4 Questions you should ask yourself when looking for a software development partner
If you are a VP of systems, Product Owner, CEO, Recruiting Manager, or IT Consultant who wants to Outsource in Argentina you are in the right place.
Probably you should consider two main factors before going out to outsource: the budget you have and recommendations on b2b sites that show the reputation, ranking, and reviews of companies in the sector such as Clutch, Goodfirms, or Designrush

However, if you are an IT manager of a company, you know that there are many other considerations to take into account.
Here are four key questions that may inspire you while selecting a technology partner:
1- Is their development process compatible with mine?
It is essential to talk about the process and make sure you understand it in the same way. Don’t stop at the single work methodology points that the hiring company uses as Agile or Scrum. Be sure you ask some detailed questions about it: What are the responsibilities of each team member? Who’s taking care of quality assurance? Who’s responsible for preparing documentation? What’s my role, as the client, in this process?
Exchanging that knowledge with the supplier, especially when we’re talking about a long-term partner, means one very important: you can use some of their expertise to improve your existing processes. It’s a win-win situation.
Another main factor to take into account is your in-house team. Are the cultures of both teams compatible? Time zone? Do we speak the same language? You can learn more in this article about 7 advantages of Nearshore Software development.
2- Does my budget fit the need for outsourcing?
Try to gather as much data as possible about what you are getting for the price you are asking, especially if you are looking for a long-term development partner. It is important to consider the working time, cost per hour, and the number of team members dedicated to your project.
Also, you might consider the needs from the beginning. It will not be the same price if you require a canned product or standard products.
