Over the last few years, it has become more and more important that your business has an app. Apps allow customers to learn more about your company, pay bills, update contact information, buy your goods and services, and most importantly, to feel more connected to your business. Australians have long been sending aspects of their businesses offshore, especially administration and customer service tasks. But one industry that has continued to increase their offshoring, is the app development industry. Labour is often so much cheaper in countries like India and the Philippines, that it can be easy to make the decision to outsource. These offshore agencies also often have a reputation for producing results quickly, so when you’re looking at time and budget constraints, they can seem the obvious choice. However it’s important to remember that when it comes to software and app development, you do indeed get what you pay for. Taking your app development offshore can mean you lose a significant amount of control, and due to cultural and language restraints, it can often take a considerable amount of time for an overseas agency to completely understand what you’re looking for. It’s also not uncommon for Australian businesses to end up spending more in the long run, as they fix substandard outcomes. Another issue is data security, and by handing over information to an overseas company, you could be at risk for data leaks-something that is 31% more likely to happen if you use an overseas company, compared to an Australia software development company. When it comes to designing and developing an app for your business, stay local, and ensure that the result is correct first time. If you’re located in Western Australia, do yourself a favour and hire software developers in Perth.
