The Only Software Development Company Your Project Needs

A managed DT model is the intermediate option between a staff augmentation and a completely outsourced solution. In this scenario, the right 👨‍💼 project manager and QA (quality assurance) specialist are the essential parts of a strong autonomous agile team. This product development approach allows us to share the risk and responsibility for delivering final results.

“The key for us, number one, has always been hiring very smart people.” — Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft Corporation

What should you expect when you choose Echo to build your dedicated software development team? Let’s take a closer look.

  1. Limited integration: The remote dedicated team does not fully merge with your in-house colleagues, as opposed to the staff augmentation model and operates more independently.
  2. Long-term partnership: This collaboration model is ideal for executing extensive, long-term projects with frequently changing requirements. The DT works full-time on the project and you can directly communicate with each team member. This allows for greater flexibility in terms of work scope, tasks, costs, resources. In this arrangement, we act more like a reliable partner rather than a temporary service provider.
  3. Deeper understanding of your business: Dedicated team members immerse themselves in your business without distractions from other projects. They gain a better understanding of the development processes and ultimate goals, enabling them to focus more on delivering results.
  4. Shared responsibilities: We build a remote team and handle people management, while other responsibilities and risks are distributed shared both parties.

Dedicated Dev Teams

The region boasts a vast pool of highly skilled, multilingual developers who possess deep technical expertise and are available at competitive rates. Eastern European countries such as Poland, Ukraine, Romania or Bulgaria are also known for their robust educational systems, which produce a steady stream of talented graduates in computer science and engineering.

Additionally, the region’s favorable time zone alignment allows for seamless collaboration with both American (East Coast) and European counterparts, fostering productivity and innovation. As a result, choosing Eastern Europe as the hub for your remote dedicated team can lead to significant cost savings, accelerated project timelines and an overall competitive edge in the global market.

Pros & Cons of the DT Model

Some of the tangible benefits include:

  • Full commitment to one project, ensuring that all members focus on the same goals and objectives without distractions from other projects or tasks.
  • A team structure can be quickly scaled up or down according to project requirements, allowing for a more efficient allocation of resources and adapting to changes in project scope or timelines.
  • While the initial costs of setting up a team may be higher, the long-term benefits of having a focused, specialized team can lead to cost savings through increased efficiency and reduced product delays.
  • A dedicated development team can be better aligned with your organizational culture and values, which can lead to a more harmonious and successful working relationship.

Despite having its advantages, there some disadvantages:

  • A dedicated team often implies a long-term commitment to a project, which may not be suitable for short-term or experimental projects.
  • Assembling a new team or integrating new specialists into an existing dev formation may require a significant amount of time for onboarding, training and familiarization with product requirements.
  • People can be distributed across multiple locations, leading to potential communication issues and difficulties in establishing a shared vision and clear expectations.
  • Relying on a single team for a project can create a dependency, potentially causing delays or other issues if team members leave or face unexpected challenges.
