Pros

  • Proven robustness and performance achieved thanks to previous professional projects.
  • Reduce costs in expertise and years of development. The outsourced company already invested in them.
  • The outsourcing team is already trained. Therefore you can also save this cost.
  • A team of experts ready to help you, bringing all its experience to the project.
  • A team of expert GNC engineers is at your disposal. You do not have to worry about retaining a dedicated team.
  • Avoid the need to keep yourself updated with the same level of detail as a specialized company.
  • Quick and outstanding results in a short period of time, reducing the project's time to market.
  • The team of experts can suggest improvements to the project.
  • Benefit from qualified hardware and software required to control your platform autonomously.
  • The team can help you adapt the solution to your equirements.
  • Resolve doubts and potential issues with long-term service support.
  • Avoid team distractions from your business core tasks while developing the GNC.
  • Your internal team are the only ones to know the specific requirements to develop the GNC.

Cons

  • The Intellectual Property (IP) of the GNC does not belong to your company.
  • If a potential issue arises your company depends on an external team.
  • Third-party providers may have other business priorities. Other projects or developments can monopolize the team's attention, delaying the start of your project.
  • You will have to share some valuable or confidential information about the project with the service provider.
  • Not all companies have the relevant and trustworthy experience to deliver your project successfully. It should have a very well-trained team with an outstanding industry background.
  • Time to market or to finish the project stage cannot be reduced to zero, as the outsourced team should know and understand the external platform specifics.
