Use our codevelopment

Almost like outsourcing model, except for a few important details

The whole team shares the same processes and tools which leads to better transparency and integration and the feedback loop is fast and effective which gives you greater control. We share your processes, culture and the tools you are used to – just exactly as your in-house people do. In spite of being fully remote, we work in close cooperation with your team and communicate frequently.

Almost like hiring model, except for a few important details

It’s more efficient to hire a well-coordinated team than employees one by one. We provide a Scrum Master – the team is externally coached and your managers don’t have to take care of daily operations. You can focus on your business, business scope and what’s the most valuable. In addition, codevelopment brings easy way to access talented senior developers and additional skillset.

  • Hardware and working space
No extra expenses
  • Companies usually estimate more time needed “just in case” (and you usually pay it)
Cooperation Close cooperation as one team.
Using the same tools, same methodologies and culture.
Absolutely different methodologies, tools. Usually no cooperation between teams.
Flexibility Flexible in daily operations, hiring and firing can be an issue (especially in EU). Flexible in daily operations, hiring and firing is not a problem. Usually less flexible in daily operations, hiring and firing is not a problem
Requirements on your management Your managers need to manage daily operations, cooperation and scope of work. Education of the people and their motivation is on you. You can focus on your business, business scope and what’s the most valuable. Daily operations and other issues are managed by us.
Ability to acquire talent Usually limited to the area that is reachable by you. Better as the talent pool is shared between the company and the business partner. Much easier if you adopt remote codevelopment like we do in Flexiana.

You get direct access to a big pool of talent.
Better as the talent pool is shared. But the talent is in some way separated from the company, so it is not so valuable.
