      A close friend travels the world arranging such deals. The lesson he learned is it’s never a good idea to go with the lowest price or a company that exploits the workers.

      The biggest issue they tell me is the projects must be large enough to support outsourcing. If the job is small then you are best trying on sites similar to Upwork.

      By project size, I’ll pick the breakeven point to be north of 1 million USD. Otherwise there is usually no budget to travel to the outsource location to work out the issues.

      Lastly many projects say they want to outsource but they never created the all important design documents.

          Yes and I think quality should be more important than low price.

          I’ve done such work as well. My friend has done far more. While there is a lot to cover for such offshoring, the recurring theme is project size and ability of the company to foot the bills for travel and more. Many companies get sticker shock that it costs to offshore hence him and I won’t look at a project under 1 mill USD.

          So does the size of your company matter?

          For the projects my friends and I worked on, it was simply about if the company had the funds to pay for the project. For example the last project was a custom vehicle tracker. Development costs ran into a few million for a product that costs about 99USD!

          yes and I think Evaluate cost-effectiveness, not cost. company should be able to monitor the project efficiently.
