Offshoring has multiple benefits, especially for small and medium sized organizations (up to 300 people). Let me numerate these benefits:

Focusing on the core business

  • Focusing on the core business

Every business has a core competency. Apple's core competency isn't in manufacturing, but in designing and marketing new products. Ask yourself what is your core competence.

No Infrastructure & Office Cost
  • No Infrastructure & Office Cost

Doing IT or Software Development in-house means infrastructure and asset purchases - computers, big screens, keyboards, office space. A external vendor can take care of this for you.


No Recruitment Problems

  • No Recruitment Problems

Companies need to recruit and maintain top technical talents to manage their software development. Recruiting top technical talents or software developers is a tedious and time consuming task. We know! We have a dedicated team of Talent Acquisition Specialists (silver tongued recruiters) constantly in touch with thousands of top software developers all across Indonesia. A long hiring process needs to be followed to employ skillful staff. When you tap into an external vendor, like Wonderlabs, you tap right into a robust recruitment pipeline that gives you access to top technical talents, the very best software developers in Indonesia. Even though we only have campuses in Jogjakarta and Bandung, we search nationwide.


No Legal Liabilities

  • No Legal Liabilities

The cost of living is high where you are, compared to offshoring or outsourcing destinations like Indonesia and Vietnam. Further to the cost of living, you are supporting taxes, transport, insurance and mandatory government contributions. ODCs allow you to eliminate these payables.


Why build your offshore software development team in Indonesia?

  • Fast expanding technical and professional pool:

Indonesia has the largest technical and professional talent pool in the region. While India currently holds approximately 65% of all outsourced IT jobs, this is fast changing!

  • Effective Communication:

Effective communication plays a vital role in decision making and planning strategies. Indonesians are much more proficient in English than their counterparts in South East Asia. In fact, English is taught in primary schools in Indonesia. Many of our Wondernauts (our talents) also have received additional tuition in English.

  • Incredible Mobile Speeds:

Because Indonesia is a mobile-first country, the mobile speeds are so incredibly fast. Australians and Americans are often stunned by how rapid mobile data speeds are. You can have a 3 hour WhatsApp or Skype call without a single interruption. That really makes working with a remote team a much bigger joy.
