Why You’ll Hate Outsourcing to India
You may have heard that outsourcing your development is a difficult, painful process.
And, like any true entrepreneur or executive, you relish the thought of getting your hands dirty: battling through impediments, beating difficulties, and granulating endlessly at your objective. All things considered, who could need a simple, easy process, free of difficulties or deferrals? Not you.
In fact, you may love 3 a.m emergency calls, long working hours, and delays due to employee turnover. You may even look forward to getting the news that the project is stalled over-budget because you savor the thrill of making your life much harder than necessary.
If that’s the case, you’re going to hate outsourcing to India.
Advances in technology and management processes have made outsourcing to certain development firms in India a simple and pain-free. With a good outsourcing agency, developing your project can be as quick and effective as working with your own in-house team… but without the overhead.
Of course, in case you’re the type of person depicted above, you’ll likely hate that. You’ll be confused and unhappy. “Where’s the conflict?” you might ask. “Why is everything going so smoothly?” After completing your project, on-time, and under budget, you might even vow never to outsource in India ever again.
But that’s not all. There are plenty more reasons why you’ll hate outsourcing your development to India. Keep reading.
Problem #1: The Quality of Developers is Too Good
It’s increasingly common that developers in India compete directly with developers in the West. The skills and capabilities of the average Indian developer are comparable with that of the average Western developer.
The differences are just clear when you compare Indian developers to the best-of-the-best Western developers. The best Western designers are usually grabbed up by large international firms like Google, which can afford to pay them high wages. If you don’t have the size and budget of Google or IBM, then your chances of scoring a developer of that caliber are slim.
Still, the pool of even average designers in the West is little. While the best ones get hired by large companies or agencies, a lower supply, and a high demand means that even mediocre developers can command high prices.
So what are you going to do on the off chance that you require a designer, aren’t willing to pay over the top wages?
Unfortunately for the individuals who detest fantastic improvement and would get an untested, half-completed item that breaks on its first use, designers in India are more than fit for venturing up to fill that gap.
A good developer is a decent engineer, all things considered, regardless of what country they originate from…
And a globally connected world has enabled developers in India to access the same resources and knowledge as their counterparts in the west.
The result is a product that can remain individually against any competition.
Were you looking forward to launching the poor quality product? Then avoid outsourcing to India. It’ll only frustrate you.
Which brings us to my next point:
Problem # 2: Outsourcing to India is 4x LESS Expensive
Take, for example, PHP developers.
The normal rate for a PHP developer in India is around $15 / hour: vastly more cost-effective than hiring Western developers to perform the same service.
As we’ve already addressed, the skill disparity between the average Indian developer and the average American developer is actually quite minimal. There is very little difference in talent between a Western developer and an Indian developer with the same experience.
The biggest difference is that one costs a base salary of $85,000… and the other costs you $15 an hour (less than $30,000 a year).
That’s a huge difference…
But is it really 4 times the difference?
Yes. When you include the costs of taxes, recruitment and training, equipment, and paid vacation and sick days, the total for an in-house developer from the West amounts to a lot more (around $123,000).
You don’t have to pay those when you outsource to India… we’ve done it all for you.
If you’re someone who likes spending more money on the same service, avoid hiring developers from India at all costs.
Problem #3: The Process is Pain-Free
Unfortunately for the individuals who love a long, difficult grind, outsourcing to India has become as reliable as science. No matter how hard you try, you probably won’t find anything to be frustrated and angry about when you take your project to a good development firm.
For example, take our situation
On occasion, some of our customers express disbelief that they get such good service from an Indian company. In that case, we’re happy to point out three main things: our infrastructure, our project management, and communications, and our hiring process.
In some countries, power outages, security breaches, and high employee turnover are very common. That’s why you must consider infrastructure when selecting an outsourcing firm. Here at Capital Numbers, we employ state of the art infrastructure with backup power and internet in the case of a private outage. We also have multiple layers of security — not only digital, but physical as well. This allows us to work on your project with no interruptions. Finally, we ensure our office layout contributes to developer happiness, low turnover, and excellent results.
The foundation even advises our task administration. We keep stringent administration hones set up for group correspondence, quick onboarding times, and proactive arrangements. On the off chance that one of our workers needs to take a debilitated day or some time off with family, our frameworks can adjust for that. We can basically cycle in another engineer immediately.
At last, our enlisting procedure guarantees that just the best designers are doled out to your venture. Comprehensively, we screen for specialized magnificence and capacity; yet more particularly we screen for hopefuls who are the best fit for your particular venture. Hopefuls at that point experience different thorough rounds of meetings to guarantee just ever work with the most qualified designers.
Of course, these are just examples from our company. But many outsourcing agencies in India have started to adopt this kind of approach.
