If your enterprise is looking to develop a mobile app in UAE or Saudi Arabia, then you may be asking yourself a few questions to decide how to go about doing it:
- 1Should you use in-house people for the project?
- 2Will a freelancer be a good idea for the project?
- 3Should you be hiring an outsourcing partner for the project?
Well, if these are questions that are bothering you, then the following post will prove to be helpful.
Using in-house resources for mobile app development
In the beginning, this may seem like the perfect option. And why not? All the work will be done under one roof right in front of you in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But there are a lot of other things to consider as well. It is true that all the data and information your enterprise is privy to remains with you if you choose this option, but there are certain disadvantages as well. The truth is that it can be expensive to build an in-house team for mobile app development, train it, maintain it and invest in all the tools and equipment required for the project. You will need mobile testing devices too which can be another pricey endeavor. Not only will you need developers, testers and designers for the project, you will also need to hire someone who can act as a supervisor on it.
Also, understand that mobile app development in UAE and Saudi Arabia is really not a one-time thing. In fact, it is a continuous process because the app will need to be updated and maintained. All this can become quite expensive if you want to manage it with in-house resources.
Using a freelancer for mobile app development
The best thing about hiring a freelancer for developing an app is the low costs involved. Since a freelancer will be working on his own or with a team of his, you can expect to be charged low. It is also easy to approach a freelancer. But it can come with certain risks. For instance, delays can be common when you work with a freelancer because they are the only ones working on your project.
Also, another thing you have to worry about is whether the freelancer you hire will ape your idea for a different client. What will you do then? The commitment a freelancer will have for your project can be lacking. Since they work for themselves, they are always looking for more profitable projects and if they get one while your project is on, you may be sidelined.
Using an outsourcing firm for mobile app development
The truth is that if you want to get quality work done on your mobile app idea, then the best thing for you to do would be to choose an outsourcing firm. What’s more, it will also save you money and time in the long run. With one of them, you will probably get an end to end services which will mean that you don’t have to bother your head about anything. Since you will be hiring a firm you can expect a team of experts to work on your project and deliver on time, so that your enterprise work does not get delayed in any manner. Nor will you have to invest in equipment or technology.
All the above options work well for certain people. The best thing for you to do would be to study your options and decide on one that suits your budget and requirements in the best way possible.
