If you are a new business, or even a well established business, you know the importance of utilizing meaningful technology solutions to help your business grow. Many companies don’t prioritize improving their technology because they don’t have an in-house development team that can get the job done. We have seen several different companies and organizations decide to build a new technology department by building it from scratch - hiring new employees to fill some of these technology roles. Depending on the work that you do, this can be a good option…however, a lot of start ups don’t have the resources or even time to build a technology department from the ground up. If you find yourself in your business looking to implement some new technology solutions, need to redesign your site, or have a new idea to improve your business; hiring a software development company might be the perfect option for you! There are a number of reasons why agencies are a good avenue to consider.
If you currently don’t have a technology department or in house developers, it will take you a lot of time, money, and resources to build the processes needed to get your project or idea off the ground. Agencies can be incredibly efficient. When you hire a full service development company, that means you are hiring a wide pool of professionals- software developers, UI/UX designers, QA Engineers and even more. Most agencies use advanced and organized methodologies to manage each project they are working on. At Deep Space Robots, we use the SCRUM methodology in all of our projects. SCRUM allows transparency between our team and your team, and allows the project goals to move forward in an efficient manner, removing or addressing any roadblocks that can come up in the project. This is great for every kind of business - startups to small companies, to large and established companies, there will be no need to build new processes from scratch. Agencies provide stability and continuity!
When you think about all the additional benefits and HR resources you have to use to hire a new employee, those costs can add up! The beauty of partnering with an agency means that you can skip the HR onboarding, and get straight into your project!
Expand your horizons
It is incredibly common for teams to have “tunnel vision” when they are building new systems, products, or processes. When you work with an agency, you have a highly experienced team who can give you perspective on your project when it seems like you have leadership or other teammates who are divided on the best next step. In house employees will often have a one track mindset on how the new product should be built. This isn’t a bad thing, but when you work with a team of developers and designers who have worked on an array of different projects, they can provide solutions that will create more impact and more growth to your company.
Focus on your business
Web development is complex, and in this day and age, you can’t get away with a poorly designed or performing website. Of course, (when it comes to a website redesign) you can create a templated website through services like SquareSpace, but these services aren’t always as customizable as you want them to be. You could potentially end up spending more time and money if you try to do it yourself. For example, if you’re an entrepreneur that’s opening up a new restaurant concept, you have so many different responsibilities that are competing for your time. When you partner with an agency, this allows you to express specifically what your customers want and need, and then allow you to move on to other important business tasks and responsibilities.
Every business is different, and has their own needs. There are plenty of reasons why businesses hire in-house employees to tackle some of their technology solutions, but there are many reasons why working with an agency can be a better option. At an agency like Deep Space Robots, we work with a wide array of businesses and organizations. From non-profit organizations, to restaurants, to large corporations…we have spent the last 10 years building technology solutions for our clients that make an impact in their businesses and around the world.
