India has been a preferred destination when it comes to mobile app development and Delhi has been the hub, where you can fine mobile app development companies in Noida, Gurgaon and other NCR region of the territory. Contractual resources are used by many enterprises, be it local companies in India or global enterprises. There are many IT companies and even system integrators who demonstrate strong competencies in mobile application development. The fact of the matter is that these are not core competencies of enterprises, hence, it is inevitable for them to hire a contractor who can cater to their requirement.
Let us take the case of a startup venture. For startups, their most critical factor to success is timely roll out of their product/solution. If we consider an idealistic situation, the startup has a dedicated team of developers in-house. However, in a realistic situation that is not the case. Startups are constantly striving to achieve a balance between capex investments and operating expenditures. Furthermore, due to budgetary constraints, they may not have the bandwidth of going for a full-time mobile application developer. Hence, they scout for external agencies or service providers who work as a natural extension of the client team to get the work executed. Furthermore, these developers are deployed at client locations for definite time period (usually the duration of the project) and once the work is over, the service provider can reallocate these developers to another assignment.
So why should any organization go for a contract based mobile application development. Let us look at some of the key advantages of this engagement model
- Cost Arbitrage
Hiring a full-time mobile application developer will increase the total cost of operations exponentially. Hence, to achieve significant cost benefit, organizations prefer to go for a contractual mobile application development service through a professional service provider
Even if enterprises have the team, they may not be able to leverage the team member to the maximum potential, because that is not their core competency. Hence, it is better to have a service provider who has the experience of building such solutions and they also house a strong team of mobile application developers across various technical skill sets. This way they can align the right development team for the specific requirement
- Focus on Core Business
Hiring a contractual developer will allow businesses to focus on their core areas and not get deviated into anything that is defined as “non-core”.
There are many channels through which you can hire a dedicated contract mobile application developer. You can contact your business counterparts or references who may have used a similar service in the past.
Another source is online portals. There are many portals such as Upwork, PeoplePerHour where you can hire developers. These portals are usually used when you are looking for freelancers.
Lastly, you can do a search on Google and find out companies who have specialized skills in the area of mobile application development. Go through the reviews and then approach the right company.
In either case, a thorough due diligence is to be done before you go ahead and select the right service provider.
