Hiring an off-shore software developer has always been a tough call for outsourcing companies situated in the west. The west has remained a little skeptical and clouded by uncertainties related to the output quality, deadlines and communication gaps pertaining to off-shore development companies. Many off-shore companies which are successful today have overcome these challenges by recruiting individuals with great technical and communications skills.
Fixed price hiring renders a software development team to wrap up a project within the specified budget and during development it so happens that the outsourcing companies often come up with changes that requires developers to overwork. At times when the changes are huge or, if the price is too thin, developers pressured to meet deadlines, complete a project while compromising on quality. This leads to development of a poor application and enraged clients in the end.
