Indeed, the cost of hiring full-time senior-level engineers has increased significantly, with annual salaries often exceeding $150,000. Additionally, managing a full-time team can be burdensome, and finding highly skilled professionals can be challenging. Building a web application often requires different areas of expertise, but not all of them are needed simultaneously.
When hiring a full-time team, you have to bear the cost of the entire team, regardless of whether their skills are currently required. Software agencies tend to charge more due to administrative fees and the need to scale their operations. Moreover, starting a project with an agency involves time-consuming activities such as discovery, contract negotiations, proposal-making, and scope definition. Adapting to changing requirements can be difficult in such scenarios.
With a monthly plan, you have the flexibility to prioritize tasks based on your needs, rather than trying to keep everyone busy. The relevant experts will be assigned as required for each task. For example, you may choose to focus on redesigning your website one week and then make changes to your mobile app the following week, which may involve different areas of expertise. This flexibility allows you to utilize the right resources for each specific task.
Additionally, you have the freedom to pause or resume your subscription as needed, ensuring that you only pay for the services when you have work available. This approach helps you optimize costs and ensures that you are in control of your development resources.
