How we saved over 30 000 EUR for creative Agency in Amsterdam

It's no secret that development costs have risen over the last couple of years, markets are saturated, and it's getting harder and harder to find high-quality development partners. That's why lately there has been a lot of discussion about the benefits of outsourcing your IT to cheaper markets.


It's also no secret that Latvia has been one of prime IT development outsource providers, known for their strong developers but small, therefore cheaper IT market. To put it in perspective, the average hourly rate in UK and Amsterdam for development hovers around 60 EUR per hour, opposed to 35-45 EUR in Latvia. Over the last year, we here at Netcore have been actively working with international partners, providing full stack services - from concepts and designs to full development and active project support. One of the prime outsource partners in 2018 have been Amsterdams creative Agency Keplar. They initially reached out to us with urgent need - they lost their previous development partners, deadlines were closing in and they needed someone to step up and finish the project in a couple of weeks. Not an unusual situation for us.


Needless to say - we delivered. We buckled down, created fast-paced, sprint based development plan, and knocked that baby out of the park. But this was only the start of our partnership. Over the next 6 months, we worked and finished all their active development projects, in total working on 3 different platforms and various mobile applications. In this time span in total we clocked in over 1300 development hours, resulting in around 32 500 EUR saving for our new found partner.

This is just one of our outsource partners, but we feel like this perfectly showcases not only the quality that Latvian development agencies provide but also the raw financial benefit of working with us. Read about the projects developed
