Outsourcing work approaches: Custom Remote Team

A custom remote team is a software development outsourcing approach whereby the provider, after developing a deep understanding of the customer’s specific needs, forms a hand-picked team of developers, managers, testers and designers whose skill-set is a perfect match with those needs. This specialized team works as a natural extension of the customer’s local staff, putting their expertise at the customer’s disposal. Such teams often become acutely familiar with the customer’s goals, business values and corporate philosophy, since they can work together for months or even years. This approach requires the customer’s involvement at the project’s outset in order to ensure a strong bond is forged between the customer and the custom remote team.

In many years of experience, the Custom Remote Team approach has proven to be the most effective way for existing businesses and large tech ventures to outsource IT projects and fund them with raised capital. There are several advantages to employing a Custom Remote Team. For instance:

  • Since each team member possesses industry/technology-specific expertise, a Custom Remote Team quickly becomes a natural extension of the client’s internal team. By leveraging its specific experience in the client’s industry, a Custom Remote Team provided by an Offshore Development Center can add value to the client’s business metrics by offering keen insights on how to design a new solution or improve upon an existing one, as well as make suggestions on best practices.
  • A Custom Remote Team’s developers have accrued expertise in multiple industries, and some may be more knowledgeable in certain fields than others. This makes it easy for the provider and the customer to handpick a development team that’s a perfect fit for the client’s industry. This flexibility equates to a more efficient, less expensive development plan, and stronger provider-client relations.
  • Opting for a Custom Remote Team ensures peace of mind when it comes to estimating your monthly IT expenditures. This is because you can treat the Custom Remote Team members as if they were your own employees, and pay them a “salary” from a fixed monthly budget.
  • When you hire a Custom Remote Team, the upside is not that you’re buying a certain number of “outsourcing development hours”. Rather, it’s the team’s collective expertise and the harmony in which they work that compels the “reason for purchase”.

Since a Custom Remote Team already possesses considerable experience in the client’s industry and can therefore provide the kind of “product sourcing advantages” that would be impossible for an uninformed partner to access, a clear “path of understanding” is swiftly created between the client and the Team. Moreover, the Custom Remote Team is fully aware of the customer’s main business metrics from the outset, and is solely focused on delivering optimum value and money-saving opportunities. From a developer’s point of view, already being familiar with a customer’s business metrics means increased productivity, since the developer already understands the value of their software coding and the cost of any mistakes or oversights. The Custom Remote Team approach represents risk-sharing between two parties at its most efficient and effective!
