5 Benefits To Hiring A Development Agency Vs In-House Developers

When looking to start a new project for your business, it can be a tough choice deciding whether to utilize a third-party development agency or a team of in-house developers. If your company already has an in-house development team, their resources may be stretched thin tackling a new project. A development agency can provide the right solution that aligns with your business goals.

A Complete Solution

Working with an established development agency can provide your business with a complete solution customized to your project needs. Agencies bring a multitude of facets to the table. When you hire a development agency, you’re hiring a one-stop shop for design, development, and deployment. Agencies can provide your business with front-end solutions, back-end solutions, mobile apps, machine learning, artificial intelligence, you name it.

Past Experience

Development agencies provide a combined amount of experience that will ensure your project is delivered to your standards. When working with an agency, your development team will have peers to rely on to help them solve all of the sticky problems that building an app can throw at them. Agencies can draw on past project experiences to ensure that new projects start and end efficiently, saving you money in the end.


If you’re unsure about the scope and scale of your project, leave it to an agency and their experts to guide you during the initial phases of development. Chances are experts within the agency have the knowledge and will suggest the most reliable way to execute what you have in mind. Agencies are very good at adapting to change during the project life cycle whenever necessary. The flexibility of an agency will help make the process of completing a project much less of a headache than using a lone developer who cannot be an expert at all types of software.

Development Tools

There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes when building a new application like continuous integration, continuous deployment, version control, bug tracking, and team communication. When you work with an agency, there are typically no extra fees for the tools used to carry out these tasks, much like a handyman doesn’t charge you for using a hammer. It’s a great idea to ask what development tools are included in the project cost, just so you are not surprised by any hidden costs.

Project Management

Project management is an often overlooked, but very important part of the development process. The project manager will help facilitate client and agency communication with one another. Project managers also make sure that the development process is proceeding as scheduled. If problems do arise, project managers will intervene and provide needed communication to help resolve the issue. This ensures that there are minimal hiccups during the timeline of the project.
