The startup world consists of people who have brilliant ideas and make multiple attempts, yet just can’t start their business and make it successful. Why is it so?
Startups we describe in today’s blog stuck at some point due to a lack of knowledgeable staff who could have helped them implement their ideas technologically. And the secret strategy that worked for all of them is software outsourcing.
For a lot of companies, this concept may sound a bit scary. The process itself, time to build relationships, expenses may seem like main barriers, however, those who don’t listen to the lies in their heads know that software outsourcing/dedicated team approach reduces costs and impresses with quality.
What most people don’t know is that these 5 companies became successful with billions in revenue because of taking advantage of outsourcing.
Slack, a well-known workplace communication service, is a vivid example of an outsourcing app design. By deciding to opt for an outsourcing provider, the company obtained its logo, designs, as well as web and mobile app development, which now serve millions of users around the world. Their strategy of team augmentation has worked, as Slack is valued at $3 billion now.
Slack’s case of team externalization one more time testifies the variability of an outsourcing approach. It also shows that finding a talent team outside of your country isn’t just for support or bug fixing of the existing project, it is a wise strategy to be implemented in case you need to establish the vital pieces of your business.
