The Dos and Don’ts Of Outsourcing Work To Laravel Remote Developers

Our team of expert remote Laravel developers specialise in providing companies across a diverse set of industries with bespoke websites and applications. Whatever you need, whether it’s to elevate your brand or improve efficiency, we can provide it. 

When working in this digital age, it is vital to be able to keep up with the competition, and often this can be harder than you initially think. The beauty of the modern age is that there are plenty of opportunities to expand your team without actually having to hire more full-time employees.

This is particularly true when taking on large, one-off development projects. Don’t limit yourself or your company only to jobs that you can complete in-house. Temporarily expand your team by outsourcing the more complex aspects of development.

That’s where we come in. We specialise in assisting large development projects in a very area: Laravel.

When developing software packages, our developers use a robust, lightweight and secure PHP framework called Laravel. With the capability to run colossal amounts of data almost instantly, Laravel is perfectly suited to large projects. You will be in safe hands when outsourcing your development needs to us.

We will be able to create something truly magical for your business. 

What is outsourcing?

Outsourcing is the practice of hiring a third-party to deliver a product or service. Small companies, in particular, may not have the resources for things such as web development, marketing or finance. They will instead find an agency that specialises in a specific area of work and use them to complete a project or provide ongoing support to the business. This can be a cost-effective way to get a job done as it negates the need to hire an employee and pay them a salary, pension and the other costs associated with office-based employees. 

Outsourcing can open up opportunities for many companies.

So what are the pros and cons of choosing to outsource your development project to remote Laravel developers like us?

Pros of outsourcing to remote Laravel developers

Pro

Cost-Effective

The best thing about choosing to outsource is the fact that it is cost-effective in every sense. When you decide to outsource a service, you forego the costs of hiring a new employee. This makes a huge difference to any business in terms of overheads, and it will mean not having to pay large wages, office equipment, or pensions. Although initial outsourcing rates may seem expensive, they are much less in the long run compared to someone coming in to work for your company full time.

Less hassle

When it comes time to hire a new employee, there are so many things you need to organise. From changing the seating arrangement in the office to paying for new equipment, it can be a pain. However, if you hire a remote outsourced worker instead, they will work from home or their own office so you don’t need to worry about any of that.

You save on software

One of the best things about hiring remote Laravel developers like us is that you won’t need to supply your new employee with lots of costly software. An expert developer will already have the software they need to complete the job. This will save you a ton of money on expensive subscriptions.

Expert hands

As an entrepreneur or a small business owner, you’ll likely try to do as many things you can yourself, but this isn’t always the best course of action. By choosing a professional agency with the skills and resources to complete the job, you won’t make silly mistakes as you try to figure things out. Allow yourself to trust in the professionals, and the job will be completed not only quicker, but better. 

Simple switch

When things aren’t quite working out with an employee, you might struggle to let them go. You’ll then have to go through a long, arduous hiring process for a replacement. But what happens when you want to let an outsourced worker go? It’s much easier to replace them because you can simply find another agency and get going with your project again in a matter of days. 

Cons of outsourcing to remote Laravel developers

Cons

Communication

As we all know, it is easier to talk to someone face-to-face. When we are sitting in the same office, we can have a quick chat and resolve an issue in minutes. But, what about when you have an outsourced worker working remotely? Well, in that case, you will be contacting them via phone, email, or video chat. For an agency experienced in working remotely, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue though, so choose wisely.

Time Zone

One of the best reasons to outsource is that you can choose from a pool of workers from all over the world. This ensures that you are getting access to the best experts in their field. But, there are downsides. When you hire a remote worker in another country, you need to be mindful of the time zone they work in.

Legitimacy

The online world is great, and it has opened many of us up to fantastic opportunities, but it has also created some issues. There are many people out there who will take advantage of you, delivering poor quality work and, in some cases, none at all. When you are searching for a remote team, make sure that you run background checks, check reviews and generally conduct due diligence.

Privacy

When you outsource a service and allow other individuals and agencies access to sensitive information about your company, you need to ensure that you can trust them. 

Things to avoid

If you are thinking about outsourcing a Laravel development project, it’s vital that you do your research. Be prepared and avoid some of the simple mistakes some businesses make. We want to ensure you make the right call for your business; these are four things you need to watch out for.

1. Not having a plan of action

When you look to outsource a project to Laravel remote developers, you cannot simply turn up with a blank slate. When you hire for any job role, be it in-house or outsourced, you must have a clear idea of what the role entails. It’s no different when outsourcing a project to another agency.

2. Not having a consensus among your team

If you have an internal team of workers, it is important to consult with them on their ideas for the business. Make sure that the whole team is on board and involve them in decision making because they might have some great views of their own. 

As the old saying goes: Two heads are better than one.

3. Not setting out a clear brief

If you have never outsourced work to an agency or you have never hired a freelancer before, you may not be aware of the level of detail that should go into a brief. Imagine you were looking in from the outside and you had no idea what your business did. You need to set out your objectives clearly as well as what you are expecting to be delivered.

4. Not creating a clear contract

When it comes to outsourcing, the contract is your safety net. It means that if someone tries to swindle you with shoddy service, you have a written agreement to protect you.
