Offshore Software Development – What are the benefits for a Start-up?

Posted By Praveen Joshi on 14th August 2017

New start-ups in the technology sector face a host of challenges in order to get your idea off the ground. Whilst the strength of your idea is important, there are many other factors that you need to take into consideration in order to go from idea to viable proposition, to product which is ready for launch.

When you’re in the early stages of development, it’s important that you find the right technology partner – one who has both the manpower and skills to take your idea through to inception, whilst charging a price which is not going to break the bank. You also need to look into protecting the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of your idea – a process which can be lengthy and can make or break a business if not done properly. 

Further to this, you need to be able to create a minimum viable product, and you also need a partner who has the capabilities to scale the product once you start to grow and new users come on board.

When you start looking for solutions to these problems, it might be tempting to do it all yourself. However, an offshore software development partner could be exactly what you need. If you do decide to go down this route, something which we help many of our clients do, then it’s important that you pick an established partner who can support the technology of your choice, and who has a dedicated team with previous experience in that domain.

Choosing the right offshore software development company will provide you as a start-up with the complete infrastructure that you need to scale your project, all at minimum costs. This is one of the key reasons why many of established fintech and traveltech start-ups have chosen to take this route – offshore software development gives them all the power and capabilities they need, at a fraction of the cost. If you do go down this route, it’s vital that you ensure you have appropriate legal protection in place to safeguard the intellectual property rights of your start-up. Again, this is something that we can assist with.

We at RSK BSL, have been technical development partners for numerous start-ups, and have a wealth of experience in the delivery of Mobile Apps or Web Development projects. We can work under English legislations to protect the intellectual property rights of all the start-ups which we support. For further details and to find out how we could help you, click here.
