High Hourly Cost
Onshore outsourcing especially can be an expensive affair; per-hour fees can be $67-$150 an hour, or more for obscure talent or expensive enterprise software. The risk of projects costing double or even triple what was originally budgeted is a distinct possibility, especially if the project hits a snag in development.
With offshore outsourcing, the per-hour pricing is good… but communication often isn’t. So work that should only be done once might have to be done two or three times, causing delays, rework, and extra expense.
With Aptude Nearshore Software Developers, this risk is reduced because developers speak English and work in the same time zone, so delays and miscommunication is less frequent. Yet the costs are comparable to offshore, which means that you are more likely to stay on time and in budget with nearshore resources.
