Why companies are choosing outsourced software development teams over internal or freelance talent

May 4, 2023

Are you facing the challenge of managing multiple development projects with a limited internal talent pool? The decision to either build an internal team or hire an external software development team can be a tough one. Let us help you navigate the pros and cons so you can make an informed decision for your business.


Creating an internal team from scratch can be a time-consuming and expensive process, especially when it comes to finding and hiring expert developers. By hiring an external team like SIGIT, you can leverage their expertise and experience without the hassle of building a team from scratch. The onboarding process is also much shorter, allowing you to focus on your processes and business while the external team handles the technical aspects.
Additionally, with an external team, you have access to a larger talent pool, which can help you find the right team for your specific needs. Most importantly, you have the ability to scale up or down quickly depending on the needs of the project.


When hiring an external software development team, you can expect high-quality coding on demand. At SIGIT, we prioritize top-notch code and ensure that nothing is overlooked.
Unlike freelancers, software development agencies rely heavily on references and their reputation, so you can be assured that outsourced teams will work hard on earning your trust and acknowledgment.
Additionally, unlike solo freelancers who may work on multiple projects simultaneously, a dedicated team will focus solely on your project.
When it comes to communication, let’s face it, open communication can even be an internal problem, but at SIGIT, we prioritize open communication to ensure that there are no blockers.


Hiring an external software development team is also more affordable for companies big or small since you will have reduced overhead costs compared to hiring full-time employees.
With an external team, you don't have to spend resources on hiring individuals, and there are almost no software/hardware costs. Especially if remote work options are not available, opening new offices can be expensive. Therefore, hiring outside support is a more cost-effective option, allowing you to allocate the extra finances to other areas of your business.
