Salesforce Outsourcing: Offshore Versus Domestic
More than just a CRM, Salesforce is a marketing and customer relations’ development platform, which you can customize to your needs. The AppExchange has an impressive library of pre-built apps that can do just about anything. This is its key strength and the most common reason to use it. However, the apps may not work effectively in your situation. When that happens, you must build your own. This is great if your IT staff has the resources. If they do not, you must consider outsourcing your Salesforce development.
Even after deciding on outsourcing, you still have more choices to make. You can hire a domestic developer, or you can go offshore. Each route has its pros and cons with the difference coming down to how much risk you are willing to accept.

Going local has its advantages. You can meet your developer in person, for instance. They can even stop by your office so they can perfectly figure out your expectations and needs, alleviate any missed deadlines, unnecessary code revisions, and other mishaps. However, you must pay for those benefits. While some may say the price is worth it, you can get the same benefits elsewhere if you look.
