Creative thinking can make a big difference in any size business, small, medium or large. SMEs, startups and entrepreneurs – do you want your dreams 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 advance communication allows the provision of service at anytime and from anywhere. This has emerged 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 significantly lower cost base. With offshore companies, you cannot have the total control over the project or you cannot get the 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 the companies within the same country. In such case travel and communication, cost is lower but development costs are higher. You might not know but most of these onshore companies handover 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 the 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 lack of understanding. With onshore you get the local reliability but the cost is high.
