Hello Michael, 

Based on my own experience, I was on both sides, I can recommend you to outsource development process in few next cases: 
1) You have clear idea of the goal/result 
2) You need fast MVP
3) You have long time project, more than 6 months 

We have team of developers in Ukraine and working as outsource as well. In cases I've listed above we were bring best money value for our partners. 

The most risky to outsource flexible product development, when you are still in seeking for ideal solution. The lack of local communication could be a reason of expensive misunderstanding. 

Outsource could save you money, this is true. Be careful with your outsource development partner. The simplest way to exclude unprofessional players is listen questions they asks. If distant team ready to take any tasks and don't ask you about your business or tech goals, planned infrastructure etc. You have a reason to ask yourself, maybe they don't care about your success.  

Be free to drop me a line and discuss more. 

Kind Regards, 
Roman

Hi Michael,
well, I think outsourcing is easy, the hard part if find the right team. 
I'm on the other side, companies, mostly startups, come to us seeking help with the development and management of their projects. We've help startups grow into successful business. And over the years it all come together because we grow our business with new clients that are the referrals of those same companies we helped. So the bottom line I think its that you need to search an offshore company that meets the following criteria:

  • The timezone needs to be as much aligned as possible with yours, they need to work at the same time you're working, this is a great plus to improve communications
  • If the company can provide referrals for you to talk to and validate the work they have done in the past, that is a big plus.
I hope my comments are of help to you.
Best.
