The IT industry is notorious for its inconsistency in every way. Be it about its coding language or User Interface or design or even its business plans, its inconsistency is such that things get thrown off the shelf faster than a moth’s lifespan. Today’s glossy screen can be tomorrow’s UX disaster. People have gotten used to so many changes that if you do not provide them with one, they’d assume that you do not care about them. The frustrating part is that even with changes you need to be careful because overdoing it as well as drastic ones can be equally disastrous. How then do you decide as to how much of it is required and when?
This is why ‘Design Thinking’, a methodology derived from the design domain, fits in perfectly with the software development industry. If you haven’t heard of design thinking I know what’s going in your mind and in order to address that, I’d like to quote what sumasoft.com has said in their blog addressing Design Thinking
This approach has seemed to be practical in its application within the software industry since it is user-centric and even the results are user-driven. Design thinking in software development not only makes sure that your idea works but also helps you know how to solve a problem when it occurs.
No, that’s not all. It’s just the beginning and for a complete guide, you can refer to our post on “How to create an app out of your business idea?” where each and every process is discussed.
Yes, the wait is over. I would now like to invite the topic of the day, ‘HIRE DEDICATED DEVELOPERS’ to present itself.
Too much Drama?
That’s exactly why we generally suggest companies “Hire Dedicated Developers” instead of going for the fixed project-based model. People keep complaining that they did not get the product as expected and that service providers did not accept their alterations or additions. They end up blaming software companies and most times it’s because of this that a lot of software development companies lose their respect and are never able to make it.
The time taken to build a Honda Civic will always be different from the time taken to build a Lamborghini and so does the amount. You can’t expect Civic to perform like Lamborghini either; not even if you modify your Civic to look like Lamborghini. Creating a unique and user-friendly app is not an easy task and it will need continued testing under practical circumstances.
Alright, alright! I know you got it. All I am trying to say is that a good application will always demand time and investment. But that doesn’t mean it’s expensive. What’s expensive is a sloppy design and a sloppier application. Why risk your worthy plan for the sake of cheapness that might end up costing you your business?
Hiring dedicated resources will make sure that the people you have hired will only work for you and the best part of it is that you do not even have to own or rent an office or systems for the developers. They are your employees and oh! Wait. Let me jolt these down in Points for you.
‘Hire Dedicated Developer’ Model will always have these features mandatorily. They are:
1.Full-time and experienced developers
here, the word ‘dedicated’ forms the crux of this model and that means every developer you hire will exclusively be working for you. You get to select which ones to hire based on their experiences and your needs. It is as simple as it seems and usually comes with no ‘terms and conditions’.
2. Access to a wide range of skills
Companies that usually provide dedicated developers on hiring basis have developers from various domains such as PHP, .net, android, iOS, and more. So, you get to choose what technology you wish to implement and who to hire be it the ReactJS guy or the Mongo man or the Laravel lad.
3. On-demand availability
One of the major hassles in hiring professionals on your own is their lack of availability. To get a readily available developer every time you’re in need of one is next to impossible if you try to do it on your own. But with this model, you can get your required professional even within a day’s time! This is like the ‘Uber Eats’ of development Services.
Hire developers for a week, month or a year without worrying about the developers once the work is done and dusted. You can hire them any time you want and dismiss them anytime you want and that too 100% guilt-free. That’s what flexibility means!
Talking about scalability, your agency/service providers can provide you with just one developer and can help you scale it up to a full-fledged team containing designers, project managers, and content writers as well, according to your needs.
6. Faster Turnaround
With a dedicated team working only for you and focusing only on your project, everything becomes a priority. This speeds up every process involved in development from ideation to designing, prototyping, development, and testing. Faster turnaround isn’t just a marketing gimmick anymore. Walk the talk with the Hire Dedicated Developer model.
7. Dedicated and long-term Support
When you hire developers for your project from an offshore agency and you relieve them once the project reaches closure, it calls for another set of requirements and that is – maintenance. You can always scale down your required developers or even dismiss the entire crew and hire a bunch of cheaper developers who’d simply assist you with your bugs or other emergencies. You can always count on your offshore agencies for support. After all, you’re hiring!
With no rocket-science involved, this model is cost-effective because of all the above-discussed points. It saves more than you could imagine and is the most sustainable model.
9. Quicker availability during technical emergencies
The developers work for you! I do not even have to explain this to you anymore. You know why there is quicker availability – because they are working solely for you! Solve any technical emergencies in a jiffy. So, you are happy and so are your customers. They pay you well and the developers get their due appreciation and amount and they are happy too. In short, everyone’s happy. Can we call this an ideal model already? Thanks!
10. Your Rules
All of the abovementioned points boil down to one conclusion – YOU ARE THE BOSS. Yes, you do not need to look up to anyone nor do you have to wait for anyone. Everyone who works for you and on the tasks that you want them to do, the way you want them to do. You set the rules because you run the game. What are you waiting for? Hire Us Already.
Well, folks, that’s not all. Here’s our sales pitch coming in… “WHY HIRE FROM ARCHISYS?”
Please do not skip because the most interesting part is yet to come.
Yes, we are an India-based offshore development company but what makes our developers unique is that they are different from the heard. How?
01. They go through training every week
Our developers are trained by experts and seniors on various fronts ranging from creative aspects to technical aspects and are constantly updated about everything new going on around the globe technically. For them to pursue their interests further, we provide them with free access to Udemy and its various courses.
02. They follow ‘Design Patterns’
We believe in structured coding because it helps us tremendously in figuring out any issues and while modifying or making the products integration-friendly. Hence, we train our developers in knowing about different design patterns and practicing them rigorously while working on projects. A clean code results in a cleaner project and we excel at it.
03. They understand ‘Design Thinking’
Archisys is an ardent follower of design thinking and has been working on a number of projects the ‘design thinking’ way. We let our developers know what we are working on and how we develop ideas out of the most common things with the help of people for whom (end-users and not clients) we are building the app.
04. They are good at ‘Macro-management’
We prioritize macro-management over anything. If there’s one thing that our years of experience have taught us then it is this that any project is bound to fail if the people involved in it do not have a bird’s eye view of the entire idea. Most times, applications end up having bugs in them because the developer was simply following orders/tasks assigned to them without knowing the story or the impact of what they’d been developing. At Archisys, this is a no-go. So, macro-management is the only way in.
05. Language Support
This might not be a major catch for a lot of you. But there are companies that face issues regarding language while communicating with developers especially in terms of English. We have people behind the scene to take care of it for you by being the mediator between the client and the developer in case any assistance is needed.
In short, we have our own method of working but at the same time are flexible and receptive towards yours keeping in mind what the goal is. Our self-identity is our strongest selling point and we are proud of it.
If you are not happy with what we’ve said then feel free to navigate away. We would still be happy to have known that you read it so far and respected our space.
But if you are interested in working with us or discussing your idea then do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
