Offshore outsourcing challenges
Cultural gap, language problems, wage inflation, turnover, many reasons can sometimes happen to make an offshore outsourcing operation a less positive financial picture than expected.
Other reasons for disapointing IT outsourcing projects may also lie in the provider and the client’s own failures. There are many decisions to make and issues to address when making the move. Because successfull remote project management is very demanding from both sides and requires a lot of discipline and preparation to avoid problems such as lack of transparency and communication, especially in a long-distance context.
The european reshoring alternative
Before considering relocating failed outsourced IT operations back in-house and risking the consequences of a loss of flexibility, lack of qualified workers or skyrocketing payroll, business managers should look ahead to nearshore alternatives, either in Eastern Europe or even in their homeland (domestic sub-contracting in Western Europe or North America). It is all about finding the best balance between cost, quality, innovation ability, time-to-market and global competitiveness.

Working with Pentalog helped us significantly, they responded really well to the urgency of the situation. After just one week we had found a qualified freelancer to undertake our mission. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the selection and administration process, so that the mission could run as smoothly as possible.
We were convinced by Pentalog’s approach: advice from a CTO to help us architect our solution, 2 freelancers and support to find funding. In addition, we were seduced by the price of courses but especially by the implementation time: 2 months instead of 5 or 6 months if we were on a development from scratch.
Working with Pentalog is very reassuring. As their CTO had worked with us on prior improvements to the app, I didn’t think twice about calling on them again when I found out that the first developer was unavailable. Four days later they had found someone equally competent and we didn’t have to worry about the admin side of things. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the mission from start to finish, to make sure it ran as smoothly as possible.
