In many projects, the decision to develop in-house or outsource isn’t up to you. Either an internal team already exists, or you’re forced to outsource because you can’t or do not want to fund in-house staff.
If strategy is to out-source, what benefits can we provide you?
- Cost savings - we remove the expenses of hiring, paying, training, and providing equipment for an in-house team
- Experience - we have built 100's of web projects
- Ideas - we bring fresh perspective and can suggest new ideas
- Knowledge - we are experts at Drupal, and we also bring are expertise in domains, hostings, security and user support to our projects
Your decision, when developing a website, should come down to the length of the project and the funding available. If your website needs constant development over a very long period of time and will evolve on an ongoing basis, then an in-house team may be more appropriate. For shorter development projects, the benefits and cost savings of outsourcing may outweigh the convenience of an in-house team.
Then there is the ongoing costs - supporting an in-house team can be expensive. You must consider the initial costs of recruitment and equipment, and the ongoing expenses of salary and training. Or you can out-source these to us as well and only pay for them when you need or use them.
In reality, there is no reason why you can’t combine both approaches as our clients do. You could use an external agency, like us, for design and development work while content generation and data entry is handled by an internal web editor. Equally, you could do the bulk of development internally but bring us in for specialist work such as module development and security.
