Got an idea of a mobile application you are inspired to bring to life? Do you face the lack of brilliant people in your area ready to help you? Or maybe those whom you do find ask a fortune?

Here are 5 things to consider when you outsource mobile application development project


Do not entrust too much


Your very first task would be to carefully separate things which can easily be outsourced from those which are better kept intact. However, do not be too quick in putting them in charge of some critical tasks or the significant, core decisions.




Location does matter

Whether you plan to do business in another state, country or even continent, make sure that the chosen area has sufficient resources. It has to be rich in development talents, otherwise you risk getting stuck. Needless to say, the value for money is to be taken into consideration as well. If it is not reasonable, what is the point of the whole thing?


Teamwork makes the dream work


Choosing the perfect team can spare your time, money and nerves. This is definitely something you need to do yourself. Talk to every candidate, check their qualifications and experience, test their awareness of the importance of the project, be sure that they have got acquainted with the technical side of the development and are capable of doing it.



Management: either you run the day or the day runs you

Your success is in your own hands, it’s true. Project managers and account managers can ease your work quite a lot, but it’s definitely you who has to be in charge. Surely you can assign the project management team yourself, but if the project of your app is extensive enough


Reward sweetens labor


No one wants their achievements to go unnoticed. The best employees are the most motivated ones. If you want your start-up to kick in, make your outsourcing team share this desire. Create a system of bonuses and rewards for great performance and you’ll be surprised to see your project speed up.
