Outsourcing your SharePoint Development. Is more than just saving money


SharePoint is being adopted worldwide by companies to centralise knowledge and improve collaboration, and as we have discussed in other posts, the successful implementation of SharePoint can really transform your business.

Microsoft SharePoint includes a wide range of business functions that can improve any business and transform it into a model of collaboration, speed and efficiency. Content management, real-time editing, custom workflows, scalability and apps integration… In short, an enterprise-level social networking combined with document management, workflow management, cloud storage, and enterprise search. All working together in perfect harmony. A system built to enhance business collaboration that certainly encourages a more streamlined way of sharing information and getting tasks done efficiently.

With SharePoint you can share documents, update your activity feed and keep in touch using your mobile phone or any other device. In short, you can organise easily your projects and teams. On The Go.

However, one of the most recurrent arguments against outsourcing any service is that it would cost more to pay someone else to do it than it will cost to hire an in-house member, but if we think carefully, we outsource almost every other service: company cars are not serviced by an in-house mechanic, company health care is not provided by an in-house doctor, just to exemplify. So why would our IT do this?

Actually, most of the times outsourcing your development can reduce your costs and help you save both time and money. A lot of time and money. Think about this: do you really need to spend that much, or would outsourcing allow you to use those funds where they are needed most?

And although you are heavily dependent on your IT systems to run your business, sometimes you can’t justify a full-time, in-house employee, to know everything about every technology. This means there are no experts always available if you have a critical failure, and that’s when outsourcing becomes important (have a team when you need it).

Using outsourced development means you always have a team of experts on call. They can come up with solutions to complement and development your own internal IT staff. Furthermore, unlike an in-house team, an outsourced SharePoint development provider is at the forefront of SharePoint. They will also have access to additional services and solutions.
