First of all, it is important to know the difference between outsourcing and outstaffing. Outsourcing is where your development partner will work on the project. You rarely have access to the development team itself, and they are responsible for the project. Developers can work on more than one project at a time (depending on agreements made).

Outstaffing is a form of remote collaboration with a hired development team. In fact, it is a form of staff augmentation. New team members do all the tasks for your company, yet are officially hired by another company (development partner). As the latter acts as the employer and is therefore responsible for the salary, bonuses, and equipment provided to the employee. Meanwhile, you as the customer assign tasks and orders to the developer.

There are many different models of partnership with a software vendor to choose from, where increasing the workforce and hiring a dedicated team of experts are considered to be among the most popular.


Staff augmentation is a type of outsourcing service in which the software company provides its engineers in the form of external hiring, usually on a time and materials contract basis.

In practice, the outsourcer’s internal team is expanded with outside specialists (or composed solely of them) working on the buyer’s premises for the duration of the project.

By augmenting the staff, companies reduce costs associated with staffing, payroll, and project implementation. This model is also easily scalable – it is much easier to break such a partnership than to terminate an employment contract, so you can quickly reduce (or increase it) if necessary.

Furthermore, that full responsibility shift reduces formalities involving human resources, employment – which allows the outsourcer to focus more on the core business.


This type of outsourcing refers to a partnership with a remote software development company, outsourcing a project to its team of programmers.

Generally, it is a far more extensive partnership than just team expansion, as it also covers a wide range of software-related services, such as analysis, design, UI / UX design, quality assurance, project management or support, maintenance.
