Peter Ladka, president of Parse3, a custom software development company, offers the top ten reasons to outsource software development to an American company.
Using an American company may be less expensive in the long run, once you adjust the numbers to account for hidden costs such as taxes, incurring overtime and lack of continuity.
COMMUNICATION/TIME ZONE ISSUES
Having an American partner company removes any time-zone or communications issues that are so often experienced with offshore partners.
American software development companies use predictability models more often than their foreign counterparts. This model should include a proven process or approach involving at least five comprehensive steps to success; from Discovery to Design to Construction to Launch to Review.
American companies are more likely to be small enough to guarantee great customer service as well as respond quickly with on-time, on budget deliverables.
FLEXIBILITY AND SCALABILITY
American companies are also likely to be flexible enough to handle your changing and larger needs by creating scalable/cutting edge solutions. Look for the just the right size company to fit your needs.
Having a US-based company as a technology partner will provide you with the proper legal protections.
American companies have your best interests at heart in an effort to build long-term partnerships. Strategic decisions around software development choices can save enormous amounts of money in the long run.
The US is fertile ground for finding and hiring innovative high-tech minds from all over the world. Who doesn't want to live here?
American companies tend to train their developers for longer periods of time to prevent costly and avoidable mistakes. Inquire about your partners training program - it should be rigorous.
Last, but not least, it is patriotic to bring your business to well-deserving American companies. Shopping local, for as many products and services as possible, benefits all of us!
