In a very short time, we’ve observed such a quick adoption of virtual applications in the need of remote working since most companies send employees to work from home due to the incredible spread of the pandemic. Face to face interaction in businesses is restricted and replaced by online platforms, as obviously, the lockdown stops businesses from operation. The need of digital transformation has never been so imperative. Apparently, coronavirus is a forceful push for companies to rapidly adopt technology in the industrial 4th revolution.

Since the demand of technology is rocketing, resources in the challenging time are restricted, software outsourcing is such a smart move for business to quickly adapt with the situation and advance the challenge to change the game.

As mentioned above, as the virus has not seemed to be under control, lockdown and social distancing are happening all over the world. If staying in the traditional business model without adopting digitalization, the companies would be left behind due to the downturn of the economy and failure of resource management. We have seen a shift from offline to online operation in most industries. The coronavirus outbreak has promptly spiked the demand for online shopping, digital payments, e-commerce, digital healthcare solutions, and collaborative applications for remote studying and working. According to predictions of economic professionals, the online business is happening during the Covid and would not stop afterward, by virtue of its advantages such as convenience, time-saving, standardization, and so on…,which are changing consumer behaviors

Early embracing digitization leads companies to escalate the business efficiency by boosting productivity, reducing operating cost, enhancing customer experience and facilitating the internal integration. And software outsourcing is an appropriate way for companies to gain digital transformation in the shortest time.

In fact, it has never been seen in the history that teleworking becomes so common. Most companies have to send employees to work from home. Apparently, remote working requires complicated management to secure productivity and efficiency. Therefore, collaborating with a software outsourcing development team in this toughness assists businesses in managing the technical team while keeping expectations on high quality deployment and punctual delivery.

Besides, recruiting a quality team for short term technical projects in this period is arduous and wasting. Instead of spending time and effort to seek for talents, partnering up with an outsourcer allows companies to reach a pool of experienced engineers that can develop and speed up deployment of software projects.

Moreover, digital healthcare solutions such as telemedicine-enabled home care, after lockdowns had to be imposed to manage the spread of the virus since asymptomatic carriers could be drivers of transmission. As a protective shield for healthcare providers against coronavirus, cloud-based telemedicine software is expected to retain its sheen and relevance in the post-COVID-19 world.

Technology is evolving with incredible pace, which challenges companies to swiftly adapt the new invention. Of course, companies are able to develop themselves, but the development requires huge effort. Still, the hardship during Covid crisis has led companies to multiple obstacles, which requires leaders to stay focused on business solutions to maintain and develop the company. Partnering up with a software outsourcing team enables companies to accelerate innovation while avoid paying too much attention to technology. Moreover, the perception around software outsourcing companies would change from just ‘developers on hire’ to ‘strategic partners’ that can help grow business and enhance the brand reputation, especially with experienced tech hubs like Vietnam.

In fact, the average hourly rate for hiring a senior software developer in the US is $100 - $170, a developer with similar experience and technical skills can be hired for $40 in Asia. Offshore software development rates in Asia’s tech hubs like Vietnam are even lower than the average price point offered by the IT vendors in Eastern Europe.

Moreover, outsourcing allows companies to cut other fees of the employee management process like recruitment, insurance, and bonus. Outsourcing is a go-to solution when it comes to cost reduction, it still remains to be the reason during this distressing time.
