This article will discuss Clutch’s top 10 software development companies in Vietnam. We will also examine the components to look for that make up a good software development company, so that you can find the best developer possible when you are outsourcing in Vietnam.

Why Choose Vietnam?

Software development outsourcing is a growing business tactic used by companies to have access to a wider talent pool and land better rates on software development projects and to increase their productive hours. Among the top locations to outsource to, Vietnam is at the top of that list.

The benefits of outsourcing in Vietnam is a long list, but there are a few main reasons for any company to come to Vietnam to get work done.  

Companies looking to outsource abroad are typically outsourcing with a few things in mind before they decide on an agency to work with: talent, rate, and communication skills. 

You want to hire engineers/developers that are capable of doing the project with the expertise needed to make sure the project is accomplished just as you envision it. Another issue that you may consider when collaborating with offshore outsourcing, is dealing with the communication and language barrier. You want to make sure the company you’re working with understands your goals and priorities, they can communicate all issues in an upfront and transparent manner, and their work ethic resonates with yours. 

Talented Developers

Vietnam has experienced a surge in talented developers that have joined the workforce. Vietnam has put an emphasis on training more of its workforce for the tech sector, so they have been actively opening schools to teach engineers. With a push from government investment and a focused effort to grow the country’s tech sector, Vietnam workers are expected to continue to grow their IT proficiency in the coming years. 

Excellent English Skills

Vietnam workers are thoroughly experienced in the English language. Since most of the software engineers that you would be employing are college graduates, they have taken classes in English over the years, so will likely have proficient abilities in English. 

With good communication skills in English, it makes it that much easier for offshore outsourcing. If you are interested in any software engineering work or business process outsourcing then you’d expect to have top-notch communication skills.

Good Rates

The outsourcing market in Vietnam is among the most affordable options available. The cost of developing in Vietnam is very enticing and a great deal considering the talent that you get in return. You will get excellent quality talent for a reasonable rate – whether you are looking for software development or perhaps just business process outsourcing.

Modern Business Hubs

If you do decide to outsource to Vietnam, you may decide to visit the developer’s office to check in on the progress of the project and to meet your team. Vietnam is an easy country to visit with direct flights from the United States to Ho Chi Minh City. The software development centers of the country are primarily based in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, the country’s capital. The brightest of Vietnam’s workers are concentrated in these few cities which makes the process of searching for talent more focused.

How Software Outsourcing Works

If you haven’t used software outsourcing for your business before, we will explain a bit about the process involved with outsourcing services. 

In short, when you partner with a software outsourcing company they will begin by deciding what type of project they are undertaking.

Do you need software development or just software testing, like QA? Perhaps just a particular business process outsourcing? These are some of the questions that will need to be answered before a team can be compiled.

Once the project is determined, then they can assemble a team that holds expertise with the necessary technology stack. Depending on your software development methodology, you can even put together a team that works in Agile development, to make the delivery process even more efficient.

From there, they will assemble a team that possesses expertise in the technologies that you need. A project leader will manage the team members that have been selected for this project, usually consisting of an array of engineers and developers that are suited for the various components of this project.
