If you are like most Dynamics NAV Partners, you have a lot on your plate. New implementations, regular upgrades, system maintenancej, pre-sales efforts - you name it. But are you equally adept at attracting the right candidates for work? Or maybe landing a new project means that your team needs to work overtime, some deadlines are missed and maybe even some sales opportunities are dropped? If any of the above sounds familiar, you should definitely consider outsourcing part of your development works.
Here are the top 6 reasons why you should do it.
1. It will help you handle project peaks
It's hard to find an industry where work is distributed equally across the whole year. IT projects are no different - I'm sure that there is a part of the year when your team can cut some slack, but on the other hand there are times when you could definitely use an extra pair of hands. This is when development outsourcing comes handy. We will help you deal with your projects peaks without increasing your headcount. After our help is no longer needed, you will simply recall our developer and continue working with your internal resources.
Here is how it works:
2. For creating specific Modifications/Solutions
Not everything you do is your core business. The best strategy then would be to focus on what's most important for your business and let someone else do the rest. Repetitive development tasks, technical upgrades or simple modifications can be easily outsourced without any harm to quality. Also external developers can be swiftly involved in such projects with minimal onboarding.
3. To capitalize on every sales opportunity
Well, not literaly every sales opportunity, but every sales opportunity that is meaningful for you. If now you are snowed under implementation projects it is unlikely that you will be able to put on a good fight for additional projects. But if you free up some space by outsourcing part of the development you might be able to organize your work in a way which allows you to engage in more presales and prepare winning offers.
4. Because it is fast!
How much time do you need to recruit a new person? 1-2-3 months? What about their notice period? I think that a fair approximation would be that every time you decide to hire someone, 3-6 months will pass before you can welcome this person on your team.
How does it compare to typical milestones we aim to achieve with every outsourcing request?
|Sending a blind CV||Within 4h|
|Skype interview||Within 24h|
|Starting co-operation||5 Business Days|
5. Because it is flexible!
It means that you can earn money almost instantly and not wait weeks or months until you finally find the right candidate for the project (which might as well have finished already).
Who would be best to expand your team? A senior developer with 10+ years of experience and expert knowledge about Dynamics NAV architecture? A medior who knows a lot about EDI? A talented junior developer who will be able to free up some time for your team?We have them all!
What is even more beautiful is that once the assignment is finished, you can easily recall our developers. We just need a 1-week notice period. That's all. It's as simple as that.
6. Because it is affordable!
Outsourcing part of your development will only make sense if you can earn a healthy margin on it without changing your typical rates for your customers. After working with companies all over Europe we guarantee that it will make a lot of sense. But you don't have to take our word for it, give us a shot and see how you can benefit. We normally do our first small assignment for free to give you a feeling of what you can expect when you decide to work with us.
