Be it a freelancer or a web development company, there is a lot of doubts and questions which is associated with outsourcing of web designs. For a freelancer, the decision needs to be taken by himself all alone, but in case of a company things get all the more complex. Outsourcing web design, as a topic has always been controversial and questionable. But then, the fact is that no matter how much wary people maybe of outsourcing, the benefits of doing so greatly outnumber the disadvantages related to the same.
Now, it is but obvious that not everybody has the same skill sets and expertise in all fields. Some people might excel in one field, which the other set of people might not be comfortable with. At times, when the website owners have no time to work on the designs themselves, professional help is needed automatically. Particularly, outsourcing web design is something which is needed when there is some lack of time and expert skills are needed for temporary needs.
Now, there are certain things which must always be kept in mind while outsourcing web design. They go as follows:
1. Time Cultures & Geographic Zones
As a priority, teams need to work a shift within flexible timings and according to the time zones. That is because, different places celebrate different sets of holidays. People sitting at one part of the world, might not just co-ordinate with the ones sitting in another part of the world altogether. But then, that must not affect the business to put it straight. Excuses, are not acceptable in places where lakhs and crores of rupees and being dealt with on a daily basis. Hence, it is recommended for anybody to discuss the list of holidays beforehand, and only then decide on the further course of action.
2. Project Management and Speaking Up One’s Mind
One of the pre-requisites before outsourcing web designs is the work of the manager where he oversees all the movements related to the business. Customer inputs are always valuable. So, speaking the mind in situations where it is going to be taken as a feedback is always worth it.
Speaking up allows the management to know in case the customers dissatisfied with the services, so that it can be improved accordingly. Also, solutions can be derived from the same when the common complaints are put together, to form one concrete solution.
3. Service Level Agreements
Outsourcing needs SLA’s. Meaning, documents which shall guarantee some transparency as per every term and condition elaborated to the tiniest detail possible. Apart from the signed documents, SLA’s also include other factors like the quality of the services provided and the others.
So, it is recommended to the prospective customers to firstly look up the works on the website, and only then decide on the template required to make the service level agreements. When something as delicate and highly debated as outsourcing a website is chosen, then the website really needs to match up to the standards.
4.Knowing What Is Really Needed
One of the basic aspects of web designing is to firstly know what kind of web development tasks are required to run the business and then approach each of them strategically. One must be sure of what is really needed before stepping the foot right in; else the day shall be nothing more than a waste of time. Different companies are involved in different kind of tasks. Some specialise in mobile development, while some companies deal with a different domain altogether. The need of the hour is to do some homework and research for one’s won and find the best from amongst the same.
5.Communication Is Important
In order to keep all the employees on the same page, it is required that communication is done most effectively. A mismatch shall actually cause loses which is not going to be acceptable in the long run, and no amount of excuses shall make up for the time already lost. With the growing technology and HR, the turnaround time needs to be minimised. So, keeping all mum shall not help but shall lead to escalations. It is rightly said that “history has always been created by people who have been able to convey their emotions properly and appropriately”.
