While there are many reasons Australian retail businesses child have websites developed in Australia by Australian developer companies, here are the top reasons.
- Local knowledge. Understanding how retail is transacted is Australia is vital. From the terms used to the local Aussie style. There are often disconnects when offshore web developers are used and they do not understand Australian nuances.
- Easy local access. Being able to talk with a web developer during your office hours and even face to face are factors key to successful website deployment.
- Appropriate design. There is an extraordinary difference in the design aesthetic from an Australian designer to an offshore one. By design, we mean the look and feel. You want a website that accurately reflect your business, the look and feel of your business as you see it.
- Collaboration. Thanks to easy local Aussie access you can collaborate along the way. With an offshore solution language and other factors make collaboration challenging.
- Flexibility. Working with a local web developer you are dealing with a one stop shop. With offshore developers there is often an Australian front business. They translate your requirements. Too often, things are lost in translation.
- Tweaking. Once you go live you will want to tweak the site. With offshore developers this is hard because contracts are usually fixed or, sometimes, the company disappears. They are cheap for a reason.
- Local jobs. If yours is a local retail business and you want people to shop local to support the local economy. Do it yourself. lead by example.
There are many more reasons. While there is o doubt that offshore web development is cheaper, often that turns out to be false economy.
