Software Outsourcing To Poland
Poland has a good relationship with and respect for Western countries, including the U.S. Large U.S. companies such as Intel and Motorola have set up operations in Poland. Generally, these operations are for research and development of both hardware and software. Several special economic zones (SEZ), in which companies enjoy tax incentives, have been defined by the Polish government.
The Accelerance Global Partner Network includes one team from Poland that has been thoroughly screened and vetted.
Working with outsourcers in Poland – Pluses
Poland has also become a manufacturing center for many European companies. Therefore, embedded software and other software that is closely related to hardware is often outsourced to Poland.
You will likely be able to find a Polish programming team that has mastered the particular software technology you need. Anyone with sophisticated software that will benefit from collaborating with a well-educated programming team should seriously consider Poland. Software applications requiring scientific knowledge are particularly well suited, as are projects for embedded systems or those using languages like C and C++.
Working with outsourcers in Poland – Minuses
Membership in the EU and close proximity to Western Europe as a market for custom software development has caused rates in the major cities of Poland to be higher than most other offshore destinations.
Software used to automate business processes or more mundane data processing tasks will not make use of the advanced skills of most Polish programming teams and could be tackled with a level of enthusiasm below what you need.
