There are lots of reasons why people do not really consider outsourcing as an option and probably number one on their list is the thought that they are going to lose control over a project or that they are going to somehow lose security in some way over work done with their client. They might also feel the choice of provider might be a bad one and they just end up with work that does not meet their high standards. All valid points unless you form a really good relationship with the outsourcing supplier and have a good level of trust going both ways between the two parties. There are a lot of plus points however and reading this list might just convince you to try outsourcing and not lose an order because you have not got enough available resources to deliver a product on time.
By outsourcing you make sure continuity in development work. If you lose a member of staff because he moves on in a career path or is on extended leave or for whatever reason it is often difficult to replace key workers at brief notice. Outsourcing specialist companies usually have multi skilled staff that can create spare capacity to cover other functions and so the other parts of the team will be up and running again seamlessly.
Tools for the job

Just a few points to consider when thinking about taking a decision whether to outsource a project or not. It’s never an easy decision to make and the best advice is to talk to a few companies willing to take on this kind of work and formulate an opinion with some expert advice.
