Most of the offshore development centers can be viewed as a virtual extension of the development teams of the outsourcer, however a business might also hire an offshore team, not having IT specialists in-house.
Over the years many business development centers have collected a knowledge-based network of professionals who provide high quality services to the customers.
The offshore development centers often use a multi-dimensional approach to each client, supporting the growth and development of the business and creating solutions in a most productive and effective manner.
One of the reasons why more and more businesses turn to offshore development centers is that they usually possess a pool of high-tech infrastructure, highly professional staff. Sometimes they can even provide absolutely unique specialists, not existing in many countries because the field of specialization is very new.
One more benefit, which customers of offshore development centers usually get is the ability to reduce the operation costs of the business. This often happens in such countries as India, because they are countries with not so well-developed economies and lower average wages.
On the other hand you get highly dedicated employees, who long to work at the offshore development centers, which pay more than other businesses locally. The benefit is bilateral, and highly beneficial for both parties.
As long as numerous offshore development centers are located in different parts of the world, an outsourcer can choose a country and the center which will best suit the time needs of the business and may often create a 24-hour working environment, involving the resources of his and their own company.
Also, several development centers have created offices in several parts of the world, providing more comfort and security to the outsourcers.
