Why Bangladesh for outsourcing software development service

Why Bangladesh for Outsourcing IT Services

You will get huge benefits by hiring IT engineers from Bangladesh. Such as:

1. Best quality service at low cost:

The best thing about our IT companies is that our price is relatively lower than other outsourcing countries such as India, Poland, Sri Lanka, Philippines, etc. In the current scenario, Bangladesh offers a 40% lower price tag while keeping the same service and product quality.

Now, you might be worried that the quality is compromised at such low prices but no, you will have your work ready on time with the desired features and requirements.

I highly recommend startup software companies to outsource in Bangladesh as they have limited budgets and we can provide them great service according to their requirements.

2. Increased number of software engineers:

According to BASIS (Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services), more than a hundred thousand Bangladeshi freelancers are working across the world. Currently over 70,000 IT professionals are working in around 1,500 software development in various IT industries and their excellence is well acknowledged in both domestic and international markets.

Many international IT companies have set up offshore development centers in Bangladesh such as Accenture, and IBM. We have had software companies in our country since 1980 and the volume of software projects offshoring has also doubled over the last few years.

More than 100 universities and 1400 colleges are producing around 15,000 fresh graduates in IT-related areas every year and many of them has acquired professional vendor certifications like Microsoft, Cisco, Juniper, Oracle, Linux, HP, Dell etc to meet the global competence.

3. Meets global standards by ensuring quality:

Quality of service is another key factor in outsourcing software development while keeping the cost low. You can be sure of getting your work done on time with the desired features and requirements. The IT professionals of Bangladesh are very skilled and well-trained and our government has taken steps to ensure that they keep up with the global standard.

We are proud to say that many of our bright engineers are working in prestigious IT firms worldwide such as IBM, Microsoft, Google and many more.

4. Co-operation of the Government:

Our government has been inspiring people to get more involved in the IT field. They have been running many projects to encourage youths to get involved like the “Learning and Earning Development program” where more than 15000 freelancers were developed in the last couple of years.

There are some great training centers as well that provide programs such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Social Media Marketing (SMM), Web Design, Graphic Design, Affiliate Marketing etc.

5. Opening of ICT park:

The government has decided to build a tech park in Dhaka and Jessore to promote the progress of the ICT sector. This project is in alignment with the government’s “Vision 2021” to develop Digital Bangladesh. The government has also planned to set up 12 more IT parks in 12 separate districts to speed up the process of building “Digital Bangladesh.” A Sri Lankan company has already shown an interest in developing an industry in our ongoing program.

6. Awards and Recognition:

The European Commission has selected Bangladesh as an ideal destination for outsourcing. Denmark Ambassador Einer H Jensen said, “Bangladesh has had a good start in recent times and it is a preferred destination for outsourcing IT services”.

Some of our other achievements are:

  • Bangladesh is selected as one of the best countries for IT outsourcing. Gartner Inc., the world’s leading IT and research and consultancy company publishes the list of top outsourcing countries every year and Bangladesh has made its place among them.
  • A.T. Kearney has ranked Bangladesh 22nd among 51 countries worldwide that are best for outsourcing.
  • Bangladesh became 3rd in the list of top 10 on Upwork.
  • With a low labor cost, Bangladesh has become the second-largest country in online labor supply and is one of the top 10 countries in terms of income from freelancing, ranking eighth with a growth rate of 26%. [Source]

Most startups want the absolute best developers and they would be willing to pay premium prices but in reality, many startup companies can’t afford to hire the finest developers – that’s why clients go for offshore software companies in the first place. For these startup clients who need to take advantage of overseas savings, hiring Bangladeshi software developers can be an excellent choice.
