A dedicated offshore Java software application developer can be the deciding factor between success and failure in outsourcing. The reason is that this fairly new entrant (the dedicated employee) in the field of outsourcing gives clients what they have sorely been missing so far – control over their outsourced work and their very own dedicated full-time resource.
Of course, freelancers have always been the obvious choice for a long time now whenever the term outsourcing is mentioned. And they had the field all to themselves till the very obvious chinks in their functioning forced clients to look for alternatives and simultaneously gave rise to their competitors. Today, outsourcing encompasses three basic models – freelancing, project outsourcing and the virtual employee model. Each of these different types of outsourcing models caters to a specific segment of the market. However, when all three are compared, the dedicated employee model seems to be by far the best outsourcing model because not only does it provide all the benefits of outsourcing but it also does away with the unpredictability associated with freelancing and the lack of project control that outright project outsourcing entails.
Established outsourcing service providers like VirtualEmployee.com that specializes in all kinds of IT outsourcing, is the pioneer outsourcing company to have first introduced the concept of the 'virtual employee'. So, when a company wishes to outsource Java development to this vendor, what it gets is not some random freelancer but a personally hand-picked dedicated offshore Java software application developer who works exclusively for them in a dedicated manner.
This is just one of the benefits of hiring a virtual employee. There are many more.
1.Since the Java developer works from the office of the service provider, as opposed to from home like a freelancer, it is easier to manage, control and collaborate with your dedicated employee.
2.The thing to remember is that your Java application developer is not a freelancer but a permanent, full-time resource ( like any other locally hired employee) that works remotely from the VirtualEmployee.com's office.
3.Your SUN Certified Java developer works exclusively for you and for no other clients and you may work with the same employee for as long as you wish.
4.You are also saved the legal wrangles involving insurance, taxes, labour laws and employee benefits etc since the vendor that takes care of all this.
5.Similarly, the cost-effectiveness is not restricted to the salary that you pay to the Java developer either. Degree for degree, you pay just a fraction of what a Java developer would cost you in the US or the UK. In addition, you don't have to invest in the infrastructure, pay office rent or worry about providing the necessary hardware and software to your employee. The vendor takes care of all these logistics.
6.The best part is that you project manage your employee even though both of you are sitting thousands of miles away from each other. It is you who sets the daily tasks for your Java developer; you review their work and give them the appropriate feedback; and you provide any training that may be required.
7.Thanks to the service provider's superior technology, working remotely never poses the kind of challenges that are usually associated with freelancing. Communication is easy and can be as frequent as you wish.
8.Finally, the vendor's office doubles up as an offshore extension of your own unit with the former's HR executives and other departments working on your behalf and giving you the needed support and your employee the back-up whenever required.
So, if you have valuable and long-term Java development work that needs to be outsourced, then outsourcing to a dedicated employee is the smartest way to outsource.
