A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realises he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below says: "Yes you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."

"You must be a software developer," says the balloonist.

"I am," replies the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's of no use to anyone."

The man below says, "You must work in business as a manager." "I do," replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going, but you expect me to be able to help!

For years, outsourcing and lower labour costs have been nearly interchangeable. However, outsourcing comes in many forms, be it offshore, near shore or onshore, and can achieve a number of different objectives such as reducing geopolitical risks or covering multiple time zones.

Utilizing outsourcing as part of your strategic innovation and R&D plans can help keep you ahead of the competition in today’s fast-paced global business environment. With that in mind, here are some of the main reasons to consider outsourced R&D.

Your Outsourcing Partner May Have More Expertise
Your company might be an expert in web application development and streamlining user experience, but the complexity of today’s business environment could demand skills your team doesn’t have. Maybe you’ve never built a native mobile app before, or you’re just tired of hearing the same ideas from your staff.
Whatever the case, outsourced development partners can provide a new channel for generating ideas while also finding the right people with the right qualifications for the job.

You Might Be Short on Internal Manpower
Even with all the right tools for the job in-house, your internal teams might not have the time to take a step back from executing and evaluate the big picture. In fact, many companies cite the lack of time to be creative and innovative as one of their primary barriers to successful R&D. When it comes time to build a new version of your app, outsourcing its development could uncover ideas your team hadn’t considered. Additionally, with your partner handling updates to your existing projects, your internal teams have more time to think about what’s next, keeping them focused on your long-term goals.
 
Yes, It Can Also Save Costs
I know, we said outsourcing wasn’t just a cost play and we don’t think it is. However, costs are still a high ranking factor for outsourcing success within the technology industry. While western companies often find favourable pricing benefits when working offshore, it’s more important to find an outsourcing partner with a culture and a commitment to innovation. You expect your employees to be the best and brightest in the business, utilizing their research and development acumen to stay ahead of the competition, and you should have the same expectation of your outsourced developers.
If you do decide to go offshore, you’ll want to make sure that your intellectual property is adequately protected.

It May Get Your Product on the Market Faster
Just as many companies say they lack the time internally to be innovative, market conditions may be moving faster than you’re able to with your current resources. Using outsourced software developers as part of your R&D process can increase your collective brainpower without dramatically increasing your staff of operating cost. By using your outsourcing partner to scale your activities you can keep up with the fast moving software development market so you don’t get left behind by the competition.

"Net Efficiency are the lead developers for Belron International and I have worked with them on a day-to-day basis for the last 5 years. They are everything I would look for in a development agency, and we work so closely with them they feel like part of the team. They are of course excellent at the day job of completing development work, but they also bring more than just this to the partnership - they are friendly, creative, patient, ready to challenge when necessary and, most importantly, they continuously demonstrate how important it is for them to do as good a job as possible."
