Advantages of Engaging an American Software Development Company

Outsourcing may seem to be the right thing to do when it comes to software development. But, it does come with its fair share of problems. Here are a few reasons why you should consider opting for an American company for your software needs.

  1. Outsourcing software development to locations outside your country, can lead to severe quality control issues. There is no practical way to determine what standards and practices are being followed, which means you will have to trust the company based on superficial ratings and testimonials.
  2. Studies have shown that software companies in Asian countries have a 35% dissatisfaction rating.
  3. Different time-zones become a huge hindrance when it comes to interacting with the vendor. You might have to wake up your vendor at a time when they are asleep in order to address issues with the software. This will only lead to low quality work.
  4. There is also a constant threat of information leak when you are forced to share sensitive data with the outsourcing firm. A lot of outsourcing firms abroad do not take preventive measures or responsibility for such incidents. Legal action also becomes a problem when their laws are quite different from ours.
