Recession was a big blow for the IT sector and even today there are companies which are in the process of recovery or are facing worse situations. Recovery can be fastened with the use of business solutions which add more accuracy to the processes and speed the operations of the company. While companies understand this and want to develop a business solution they are always on the lookout of reasonably priced and high quality web development services.
With stakeholders demanding solutions which are cost effective it is becoming more difficult for offshore software development companies to provide web development services at low rates while competing with other outsourcing to India companies involved in providing web development services. Here are 5 different tools, technologies and ideas through which a web development company will be able to provide low cost web development services :
1) Grip the Basics : Speed in web development is the need of the hour but while going with speed it is also important that a web developer remains rooted to the basics of web development. This will help them easily ascertain areas where something has gone wrong as well as reduce dependence on web development tools which often lose accuracy in complex situations.
2) Use front end web development frameworks : Website development without coding is not possible and web development frameworks are meant to simplify coding. Less time is required for web development and so they make web development services cheaper.
3) Use back end web development frameworks : This is very much similar to the above point related to web development services with the only difference of their being front end and this being back end. Back end frameworks like Ruby on Rails and Python can make web development 10 to 20 times more productive and accurate.
4) Open source development : One of the most effective ways to cut cost on web development is to use open sources like PHP. A web development company using open source does not have to expend on software resources. Hence they can pass on the savings to stakeholders while providing web development services. Lot of new things are happening in the open source world. These advances aim to make web development easier and cost effective using open source platforms.
5) Lessen the gap between developers and designers : Web development services can be effective only when web developers and designers work collaboratively. If the balance is proper there are less chances of confusion and so better results in less time can be achieved.
By following abovementioned 5 steps to reduce cost of development it will be possible for any offshore software development company to provide better services at lesser costs. Offshore software development companies already have the advantage of lower costs and these tips can further lower their cost and help them make bigger profits providing web development services.
