Remotown's Ultimate Guide to IT Outstaffing:
Your Questions Answered

Welcome to Remotown’s FAQ section! Here, we’ll shed light on the world of IT outstaffing services, breaking down everything you need to know. So, sit back, relax, and let’s get your questions answered!

IT outstaffing is when a company, like Remotown, provides highly qualified IT professionals to work on a project or within a company's team on a long-term basis. It's like having an extended team member without the hassle of hiring and onboarding. Outstaffing allows businesses to access top-notch talent while keeping their core team lean and agile.

Good question! While both outstaffing and outsourcing involve working with external professionals, they have their differences. With outsourcing, you contract an entire project to another company that takes full responsibility for its completion. Outstaffing, on the other hand, is more like renting skilled professionals who become part of your team, working hand-in-hand with you to achieve your goals. Basically, the outstaffee is a member of your company, just without the ordinary attachment.

There's a lot to love about IT outstaffing! Some of the perks include:

  • Access to a broader talent pool
  • Cost savings (say goodbye to recruitment and HR expenses)
  • Flexibility to scale your team up or down
  • Focusing on core business activities
  • Cross-cultural collaboration, bringing fresh perspectives

Nothing's perfect, and IT outstaffing has its drawbacks, such as:

  • Possible communication challenges
  • Time zone differences (though this can be managed very well)
  • Potential cultural and language barriers (but that's where Remotown steps in)

Sure thing! Here are a few examples:

  • A software development company outstaffs a team of developers to work on a new mobile app
  • A tech startup brings in a remote UX/UI designer to revamp their website
  • An e-commerce business hires an outstaffed data analyst to optimize their sales strategy

You might want to think about IT outstaffing when:

  • Your in-house team is stretched thin
  • You need specific expertise that's hard to find locally
  • You want to save on hiring and recruitment costs
  • You're looking to expand your team, but not permanently
  • You find your self in a skilled expert shortage

Fear not! Outstaffing can actually be a boon for your existing team. It allows them to focus on their core responsibilities while gaining exposure to new skills and ideas from the outstaffed professionals.
