    How to outsource company projects to outside freelancer? Is it safe to outsource?

    We are small software company and deal with Retail software. Recently we have got proposal of some 50 retail shops to create the software. As it is huge project and we have only 5 software developers. Our boss is planning to outsource it to some freelancer. We are also afraid of various frauds that are happening. Can anybody tell us how to outsource company projects to outside freelancer? And what are precautions that we should take?

    Hi Friend,
    Better way would be to hire the freelancer on contract basis in the project and along with your 5 team members you can deliver the project.
    As he is skilled on that area he would be able to train and lead your team members so that your company can meet delivery timelines.This will be more safer option and you will be able to meet project delivery timeline and company will get better profit than outsourcing the project.
    Hope your boss is trying to outsource the project feeling uncertainty to deliver it on time with minimum resources and current skills you have in your team.
    Please regain his confidence by speaking to him politely with above ideas. If you are able to justify and would be able to show that you guys can deliver it on time with few contractors (which should not be expensive than outsourcing it) then he will appreciate iit as end of day it will be more profit for company.

    Hi,
    Out sourcing to free lancers is not advisable in your case. Instead hire free lancers for a particular period. As they already know software developement for retail shops. It is to you people to train them with your requirements and by this way you can meet your time line decided by client.

    Convince your manager and build confidence in him to hire free lancers for a particular period. Also with figures explain how much it will cost. Definitely it will be less than out sourcing.

    All the best!!
