Developing a website or mobile app for your business is by no means a simple project. It requires a team of professionals to ensure that the website or app is created to look great and work in a smooth manner. As either presents itself as the face of your brand or business, it is important that you get them right by choosing the ideal kind of experts to work on them.
There are two ways you can go about this: either create an in-house development team or hire dedicated resources as an external team.
An in-house development team is just that - a group of web and mobile developers that are full-time employees of your company. A dedicated resource (or resources, as the case may be), are a team of professional developers that work as full-time employees of a developing agency, who will work on your project. Think of it as hiring a freelancer, but instead of just one individual, it’s a group of people with different expertise who will take over the development of your app, website or software. The ‘dedicated’ part comes in because generally during the course of your project, those developers and experts will not work on any other client’s app or website. All of their focus, efforts and time will be dedicated to working solely on your project. As such, these resources will always be available to you for any of the requirements your project may demand.
An in-house team is only suitable when you have a number of very large and intensive projects and a huge budget. Dedicated resources are perfect for when you only have a few apps and websites that need to be developed and don’t have a restricted (not necessarily low, but not a limitless) budget.
Hiring dedicated resources are considered to be the better option because they vastly reduce costs and can offer a faster turnaround time. How? Let’s take a look:
Research suggests that when you hire dedicated web developers or dedicated mobile app developers, you can save as much as 40% on your project costs. This is because an in-house development team means that they are your full-time employees with regular salaries and perks. A dedicated web developer, on the other hand, will work pretty much as a freelancer, in that, you have to only pay for their services. As we said above, development requires people with different types of expertise. To hire experts in different fields as full-time employees, you should have the kind of work volume that will justify such an investment. It also takes much more effort to recruit such a team. When you hire dedicated mobile app developers as external resources, you will get a mix of experts that you need, all in one place. You only need to pay for the work done by the team as a whole and will be assigned resources on the basis of your needs.
Another important factor that contributes to reducing costs when you hire dedicated web developers as an external resource is that you don’t have to pay to buy additional hardware or software or provide any training for development purposes, as they will already be available with the development agency or firm for your dedicated resources to use.
When you hire dedicated mobile developers as your external resource, they will be able to divide the project into smaller tasks and have multiple teams working on the same app or website. Work can also be done simultaneously on both your app and website, with specialized experts working on the front end and back end at the same time. This is how deployment times are sped up when you hire dedicated web developers or dedicated mobile app developers. The project manager will keep you informed with regular updates and you can also expect iterations in a timely manner.
As time and money are always important considerations for any business, the dedicated resource model is often preferred. It gives you the control and reliability that you would get from having an in-house team but with lower expenses and quicker results.
