Dedicated PHP Developer Vs Freelance PHP Developer Vs PHP Project Outsourcing


PHP outsourcing can be carried out in three major ways. One, outsourcing PHP development to a freelancer. Two, outsourcing PHP as a fixed-cost project outsourcing. Three, outsourcing to a dedicated PHP developer who works for a reputed remote staffing company.

Each of the three options caters to a niche market, and comes with its own sets if benefits. Which PHP outsourcing strategy would offer the most value for money – a freelancer, project management or a remote employee? A comparative study of all three options can prove to be very revealing.

  1. Freelance PHP Developer. A freelance PHP developer probably works for more than just one IT client at a time. They are the most common choice for short-term and low-budget projects that do not require too much collaboration or communication between the client and the freelancer. Being more cost-effective than the other two options is what gives the PHP freelancer an edge over the others.

    However, because of the freelance PHP developer's multiple commitments, working with them can often be a risky affair. Handling several deadlines simultaneously can mean that your project may not get the priority it deserves if the freelancer happens to contract a higher-paying assignment. Failure to meet deadlines is fairly common with freelancers.

    The freelancer is also not a dedicated resource like a remote employee. Data security and professionalism is always an issue with a freelancer since no contract has been signed with them and there's an absence of a system of checks.

    Finally, a freelance PHP developer usually works from home, and has limited access to the best hardware, latest software and communication channels.

  2. PHP Project Outsourcing. Till recently, this had been the most preferred outsourcing method with IT firms for all kinds of IT outsourcing.  They would often outsource entire projects to IT outsourcing companies in India, which would then take charge of the project completely. The client's role would be limited to giving specifications at the time of outsourcing, leaving the outsourcing vendor to work on project as they saw fit. Project outsourcing works out more expensive than either hiring a freelancer or a remote employee because a company ends up paying for the services of an entire team rather than an individual worker.

    However, the biggest disadvantage of PHP project outsourcing is that a company has absolutely no control once it outsources a particular project.

  3. Dedicated PHP Developer. Easily the best option today. A remote or virtual PHP developer is as good as a local, physically present employee. They work from the safe, controlled office environment of the outsourcing service vendor as opposed to in isolation from home like a freelancer. PHP development calls for the latest technology, hardware and software – all of which is easily accessible from the vendor's office.

    Since the dedicated PHP developer has been selected by you after a very thorough dual screening process, he or she would always be someone who is almost 'customized' to suit your requirements. Collaboration and communication is very easy, thanks to the state-of-the-art technology used by the vendor.

So, if a firm were to undertake PHP development outsourcing, their best bet would be to outsource the work to a dedicated remote employee.
