Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between staff augmentation vs. managed services?
The core difference between IT staff augmentation and managed services (also known as outsourcing) lies in the final project outcome. IT staff augmentation is the utilization of the professionals that augment your internal house development team and perform some specific assignments on a temporary basis outside your organization. With IT staff augmentation, you receive the required tech resources and expertise with their committed working hours. On the other hand, the whole management process is on your side. Basically, IT staff augmentation is used by those who are interested in outsourcing a specific tech task and/or functionality. The outsourcing model is a provision of IT outsourcing services focused completely on the solution, problem, or project basis.
What are the benefits of IT staff augmentation from a trusted software development company?
Once you turn to IT staff augmentation, you will get value from time and costs saved, as well as business and legal support. With good IT augmentation services, it is possible to cut costs on IT expenditures without sacrificing quality. As well, this route can provide you with the skills you need the most. Just consider the fact that if you need an expert for a small but critical task for a few months, a permanent hire will be less cost-effective. Salary, perks, taxes, insurance fees, and related expenses are required to keep even a single full-time worker. The hiring of augmented staff makes engaging new specialized team members easier without a costly and long-term commitment. In this way, through augmentation, MLSDev will help you find the proper candidate based on your exact staff augmentation requirements and complete the entire employment process. As a result, you can confidently assign tasks related to custom software development to these trained professionals at your disposal. This allows you to focus on the core business activities while our team takes care of the candidate (vacations, training, development plans), pays taxes, and handles bookkeeping. Simultaneously, IT staff augmentation provides you with full control over the management of the selected professionals. You will receive the necessary tech capabilities to complete your tasks and projects successfully. This makes the development process quick and easy for you since you can scale or update the development team effortlessly compared to hiring personnel in-house. As well, you can receive a new, unbiased outlook on the project, as well as additional recommendations and potential improvement once you choose IT staff augmentation.
How do I choose the proper specialist for IT staff augmentation?
To hire the proper specialists (developer, designer, business analyst, etc.), it is necessary to check out the technical skills and capabilities, knowledge of software development tools, frameworks, etc. Check their number of years in the profession and what projects they have previously completed. It is necessary to check out the communication, soft skills, and level of English once you decide to search for IT staff augmentation. If you are thinking of applying for IT staff augmentation from a remote software company, you need to check into the company's website, presence online, references from their clients, their portfolio, as well as how they organize their SDLC, practices they use, their team size, and company structure.
Why is Eastern Europe the best destination for IT staff augmentation these days?
Eastern Europe, specifically Ukraine, is the primary destination to search for experienced technology outsourcing providers and IT staff augmentation services. Ukraine attracts clients with favorable rates (average rates - $30-$60/hour, which can save anywhere from 20% to 60% of your budget), taxation benefits, and access to a pool of 170,000 tech engineers with an annually growing number due to high-quality tech education. In contrast, you can compare the rates for the services in the US. The average rates to hire capable professionals range from $70 to $150 per hour. This means that the average total cost of building a very basic app is around $100,000+. Thus, if you go for IT staff augmentation from Ukraine, you could save from 20% and up to 60%-70% of your budget while obtaining great tech expertise and high quality services. All of this makes Eastern Europe, and Ukraine in particular, a very appealing region to search for IT staff augmentation services.
