What does a customer expects when they outsource their software development needs?

Normally customer decides to outsource their software development needs when they don’t have an in house expertise to execute such projects, or to reduce the cost of development. So what does a customer expects when they decide to outsource their software development needs ?

Well, in many case the customer expects the vendor to create a solution for their problem or for their new business vision. But the vendor will charge on an hourly basis instead of charging for the solution they create.

Yes, the vendor provides a service but why charge for the hours spent? Customer didn’t came to us to pay for the hours we spent, he came to us to solve his business problem or to create new solution for his business vision. Though it’s a service that is being rendered this doesn’t have to happen in this way.

For example when we go to a Hospital to get a surgery done they will charge us for the surgery done as a complete package & not for the hours they spend. What happens if the Hospital charge us for the hours spent? Well, in that case the surgery will never get completed because they are getting paid for the hours spent & not for completing the surgery. It will be totally meaningless. But unfortunately in software development this same model is being followed (charging a customer for the hours spent).

Conclusion

In conclusion, when a customer comes to us asking us to solve his business problem or to create a software application as per his vision & we in return charging him for the hours our employees spend looks totally meaningless.

Software companies should look at solving customer problem or creating a software application as per customer needs & charge for the final solution/package that we deliver & not for the hours our employees spend. Why should any customer pay for the hours our employees spend?

I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!

  31. Sounds like a good business model until the customer finds out they do not own the solution the software company was only hired to developed and not publicly resale – If you wish to own the solution you need to separate with the coin, and that may be legal, R&D, Development, Deployment, Training, support all at hourly rate (or long term agreement that will ensure the software company will be able to recoup costs) – in some countries ownership is automatically given to the creator as sub-contractor this means unless the software company is actively informing the customer (who many don’t) who owns the solution. The customer may be at risk paying for a solution for the whole industry and this includes the customer’s competitors. in short unless the customer owns the solution how would a software company stay in business if they are not actively reselling to others. – and if a software company develops a solution to a very specific problem in a very specific industry then there is only one customer that will buy…. the customers competitor, all of them! i’m not suggesting this is case here just adding my thoughts to the topic.

  32. I am really grateful to the holder of this web site having shared this
