Offshore Development Center is a common work model that is gaining more recognition from IT leaders and enterprises. This is considered an effective way of cost reduction and talent pool access.
Eastern Europe and Eastern Asia countries are the leading destinations for Offshore Development Center to thrive. Still, due to the technical preferences and regulations, this model no longer thrives in these regions. Besides, labor costs in these countries have exponentially increased in the past five years, leading to their clients having to look for ODC services somewhere else.
Among the emerging countries for Offshore Development Center service providers, Vietnam has stood out as a destination of competent tech workers and competitive costs.
In fact, Vietnam is a growing IT hub and has just crossed its nascent stage in recent years. In Vietnam, the regulations are very favorable for the development of the IT industry and foreign investors in this sector.
Hence, Vietnam still has much room for potential growth in the field of Information Technology in the future. Here, you can find world-renowned technology corporations who have worked with many big clients from around the world. Moreover, this development has paved the way for the founding of other mid-size or small-size service providers for a niche market with domain-specialized capabilities.
IT Labor cost in Vietnam
The first and foremost reason why Vietnam is suitable for Offshore Development Center setup is the competitive price. When compared to the labor cost in some major fields of IT of developed countries like the US, Singapore or Japan, the salary range in Vietnam is lower by 40-50%.
For example, the base salary for Software Developer in the US is approximately $9,528, while that of Vietnam’s market is around $3,811. This price gap repeats with many other IT positions such as Systems Architect, Cloud Engineer, Product Manager, Security Engineer, DevOps Engineer, Project Manager, etc.
Some might wonder whether these outsourced IT staff can perform as well as the in-house team, as for the fact that many believe high price comes with high quality.
When working with an Offshore Development Center, you can access a talent pool of competent IT staff. Especially with this work model, you interview them to hand-pick the most suitable talents for your work hub.
Thanks to geographical pricing, you can get equally good results with just half a price when implementing Offshore Development Center in your operation.
How do you communicate with non-native partners?
One of the major reasons why many businesses are hesitant with Offshore Development Center is the communication barriers, aka the language.
They fear that their employees won’t be able to communicate effectively with their clients that don’t speak the same language as they do. However, this is not the thing you should be worried about. In a technology-focused company, language has gained considerable attention. Many managerial roles have identified this as the focal point for more access to clients around the world. In Vietnam, English as a global language is somewhat a standard included in recruiting IT staff.
The communication and management platform is also applied for a more comprehensive way of keeping track of work and time.
Cloud project management tools such as Trello, or Asana is used. These tools can split your work into smaller tasks. For every task, staff can add details, deadlines, to-do lists, etc. Sharing files and calendars also can benefit employees working on the same project. This involves employees throughout the work process (better team morale) and ensures productivity (better work results).
BrSE and Comtor act as the connecting bridge between our client and us. These staff work with both parties for requirement and deadline clarifications to produce the best results.
