A majority of companies are scared of outsourcing and of using offshore software development. Sending a crucial piece of your company’s success 1000’s of miles away seems a lot like sending your child across the world and hoping for the best. I get it, it’s scary. But if you do your research and follow suit of the success stories, why not take a leap of faith and grow your business exponentially?
Now, I wouldn’t exactly suggest buying a one-way ticket for your child just yet, but perhaps if he/she were in college or recently graduated, sending them abroad to a safe and conducive place for learning and cultural experience wouldn’t be so bad after all? But what is most important is prior to this decision comes your research in determining why other companies chose to outsource to Romania and how they were successful.
Yummly Scores Huge Success with App Development Outsourcing to Romania
Founder and CEO of Yummly, David Feller, was not afraid of taking the leap into offshore development. In fact, after going through several failed attempts, Feller decided to take his failures as learning opportunities and keep trying to find the right fit. He even states,
“Traditional outsourcing is very problematic… You have to define a project down to the most minute details, and even then what you get back is poor quality and not what you specified.”
However, with the mobile app market growing exponentially and Yummly’s food and recipe website in desperate need of keeping up with client needs and expectations, Feller knew he had to develop an app. This time, he chose to take his offshore services to Romania, a place that promised quality development, great communication, and of course cost reduction when compared to US services. Sure enough, Feller’s decision paid huge dividends, leading Yummly’s app to be ranked first in their category, downloaded by over 8 million users, and recognized as one of Apple’s “App Store Best of 2014” – which has only reinforced the company as the leader of their industry.

Feller attributes his ultimate decision to offshore to Romania and its ongoing success to the development team in Romania which acted as, “A seamless extension to our team – people who were capable of thinking creatively to solve complex problems.” It just goes to show that cost savings is not the only reason to offshore software development.
