What are the cost savings of outsourcing software development?
Outsourcing development and software engineering work is a great option for companies that don’t have the budget for an in-house employee. It’s also a worthwhile investment for larger businesses that are looking for ways to expand their teams quickly and in a cost-efficient way.
When companies first think about outsourcing, they mostly focus on the initial difference in salary. While this is a large part of why many companies begin working with outsourced employees, salary isn’t the only money saver to consider.

Benefits quickly add up to be a huge cost when hiring in-house. It’s not just insurance that can burn through the company budget either; paid leave and overtime pay can be draining to a small company. Don’t forget other benefits that help you recruit and retain employees like 401Ks; these aren’t an extra cost when hiring outsourced employees through a staffing firm.
Equipment can also be a surprise expense. Not only do you need a full set-up for your developer’s workstation with a computer, monitors, keyboards, and more, but you’re also going to have to pay for any software they need. If you work with a freelance remote employee, you may still be on the hook for these costs, but when working with an established staffing company, they’ll provide developers with the things they need for coding and development work.
If you’re looking to supplement your current team, or need a single developer for your project, consider working with a trusted staffing partner. Not only will you save your company’s budget, but you’ll take work off your plate in other areas like HR, recruiting, and retention.
