in Russia,1 in China and UAE at the time of writing this post, we might be seeing light at the end of the tunnel, soon. As in the case of any major changes, the question is will things get back to normal? and if it doesn’t are we equipped to deal with the new reality? And in the digital development world, how can we cope with the aftermath of Covid-19? In this post, we will discuss the reasons why we think offshore outsourcing could be the best way for you to get your projects done. Before diving deep, it will be wise to know what is offshore outsourcing:  Offshore outsourcing is a strategic practice in which a business hires a third party supplier to perform work in a nation other than the one in which the hiring business primarily conducts its operations. Statistically, offshore outsourcing is gaining more prominence pre Covid-19, and with  the pandemic, the statistic has increased significantly. According to the recent research: Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) market size is expected to reach $405.6 billion by 2027. Over 93% of organizations are considering or have adopted cloud technology to improve outsourcing. IT jobs are the most commonly outsourced jobs in the SME sector. The global IT outsourcing market is expected to grow by $98 billion by 2024. More than half of all companies use third-party support teams to connect with customers. Reasons to Outsource your projects offshore Save on Costs: One of the major benefits of offshore outsource is that you can save a lot on your expenses and still get very good quality products. When you hire an offshore team, you only pay for the job they do, or the hours they put in. No training fee, no health package, no paying for equipment, no taxes.  According to a report on indeed.com, the average salary for a middle PHP developer in the US is 6,475 USD monthly compared to 2,800 USD the same level of developer earns in Ukraine. That’s an astonishing 3,675 USD difference. More flexibility when it comes to hiring: Since you are lo longer constrained by the border of your country your options in hiring the best personal or team that matches your needs substantially increase. You can dive deep into talent pools in any country for the people you need. Time management: Hiring an offshore development team means you can save time and focus on another aspect of your business. The offshore team you hire will be responsible for getting your project done, and all you have to do is schedule a daily meeting or weekly meeting to follow the work progress and also make sure things are going according to plan. Different time zone: There is this myth that having separate time zones affects productivity, that couldn’t be more far from the truth. Imagine leaving in Asia and you hire a team from Ukraine, by the time you close for the day, and leave instructions for changes you need, it’s just noon in Ukraine, which gives the development team ample time to get the task done, or at least, complete a significant aspect of it. Increase your efficiency: Hiring a team of specialists will increase the efficiency at which your project is done and delivered. You don’t have to explain every single aspect of the project to them, although a good project documentation will also go a long way in helping both you and the development team.

WHY OUTSOURCING TO UKRAINE IS A GOOD DECISION FOR STARTUPS

Blog Get to know us in out natural habitat. Back to blog Back to homepage WHY OUTSOURCING TO UKRAINE IS A GOOD DECISION FOR STARTUPS October 16, 2019 Outstaff, Web Development Ukrainian developers are dissolving the myth that IT engineers and programmers who trained in the UK or the US are better than their Ukrainian counterparts. 85% of Ukraine-based workers have a university-level education, which is part of what makes them such reliable and skilled IT engineers. Almost two-thirds of Ukrainian freelancers have a higher degree in computer science, and 55% have more than three years of experience in their profession. Universities in Ukraine have similar admission requirements to those in the US or the UK, requiring a full secondary school or vocational school diploma with good grades. Over 80% of Ukrainians attend university. The 4-year Bachelor’s and 1-2 year Master’s degrees are awarded in accordance with the Bologna Process, which aims to equalize teaching standards across the EU. Six Ukrainian universities featured on the QS Top World University ranking – three located in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city. When it comes to computer science in particular, Kyiv Polytechnic Institute and the National Shevchenko University stand out as the best, offering a number of courses in computer science, computer programming languages and more abstract computational sciences. Most Ukrainian freelancers speak English fluently – over 75% at intermediate level or above. So you can look forward to working with well-educated, experienced developers who can understand your instructions and respond in the same language. Although the cost of salaries for Ukrainian IT engineers has risen noticeably since 2015, they are still a fraction of those paid to IT engineers in the US or UK. Recent studies show that Junior full stack IT developers in Ukraine expect to be paid around $17,000 yearly, while those in the Canada charge over $48,000, in the UK over $32,000, and developers in Switzerland begin at over $91,000. This price discrepancy is largely due to the very low cost of living in Ukraine, which makes it possible for skilled IT developers to undercut their equally talented counterparts elsewhere in the world. There are predictions that the cost of IT development in Ukraine will start to rise soon, so this amazing market might not stay the same for long. Outsourcing is the business practice of hiring a party outside a company to perform services and create goods that traditionally were performed in-house by the company’s own employees and staff. Outsourcing is a practice usually undertaken by companies as a cost-cutting measure. Some Of The Reasons Why Tech Startups Chose To Outsource Development To Ukraine Include: Budget. The vast majority of tech startups bootstrap on a shoestring. Frequently they are self-funding and simply don’t have the capital to spend on an in-house developer. They need the best talent for the lowest price, and Ukraine is where the two converge. Management. Outsourcing software development allows startups to keep management teams focused on the big picture of management without the distractions of handling in-house developers. Time. All too often, the team that’s the first to come out with their MVP wins the funding. Startups that are competing for investment need to get a prototype on the ground as soon as possible. Outsourcing allows them to find the expertise they need to get it done in a hurry. Ukrainian developers are among the most diverse of any in the world. Over 90,000 tech workers are skilled in languages and platforms such as: C++ JavaScript Magento Drupal WordPress Node.js Python Ruby ASP.Net Unity3D PHP Scala Java Regardless of what technologies your project may require, there is no shortage of qualified engineers available to create a solution. Ukrainians use their skills to deliver a wide range of services, including software engineering, web development, software testing, SEO services, cloud and block-chain development, and app development, just to name a few. Overcoming The Fear Of Outsourcing To Ukraine There’s still a stigma about outsourcing development, but it’s not always grounded in reality. Investors frequently demand to know who the tech co-founder is on a project, and there are still venture capital teams that won’t invest when development has been outsourced. It’s true that when handled carelessly, outsourcing to Ukraine remains risky. A startup that has a coding co-founder or a CTO shouldn’t outsource their core code. Sharing core code without putting permissions, database access and other developmental operations into place first is a recipe for disaster. It’s also vital to make it clear who owns the coding knowledge. When it comes to tech startups, knowledge ownership is power. If that knowledge is handed to remote freelancers, it could be permanently lost to the company. Intellectual property rights are nebulous, although Ukraine is working at strengthening laws in this area. That said, most if not all of these issues can be addressed with some forethought, and especially with a strong contract. The contract should cover ownership of IP, and include a non-disclosure agreement that prevents remote workers from sharing your secrets. It is rare for a freelancer to run away with IP and sell it to a competitor – it usually is more effort than it’s worth. It’s also important to make it clear who is responsible for hosting and ensuring that code operates properly. Startups want to avoid finding that the code they paid for doesn’t work properly on the hosted site and that their developers can no longer be found. When there’s an in-house management team that keeps active control over remote IT engineers, outsourcing development can be very successful. A CTO or other technical officer who takes charge of a remote development team combines the benefits of outsourcing with the positives of keeping control of the knowledge. It’s also a good solution for later updates, once there’s a strong programming architecture already in place.
