In a time when businesses are driven to solve problems with technology, and do it quickly, digital transformation is necessary. As a part of evolution, growth and modernization, a company must embrace the need for increasingly integrated and complex digital technology to help them manage the changing business landscape – addressing new business processes, focusing on customer needs and experiences, pivoting with changing organizational structures, and cultivating a new sense of company culture and identity. Technology partners provide a viable solution for growing companies.
Why have your software built by a third party?
Businesses are looking to grow with the ability to scale quickly and gain a competitive advantage. This creates a burden for internal teams as they keep up with projects, deadlines and budgets. Where are the hours coming from to conceive, develop and deliver solutions? Who is staying focused on your core business strategy? Who is ensuring the quality and effectiveness of your software solution? Simply put, a third-party software specialist addresses three issues: time, quality, and cost.
The one thing that no one has enough of, and you can never get back. Companies can mitigate some of the impact time has on a project by decreasing the time from concept to delivery. An end-to-end process solution gives your team more of their valuable time to commit to their primary business responsibilities.
By employing a team of experts, companies will leverage a faster development process. From discovery through solution planning, there is a quicker delivery time to market. Providing a Minimally Viable Product (MVP) with a more efficient process allows for two things; The solution is delivered and usable on a shorter timeline and the company realizes a quicker turn-round on strategic feedback – allowing them to measure if they made the right decision, designed the right tool, and delivered it at the right time.
The quality provided by a third-party solution developer starts well before the product delivery. A good partner will give companies insight into trends and tech that are driving growth as a part of the discovery and planning stages; insights that they would not otherwise have access to. Following, it would be unaffordable for the company to employ the level of expertise provided by their partners. A third-party provides the best-in-market talent required to execute the project in an effort that is not just timely and meaningful, but also affordable and trustworthy.
With industry specialists involved from the beginning, assessing and developing a strategy for a solution, companies will have a product expertly tailored for their specific need. Additionally, technology partners harness specialized skillsets and relationships to provide solutions with easier integration and less maintenance than possible with internal development.
When a company plans for a specific solution to meet a specific need, managing the budget and projected cost can be very difficult. Third party technology partners provide the hours and manpower to focus on the project at hand, without the distractions and burdens of an internal team stretched thin. This not only drives down cost by avoiding having to hire and budget for the positions involved but provides cost savings in efficiencies. Less development time means less time and money spent and quicker time to market. Quicker turnaround also impacts short- and long-term tech strategy and effective delivery – producing an MVP for quicker and more effective end-user engagement providing actionable insights and a look at ROI much sooner.
By trusting your software project to a third-party partner, you can harness the power of technology specialists to manage a successful digital transformation with ease and confidence.
