India ranks very high in financial attractiveness, with a very low labor cost for a skilled workforce. The difference in timezones results in several pros and cons: while efficiencies can be improved with work being undertaken overnight outside of normal business hours, communication is hampered and projects are often slowed by the delay in relaying information. Additionally, work standards can be low due to poor client communication and translation issues. Additionally, India’s success has led to an explosion in development resources of dubious reliability, making it difficult to judge the viability of an Indian development company.
