    Cool Points to be noted when outsourcing PHP or other projects

    Here are my top tips on choosing the right specialist and how outsourcing can save your business money without compromising on quality:

    Get quotes from different suppliers and from different locations: Get a good selection of quotes to choose from and remember cheaper quotes don’t always mean poorer service. Outsourcing overseas, or ‘off shoring’, to countries with lower cost economies can mean you get the same level of service, talent and quality for a much lower price.

    Research suppliers before committing: Read reviews about the company and find out what previous customers thought about the service they received.

    Plan the project: Make sure that you have a set time frame to get the job completed and arrange for payments to be weighted towards the back end of the project, this way you don’t risk paying for something until your completely satisfied.
    What will work for you: Think about which functions you could outsource and how much it could save you. There are several outsourcing options from traditional IT services to design or translation and even sales and telemarketing.

    It’s essential that start-ups and small businesses explore these outsourcing opportunities in order for them to prosper, especially in the current climate. It helps to cut costs but also, perhaps more importantly, can help businesses to gain a competitive edge by bringing in skilled and experienced professionals.

    Re: Points to be noted when outsourcing PHP or other projects

    Outsourcing projects and tasks has greatly helped my company for the past years. Indeed, you can get the same (if not better) service for a lower cost if you know how to look for offshore workers.

    To add to your list, you have to make sure your employees are closely monitored. That is the most critical part in outsourcing. You may even have to resort to using a tracking software to still have supervision over them even though they work remotely.

    With the right strategies, tools and including the relationship you have with your offshore workers, I'm sure outsourcing projects will never be a hassle and will be of great help to your company.

    I have to agree. Outsourcing can surely make you save money but even though there are lots of benefits of it, I have to admit that there are also some disadvantages. And not being able to see what your staff is really doing is one example. You need to monitor you employee's productivity in order to know if cutting the cost by outsourcing is really worth it.
