Creative thinking can make a big difference in any size business, small, medium or large. Growing SMEs, startups and entrepreneurs – do you want your dreams to come true? As an SME or startup, you probably have limited resources, especially when it comes to people.
Technologies now are convergent, which facilitates the easy transfer of data and documents, on the other hand, advanced communication allows the provision of service at any time and from anywhere. This has emerged as a big question in the world of SMEs and startups, which is better onshore, offshore or onshore offshore?
What are the differences between these shores?
Offshoring is when the entire project is handled in a country with a significantly lower cost base. With offshore companies, you cannot have total control over the project or you cannot get local reliability. The development process actually cost little but the demand is higher for communication and travel costs.
Onshoring carries an entirely different prospectus; it is when you get your projects done by companies within the same country. In such cases travel and communication, the cost is lower but development costs are higher. You might not know but most of these onshore companies hand over the development part to offshore. There are many hidden costs as well.
Onshore-offshore is when you can get the high quality and low cost of offshore and local reliability of onshore.
Which “shore” to choose?
Offshore development can save money. It can also increase the level and quality of service, but you cannot get local assurance with this. The person you are dealing with, although he is speaking English, generally it is not his first language. This causes language barriers, communication gaps, and a lack of understanding. With onshore you get local reliability but the cost is high.
