4 good reasons to outsource projects
Think about the different projects your company would like to realise in the short and long term. Chances are you’ll sit back and sigh – it’s quite the list. And as always, there’s so much work, but so little time to do it all.
But should that be the normal course of events? Stress and uncertainty, always just lagging behind your ambitions and deadlines… It doesn’t have to be this way! And the solution is simple: outsource your projects to a third party.
“Yes, but if you want something right, you’re better off doing it yourself!”
“That’s so expensive!”
“I don’t want to relinquish control!”
Not so fast. Outsourcing projects to an external partner really has a lot of advantages for you.
1. You get a full team, with the right experts
By outsourcing your project, you can quickly call in a team that is up to date with all the latest trends and developments.
This way, you don’t waste time getting the right experts in-house yourself. You’ve got to admit: do you really see yourself putting a complete web development team together in-house? I’m sure you realise that finding, hiring, training, and integrating new colleagues is a process that should not be underestimated. In addition, the experts must have a wide range of technical skills. If you don’t fully understand this yourself, your hiring process will become even more complicated and time-consuming.
This is another area where you benefit from outsourcing your projects. You can rest assured that only experienced and qualified specialists will take care of your project. The logical result: you are guaranteed to make the best choices along the way, whether it’s technology, design, or development. Moreover, you will also become acquainted with new insights and working methods. Want to be able to use it in the future to implement innovation and change?
The AUSY touch
Our experts are deployed in-house in various teams. A permanent client team, built around the right expertise, will take care of your project from start to finish. That team then gets to know your project and company through and through. It’s an indispensable aspect for the very best end result!
2. You get more work done
And by this, we mean that you’ll get more done yourself. Your external partner serves as a safety net for you, watching what you can’t. This way, you don’t have to spend time solving problems, or managing your time or risks yourself. The project team is there to take care of this for you!
What about you? You can pay more attention to your core activities, your strategy, and your business objectives. You keep your finger on the pulse of the market in which you are active so that you can really give your company a competitive advantage.
The AUSY touch
It’s important to us that you remain involved in the project and that you are always up to date with the latest state of affairs. This way, you also have a permanent project manager within your own client team who keeps you up to date on the latest developments via regular status meetings.
3. Targeted effort with guaranteed results
The teams you work with already have a lot of experience with similar projects. They grasp all your concrete goals and expectations right from the very start of the project. The end result: the best customised solution. You’re certain to strengthen your position in the market in this way.
Apart from expertise in the field of content – important! – an external partner also knows how everything can be managed optimally, which method of working is most successful, and in which way the team works best together. Of course, this also contributes to the smooth running of the project, from intake to delivery.
The AUSY touch
We notice that customers often fear losing control of the project. In order to ensure that agreements made are complied with, we record the scope of the project in a Statement of Work. This is a detailed document defining what the project does and does not include. No discussions, but a successful project.
4. Cost savings
We mentioned above that hiring a full-time team to carry out your project takes a lot of time; plus, it also costs you a lot of money. Especially if you add in all the investments in technology, training, or infrastructure. Can’t you just see the costs rising? Outsourcing projects can really give you a financial advantage.
Moreover, external experts often work more efficiently and thus more cost effectively. After all, they really do know what they’re doing and are perfectly attuned to each other. Such external teams are familiar with your request and know the best way to work based on their years of experience.
The AUSY touch
We already mentioned that we have several in-house teams spread out at various locations. Those locations cross national borders. So we do not only have teams in Belgium, but in several European and Asian countries as well. Depending on your request, nearshoring and offshoring are a part of Engineering and IT, so they’re also among the possibilities. Nearshoring and offshoring reduce your costs because the hourly rates are lower, among other things.
When you rely on an external partner to complete one of your projects, you’re sure to sleep easy. Because outsourcing projects gives you certainty:
- Experienced professionals take on your challenge.
- The result is tailored to your company.
- You not only save time, but money too.
