Local Developers vs Offshore Developers – Why To Choose Local Development Company

Local Developers vs Offshore Developers – Why To Choose Local Development Company

One of the best things about running a company in the 21st century is that there are so many places to turn when you need help. If you’re looking to get a development project underway, for instance, then there’ll be no shortage of places to look. However, and of course, not all the places where you can get help are created equal. Some are better than others! 

The main debate when it comes to developers is Local Developers vs Offshore Developers. Both have their merits, but, overall, it’s better to go with the local development company. In this blog, we’re going to run through some of the key reasons why.

Readily Available

Perhaps the best reason to look local is that, well, they’re there, and they’re readily accessible. When you hire an offshore developer, it’s highly unlikely that you’d ever get together in person to discuss the project — they’re just too far away. And it would only be even more difficult during the coronavirus period since international travel is pretty much impossible at the moment. When you hire a local developer, you’ll know that you’ll be able to get in touch with them when you need to. And providing that the proper safety measures have been followed, you can get together in person and discuss the project directly. 

Protecting Your Property

It’s important to remember that cybercrime has been steadily on the rise in recent years, and especially so over the past 12 months. When you work with a local developer, you can meet with them and get an understanding of how they work, who they are, the safety measures that are put in place, things like that. If you hire an offshore developer just via the internet, then you won’t really know who they are. Are they protecting your digital property as well as they could? If something goes wrong, and you end up losing your code, then there’ll be little you can do. There are laws in place that will protect you against a local company, but once things become international, the laws don’t apply. You’ll have no one you can call.

Lost in Translation

Your development project is a serious and complicated undertaking. As such, it’s important that everyone is on the same page. And it can be hard to be on the same page if there are any language barrier issues. The risk of things getting lost in translation is significant when you look offshore, and non-existent when you’re working locally. You’ll know that the local developer understands perfectly what you’ve told them, reducing the chances of mistakes. 

Peace of Mind 

Ultimately, working with a local developer will just simply give you peace of mind that you’ve made the right choice. An offshore developer can work, but there’s too much capacity for things to go wrong — and when you know that, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to relax while the project is going ahead. So choose local. You’ll almost certainly come to believe that it’s the right choice!
