When companies first think about finding a partner for new software development or for help in ongoing enhancements, they will often think of offshore teams. After all, offshore development often is viewed as costing less than hiring teams who are onshore. Sometimes that’s true, but more often than not, there are hidden costs companies don’t consider until it’s too late. Let’s look over the top five reasons why our “Lakeshore” model beats offshore — hands down.

1. Strategic IT Partnership – You have goals and you know where you want to take your company. However, you might not know exactly how to get there.

Have you been considering your options for outsourcing your IT and software development to an offshore agency? At first blush, it might seem like overseas developers are the way to go. They can have attractive hourly rates and their teams are often just as skilled as developers here in the United States.

Many companies (maybe even yours) have reached the tipping point in their IT organization and current systems architecture. The IT workforce can no longer keep up with the growing workload and demands from the business. CIOs who hadn’t before are now thinking about turning to outsourcing for help. The challenge with offshore — and even other onshore companies — typically boils down to a single issue: thinking strategically about their long-term needs, and how to sustain their technology enterprise over time.

Getting help is one thing, but if you’re not thinking of that help with a longer-term strategic objective in mind, the new system built today with short term help cannot be supported tomorrow with your employee workforce. Furthermore, by not thinking strategically about how to add capability and capacity to your organization, it can mean a loss of valuable intellectual property and even a hit in your profitability down the line.
