By outsourcing to India, businesses can leverage the immense talent pool currently available in India and achieve considerable profits.
There are several companies across the world who choose offshore development as a means to find talent and cut costs. However, they often run into common issues such as:
These issues can appear both in terms of the local culture, as well as organizational culture. It’s hard to manage a team that doesn’t follow the same policies, timelines and discipline as you do. Language can often be a barrier as well in being able to work together effectively.
These are bound to occur when operating from geographical locations that are placed poles apart. When you are working with an offshore group, most communication aspects get compounded – phone calls, emails, and so on. This may lead to longer turnaround times and unexpected outcomes.
Not all employees are made equal. When working with an offshore team, you may encounter individuals who aren’t quite qualified for the task at hand. Because your involvement in hiring may be rather minimal, you may not have as much control over quality of the talent. Barriers in communication can also lead to a lack of understanding and comprehension, which impacts the final product negatively.
It’s hard to bring a sense of camaraderie and cohesion to a team sitting worlds apart, unless specific steps are taken towards building a rapport. Often, a blame game begins between both teams which ultimately impacts the project at hand, and affects profitability.
A large majority of offshore partnerships come to a screeching halt mainly because of an issue with the quality of talent. In order to keep costs at a minimum and get started early, not enough due diligence is done when hiring.
It’s not easy to set up and efficiently run an office from halfway across the world. Harder still is to ensure accountability from the offshore team, without implementing proper procedures for communication and tracking in place.
If you are not working with a reputable offshore partner, you may quickly realize that employees are not sticking with the organization for a variety of reasons that are beyond your control.
Strategic management of IP is crucial in ensuring that your code, ideas and solutions are not being sold for profit. Companies that have signed up for offshore partnerships without setting up stringent clauses and eliminating all traces of risk, are bound to run into ownership issues in the future.
All of these factors combine to make a supposedly lower cost option a rather expensive and yet unproductive endeavor.
At TechJini, we understand what factors combine to create a successful and profitable offshore partnership. Read on to find out what TechJini brings to the table.
