When searching for a software development partner, you’ll find that there are two main camps: those that employ in-house developers and those that contract overseas developers. While a difference in price is undoubtedly the first thing that comes to mind, there are also a variety of other factors to consider when deciding which sort of arrangement is a better fit for you.
Here at AppIt Ventures, we intentionally built our business around providing world-class customer service, reducing project risk, and delivering quality code at a reasonable price. To execute on these initiatives, we created a hybrid between US-based and overseas development that effectively eliminates many of the pitfalls of going with one over the other. We leverage our US-based tech consultants, architects and project managers to design a solution in a way that minimizes risk for our clients, while providing world-class service and the availability of a local resource. The bulk of our development is done by our team based in Hyderabad so that we can offer our clients the best possible price for their project. We are proud of how our devoted teams collaborate to deliver quality code on time for every project.
Our entire team, spanning both Hyderabad and Denver, is comprised exclusively of AppIt employees. All of our project managers, technical consultants, architects, and account executives are here in Denver, Colorado and will draw upon their extensive experience to help you clearly define the outcome you’re driving toward, make a plan to bring it to life with technology, and effectively convey that vision to our development team.
While the bulk of our developers are in Hyderabad, we also have app developers in our Denver office in case your project requires a certain security clearance that someone working overseas is unable to obtain or to jump in on an urgent matter that needs immediate attention. These are your primary points of contact and they’re available when you are.
By employing rather than contracting our developers in Hyderabad, we are able to make sure that we maintain consistency throughout our organization. We all undergo the same technology and company culture training, we uphold all of the same values, including transparency and accountability, and we use the same tool sets and communication methods to bring us together as a cohesive unit, allowing us to work seamlessly as a team. We share the same priorities, and can effectively shift around resources to help accommodate any unexpected hurdles that may arise because there aren’t any competing interests within our company. Our autonomy affords us flexibility that can be passed down to our clients.
At AppIt, we fervently believe that diverse teams are the strongest teams. Varied viewpoints, all brought to the table and discussed amongst the team, enable us to examine and present the very best ideas. Daily, our teams exchange ideas and teach each other the latest coding conventions and new skills that they’ve picked up. Best practices rise to the top, allowing us to do better work for our clients across the board.
Finally, our Hyderabad office works shifted hours so that the end of their workday overlaps with the beginning of ours. This gives us time to collaborate and discuss ongoing projects, while also giving the development team precious, uninterrupted stretches to do the bulk of their work. Additionally, it provides our clients with an opportunity to speak directly to the Hyderabad-based development team lead assigned to their project if they so desire.
Bringing a compelling return on investment to our clients is our number one goal, and to do that we have to carefully manage cost. Our unique business structure ensures that we don’t have to sacrifice quality to get you there. We reduce risk to our clients by leveraging the accessibility and familiarity of a local delivery team along with the reduced costs of an expert Hyderabad development squad. The outcome is a world-class application at a fraction of the typical cost. THAT is the AppIt advantage!
