Daxx Model VS Developer Hiring Platforms
Comparison of Daxx with other developer hiring platforms
Pricing: Upfront Fees and Pricing Options
Such outstaffing companies as Daxx don't require payment in advance. At the same time, such developer hiring platforms as matching services (Gun.io, TopTal), job boards (Github, Stackoverflow), and freelance services (Upwork, Freelancer) charge upfront fees.
Price is structured differently for various options — with outstaffing vendors as Daxx, your expenditures will consist of your programmers' salary and vendor's fee. Job boards, matching services, and freelance platforms usually charge either a fixed price or negotiate an hourly rate. If you outsource your project to a vendor like IBM and Accenture you'll either pay a fixed or hourly rate.
Opportunity to Build a Team
You won't build a cohesive team via hiring freelancers or using services of such developer hiring platforms as job boards and matching providers. At the same time, some project outsourcing vendors provide the opportunity to build a team.
With an outstaffing company like Daxx, you can build a full-fledged dedicated team that will work on your project full-time.
Collaboration Security and Reliability
Outstaffing and outsourcing companies are the most secure options to hire remote developers. Such companies take care of security and prove it by keeping up with the latest safety requirements and acquiring multiple international certifications.
Hiring developers on your own using developer hiring platforms — matching services (Gun.io, TopTal), freelance platforms (Upwork, Freelancer), and job boards (Github, Stackoverflow) won't bring you the necessary security level, as there are such threats as information leakage, breaches, and missed deadlines.
Level of Client Engagement
Collaboration with an outstaffing vendor requires a high level of client engagement, as the client will be responsible for managing remote developers. With such outsourcing vendors as IBM and Accenture, you won't have the opportunity to manage developers working on your project directly, so the level of client involvement is either medium or low.
While collaborating with versatile developer hiring platforms like job boards (Github, Stackoverflow) or freelance platforms (Upwork, Freelancer) you'll have to decide whether to keep developers under strict control or rely on their self-organization.
Final Decision in Hiring
With an outstaffing vendor like Daxx, you'll be the one to choose and hire the developers you like. Daxx will pre-select candidates according to your specific requirements, so you'll be able to focus on your core business responsibilities.
If you decide to hire freelancers on developer hiring platforms like Upwork and Freelancer or make use of job boards like Github and Stackoverflow, you're the one who makes the final hiring decisions.
However, if you choose to collaborate with an outsourcing partner like IBM and Accenture, you won't get the opportunity to choose and hire developers working on your project.
Widespread Use Cases
Outstaffing vendors like Daxx fit companies of different sizes — small, medium, and large. Collaboration with dedicated developers matches businesses that are looking for long-term collaboration.
If software development isn't at the core of your business, you can hire freelancers on such platforms as Upwork and Freelancer or utilize services of job boards like Github and Stackoverflow.
Project outsourcing is the model that best matches medium and large companies with predictable requirements, which ensure there'll be no need to make changes in the development process.
With an outstaffing (Daxx) and project outsourcing (IBM, Accenture) partner, your remote development team will either be distributed or collocated. It depends on whether you have developers in your local team or the whole development team is remote.
If you collaborate with such developer hiring platforms as freelance websites (Upwork, Freelancer), job boards (Github, Stackoverflow), or matching services (Gun.io, TopTal), you'll build a dispersed team, as your developers will work all around the world.
Level of Developer's Integration
Collaboration with an outstaffing vendor like Daxx presupposes a high degree of offshore developer integration. This is possible, as the model allows you to manage your remote developers directly.
A high level of remote developers' integration is impossible if you opt for collaboration with such developer hiring platforms as job boards and matching services like Github and TopTal. The same goes for outsourcing software development to such vendors as IBM and Accenture and collaborating with freelancers via platforms like Upwork and Freelancer.
