Solving the Challenges of Offshore Software Application Development

By Daniel Henry Jose

The arena of web is vast and universal. This global medium has reach that no one can fathom and expansion that no one can measure. The world is one without any boundaries of nation or language, thanks to the web development and web applications. They are creating brands that are global and have universal reach. They are holistic in terms of scalability, flexibility and user friendly performance.

As web applications continue to reach new horizons,there have been some drawbacks too. Generally web applications consist of planning (usually with client for model structuring a website), designing, development, testing and implementation of application. However, the maintenance costs, poor quality, poor designing or maintenance, configuration management and usability come forward.To resolve this, here are some points that should be taken into consideration for a trouble-free web experience with offshore software application development vendor.

Understanding the Requirements

Most problems occur because offered web development services are different from what clients expect or need. The solution to this problem is simple and straight forward- Listen and Understand. If you are an offshore website development company your work doubles up as in most cases either would you be dealing through phone or email with clients. The wide hiatus and deviation between the needs and delivery model can be fulfilled by smart working and smart understanding of objectives and purposes of business of client.

Also, the customer handling and website functioning is important; it does count in the web development services you provide. This builds up your reputation of hitting the bull's eye at one instant and providing customer satisfaction with excellence.

Internationalization and Localization

It is true that World Wide Web is universal. It binds the whole world into one. However, in the lust of being global, you as an offshore website development company should not forget that the local elements should not be forgotten to ensure long term success. Your web applications should support local language and cater to international visitors also. However, it should not highlight the cultural and regional differences.

Estimation of Pricing

The other significant roadblock in offshore web development services is the correct estimation of prices of the services. Clients visit offshore vendors because of high quality solutions and cost effective methodology. To maintain the credibility of your performance and services, it is recommended to opt transparency in operations and while quoting costs for the work.

Customer Satisfaction with Quality Solutions

Quality still rules and is mandatory in this all glitzy work. Thoroughly test and trouble shoot the application before launching and releasing it before launch. Proper verification and validation should be done to ensure proper performance of the software and web application. Compatibility issues with local or overseas issues should be tackled before implementing.


The result should match the expectations of your client. The web application should be post maintained keeping the market trends in the mind. Services and other maintenance should be guaranteed by you.
