Which nearshoring model will benefit your company more?


Which staffing solution is best for your project? Team Extension or a specialized development team?

When searching for the right nearshoring model for outsourcing IT services and software development, you have probably come across the terms “team extension” and “specialised development teams”. Although they may seem similar at first glance, there are significant differences between these two staffing solutions that can affect the success of your project. While team extension closes individual skill gaps in the short term, the specialised development team offers a holistic, cooperative and supportive approach.

Team extension: Additional expert(s) for your existing team

With team extension, we temporarily add one or more independent experts to your existing team in order to close certain skills gaps. This model is particularly suitable if you need specific skills for a limited period of time – e.g. until a project is completed – or if you are looking for a specialist to solve a specific problem.

The advantages

  • You can react quickly and flexibly
  • You save time and money because recruitment, onboarding and payrolling are eliminated
  • You benefit from the experience and know-how of external experts
  • The specialists carry out certain tasks at short notice

However, if you are faced with a wider range of missing specialists, it may be necessary to involve more than just individual specialists. In this case, the specialised development team model is suitable.

Specialised development team: A complete team for your project

In this model, we put together a complete team of one or more developers who integrate seamlessly into your project team. You have full control over project management and take the lead. Employees contribute their skills, experience and methodology and work independently and autonomously. The involvement of a specialized development team therefore goes beyond simply supplementing your team with specialist knowledge.

The advantages

  • You get a complete, qualified team for your project
  • You save time and money on recruitment and coordination
  • You benefit from the efficiency and innovation of the development team
  • Project management and leadership of the team remain within your company
